“Better than advertised” (Reviewed May 7, 2012 )
“What a great place! Everyone in my group was impressed with their rooms, the service and Steve and Connie’s hospitality. Have already recommended to several friends in Telluride.” (Warner P)
“El Portal Hotel – Sedona – truly extraordinary!” (Reviewed May 6, 2012)
“This was our first visit to Sedona and we were two out of a group of eight. One of our friends knew someone in Sedona who recommended the “El Portal Sedona” as THE place to stay for our visit. WOW! AMAZING! INCREDIBLE! The owners, Steve & Connie, have created a magical atmosphere in an intimate setting – combined with “over the top” hospitality. It’s a small, elegant, intimate property – only 12 rooms. Each one is uniquely decorated with an eclectic collection of antiques and special furniture. The rooms open to a courtyard with a firepit and comfy Adirondack chairs. At night, the vines overhead are sofly illuminated – adding to the magic of El Portal.
When we arrived, Steve & Connie showed each of us to our rooms and told us “We want you to feel like guests in our home…” and that they did – over and over again! It hotel is a pet friendly hotel and the pets we saw were also having a great time. Steve & Connie know just about all there is to know about Sedona and they helped us maximize our time and experience. I can’t describe how nice and accomodating they were. Try this place. You’ll love it and want to go back and experience it again. Simply outstanding!!!!!” (Dennis H, Long Beach, CA)
“Idyllic setting, great location” (Reviewed May 5, 2012)
“Four perfect days for four couples in the heart of Sedona. We researched this one thoroughly including recommendations from locals and it paid off. Small and quaint, built new to be old, very comfortable, and in the perfect Sedona location, surrounded by great shops, galleries, and restaurants. Like staying in a warm and interesting home. The owners, Steve and Connie, couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful. Make time to talk to Steve–fascinating history, knowledge, and energy.” (Chip A)
