We just got back from a 10 day trip to CA. Two of those days were spent in Monterey and Carmel. WE stayed two nights at the Portola and couldn't have been more pleased. We were located toward the back of the hotel and had no noise at all. Our room had a balcony that really didn't look over anything but was nice to let in cool air at night along with a ceiling fan.
At check-in they gave my daughter a stuffed whale that normally costs $8.00 at the counter. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was also a whale in the bathtub to play with as your children bathe. My duaghter loved that!!!
The beds were VERY comfortable, so much so that we slept in late both days. The staff were great and the location to the wharf was excellent. We drove to the Cannery but that only took 3 minutes, you could walk it.
We also saw Meg Ryan checking out of this hotel and was told that she stays there frequently when she is in that area!!!!
