Monterey is about 100 miles south of San Francisco International Airport (SFO), which has non-stop flights from a wide range of domestic and international airports. You can also fly into Oakland (OAK) and San Jose (SJC); SJC is about 30 miles closer to Monterey than SFO. Monterey has its own airport as well (MRY), just a few miles from the hotel, but flights to MRY tend to be expensive, and MRY only has direct service to a few airports in the western United States.
You have several options for getting from the more distant airports to Monterey. Monterey Shuttle provides service to/from SFO ($45) and SJC ($35), with a pickup / dropoff point a block and a half from the Portola Hotel. We strongly recommend booking well in advance, since Monterey is sufficiently distant that you want to be sure you have a seat. You may also choose to rent a car and drive to Monterey; this is a particularly good option if you're going to spend an extra day or two in Monterey, which we highly recommend if you've never been there.
If you're flying into Monterey itself, you can simply take a cab or bus to the hotel; it's only 4 miles (about a 10 minute ride) from MRY to the hotel.
We've set up a Google Group for those interested in sharing hotel rooms. You'll have to join the Google Group to see the mailings.
We've also set up a Google Docs spreadsheet for ride sharing. This is a public spreadsheet—no need to sign up to edit it.
