“What a Wonderful Place”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Was just looking to spend 4-5 days out in Monterey and we needed a place to relax. We found it at the Monterey Plaza Hotel. Everything was just outstanding. The room overlooking the bay was wonderful, as was the Spa and all else. I can't say enough. Will be back again in December.

This was the perfect place for us to have our wedding . We picked it from a list of places to have it on the coast. From the get go it was top notch. Alexis set up everything for it to flow perfectly. Everybody at this hotel is very accommodating in anything you need. The Restuarants in the hotel is great.. And the views from our room were breath taking..

We spent two nights at the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa for my seventh birthday and had a wonderful time. The room was nice and the two meals we had at the restaurant's inside the hotel - dinner and breakfast were excellent. The hotel was pricey but my husband wanted it to be special so he splurge on the accommodations.

Great location but the room was very noisy in that we could hear are neighbors really well. The cleaners didn't come and clean the room until 4 pm which I think is not acceptable when you're paying around 320 a night. We stayed in room 1113 which was ok but still not great for that kind of money.
Would I stay there again? Probably not unless I can find a room for 250 or so.

My husband and I have stayed here on numerous occasions. We usually request a partial ocean view. What an amazing view! We sleep with the windows open, listening to the waves hit the shore!! Very relaxing, and romantic!! Rooms are spotless. Staff is very courteous! Would highly recommend this hotel!!

Have been coming to Monterey Plaza Hotel for over two decades. It continues to be "the" spot we most enjoy for our anniversary. The whole ambiance of location, hotel decor, and beautiful intimate rooms with stunning views is captivating as well as the courteous service and delicious dining. We would recommend to anyone looking to spend time in a lovely and relaxing location.

Room Tip: Get a ocean view room. It is worth it!

We have visited the hotel many times and have always left wanting to go back. The location cannot be beaten, the staff is extremely friendly and efficient and the rooms are very comfortable. The gym is great, nice views and it never seems too crowded. Monterey Plaza Hotel is our place of choice when visiting the Monterey area.
