Overview

Ideal location for convention attendees
Hotel and adjacent convention center undergoing renovations until spring 2017

Recent guests were a bit divided with their assessments of the Portola Hotel & Spa. Some said it's the best place to stay in Monterey, California, while others said it's better suited to convention attendees (the property sits just steps from the Monterey Convention Center). The fact that the convention center is currently undergoing renovations was another sticking point for some lodgers, who said the construction noise takes away from the property's tranquility. The hotel's rooms received better reviews; past guests loved the nautical decor and amenities like Keurig coffee makers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access (for direct bookings only). The hotel also boasts a 6,000-square-foot day spa and fitness center, which houses a salon, 10 treatment rooms, and an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. You'll also find three restaurants on-site – a brewpub, a breakfast-focused eatery and Jacks Monterey, which serves California cuisine. Though reviewers were generally pleased with the on-site dining options, they also suggested exploring Monterey's dining scene – an easy feat thanks to the hotel's central location near the city's Old Fisherman's Wharf.
