This is a sweet Victorian hotel with a fireplace in the lobby and antique furniture through out the hotel. It was clean. The staff is nice. In the morning there is a continental breakfast with fruit, yogurt, toast/ bagels, pastries, and cereals,which they tell you about when you check-in. One thing to note: This is a multifloor hotel with NO ELEVATOR. There are no guest rooms on the ground floor. If you have a lot of stuff, you or the bell staff have to bring it to your room. Be aware that you can hear the plumbing when your neighbour uses the shower. I could also hear people talking in the hallway and sitting area. It reminded me of visiting with family. If you are a light sleeper like to go to bed early, this may not be the place for you. There is no parking except for street parking and parking lots near by but the is a block or so away. Valet is not bad, but be aware there is about a 10 minute minimum wait for the valet, so call the desk a little before you need to take-off.
The hotel is located in the heart of the downtown area near the wharf so there are cafes and restaurants close to the hotel. This is not near the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
This is a charming hotel with a small staff. If you are coming to relax and can take your time this is a really nice place to be. This is not a business hotel, no frigerators in the room; a ceiling fan, not air conditioning; no room service or dinner downstairs. Service depends on who is on staff, it is a slower pace, but not a bad place to stay on the whole.
