The Clement is a luxury hotel, even a resort hotel. It's location spans a stretch of the Monterey Bay in California and offers blue sky, white sand and deep water vistas of the lovely Bay. It is a world class destination, which is why the maze to get from the hotel to the parking lot and finally to our room was a most unpleasant surprise. My mate is fussy about who gets to drive our car so valet parking was a non-starter. We drove around looking for the lot, then drove around seeing cars parked on top of each other on jacks and finally had to walk all over trying to find the right little pathway that would lead us to our part of the hotel. By the time we got into our room (an appropriately well appointed one) we were on the verge of totally worn out. Note to fellow travelers...don't be fussy about their valet parking, since the self park option is kind of a nightmare.
