Great location

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: The location is great. It is an easy walk to Cannery row and the warf.
Cons: The pool was closed due to maintenance. This should have been disclosed at the time of booking.
Location: We found a great bistro within walking distance. Montrio Bistro.
We stayed in this hotel for three nights in June. The hotel was comfortable and clean.

Great place to stay

I enjoy staying here although it is a little pricy. The breakfast buffet is over priced.

Perfect location to the wharf, beach and plenty of coffee shops, boutiques and restuarants. Kid friendly and open spaces to feel like you're not imposing on those 'not so thrilled about kids'.

Familiar Hotel still pleases

Posted Jun 3, 2015
Pros: Very good staff and facilities. Jack's Bar (happy hour) and Restaurant are very good. Ease of arrival and departure.
Location: Cannery Row. The Aquarium. Restaurants.The pier with lots of kid's stuff to do.
We have stayed at the Portola several times before on business. In this case we were returning from a family wedding in the wine country on our way back to Los Angeles. So this was our "rest and relax" stop. The hotel is very conveniently located near major tourist attractions and the facilities and staff are first rate. Try Jack's Bar for a relaxing start to your evening. Jack's Restaurant next door is quite good. In addition, there are very good seafood restaurants within easy walking distance. Arrival and departure are exceptionally easy.

Ask guest service to use microwave temporarily. They said you could go to neighbour Marriott hotel. Unacceptable!
