Good location, not great. A great location would be closer to the Cannery Row area. This is close to the Wharf area. Open windows were a necessity due to the warmth. No A/C, and this hotel is showing its age. Wifi is not free in the rooms, and figuring out which Wifi selection to make is a brain teaser. Bar drinks are quite expensive, but there are numerous other options close-by. Hotel is adjacent to the bike path, so if you are bike touring this location is good. Stayed at the Portola five nights for this visit. Starbucks is across the street, but a collegue of mine said the breakfast place on the mall-side of the parking garage was a good place as well. Dinner places abound in downtown and Cannery Row (stay away from wharf).
