Although this hotel is in the center of Cannery Row and bridges two blocks, it is a great hotel to stay in for a relaxing weekend. Usually, I don't care for the area it's in because it is touristy and has a plethora of t-shirt shops, but this hotel feels cloistered and private; it protects you from what is around it and creates a certain serenity that in more typical in a resort.
Don't get me wrong, the design is urban, maybe a little too much so, with not enough nod to the natural elements of the preserve on which it sits, but it has amazing windows that take advantage of the views of the bay without apology. The restaurant views are great and the food is quite good, actually.
I stayed in a King Room with a fireplace, without much view, but the room was very spacious and had a KILLER bathroom. Service was very good, with maid service being excellent. Room service was prompt and usually very good.
One final note, I left this hotel to attend a conference at the Hyatt Regency Monterey and found that place to be AWFUL. If, by some chance, you are considering a decision between the two, the Intercontinental is worth a real premium over the Hyatt, unless you are a golf nut.
I will certainly be back!
