Four Diamond LEED Certified and 50,000 sq ft of Meeting Space - Monterey, CA


Portola Hotel & Spa

First thing you notice about this 379-room Four Diamond LEED certified hotel… it’s connected to the new Conference Center. So connected, it seems to be the same thing It’s not, but it is definitely has the Location thing going for it. By itself, it offers 50,000 square feet of meeting space, and groups routinely use both the Conference Center and the hotel. (Historical Note… I had a group that used both facilities in 1980. Pretty funny).

But that is far from all… it’s right next to a state historic park (let’s add 60k square feet of outdoor space), and about a two-minute walk from the Wharf and the Beach. There is also a Brewery on property, bocce ball courts, and get this… a Salvador Dali museum right next door.

There are a billion other things. Check it out at

I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.
