Customer appreciation

Upon driving into hotel had great curve appeal. Once checking in the front counter was worse experience as to feeling uncomfortable with the people at the front desk. That kinda set the mood for the location. My wife and I enjoyed the room but the windows weren’t sound proof so sleep wasn’t that great. The valet was unorganized to get vehicle back in a timely manner. Over all I’ll be looking else for our next visit to Monterey.

great hotel for aquarium and whale watching trip.

Beautiful hotel, we had a room looking out over the bay with a balcony. Staff remembered names and used them when passing by, nice touch. Very clean beautifully appointed room and bathroom, water provided in personal fridge each day. Just small things but make a huge difference to the experience. We walked to the aquarium from the hotel and also to fishermans wharf. Restaurant was lovely and little coffee shop on site was excellent for breakfast and snacks. Car transfers available for free also useful for early trip for whale watching. Also invited to cheese and wine pre dinner apparently equivalent to afternoon tea in uk.

Monterey Plaza Hotel Retreat

My wife and I stayed at the property for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The property boasts beautiful views along with clean and spacious rooms. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again on my next visit!
