We are excited to announce that the adjacent Monterey Conference Center is currently under a $60 million dollar renovation due to be completed in early 2017. In addition to the state of the art conference center renovation, the City of Monterey will be replacing the driveway that serves as an entrance to the Portola Hotel & Spa. Our guests experience throughout this renovation is very important to us and we have taken extra steps to ensure a smooth arrival process for each and every guest.  Between April 25, 2016 through early September 2016 the entrance to the Portola Hotel & Spa will be through the hotel parking garage located on the right hand side of Del Monte Avenue.  Our valet team will be there to greet and guide you throughout your stay.  If you have questions, please call the hotel directly at (888) 222-5851.  To learn more about the all of the exciting changes at the Monterey Conference Center, please visit www.montereyconferencecenter.com.
