Aargh Mateys – Portola Pirate Program

Designed for our youngest of hotel guests between the ages of 3 through 12, the Portola Pirates Program begins with a fun, self-guided treasure hunt around the hotel property. On your hunt learn about the history of Monterey, discover antique model ships, photographs of days gone by – all leading up to a treasure chest filled with goodies. Upon each return visit (or in this case voyage), your pirates can earn additional benefits and surprises. Learn more at here!

Walk this Way

Being located in the heart of downtown Monterey, allows our guests to walk or bike to a variety of fun destinations. Discover Dennis the Menace Park, visit the Monterey County Youth Museum (MY Museum) or Old Fisherman’s Wharf – each within walking distance to the Portola. In the evenings, stroll along the Wharf, walk along Downtown Monterey’s bustling Alvarado Street and make sure to treat yourself to ice cream at Revival Ice Cream, or Frozen Yogurt at MYO. In addition, there are art museums, historic gardens, City Hall, adobes, and so much more – all right outside our doors.
