We stayed at The Monterey Bay Plaza Hotel & Spa for three nights. The location is amazing. Our room was just below the spa. (courtyard side) The room was large, with a balcony and very nice. The flowers in the courtyard were beautiful.
The staff right from check in to check out was top notch. We used the valet service and never had to wait. By the time we got to the front door our car was either there or just pulling in. The bell service was prompt and very helpful.
The common areas all had amazing views of the bay. It was a very relaxing to sit outside with a danish and eat breakfast.
The location was perfect. Cannery Row, the aquarium, and several very good restaurants are all within easy walking distance. We ate dinner one night in Schooners and that was also excellent.
Upon check in I inquired about a room upgrade. I was offered a water front corner suite for a very fair price. My mistake was I discussed it with my wife. I should have just taken it. While I liked our room I'm sure I would have loved the corner suite!
Great hotel and facility; whenever I get back to Monterey Bay I will be sure to stay here again.
