This is a true five star hotel. Room and general facilities are excellent. The only let-down is the hotel restaurant Schooners -- pretty good, but no up to the standards of the hotel itself.
We had an ocean view room with a balcony -- a bit pricey but worthwhile. We were able to watch wild otters, seals and other sea life. This was a great experience, especially for our two children. The hotel thoughtfully provide a pair of binoculars in the ocean front rooms -- very useful.
Parking in Monterey is difficult at best, but the hotel has its own parking garage about a block away, accessible only via valet parking -- a bit of a hassle, but they handle it very well.
