Beautiful resort right on the water in Monterey

Posted 19-Oct-2017
Pros: Location, service, amenities
Cons: The only negative was a staff member complaining loudly to another employee in a public area that her part of the hotel was understaffed.
Location: Cannery Row shops and restaurants a short walk. Parks and fisherman's wharf nearby.
We diverted our planned vacation from Napa/Sonoma to this resort along the ocean in Monterey because of the tragic fires. We had not visited Monterey in about 25 years and were pleasantly surprised by this resort. All the amenities, service and comfort. Our room faced the bay with a beautiful panoramic view. Binoculars provided made watching the birds and sea life fun. My husband spent hours relaxing and watching the bay. It is an easy walk to Cannery Row shops and galleries but away from the hustle and noise. Staff were polite and accommodating. Ryan the bell hop made some great restaurant recommendations. We had an excellent dinner experience celebrating our anniversary at the restaurant Schooners. We will return to Monterey Plaza & Hotel.

Pros: Great location, wonderful food, beautiful accomodations
This is a beautiful hotel on the water... You could watch sea otters and other wildlife right from the balcony and common areas outside. The food at the restaurant was wonderful

Great view beautiful room

Posted 05-Oct-2017
Room overlooking Monterey Bay, spacious, one of the nicest hotel rooms I ever stayed in. Amenities in the hotel were great gym, hot tub and not the least was the overall experience I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an upscale experience in Monterey.

Wonderful spot to experience Monterey

Posted 04-Oct-2017
Anniversary trip for me and my husband. This was our final overnight on a PCH 1 road trip that started in LA and ended in San Francisco. Beautiful room with a beautiful view of the harbor. Just book the waterview now. We booked a street view then upgraded to harbor view and it cost more than if we just booked it originally through expedia but it's worth it. They even put binoculars in the room for you to use! Really, if you're going to Monterey, then you want the water view anyway. The hotel is a 5 min walkable distance to the other attractions on Cannery Row and fisherman's warf but away from the crowd. It's also just a 5 min walk to great restaurants on Lighthouse and is right along the walking/bike trail that continues to Pacific Grove. $29 nightly fee for valet parking (only parking option) and access to rooftop lounge/jacuzzi.

It wasn't' as Good As I Had Hoped

Posted 03-Oct-2017
Pros: The lobby was very nice
It was a beautiful hotel but the room was small and overlooked the street with a small view of the ocean. They mixed up our credit cards and charge the wrong card instead of the one they should have. Everyone was very friendly almost too friendly it wasn't heart felt at all. I don't think that we will come back to this hotel, there are other hotels in that area that looked just as nice and possibly will charge our correct credit card.

Outstanding. Ocean view upgrade well worth it.

This is a beautiful hotel where staff cannot do enough for you. The restaurant food was outstanding. The view from our large ocean view room was beautiful.
