We were happy with our 4 night stay in Monterey. The location was perfectly situated within walking distance to the Fisherman's Wharf and nearby restaurants. The lobby is beautifully decorated with holiday lights and comfortable chairs. The staff were very helpful and friendly, providing us guidance with directions and any questions we had. The room was clean and spacious with very comfortable beds and fully equipped bathroom. The poolside and jacuzzi are open until 10pm and well kept. In addition, Jack's bar lounge and restaurant provided a relaxing atmosphere and were convenient for room service as well as dining in. There is also a pub called Peter B's where you can try different microbreweries in a casual atmosphere to hang out and watch the game on TV by the bar.
Adjacent to the lobby are several stores displaying fashionwear, jewelry and sunglasses. We did not have time to experience the spa which provides a variety of services such as facials, massages and herbal treatments. There are also conference rooms located on the third floor.l
All in all, Portola Hotel and Spa is a conveniently located, well decorated, plush and friendly place to stay in Monterey. We give it 5 stars and will stay there during our next visit there.
