My daughter and I stayed at the Monterey Plaza this past weekend. The property is located right on the water overlooking Monterey Bay. Fantastic views, and great watching the otters and seals play in the ocean. The rooms are great, beds comfortable and nice decor. Schooners restarant has great food for all. My daughter had a blast. We ventured over to the Aquarium which is a short scenic walk along cannery row. This hotel is perfect for a Monterey get away.
