I had the opportunity to stay at the Hyatt Regency for a business trip. As with a lot of so called "higher end" hotels, the lobby and hotel grounds are very nice, but the rooms are just like any other mediocre hotel. We requested a room with two beds as our daughter was with us, and I was shocked to discover that the beds were double, not queens. Talk about cheap, I've stayed at numerous other not so expensive hotels and had larger more comfortable beds when requesting two beds to a room. My husband who is 6'3" had his feet hanging of the end. Very disappointing, we also had requested a room with a balcony when making reservations, but was told upon check in that the only rooms with balconies were king, this wasn't shared when making reservations. I can't imagine the only rooms with balconies are kings, but maybe. This hotel also sits against the freeway, so if you are put in the outside row of rooms, be prepared for traffic noise. And although the Monterey airport is small, with minimal air traffic, they fly right over this hotel several times a day as well.
On another note, I read with interest that there was shuttle service from this hotel to Cannery Row, and was thrilled they offered it, so we could go downtown and try the restaurants, but what wasn't shared is that the shuttle only runs from like 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., so doesn't give you the time you'd need for an evening out. Great if your just going to the aquarium. The service at the hotel was commendable, but overall wasn't as nice as you'd expect for the price you pay staying at a Hyatt Regency.
