Excellent hotel in a great location. Staff very efficient and helpful. Dining at Schooners restaurant was a wonderful experience helped by a very knowledgeable waiter. Booking in was very quick although our room was a long trek.

We stayed w/ our 23 month old twins in the ocean room view for our 5yr anniversary. Everyone was very polite and accommodating. The food (breakfast/dinner) was much better than our last trip(year ago).

Loved the hot tub and the view. Great egg white omelet. My favorite place on earth! Loved the special treats for my birthday and the fact that they remembered and acknowledged on check in. Ryan was very nice who brought our luggage.

We have made several trips to the Monterey area and staying at the Monterey Plaza Hotel makes the whole trip worthwhile. We have enjoyed every stay and have chosen the Mpnterey Plaza over any of the other hotels.

What a pleasant experience. We loved everything about this place and would highly recommend it! We had spent the night before in Carmel and wish we had booked two nights here, instead. Perfect location, the rooms was quiet, comfortable and great view!

Enjoyed our brief stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful hotel, comfortable bed, super clean, top notch. Hotel staff was welcoming, friendly and professional. Great location and walking distance to Cannery Row shops and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I'd come back in a heart beat!

My family had the best trip ever b/c of this hotel. The staff were so kind and helpful. The turn down service was a special treat. Not only did they turn down our beds but they straightened up our room for the second time. Brought fresh towels and fluffed our pillows. Unbelievable. All the staff were extremely kind.

Our recent stay was in late April 2017. Still a little cool and small crowds. The hotel was in full swing preparing decor, paint and sidewalk for the summer crowds. We enjoyed the spa with two hot tubs, top floor with a view. The spa is amazing and service great! Our room was originally planned for a garden view, but...

This classically elegant hotel has sweeping views of the ocean. Its location on Cannery Row is ideal for walking to the local shops, restaurants and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The cleaning staff is fantastic. We left the room for a few short hours in the evening and came back to a clean room that night. Overall it was a great...
