“The Perfect Choice in Sedona” (Reviewed 4/10/12)
Our family of 4 (2 adults – 2 kids aged 7 & 9) stayed for 7 nights in the gorgeous suite #12. We had a lovely fireplace, beautiful living area and a private bedroom. Windows were everywhere offering exquisite views of the mountains. The hotel itself is warm, inviting and absolutely beautiful. El Portal gets everything right – from the amazing breakfast to the comfortable laid back atmosphere of the courtyard where we sat by the fire and enjoyed the evenings with a great glass of wine from the kitchen. It was like staying in the home we’ve always wanted! The owners, Steve and Connie are a delight (as are all the wonderful people who work at the Inn) – Steve helped us plan activities each day and always recommended the best hikes and adventures for us. I would highly recommend El Portal over a resort – it was much more unique. Plus, there is a resort within walking distance where El Portal guests have access to a pool, tennis courts, mini golf and playground. It could not have been a better choice. We left wanting more. I highly recommend you take Condé Nast’s advice and try it! (Alison392, Chicago, IL.)
“Condé Nast got it right!” (Reviewed 4/10/12)
“Why Condé Nast selected El Portal Sedona as one of “The Top 50 Small Hotels in the WORLD” is apparent from the moment you approach the property.
The location is wonderful. The reception/restaurant area is equally wonderful and, once you get a glimpse of the rooms…you’re hooked! Actually, “room” doesn’t do them justice. Most are suites and the decor is too special for words! Check out some of the photos. You’ll be sold!
If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton you’re in the wrong place. But, if you appreciate a relaxed, social atmosphere with hand crafted rustic elegance, a staff that strives to make every moment memorable and owner/innkeepers that truly care about how you are and what they can do to make your stay even more pleasant, you’re in the right place. Steve and Connie have created a Remington type masterpiece that will make you want to return before you ever leave!
Enjoy!” (Jeff D. Beaumont, CA).
“An Amazing Property” (Reviewed 4/7/12)
If you want a predictable resort with obsequious service and homogenous opulence, don’t come here. You can find that anywhere in the world. If you’d prefer a unique, personally tailored experience with a different kind of luxury delivered with casual integrity and a genuine “we can do that” attitude, try El Portal. It is no coincidence that it is listed among the top 50 small hotels in the world by Conde Nast, 2011. Give up your preconceptions of luxury and immerse yourself in an experience that will make you challenge your future vacations to measure up. (DocAnn, Olathe, KS.)
