We spent one night at the Spindrift while on our way down the coast. It is located in the heart of Monterey's "Cannery Row" district, which although a bit touristy, was beautiful. The hotel staff was great - helping us with our bags, making valet parking effortless, and making us feel welcome. We had a top-floor corner room which was lovely.
We esepcially liked the upholstered chairs in front of the fireplace (which we used because with the windows open, it got quite cool even in August). The bed was unbelieveably comfortable. The early evening wine hour was a nice touch and the local wine they poured (rather generously I might add) was delicious.
Overall, a very comfortable stay for what I thought was a great value with our AAA rate.
Also, we had dinner at the Sardine Factory which was lovely. Upscale dining in a beautiful setting. Great food, wine list, and service.
