Lived up to expectations
Reviewed 6 hours ago

We booked Monterey Plaza as part of our honeymoon trip down the California coast, as a treat (the rest of the time we were in motel type accommodation) - and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is in a great location by the sea, and stretches across both sides of the road. We were in the side away from the sea, but our view was lovely down Cannery Row and we could still see a bit of the sea. The room and bed were huge, with robes, a nice coffee machine, and a separate dressing table area with beauty light. The bar was nice right by the sea, with a very friendly barman who we chatted to for ages about England. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was lovely, again with friendly staff. Everyone was very helpful, even if you just bumped into them in a corridor. I would definitely stay in Monterey Plaza again - in fact I can't wait to go back!

I come here often and really enjoy this place.

I live locally, and The Plaza is a place I return to at least twice a month. Schooner's is one of the only places on the Monterey Peninsula to have a beautiful evening right overlooking the ocean. Jesse is a great bartender, and is always pleasure to see. Other outstanding people there include Chris at Schooner's and Carter who is bellman. Carter made our last visit there even better with great service and true attention to detail to myself and my friends. We will be back often.

Association Dinner with Banquet Services

Wow! Monterey Plaza has done it again and will continue to be our go-to spot for our annual Spring Association Dinner and Awards. Our cocktail reception exceeded our expectations with perfect weather, delightful staff and beautiful displays of cheese, wine, and high and low cocktail tables. Our dinner was outstanding in both food and service. Monterey Plaza staff never fails at going above and beyond! The best in the area, would recommend any association or corporate dinner/event at this property!
