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...

Would have liked to have some more electrical plugs available but everything else was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable with nice linens. My wife was the one that booked the stay and pointed out that she was able to get a good price. The hotel is within walking...

The hotel was beautiful. Very happy with the room. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They also had a great shuttle service that was able to take me anywhere I wanted in Monterey. Room service was good and very quick. Both times I ordered room service it took about 15-20 to receive the food. Would definitely stay there again.

Great room, great food, great views and wonderful staff! Pay extra and go with an ocean view room. If you wake up early enough, you'll see dolphins in the morning playing with the otters and other sea animals. There's no better spot in Monterey to watch the sunrise or sunset.

Okay, it's not an inexpensive stay. That being said, it's a great value for the area. The amenities and location make it a must for the Monterey area. The hotel has basically a complimentary taxi to take you anywhere in the area, all you have to do is schedule. Also, the stay came with free bike rentals to check out...

We completely enjoyed our stay. Staff was very welcoming. We didn't use the spa services, but you can't find a more beautiful gym area with a wonderful view. The rooms are quiet, yet so close to shops, live music and many deliscius places to eat.
