I have stayed here, twice, in the past few months.

Posted 08-Jun-2017
Pros: I like the cleanliness of the rooms. The touch lamps in the rooms are cool! Wine and cheese hour is a nice touch. On site restaurants a plus.
Cons: My Dad wanted to have a martini at 5pm. Bar not open yet. Schooners not open til 5:30. No one told us Schooner's bar was open, tho. Very disappointed
Location: Right on the water! Fun to watch sea otters, etc. Aquarium within walking distance. Cannery Row is touristy.
Great hotel. Good price. Wonderful location. Clean, nicely proportioned, and a cut above the rest.

Gorgeous hotel, excellent staff!

Posted 08-Jun-2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Location: Cannery Row was very cool at night to walk and shop. Driving down the coast is beautiful, too!
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!

Great Hotel

Posted 04-Jun-2017
Cons: There should be seperate steam baths, rather than one share by both sexes.
My wife and I stay at 4-5 star hotels and this is one of the best. The property is beautiful and well appointed. The staff were friendly and attentive. We look forward to staying there again.

Quick stay following family graduation. Needed ADA room and it was large and excellent. Facilities were great for handicapped visitors-everything at proper height. Huge king size bed!! Only sorry it was such a short visit.

Always a great experience

Posted 02-Jun-2017
Pros: View, restaurant
Cons: parking - would be great to have self-park
I have stayed here with my family two times and this continues to be the gem of Monterey. It's pricey, but it's worth it if you want to have a first class experience.

Beautiful hotel right on the water in a great location to downtown and Monterey Bay Acqurium. The staff was great, food was superb and spa amenities were fantastic. Highly recommend it for couples or families. I would stay here again next time I was in the area. Worth the price!
