Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay Seaside

Monterey, California Coast

The hotel

It's nice to be able to relax in the spacious comfort of your two-room suite, but the complimentary hot breakfast buffet and made-to-order omelette station will help get you out and set up for the day. At the Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay Seaside, you are a couple of blocks from the beach and just two miles north of Downtown Monterey. There are lots of attractions and activities along the Bay too, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium or Steinbeck Museum, or head out in the car for 20 minutes or so for a bit of hiking, winery action or spa treats. The hotel’s 2-hour evening reception with complimentary cocktails and snacks is a great way to kick-off your evening. The Silver Tide Bar & Grill is in the atrium too, so why not drop in afterwards for some local California cuisine?

This Embassy Suites at Seaside is a luxury hotel located near Monterey Bay. Our entire family enjoyed visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, beaches and especially the free Dennis the Menace Park, where the kids had a great time on the rock climbing walls, suspension wooden bridge, various slides, swings and the unique mechanical merry go round. There was also a skate park but the kids did not bring their skate boards, helmets, elbow and knee pads. The free evening reception at the Embassy Suites was excellent with good healthy items for the kids. After eating the made to order omlet breakfast at the hotel, the morning fog lifted and the sun appeared, we enjoyed a perfect family picnic at the park. Read less

We were able to relax after a hard day of sightseeing and everything was quiet and well ordered. The breakfast was nice but better than that were the staff's helpfulness and constant cleaning of the area. That you do no find everywhere.

Last minute booking on a Labor Day weekend. Excellent Hotel. Very clean. Comfortable beds and even the sofa bed was good. The lobby has these gigantic TV monitors that resembles the Monterey Bay aquarium. The location is great. Parking is self parking and is $14 per night. We brought our dog for his first trip and there is an area outside for the dogs to relieve themselves. I really liked that the hotel staff texted me after we got into our room to see if everything was in order and complete. They also texted me the day of checkout. I even used the text to followup on a forgotten item after we got home. The staff responded immediately. Their customer service is excellent. Loved the breakfast. Very wide variety to choose from. Ample seating in front and in the back dining areas. They bus the tables quickly and clean them for you. There is even a small microwave in the area. The omlete line was long but moved okay. I think guests should tip the chefs. I can't believe no one in front and the person behind me dropped a dollar or two in the tip jar. My omelete was delicious and so was the Blueberry pancake. Overall, this Embassy Suites lived up to the Hilton high level of customer service. I highly recommend this Monterey Bay location. This visit was a milestone for me as I became a Hilton Diamond member! Read less
