Overnight stay

Hotel is beautiful but much too big for me. I didn't like that we had to park in a parking grage, luggage all our luggage, then all the way on the 4th floor. It was really noisy. Our room faced a busy street. No tub for my lil one and no complimentary breakfast. And the pool was across the road! Not ideal. The room itself was nice, clean and comfy.

Nice location & Comfortable room

Pros: Location & comfort of the room
Cons: Tell people there is major construction happening or move them to room away from noise/construction.
Location: Main street across the street & Pier out the back door .
Good Location to Pier & town centre. Major construction happening next door which started 7:30am. Hotel wasn't full so not sure why we were put in a room overlooking the major construction(new hotel) less than 50 feet away. Room clean & comfortable.

Under construction.

Don't let the current remodel project fool you... this hotel offers good views, easy walks to shops, restaurants and the aquarium. Hotel staff provided excellent customer service.

Great hotel by Monterey's Fishermans Wharf

Despite construction of an expanded convention center, this is an excellent hotel. We enjoyed the location, adjacent to Custom House Plaza and Fishermans Wharf. We loved our room with king bed, balcony and view of the Bay and appreciated the sustainable policies and toiletries the hotel has adopted.

Nice Hotel but in the middle of a big renovation.

Pros: Staff
The only problem was the booking Travelocity you need to work on that!

The hotel has a great location close to historic downtown and within walking distance to Cannery Row. The hotel and amenities are top notch. Had a great time!
