Say “Buenos dias” to Monterey at a Spanish-inspired boutique hotel off
the iconic Cali coast. Hotel Abrego’s stucco exterior, terra-cotta roof
tiles, tower-style chimneys and ornamental iron décor will transport you
to a Mediterranean climate, while the beauty of California surrounds
you. Courtyards, patios and private balconies that jet off the luxury
guestrooms are inviting oases, while the abundance of fresh air and
gathering spots are the perfect excuse to practice that laid-back Cali
living. You’re also steps away from the downtown shops, restaurants and
nightlife of Monterey.
At this TripAdvisor Certificate of
Excellence winner, the rustic dining room and al fresco patio of Bistro
Abrego offer extensive menus of local-meets-Spanish cuisine. Before you
set off to explore Monterey, try dishes like the breakfast burrito or
ranch eggs. You can also spend time soaking in the hot tub or bathing in
the swimming pool, and from there, go out on a golf trip, a
whale-watching tour or a ride on the wine trolley (yes, that’s a thing).
Your hardest decision? Which of the beautiful area beaches to visit
first. Buenos dias, indeed.
True luxury is a fireplace, a chaise lounge,
spa-style cotton robes and a 37-in. flat-panel cable LCD HDTV, around
which you can cozy up and watch your favorite shows. It’s also exactly
what you’ll find waiting for you in your Hotel Abrego guestroom. Both
the Premier King and the Premier Two Queen rooms feature stone
fireplaces, balconies or patios, Keurig coffee makers and spacious
bathrooms to keep you stylish and comfortable – just choose which
bedding configuration you’d prefer.
for breakfast and dinner, the popular Bistro Abrego features local fare
and spirits that are inspired by the Cali coast, highlighting fresh
ingredients, as well as a laid-back atmosphere that serves as the
perfect backdrop to casual cuisine. Cozy furnishings, a rustic fireplace
and an outdoor patio make this an intimate gathering place for visitors
and locals alike. With dishes like the breakfast burrito, ranch eggs or
prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and Abrego clam chowder, this eatery has
won rave reviews.
From waves to wines,
this part of Cali is delightfully laid-back. Monterey is a scenic drive
away from San Jose and San Francisco and an iconic stop along the Big
Sur coastline. Even closer are downtown Monterey’s restaurants, shops
and nightlife, just steps away; golfing, surfing, horseback riding and
outdoor adventures are also in abundance here. Other fun ideas include
visiting the beaches, fairgrounds and Fisherman’s Wharf, as well as
How to Get There
We visited hotel abrego while visiting monterey and the acquarium. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a motel like vibe. You can park your car in front of the room. There is a small pool and tub for the kids to play, what they liked. Was good for us for a short stay, would not have stayed here for extended period with the kids.
This place was clean, upgraded and the rooms were very nice. You could walk to local restaurants or eat at the hotel. My wife felt very safe and the room had a fireplace. My family was very impressed.
The Staff is friendly. Decor is dated. Food is fantastic. Beds comfy. Overall, a good stay but the hotel needs to be updated. Love having a coffee maker in the room, total plus. Our TV had a glitch. Shower was either scalding hot or freezing. Great location, easy to walk to wharf. Complimentary wine is a plus!
