Great location and they are remodeling so your experience is going to be even better.

Small place window outlooking was not great. wifi did not work, and heater did not work until we called the service guy to fix it.

Liked the proximity to everything and the dog friendly establishments. Only thing that could be better is if there was a “green patch” or designated dog area on the hotel grounds or nearby

Beautiful room and service. Ease of check-in, valet service

Beautiful lobby—nice environment to hang out or have dinner. The proximity to Fisherman’s Wharf and Historic Downtown is great for access to the Bay as well as good food. The staff were very friendly.

Beautiful property, excellent location! Easy walk to nearby attractions. The service was amazing.

Conference hotel Personable, beautiful decor, food

Unfortunate......very noisy..... unable to rest due to the noise all night

I love that it is very dog friendly, next to the pier; only 2-5 minutes walk. Staff were friendly and efficient.

We loved everything about the Portola. Every employee was so nice. The spa was amazing and the location is perfect!

Convenient to warf. Clean and personable staff. Bed very comfortable

I like the exercise and spa facilities and proximity to fisherman‘s wharf and downtown. I did not like having to pay $20 a night for parking.

First time at the Portola. We enjoyed the dining, the lounge and the spa for sure! Very comfortable room and experience.
