We are a family on a road trip from Canada and this hotel has been the nicest one we have stayed at so far - by a long way! The location is amazing, the room is spacious and the bathroom luxury. We slept with the balcony door open to listen to the sound of the waves crashing and sea lions barking in the distance. My husband and I also used the spa and the setting of the deck with jacuzzis is one of the most gorgeous you'll ever see. I wish we were staying here for more than one night!

Room Tip: Get an ocean facing room if you can afford it

We had a wonderful time here recently and I could not rave enough on the customer service that the wait service and the lost and found departments gave us. The waiters at Schooner's restaurant specifically Gardine and Edgar were very accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu and did not disappoint with their suggestions. The food was very tasty and wines amazing! Angela at the lost and found department also took care of our needs when we came home as we left some items in our room. Overall, the hotel is at the perfect location, the views are amazing and we can't wait to go back. Thanks!

This is the best hotel in Monterey. The service is impeccable, the employees are friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. The property is beautifully maintained. The restaurant, Schooners was fabulous. We had a window table as usual, they try to accommodate everyone's wishes. We visit here frequently & would not stay any other place.

We showed up not knowing what to do or expect and sure enough a young man at the valet named Sean really helped us out. Not only once but twice. As big as this place was, Sean remembered us and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. My wife and I recommend this hotel to anyone! Thank you all

We were pleasantly surprised, the hotel was absolutely beautiful, the setting was breath taking and the location was excellent. We knew we were in for a wonderful anniversary weekend when we pulled in and were met by friendly, happy staff who helped us with our luggage and directed us inside to the lobby. The best customer service continued inside with the wonderful, very helpful and friendly front desk staff who knew us by name. The pampering continued when we arrived to our gorgeous spacious room with a wonderful ocean view and a balcony, we enjoyed sitting and sipping wine and listening to the waves. We ate at Schooner's and again had wonderful, helpful staff, who took such good care of us. We've gone to Monterey many times before, but never have we ever experienced such a first class, wonderful hotel, we can't wait to go back. We highly recommend staying at this hotel and experience the unexpalined pleasure of first class perfect treatment.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony over looking Cannery Row with a ocean view, we loved it and did not hear any...

Great location, nicely appointed spacious rooms, comfy beds, excellent staff. We especially enjoyed seaside cocktails by the fire pit, with music wafting out from the piano bar, Be sure to splurge for an ocean view room to avoid Cannery Row noise.
