This is our 4th visit to this fabulous 12-room inn. We keep coming back because it feels like home. Steve and Connie, the awesome owners, as well as the staff (Terri, Fran, Esperanza, More and Sylvia), treat us like family and provide the utmost in service. You couldn't ask for better people. The inn has 12 rooms and each one is decorated differently. We stayed in Room 9 - The Rim Room. This room is upstairs and is very spacious with nice views from the L-shaped windows. The distinctly crafted wood furniture provides a pleasant ambiance. After a hard day of hiking, it's nice to come back to a cozy room where you can relax and recuperate. We took a soothing jacuzzi bath after climbing to the top of Cathedral Rock and found this to be a much-needed treat. You will also sleep most soundly in the comfortable king bed.
El Portal is most conveniently located in the Historic Arts District, where there are many shops, museums and restaurants, including the Tlaquepaque shopping plaza, which is a short walking distance from the inn. Two other districts are close by: Uptown - which is just a 3-min drive away, where there are a myriad of shops and restaurants, and West Sedona - which is a 3-min. drive in the other direction, where you'll also find many restaurants, markets and shops, as well as great places to hike.
On the food front, El Portal delivers. You can partake of delicious breakfasts consisting of huevos rancheros, lemon pancakes, breakfast burritos, cinnamon French toast and more in the beautiful great room. You will see many canines around and every one of them is well behaved. In the late afternoon, you’ll find quesadillas, chips, salsa, fruit and cookies, just enough to hold you over until dinner.
In the cool evenings, it was a pleasure to be welcomed back by a great smelling fire in the courtyard.
If you are searching for a cozy, one-of-a-kind place, where you can relax and rejuvenate, El Portal fits the bill, bar none.
