As a lifetime platinum elite I expected more. Vacationed here for a few days with my family. I used points but still expected to be treated like an elite member after years of loyalty. Reserved 2 rooms, upon arrival only one was available. The rooms were NOT close as we requested. No room upgrades, no concierge, mediocre service. Small rooms... More

My family and I stayed here on our California road trip. I was given a room that was supposedly an upgraded bay view for which I paid dearly with points. We were next to the elevator and had to strain to see the water. I had to complain to the front desk to get a new room - which they... More

This is a standard Marriott-Rooms are functional, spacious and clean. Main benefit of this hotel is its location in downtown Monterey-walking distance to most main sites. Aquarium is a 10 minute walk but if you have small children, you might still want to drive. My only complaint about this hotel and it is not one that Marriott staff can do... More

I'm sorry to hear that the local fauna was loud for you. Indeed, it isn't something we can control. I hope we made your stay comfortable otherwise and that you'll return again. Thank you for staying with us and for your review. Best regards, ~ Rene B. More

I checked out of this hotel today and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Hans and Patrick checked me in around 1:30am and they were extremely kind and provided phenomenal customer service. They made me and my boyfriend feel right at home. When we left this afternoon Patrick M (a different Patrick) got our car. Not... More

First let me say, I like staying at the Marriott and have stayed at quite a few in the Bay Area. This location was fine and the amenities were the standard expected for Marriott. I am a rewards member but was disappointed to find out at check-in that I would not be receiving rewards points for this stay due to... More

We stayed here for a wedding weekend with many other couples in May, 2014. Check in was so easy, and the staff could not have been nicer. Our room was quite large and overlooked the street. The only issue that we had with our room was how loud it was. We could hear our neighbors above, below and on both... More

We spent 2 nights here in June 2014. We are silver elite guests. Upon arrival, our room was not yet ready, so Jing at reception arranged for a complimentary upgrade to a stellar room. She was most gracious and friendly. Our room was immaculate and well designed for comfort, with outstanding bay view. Jaime, who appears to do double duty... More

If your are travelling with kids - you will be in good company here. Standard rooms are a bit small - but functional. Swimming pool is perfect for kids - 4' deep the whole length - most kids can stand if they are not comfortable swimmer. If you are an elite member - the breakfast buffet is great and $6... More

Only stayed one night. Nice room. Very conveniently located to trolley, stores and restaurants. Very friendly staff. Room was ready by noon which was a plus. Valet parking for a fee. Always enjoy marriott hotels.
