We spent a night at the Monterey Plaza Inn on their 'Breakfast By The Bay' package and we plan to do it again! We arrived just after check-in time like everyone else. Valet parking looked chaotic, but despite having two lines of cars to park, the valets did a commendable job! One of the hotel managers even came out to offer help, but they had everything under control. Checking in took just minutes! We had one of the "Cannery Row" rooms. Usually, we would have kept the patio doors open because we enjoy the cool crisp Monterey air, but we couldn't, given the noise level from the Cannery Row traffic. It was incredibly noisy whenever a truck or motorcycle drove by. But if you keep the patio doors closed, it's OK. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Love the Gilchrist & Soames bath products and fluffy bath robes. In the morning, we used our vouchers for breakfast in the Duck Club Grill. What a great deal! We couldn't decide which was more enjoyable: the taste of our breakfast or the breathtaking view of Monterey Bay! In the afternoon, we decided to do some shopping in Carmel. The concierge was very helpful, providing us with a map and recommendations for lunch. Our biggest regret was not having the time to partake in the spa and whirlpools. The hotel is walking distance to the aquarium in one direction and Fishermen's Wharf in the other. The shops and restaurants along Cannery Row so close! Overall, our experience was excellent. Next time, we'll remember to pay a little more to get one of the quieter ocean view rooms.
