How it Ranks: Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay ranks #11 out of 109 Monterey Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: Sitting near the center of Monterey, the Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay welcomes guests with warm cookies at the front desk and a wide array of family-friendly services. Kids can find their sea legs in the Portola Pirates program — participants will receive welcome gifts upon arrival and throughout their stay. Meanwhile, recent visitors compliment the comfortable beds, the spacious rooms and the private balconies found in the guest rooms, and pet parents were thrilled with Portola's pet-friendly policies. Guests also appreciate the free shuttle service to and from Cannery Row (although the 15-minute walk to and from the hotel is also enjoyable). During your stay you should also check out the Portola's spa, fitness center and the on-site Peter B's Brewpub, Monterey's only craft brewery.
