Want to treat yourself to perfect, detailed luxury? Special occasion? Here you go.
-when did they do turn-down service? who knows. WHO CARES?
-when did they leave honeymoon gifties in our room and on our bed? who knows. WHO CARES?
-hot tub overlooking Monterey Bay with a perfect wind guard and an outdoor fireplace.
-I didn't try it, but my husband says the sauna was amazing.
-ice cream at midnight? Just call room service.
-waves crashing under, literally under, your room? Yes. Leave the door open overnight.
-binoculars perfectly placed so that you have them on hand the moment, the very moment, you think you might have seen a seal? Yes, yes, and more yes.
-room service for breakfast because, while Cannery Row is delightful, you won't want to leave the room until you have to? Yes, of course.
-noon checkout, because they know 11:00 a.m. is total BS? Yep.
-buying your tickets to the aquarium there so you don't have to wait in a long line? Wise.
-leaving your car there while you explore cannery row (valet is paid through 4)? Genius.
Enjoy, enjoy, breathe the sea air and enjoy.
I may never be able to afford to come back here, but it was the perfect once-in-a-lifetime trip. Amazing, and worth every penny.
