PORTOLA HOTEL & SPA ANNOUNCES REFRESHED SPECIAL EVENT SPACE: THE CLUB ROOM

PORTOLA HOTEL & SPA ANNOUNCES REFRESHED SPECIAL EVENT SPACE: THE CLUB ROOM

Monterey, CA - January 10, 2023 - Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay is thrilled to announce the completion of The Club Room renovation. The dynamic event space offers a fireside entrance, wine-inspired private dining room, and an outdoor patio adjacent to Jacks fireside terrace. The Club Room refresh provides a sophisticated event space complimenting the hotel's continuous efforts to elevate and enhance offerings for meetings and events. 

The rugged coast of Point Pinos inspired The Club Room interior design concept created by RoseBernard Studio. "We drew inspiration from the Point Pinos Lighthouse and the rich sea-faring history of Monterey. Colors, textures, and lighting in The Club Room are reminiscent of an era of sailing and exploring the peninsula. The furnishings and art concept nuance the rich craftsmanship of shipbuilding and fishing along the water's edge," said Robert Polacek, Creative Director & Partner at RoseBernard Studio. 

Renovations to The Club Room's 4,500 square feet included new carpet, unique furnishings, and additional seating for 70+ guests with the removal of the previously existing built-in booths. "The uniqueness of The Club Room provides planners a warm ambiance from the polished woods, natural lighting and an open floor plan. An additional crowd pleaser is the seamless flow for guest interaction and convenient access to glowing outdoor fire pits on The Club Room Patio and Jacks Terrace overlooking the Monterey Harbor," said Terri D'Ayon Joyce, Director of Sales & Catering at Portola Hotel & Spa. 

The Club Room renovation follows the completion of the hotel's efforts to renovate 379 guest rooms and six meeting spaces throughout the property. "Meeting space renovations and property upgrades continue to contribute to overall efforts to offer a premier experience for our guests and conference attendees," said Janine Chicourrat, Managing Director at Portola Hotel & Spa. The Four Diamond hotel and the adjacent Monterey Conference Center offer 60,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space.
