This hotel is without a doubt in the best possible location of Monterey, however that's where the advantages end.
The room is average in terms of size for this area, however the TV is painfully small and most of the channels had a great deal of fuzziness or pixilation to the point of some cable channels simply not working for minutes on end.
There is no mini-fridge so I figured I would walk down to ice/vending area and get a bottle of water, and fill my ice bucket. After a long, long walk to the area I discovered the vending machines were out of water.
I wanted to order room service, so I opened up the standard issue Marriott binder and opened it up to services, scrolled to "room service" and it said "see separate room service tab"... Well, there was no room service tab so my room was completely without a menu to order room service.
I am a platinum Marriott member, and frequent Monterey. It is my suggestion that you consider The Portolo Hotel next door, I have stayed there and find it to be vastly superior to the Marriott, and even though I cannot collect any rewards points there, it will be where I stay from now on.
