Hi, I’m Steve Segner, owner of El Portal Sedona Hotel, a boutique hotel in the heart of Sedona. And I LOVE MY JOB! I am so fortunate to meet so many different people from all walks of life, every day. I love to visit with them, talk about their plans for the day, etc. In our talks, people usually want to know how old El Portal Sedona Hotel is. When they find out that it was only finished in 2003 they are SHOCKED! 

This is our story of El Portal – our historically accurate, labor of love, pet friendly inn.

Here is a tiny review of the book from “xmyshmrx” on TripAdvisor…

“A teaser visit, but just enough to be sad to leave
We stayed in the Governor’s suite and it was just stunning. The pictures do no justice. I read Steve’s story online before booking and just felt drawn to the story, intrigued by what went into making El Portal a dream come true for him and Connie and I wanted to stay in one of the nicest rooms available. We were made to feel very welcome by the lovely Carol. My son scarfed down the delicious chocolate chip cookies which were offered complimentary in our room. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub next door at Los Abrigados. If we come back to Sedona, we will stay at least one night at El Portal. We were very impressed, comfortable and felt right at home. Sad to leave for Atlanta today… We will be back.”
