Today Show Coverage


As the editor of Central Coast Living, I try to bring a little slice of the Monterey Peninsula to our readers near and far. Sometimes it’s events and tips on travel to our area. Other times, it’s specials at the Portola Hotel & Spa or a new GREEN program they are initiating. While helping to promote this area is something I am passionate about, it’s seeing someone else helping to promote this area that gives me an even bigger thrill.

I see travel articles and blurbs about the Monterey Peninsula come across my desk every month, but it’s not often our area gets the kind of exposure we did on the Today Show last week. During a segment titled “Fun Family Getaways for Spring Break”  Our very own Portola Hotel & Spa’s Portola Pirates Program was featured and Today correspondent, Nilu Motamed from Travel + Leisure magazine had a number of great things to say not only about the Portola Pirates Package, but the hotel itself.

Our area is known the world over, but when a nationally televised program with the stature of the Today Show promotes a locally-based family-friendly property, it gives you a great sense of pride. So whether you are coming from across the country or across the street, check out the Portola Pirates Program.

Have some family fun and an old fashioned swashbuckling good time at the Portola Hotel & Spa!
