Stayed here in the past. Happy to see that the quality of the hotel had not diminished. Best part is walking out in the morning and seeing the bay "under our feet". The patios jut right out onto the water...it is an integral part of the experience. My room was HUGE. Warning: The restaurant was not very good: Service poor...

Astounding service, sumptuous rooms, incredible dining, sensitive staff, super spa, this big beauty of a hotel is all you want. It's expensive but it stands up to the prices by serving their guests in a unique and respectful way. Beautiful woodwork inside, the lobby is huge and outstandingly attractive, with plush carpets, individual game tables, displays and nooks to discover....

We are local but have stayed at this hotel several times. Spent the weekend again for my husbands work meeting and greatly enjoyed our stay. BEAUTIFUL ocean view room, comfy bed. Service throughout the hotel is great! Also had drinks one night and breakfast one morning at Schooners Coastal Kitchen and Bar and both were great. Highly recommend the Monterey...

Exceptionally spacious rooms. Well appointed, if a bit dated. Furnishings are very traditional and a bit old school. Very clean, comfortable beds. Terrific location, lovely view and convenient walking distance to dining options and aquarium. Hot tubs on roof top spa are clean and offer a terrific vantage point over water. Great steam room as well. Well worth a stay.

Stayed here just for one night but the moment you walk into the hotel you get the feeling you're walking into a kind of old world luxury and that is enhanced by the extremely friendly reception staff. The hotel is z bit of a maze so if you struggle for mobility make sure you ask for a room near the...

We decided to spend the New Year weekend in Monterey and we weren't alone. The whole town was busy even though the weather wasn't great. In my experience, a business that traditionally has good customer service can fall short of that goal when things get hectic or busy, but not this Hotel. They managed a huge influx of guests with...

We booked two rooms for our family of 5. One was a partial harbour view king and the other was a standard room with two queens. From the online advance checkin email, valet car parking, reception and porters - all staff without exception were outstanding. The hotel itself is welcoming and the rooms are very comfortable. This property is on...

We had a terrific room and when you opened the curtains in the morning we were 15 metres from the ocean and flinging open the windows you can smell the sea as you listen to the sea lions and watch the birds and after you can go to the spa to enjoy the roof top jacuzzi
