“WOuld come back again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2009

This was one of the many hotels we stayed in on our way to Monterey from LA and by far was one of the best. Vey lovely and nice and close to Canney Row and seemed like it was the best one in that area.

I was with my husband and another couple. Rooms are very nice. We only ate breakfast at the hotel and that was very good. Service all around was very good. My only complaint would be that the housekeeping was in our room when we would return from breakfast and we ate breakfast around 8-8:30am.
We would definetly stay here again if we were to be in Monterey.

This hotel reminded me of staying in Hawaii in the beautiful Hilton in Waikiki. The hotel was very nice and clean, and the staff was the best. They upgraded us to a room that had a partial ocean view which was like being right on the beach, yet with a view of cannery row. The spa has a jacuzzi right above the water and working out you are facing the ocean. I would workout everyday if I had that view. The duck club was delicious. I will definitely return.

My husband and I stayed here for the Jazz Festival and is birthday and we had a great time. The hotel could really use their own shuttle for the festival, but they were able to hook us up with a service that did the trick for us. The rooms are not luxurious or huge, but they are a good size and of course the ocean view could not be any lovelier. I'm glad I didn't fork over extra money for the balcony as they looked pretty small. The bed was fantastic. Perfect in ever way and listening to the waves at night made for a nice sleep. The location on Cannery Row is okay, but for the Jazz Festival I think I would prefer to stay closer to the fairgrounds next time, plus the touristy feel of the area is a bit annoying. There's better restaurants downtown and in Carmel if that's what you're into. The spa at the hotel is really nice. It's not cheap, but spas aren't. We had a couple's massage that was excellent. THere is some nice biking and kayaking around the hotel, but we didn't have time on this trip. Maybe next time.

Upon arrival, we were upgraded to water front, beautiful room because of anniversary. . Champagne & Choc. Strawberries on the house. Good service by Dillon (valet) and Noel (Duck Club Dining). Treated royally. Great service, views, room! Love to return some day! Best hotel location in Monterey Bay. Good taxi service to Jazz Festival. Nice walk to Monterey Aquarium. Our son and daughter-in-law arrived also to celebrate their 35th anniversary. Can't say enough. Thank you for making this special occasion even more special. Our son recommended it.
