My husband and I travel for pleasure a lot and stay in upscale / 5-star hotels.
This property is OLD, and Hyatt has tried to "polish" it up.
The hotel is comprised of many 3 story buildings of hotel rooms - very much like a MOTEL.
You drive and park in front of your building.
The hotel is located right on the Old Del Monte Golf Course, so it's very convenient if you plan to play golf there.
We were lucky enough to get one of the FEW balcony rooms. I saw the standard room w/out balcony, and there would have been no way I could have stayed in the room.
The balcony was probably only 5' x 4', at most, but it did provide a nice place to sit and watch the golfers putt and tee off.
The rooms have been cheaply modernized.
The bed linens slipped off the mattress (and I don't move around when I sleep), so when I woke up the sheet was un-tucked and the mattress was peeking through. Old and small pillows. Not a comfortable bed. Had three restless nights.
The bathroom - argh... a tub/shower with a SHOWER CURTAIN (yuck - gross).
They only provide BAR SOAP - no shower gel.
Get with the program Hyatt Regency. Glass showers and shower gel are a must.
There are not many new / modern hotels in Monterey, so if you are staying on points, then go for it.
We did a combo of points / pay. I paid $399 for one night and $199 for the other (Labor Day weekdend). $399 was a JOKE.
Next time I'm in the area, I would probably just stay at Pacific Grove Inn or splurge for The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
