Portola Hotel and Spa

We stayed at the Portola Hotel and Spa in Monterey Bay. If you find yourself in Monterey Bay this is a great hotel to stay in. It was a 5 minute walk to the wharf, about a 5 min drive to Cannery Row and the aquarium and a 10 minute drive to Carmel.  The hotel itself was lovely.  The first image is of the side courtyard of the hotel. Straight through this courtyard is the short walk to Fisherman’s Wharf. The second image is the lobby.
