Eight of us went to the Monterey Plaza Hotel for brunch on Mother's Day, and it was a thoroughly rewarding experience. The variety of great food was impressive -- everyone's choices seemed to be just right for whatever they had in mind. Delightfully surprising was the extremely high caliber of service, rather unusual for a brunch. It was competitively priced,...

Very nice room! Great food! Beautiful atmosphere! Slept with the balcony doors open to the sounds and smells of the ocean. Definitely a repeat for a special event! The hotel is located right in the heart of the Monterey coast, walking distance to the wharf as well as cannery row and the aquarium.

This is the fourth time we've stayed at this hotel. The first time was about 30 years ago when our son was a baby. The hotel is in the heart of Monterey's touristic area, but when you are in the room you don't hear anything. You can park your car and walk to the aquarium, take a stroll along the...

I have stayed here before and you will not be disappointed. Amazing views, walking distance to the wharf and cannery row. The hotel is clean and the service is top of the line. The rooms are clean and you can't beat the ocean views. You won't regret staying here. Although it is pricey it is worth it.

What a wonderful hotel- the ocean view rooms are right on the water and it is heavenly. The beds are so comfortable, and bedding is soft and luxurious. It is in a great location on cannery row, and you can walk everywhere from there. Another fun thing is they give you a certificate from the bike shop across the street...

This terrific property is located right on the water's edge on Monterey Bay. Directly below my room, the bay touched the shore on two sides., so I could open the sliding doors to my small balcony and hear the sounds of the bay and the waves lapping on the rocky shoreline...very soothing! My spacious room was impeccably maintained. It seemed...

The hotel is amazing! I would love to come stay again very soon. The view, dining, and spa tower were the most memorable. It was a great place to stay for a company retreat! I hope we do it again next year!
