We Adore El Portal Sedona… And We're Not Alone

Sedona Hotels - Top Picks

Andrew Harper, well known as "A Connoisseur's Guide to Peaceful and Unspoiled Places," loved visiting El Portal Hotel so much, in 2004, he graced the place with his…

Grand Award for Best Hotel of the Year

In his Hideaway Report, he called it a "charming… authentic… truly unique and luxurious in-town retreat." For it's understated elegance, high comfort, and thoughtful amenities, El Portal Sedona is already a stand out.

And what we love most about El Portal is its down-to-earth, natural vibe and, most especially, its extraordinarily well-crafted architecture and divine décor. Staying here is like being transported to another time… circa 1910…

The Overall Look and Feel

It looks and feels like an authentic turn-of-the-century Spanish hacienda. With beautiful center courtyard and fountain. And an abundance of natural materials, creating cozy "outdoors-inside" spaces.

Meticulously designed, lovingly built, and conscientiously decorated, this is one "reproduction" that has fully realized its inspiration. And offers guests a one-of-a-kind Sedona AZ vacation stay.

In fact, Steve Segner, the very hands-on owner, personally carved the entrance doors to each of the 12 rooms available at his Lodge. His aim is for you to feel at home in a "very special and relaxing private" place.

Here are some details on what you'll find at El Portal:

  • Hand sculpted adobe walls that are 18 inches thick
  • High ceilings with raw word beams
  • A variety of vintage woods, like old timbers and organic peeled juniper
  • Interior surfaces that are smoothed and rounded
  • Special river rocks and stones
  • A sprinkling of gallery quality decorative tiles

The Amenities

Beyond the visual feast, you'll also be welcomed to a delightful offering of afternoon hors d'oeuvres and wine, which is included with your stay. There's an open kitchen, so if you're looking for a nosh at an unlikely hour, you'll probably be accommodated.

This is not a bed and breakfast, but gorgeous morning meals can be enjoyed here, à la carte. This gourmet nourishment can also be delivered to your room, if you like. Substitutions and special dietary requests, are cheerfully prepared.

Fine evening meals might be enjoyed at Tlaquepaque Sedona which is few steps near El Portal Hotel. There are 5 restaurants there, including René at Tlaquepaque, one of our Top 3 Sedona Restaurants Picks, which offers fine French fare with Southwestern touches.

And, Tlaquepaque has 35 more venues that include some of the best Sedona AZ shopping, Sedona art galleries, and a variety of delightful boutique shops.

Rates, Notes & Directions

This is a very pet-friendly place, even for large pets. And kids are also very welcome here.

Rates range from about $200 to $500, per night, per couple. Pricey? For those who can afford it, I think it's El Portal Hotel is the best value in town.

Personal Note: El Portal Sedona is my #1 favorite of ALL Sedona Arizona hotels.
