Artists, spiritualists, and alternative healing practitioners are drawn to the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. It’s a magnificent backdrop for relaxing and rejuvenating, for a romantic getaway, or for adventure. And it’s in the high desert where there’s a mild year-round climate.
And now it’s the site of the "Best Pet Friendly Hotel." 10Best.com's Readers' Choice contest, sponsored by USA Today, placed Sedona’s El Portal at the top of the list.
This unique handcrafted hacienda is built in authentic 1910 adobe style, with climate-controlling 18” walls, vintage timbers and local rock, with a central courtyard and covered passageways (portals). It’s Southestern style at its best.
Other properties that made the list are #2 Red Mountain Resort - St. George, Utah, #3 The Benjamin - New York City, New York, #4. Fairmont, Washington, D.C., #5 Hotel Monaco, Alexandria, Virginia, #6. W Hotel Midtown, Atlanta, Georgia, #7 Loews Coronado Bay Resort , San Diego, California, #8 The Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado, #9 The Loden, Vancouver, Canada, and #10 Galleria Park Hotel, San Francisco, California.
From September 1st through 19th, El Portal is offering a great deal. Stay one night and receive the second night free for stays Sunday-Thursday.
Included in this deal is a $100 credit for a 2-hour jeep tour excursion with Safari Jeep Adventures, one of the best ways to explore the magnificent rocks. And, best of all for pet owners, there are no additional fees if you bring your pet.
