Staycations are the Best!
Calling all exhausted parents, worn out families, and couples in need of a romantic rendezvous in the 831; this post is for you!
Just because there’s no time for an actual vacation doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve a break. Monterey’s Portola Hotel and Spa is here to provide the perfect solution! Why not skip the hassle of booking flights and hotel rooms out of the area, and take a staycation instead. You don’t have to leave the country to get out of the house. All you need to achieve the relaxing staycation you so well deserve is a small bag and a quick drive to downtown Monterey.
Reserve a luxurious room and enjoy all of the lavish amenities that Portola has to offer. Spend your days in rejuvenation at Spa on the Plaza. Drop in for a facial or a heavenly massage, after, take a relaxing steam or kick back in the sauna. Perhaps taking a dip in the pool is more your style, cozy up in one of the private cabanas on the pool deck and read that book you’ve been meaning to finish for the past few months! After, stop by the concierge desk and play tourist for a day. Explore the town you live in through a fresh set of eyes and try out new attractions you’ve been too busy to investigate.
You don’t have to go far to experience the bliss of being pampered. Take a the day off from cooking and experience the Portola’s very own Jacks Restaurant & Lounge or Monterey’s first craft brewery, Peter B’s Brewpub. After dinner, spend your evening on a moonlight walk along Old Fisherman’s Wharf or stroll nearby beaches and listen to the peaceful sounds of the tide going in and out.
You may not have time to be a full-blown jetsetter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in a local weekend getaway. Make the Portola Hotel and Spa your next staycation destination.
