Located just south of Monterey’s Cannery Row on the spectacular rocky shoreline of Pacific Grove, Seven Gables was built as a private mansion in 1886. Opening as a family-run inn in 1982, it has been expanded to encompass a total of seven buildings and has been designated by American Historic Inns as “one of the 10 most romantic inns in America.” 

Inns of Monterey area general manager Randy Venard will oversee all hotel operations with assistant manager Nancy Borino. The inn is well known for its outstanding personal service, spectacular ocean views, romantic accommodations and colorful gardens. 

In addition to the four boutique Inns of Monterey hotels, Portfolio Hotels & Resorts currently manages additional properties in California including the upscale Harvest Inn in St. Helena, the Orchard Hotel and Orchard Garden Hotel in San Francisco, and the Radisson Hotel and Doubletree Hotel at LAX. The company also has a strong presence in Chicago, with management of four hotels including the historic Ambassador East and legendary Pump Room, and the soon-to-open InterContinental Chicago O’Hare.
