We stayed at Portola Hotel and Spa in November 2013 and really enjoyed ourselves! The lobby is beautiful and they give you cookies when you check in. Rooms were very comfortable with all necessary amenities and your own personal Keurig! This is a very GREEN hotel so I don't believe their is A/C but we didn't need it in November. We kept our window open and could hear the sea lions! Speaking of that...the location is the best thing about this property! You can walk out the lobby door and practically walk onto the Wharf! So nice to be able to be within walking distance of good restaurants. But, you don't have to leave your hotel for good food! Jacks was great and the hotel also has a great Brewery Restaurant as well (can't remember name). If I had to critique anything I would say the walls are very thin...very very thin... However, I would stay here again. Great for couples or families. It's a tad pricy but I think if you just want to experience Monterey, this is a great place to stay to do it.
