Monterey Plaza

Monterey, California Coast

The hotel

If you like the idea of gazing over the Pacific Ocean, perhaps sipping your morning latte or feasting upon delicious seafood, you’ll be impressed by the Monterey Plaza Hotel. Set along Monterey Bay, it's a real treat to come back to after a day out and about. Pamper yourself at the rooftop spa — a massage or dip in the whirlpool will help to soak away any niggles. If you’re travelling with the family, you’ll especially like chilling out at The Terrace, a cosy sundeck with comfy loungers and hot tubs. Or, as you’re on Cannery Row, maybe you'll fancy heading out for a stroll. There are plenty of attractions nearby, including Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the golfers amongst you will relish the nearby championship courses.

I have to say the first day being there felt like we had been there for days. We were all so relaxed and enjoyed the location plus the views. This was our first time staying at this hotel and it won't be our last.

The most beautiful and on the water, very friendly people, even in the middle of a pandemic. The hotel is in the middle of town , very close to everything , easy valet parking , for $32.00 a night, a surprise charge.
