Great spot for our convention-and for relaxing afterwards!

I was in Monterey for a business convention, and the coordinating committee chose the Portola Hotel and Spa. I could not have asked for a better choice. The lobby is beautiful, spacious and relaxing with its atrium design and lighting. My room was super-comfortable, and I appreciated having a nice hotel bathrobe to snuggle up in at the end of the day. I also appreciated that the hotel was so thoughtful as to have an extra duvet in the closet if I needed it, instead of me having to call the guest housekeeping services. I started coming down with a cold during my stay (NOT the hotel's fault!) and one of the hotel staff took the extra trouble of hunting down a box of assorted herbal teas for me, and giving me extra tea bags so that I could relax with a hot cup of tea in my room--without asking me for my room number so that the hotel could charge me for that. I will definitely stay here the next time I visit Monterey on personal business. I could not have asked for better service.

Visit to Portola Hotel

Excellent hotel experience, while attending WS-AUA conference in the adjacent Monterey Conference Center. Have attended in past years, and look forward to another similar event. Thanks for hour support and help.

Business conference

Excellent in all aspects. Loved Monterey. The hotel is centrally located and staff gave excellent directions to points of interest. Meeting rooms were well maintained. My only suggestion is to not limit this question to 200 words minimum. I am a believer of being succinct
