Gorgeous hotel, excellent staff!
We spent the final night of our family vacation at this hotel and it was the perfect ending to a wonderful vacation! Monterey is such a beautiful place and Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa fits right into the beauty! We were treated so very well by all staff and workers that we came in contact with, from the front desk hostess at check-in, to the bellmen, to the valet staff, to the woman at the concierge desk. Everyone was so friendly, polite and made us feel as if we were special. They took an extra interest in our needs and went out of their way to see that we had a great stay! The hostess at check-in let me know there were a few rooms left with an ocean view if we wanted to upgrade, so we went for a balcony ocean/plaza view. Perfect! And well worth the splurge. The rooms are lushly decorated and we felt truly treated. The plaza is beautiful and has a wonderful fire pit to lounge around in the evening. The view is amazing! They also gave us a $20 gift certificate to the restaurant, as we were celebrating birthdays and we promptly used it to order our son a pizza from room service since he wasn't feeling well enough to go out. Very tasty! Also, the coffee shop was very good. We got pastries for the road the next morning. Yum! All I can say is Monterey Plaza Hotel is a must if you are staying in Monterey! We can only hope to be lucky enough to come back one day!
