2.8 Poor
Pros:Not much
Cons:No customer service staff didn't care, elevators were slow and one was broken
5.4 Fair
Pros:The hotel is a short walk to the pier.
Cons:There is a lot of construction around the hotel, which makes things loud and busy. We had to wait until after 5 to check in ad still didn't get what we had asked for. There was a large convention there and basically the staff told us that they couldn't do anything to accommodate us. We ended up with a room on a VERY busy street and a toilet paper rack that kept falling on the ground. I was really looking forward to this hotel and was disappointed.
8.8 Very good
Pros:We love the Portillo but the construction is very distracting. We come about once a year and last year it was complete distraction as well. The room we got this trip was so noisy. We could hear everyone walking by yelling and screaming in the middle of the night. I wish we had staying in the main building. Everything else was oerfect! We love the portola... we will visit again even tho this wasn't the best of visits.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We paid 150 plus 20 to park. I am at peace with it. Recommended.
Cons:20 additional to park...cmon.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:Hotel was under construction. It was loud and not the least bit relaxing. We were woken up in the middle of the night by drunks cursing in the plaza area. The carpet in the room was stained. The power went out multiple times and I had one family member get stuck in the elevator. The staff was friendly but my experience overall was not pleasant.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Walking distance from everything.
Cons:Construction during our stay and a long walk from the elevators
6.8 Okay
Cons:Jackhammers outside my window at 8am, nonstop construction noise on hotel and conference center next door. Poor service in restaurant. Good location & friendly staff
2.0 Poor
Cons:Shards of glass on the room floor; freezing temperature when we walked into the room (heater was not on); once heater was turned on, had little to no effect, so we slept in bathrobes and ordered two extra blankets. Hotel is currently under major renovation, so the check-in feels like a motel and there is no entry lobby.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:my kids loved the pool and hot tub.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Close to everything downtown and you're right next to Fisherman's Wharf. Staff were professional and very accommodating. Spa services were great.
Cons:Construction was going on outside for their conference center so you have to walk around it a little bit but inside you couldn't hear it from where I was staying along Pacific Street.
