After a hectic holiday season I was in desparate need to simply get away and recharge. Having lived in Monterey for four years prior to coming to the San Francisco Bay Area, I have always loved Monterey. So after clocking out from work on December 24 I got in my car and drove the 3 hours from Oakland to Monterey and now I wish I had stayed longer. The staff at the Monterey Plaza Hotel have always been the best and they did not disappoint. From check-in to obtaining a reservation at their excellent restaurant Schooners all the way until check out, I never observed anything but the best from the staff. The room was comfortable, the Monterey area never disappoints and my short stay accomplished the goal of getting me back to an even footing so that I could return to work and face the grind once again. Now I find myself wanting desparately to get back there but will have to content myself, at least for now, remembering this short but very relaxing trip. Thank you to all the staff and to Lorinda from Schooners. Your advice about the Mahi Mahi was spot on.
