We hadn't been to Monterey for years when a special event we were attending in nearby Carmel brought us back to this historic town for a bit of nostalgia. Fortunately, we chose to stay at InterContinental The Clement Monterey. What a perfect choice! From our greeting at the door, to the check-in process, to our beautifully appointed room with fireplace and partial ocean view, we were completely delighted. Even the dining room was a happy surprise. Both the service and cuisine were outstanding. Of course, the hotel's superior location next to the aquarium can be beat. We were so pleased with our stay, that we are planning to return with our our children and grandchildren. We can't imagine staying anywhere else!
