Not precisely in downtown but within close proximity to everywhere you need to go when visiting Monterey. Situated at a corner lot, this is a large hotel with a nice lobby entrance and restaurant plus spa services available on the premises. Plenty of parking available along the outdoor gated swimming pool. I forego the breakfast they served to go across the street to Dennys for take away which was very convenient. At night, the restaurant opens as a bar with outdoor seating by the firepit. A small gift shop, business center & daily rejuvenating health drink with fruits served behind the lobby complimentary. The room is tidy with a comfortable bed but no fridge. The bathroom is on the smaller scale with outdated tiled shower. We left our car at the hotel & took a short walk to the bus stop a few blocks away where you can catch a ride on the free trolly that picks up/drop off every 15 minutes & takes you to the scenic locations such as fisherman's wharf, cannery row & aquarium. For the non-tourists, the Del Monte Center is the largest mall in the area just a brief drive on Munrus Ave. Further driving distance to Pebble Beach & Carmel but all within easy reach maybe 10-15 min away.
