This was our first trip to Monterey. I have little patience for poor service or a room that is less than what I expect. This hotel was one of the best experiences my wife and I have ever had. Every aspect from valet service, to check in, to bell service, to room service was outstanding. We upgraded our room to...

This was our first time at Monterey and the online reviews is how we chose this property. What a find, we just loved it and are looking forward to staying here again in the future. The proximity to the aquarium and cannery row is the best. The staff was extremely professional and helpful and the property was outstanding.

I been staying at the Monterey Plaza and Spa for several years now. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. It is perfectly located near Cannery Row. A short walking distance will take you to the stores and restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean / well kept. Staff are friendly and helpful.

This hotel is gorgeous and has a delicious restaurant and amazing spa. I had the deep-tissue massage and it was just divine! Schooners is very versatile and tasty, and the sound of the waves under the patio is so relaxing. All in all a lovely hotel situated perfectly near Cannery Row.

This is a beautiful and very expensive hotel. Service was excellent as was the staff. Great location on Cannery Row. For a special birthday, we booked an expensive bay view room and planned on having the sounds of the waves at night. Instead, we had to listen to drunks dancing and screaming loudly at a party on the patio below...

I stayed one night while on business travel. The hotel is gorgeous, great service, and can't beat location. Be careful with the rooms though. They are beautiful and well kept but don't get one under the walk way. I could hear every one who walked over to their room...3209. It was loud.
