The hotel

Welcome to the Monterey Plaza, the only luxury resort on Monterey Bay. Boasting a Five Star Diamond status, the Monterey Plaza is sure to impress both business and leisure travellers alike.

Head back to the hotel and take full advantage of the full-service European health spa, enjoy a massage or take a dip in the whirlpool to soak away your aches and pains. Wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed and head out for a morning stroll, you are perfectly located on Cannery Row with access to many major attractions including Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The Monterey Plaza remains at the head the class for the Cannery Row area. The location is ideal, the rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the service is outstanding. I have visited half a dozen times and will be back again soon!

Beautiful room with a magnificent view to the sea. The service in the restaurant was terrible, I had to stand up to grab mi own silverware. Coffee was cold and the taste of food was average, nothing outstanding in the menu

Conveniently located property. We had a relaxing & peaceful stay here. We were treated as if we were staying in the penthouse instead of just their basic room. I only wish we would have picked this property for our whole stay - the other place we stayed at was the exact opposite. :( Thank you Monterey Plaza for redeeming our stay in Monterey!
