We were in town visiting our friends who recently moved to Monterey. This hotel was clean, well decorated, comfortable, had a great evening reception, and lovely staff. The small gift shop had items we wanted/needed. Lotion and chapstick that I had forgot and souvenirs for the kids. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The restaurant on site was "open seating" so many people enjoying the managers reception took the seats so we were scrunched at a table with random people. The service was slow and forgetful so we left and went across the parking lot to Chili's. We plan to visit our friends often while they are stationed in Monterey and definitely plan to stay there again. Would recommend for families and couples alike. Read less

How is it possible that you can have such a fantastic experience with one Hotel in a chain and then have a disappointing experience less than a week later in another. In this case the Hilton Embassy Suites failed to deliver on a number of counts and it all began at the check in. We had booked a mini suite which meant the kid would be sleeping on a pull out sofa bed. The sheets looked as though they had been slept in and no pillows or duvet. Not enough towels either. The reception was apologetic but the response and the offer of some blankets was disappointing - no extra towels provided either. Don’t get me on the subject of the Wi-fi as the answer to my wife re the Hilton Honors password was no membership number no password. The hotel itself was modern and pleasant but my overall impression was tainted at the outset. Wouldn’t go back! Read less

In house Starbucks charges a service fee, then hotel tax, then taxes at 9.25% (not 8.75%). We added a tip but the system added 17% to the charge on my card with no notice to me. I complained and it fell off.
