“Lovely rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We loved this hotel (we visited 6 during our stay in USA). This has the brightest rooms with great amenities.Hotel reception and concierge are all excellent and we got aquarium tickets for 2 days which meant we could split it up (tickets cost the same as 1 day pass). They booked our whale watching trip which was also great too.

We stayed here for one night in Sept 2012, fabulous location and fabulous hotel in Monterey. This hotel was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The rooms were very spacious and immaculate, bathroom was huge. The valet services were also excellent.
The location of the hotel was also excellent, close by to the Aquarium, shops, restaurants. I would recommend speaking to the concierge to book a restaurant, as the town is small, it's worth making a booking if you have somewhere specific you would like to go.
We too a walk down towards the marina as this is where the sea lions, otters and other wildlife hang out.
Lovely atmosphere and a very relaxing town, wish we had stayed another night!!

The hotel was beautiful and in a great location of Monterey. We hire a car in town and drove down the 17-Mile drive - which was gorgeous.
Our room was a great size - as was the bathroom - very comfortable.
Unfortunetly I broke my toe while there but the hotel was great they lent us a wheelchair for the whole of our stay - which we could take out of the hotel as well. In general the staff were always friendly and helpful.
The hotel is right next to the aquarium too.
We went here as part of our honeymoon.

My husband started staying here for work when he had a project in nearby Salinas. I accompanied him several times and we started coming down from SF for weekend getaways because we both loved the hotel! He stayed here enough nights to become an IC Royal Ambassador (which has great perks including complimentary mini bar).

The hotel is one of the newest properties in Monterey/Carmel area. The interior is modern and has a clean/fresh look. We've stayed in different room categories. The suites have gas fireplaces, small balconies with magnificant views of the bay, and huge marble bathrooms. They place a stuffed sea otter on the beds as a decoration. If one of the sea otters mysteriously ends up in your suitcase, they will charge you for the adoption fee!

The views from the rooms are breathtaking.

Downstairs is the C restaurant which has a delicious dinner menu, wine selection, and a beautiful view of the bay. The croissant french toast on the breakfast menu is amazing. There are firepits and chairs outside to just sit and enjoy the view or look for sea otters swimming in the ocean.

The hotel is located on Cannery Row which can become crowded during peak time. You can hear the foot traffic if you get a room facing the street. The aquarium is within walking distance and during busy season, there is a free trolley that can take you to the wharf.

The staff is super friendly and they remember their returning guests.

Dear FiFi, I am glad you mentioned that we are one of the newer hotels in the area. We are also one of the few with refrigerated air conditioning for the occasional warm day on the bay. Thank you for being a member of our IHG Rewards Club, and I hope you will be earning many more points with us!

By all means Monterey isn't a big town but it has a lovely vibe and the hotel is excellent. The are a few things to do like the aquarium and whale watching. Only stayed one night on our way up to San Francisco but it was a lovely stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had 2 junior suite which were gorgeous with sea views, although we had a look inside a standard room when the doors were open for cleaning and they looked lovely too. I would definitely recommend a room with a sea vie as that's what the town is all about really, the location.

Room Tip: Go for Sea view, some only have partial so make sure to be specific when booking.

My husband booked this as he wanted to be right in the heart of the Bay. He was hoping we would get an ocean view, but we ended up on the other side of the street. The hotel rooms were nice. Nothing spectacular, but a nice clean room with a comfortable bed. The location is the best part of this hotel. It was nice to be able to mill around and not have to get the car to do things. The valet service was excellent and the service at the front desk was top notch. I would definitely stay here again and having the great location made our quick weekend trip even better. What a great area!

Dear txtook, It is nice to hear that you found our hotel conveniently located, as there is much to see and do within walking distance. Even Fisherman’s Wharf is an easy ten-minute walk along the vehicle-free recreational trailway. We’re looking forward to seeing you again soon.

On arrival our car was quickly valet parked and we were shown to our rooms with lovely views of the bay and cannery row. The hotel is right in the thick of things but still remains a peaceful haven. The staff are courteous and efficient. The rooms we had on the fourth floor were spacious but the air con noise was a little troubling as it stemmed to make the head board rumble. The restaurant is worth a visit . The views of the bay from the restaurant and terraces are fantastic. The waiter quickly brought us a pair of binoculars when some whales were seen in the harbour and the fire pits are lovely and warming. The gym is well equipped but the pool is a lap pool only.if you can, run along the seaside trail. The coast has plenty of seals to keep you amused whilst running.

Room Tip: Get a sea view. It's worth it,
