We decided last minute to stay at the Monterey Plaza on our trip down the California Coast. We were there for only one night so I decided to not pay the extra for ocean front. I can well imagine that the oceanfront rooms would have been breathtaking. We were pleasantly surprised with our view, very pleasant with a nice balcony.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Monterey Plaza Hotel for a long weekend and payed an extra $150/night to have a harbor view room. The view was lovely (be forewarned that you can't see the sunset from here), but our room was directly under the hot tubs/gym (which many of these rooms are) from 6am-9pm we heard hot tub... More

I spent a long weekend at this hotel and found everything to be just what I expected - the spa, the dining, the rooms and the staff. The hotel was in a great location, right off the interstate, but not too close either. It is up a private driveway and is very private. I would stay there again.

My wife and I attended a conference in May and found the hotel staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The ocean view from our room and the hotel restaurant were amazing. We saw a gray whale and her calf from our room overlooking the bay. The restaurant was so good we ate there several times and we rarely dine where we... More

We have stayed here at least five times and will certainly go back. There is no better choice in Monterey, particularly if you want to be near the water. The views from the ocean view rooms are outstanding. Everything about this property is relaxing.

Truly a class Hotel. This is a must stay hotel if you want the true experience of luxury and fine tuning. Monterey Plaza Hotel is a well oiled machine. From the moment that you step from your car until you leave on to your next destination it would be hard to imagine not having a truly wonderful experience. The staff... More

We had no idea where to stay so I checked out hotels online & read tons of Yelp reviews and decided to give them a try. So glad we did! From the moment we arrived we knew we chose well. Valet was courteous, front desk was friendly and helpful. **Only negative to me is that not all room locations are... More

Stayed here for two nights with a group of friends. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and came with a nice fuzzy long robe. Location was great right on the Bay and within walking distance of the aquarium and a beautiful walking trail along the Bay. Would stay here again.

My wife and I were on the west coast to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We were staying in the San Francisco area. We wanted to "experience" the Monterey area and knew it would be quite a drive to take it in in just one day so we decided to stay overnight in Monterey. Since it was our 25th anniversary, we...
