  • Portola Hotel & Spa Launches First Hotel Loyalty Program for Kids

    Monterey, CA, March 28, 2011 -
    Hotel loyalty programs are nothing new, but it’s not often that you will find a hotel rewards program for kids. Portola Hotel and Spa is leading the way by creating the first hotel loyalty program for children.
    Portola Pirates is a complimentary program providing kids a fun and educational experience. Children are greeted upon check-in with a treasure chest that is complete with pirate-inspired toys and a scavenger hunt map to a hidden treasure. Portola Pirates was created to introduce children to Monterey’s historically-rich culture and the program is inspired by Gaspar de Portola, the late 1700s Spanish explorer after which the hotel’s surrounding area was named.

    The Portola Pirates loyalty program offers additional rewards for return child guests. After children experience the Portola Pirates scavenger hunt during their first visit, families will receive complimentary tickets for two children to visit My Museum, a hands-on museum offering a variety of exhibits and activities for young children, and tickets to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, to be used on their second stay. During a third visit, families receive a complimentary Surrey Bike for the family to explore the Monterey Bay. On a fourth visit, Portola Pirate sleeping bags are provided at check-in for children to use throughout their stay and bring home. After a fifth visit, children win a complimentary upgrade to a suite for a kids sleepover experience, to include kids snack buffet in the room, Wii game and other fun amenities.

    “We are very excited to introduce Portola Pirates to our guests,” said Janine Chicourrat, general manager of Portola Hotel & Spa. “Our goal with this program is not only to enlighten children visiting with parents from out of town about Monterey’s rich, cultural history, but local children from the Monterey area as well. We believe this program also serves as a great option for birthday parties and educational field trips for local kids, parents, schools, and organizations.”

    Hotel restaurants, Jacks Restaurant and Lounge and Peter B’s, offer an exciting Portola Pirates Kid’s Menu with pirate-inspired items such as MacAAAARRRoni and Cheese, Captain Jack’s Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Black Beard Pasta and Portola Barnacle Burger. All items are served with a choice of Scallywag Fries or a Jolly Roger Fruit Cup and a Landlubber Root Beer Float or Matey Scoop of Ice Cream. Each item on the Portola Pirates menu costs $4.99 and includes a beverage choice of lemonade, milk, juice, or soda. Kids five and under eat free.

    Portola Pirates is offered year-round and open to children 12 and under. For local parents, schools and educational organizations interested in the Portola Pirates children’s program for birthday parties, educational groups, or field trips, please call (831) 649-4511.
