Had a wonderful stay. Location great. Hotel greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Water View Doesn't Mean Montery Bay"
We booked a water view room expecting to look out into Monterey Bay. Instead our room looked back at the hotel across a little bit of water and onto the bar and event decks. Well yes we did see water, but not what we wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel with lovely views."
We enjoyed our visit to the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa very much. It was a lovely and relaxing place to spend time. The staff is terrific and the gym and spa are great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Water Front Hotel"
We had a room with an ocean view and enjoyed looking out the window, using the binoculars provided by the hotel, to watch the playful otters and cormorants. A total waterfront experience! The restaurant is excellent! Lots of variety in menu options! A friendly and attentive wait staff! The staff at the hotel is one of it's best assets! Concierge and […] bell staff, as well as the front desk and housekeeping staff are friendly and helpful! They get an A+! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Awesome view of the ocean.."
Very beautiful, but not beach weather! Normal high around 60-65...bring layers. Very relaxing setting with shops within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and amazing staff"
Really great hotel in a perfect location. The service was very great and everyone was very friendly. After checkout we were going to visit the aquarium and thought we would have to drive down the road and find parking. The Valet suggested we keep the car at the hotel and walk the couple blocks...which was much easier and more fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly and gave us good ideas of what to do while we were there.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great room, amenities were perfect, location is superb, food at bar outside overlooking the bay was very good. No noise, bed was fantastic!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful and great location."
Beautiful hotel located three blocks from Cannery Row. We enjoyed our stay in a non oceanview room. It looked right out to the entrance of Cannery Row. The valet parking is included in the $25 resort fee charged, and was a great item. Would definetly book again if we return. Stayed 4 nights and that was plenty of time to see Monterey, Carmel and Big […] Sur. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"You'll Never Want to Leave..."
This rates as one of the most enjoyable hotels we have ever stayed at. The hotel is luxurious, Cannery Row is enchanting. There was never any want, need, desire, or necessity that was not immediately attended to by the very friendly and helpful staff, who went out of their way to be friendly and make us very comfortable. I can honestly say that both […] myself and my wife were very sorry to have to leave and go back to the real world. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, right on the water, walk to whatever!"
We had a great time. This was a terrific place to stay. It was really nice, close to a ton of places and right on the water. Excellent in my bookGenuine Expedia guest review
This was our first stay at this hotel and we absolutely LOVED the property and the people associated with it! We will definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was fantastic. The room was very nice and the staff was equally as nice. The restaurant on site was also good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pricey, but worth it."
If you purchase an Ocean view room, this is the best location in Montery. EZ access to Aquarim and fun food spots. But if you want to watch TV , it lacks HD and pay previw channels, Wi Fi was OK but slow. Didn't matter much because we were relaxing taking in the views from our comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for families"
Beautiful place! Perfect setting for our families Bay Area vacay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, but surrounding area is a snooze"
Service was impeccable. Extremely nice and polite. We called down to mention that our fridge was not working, and someone brought up a different one within 10 mins, and then the front desk even called to make sure the issue was resolved. Rooftop hot tub was amazing, but no pool. My only complaint is that the restaurant and breakfast cafe next door ( […] but owned by hotel) were extremely pricey and when we asked for a recommendation for a casual lunch place, we were given a coupon for a free appetizer at the priciest and most touristy restaurant on cannery row. Clearly the gal had some incentive to give us that referral- she even wrote her name on the coupon. Pretty sleazy in my opinion. Overall the hotel was really great but Monterey was the worst stop on our Cali trip because of lack of decent affordable food and activities besides the aquarium.

1) Free valet parking with in and out priveledges!!! This alone would make it amazing. 2) Super clean room. The hotel staff cleaned our room twice in one day when they knew we were gone to an event. 3) Location. Any destination in Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, and even parts of downtown are walkable. 4) The most beautiful view from the gym. Literally […] an ocean scape with no obstructions. I WILL totally stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient and comfortable hotel near Cannery row and downtown. Nice walking trail nearby for easy access and exercise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and view!"
This Plaza Hotel is all about convenience. It is just a quick couple walkable blocks from the aquarium. It is has a roof top spa that looks out over the ocean. The food and service at the hotel is fantastic in case you don't want to venture out. The staff was very helpful and always very friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel, Great View"
Excellent facilities. Absolutely awesome views of Monterey Bay as hotel is in charming Cannery Row. Highly recommend getting the ocean view rooms. Staff is very friendly, excellent customer service.

"Ocean View on Monterey Bay"
I visit Monterey almost twice a year and like most people drive in and out on the same day, but staying in Monterey for the weekend at the Monterey Plaza Hotel was hands down, the most beautiful and relaxing experience I've had in Monterey, to just roll out of bed, look over and out at your private deck to the ocean view was just awesome.. This is the […] place to stay on Monterey, look to the west and see the beautiful Monterey Bay, look to the east and Cannery row is at your feet with the Monterey Bay Aquarium only a few short steps away! The Hotel and Plaza are absolutely beautiful, breakfast at Schooners was Fab!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The one and only negative I have for this place is that they turn off the firepit and close the lounge by 10pm. We weren't bothered by the lounge closing so much. We were having a great time by the fire with beautiful views and they came by to take away all the chair cushions and turn out the fire at 10pm. It would be nice if they left it on for another […] hour or so when there are still people hanging out there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a nice hotel. The picture shown on Hotels.com showed a wonderful ocean view room with a large ceiling to floor window so that was what I requested. Well what I got was just a regular window, nothing spectacular. I would not recommend paying for the upgrade to have an ocean view room....definitely not worth it! I did enjoy the convenience the […] hotel was to Cannery Row. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great staff, spectacular view"
This is almost certainly the best place to stay in Monterey. The facilities are amazing, the rooms are great and the setting is spectacular. Easy walk or free trolley ride to anywhere. The staff is extremely helpful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. I can't recommend the restaurant but there are plenty of places to eat in Monterey […] and Carmel.

"same as example"
We had a great time - wonderful service. We would definitely stay at the property again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked this hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary and it met and exceeded all of our expectations. The staff was both professional and friendly, and we received top notch service. Would definitely recommend. Our room was right on top of the ocean and we awoke each morning to the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks just below us. We ordered […] room service for breakfast each morning and the staff was more than accommodating to set up our breakfast table, again overlooking Monterey. The restaurant was right on the water, with friendly staff and great food. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location in the heart Monterey. Very nice comfortable rooms. Our initial room had a lot of street/road noise from vehicles as the street is busy and bisects the hotel. Staff moved us after first night to inside room away from street and thus was much more quiet. Beautiful lobby and restaurant views of Monterey Bay.Genuine Expedia guest review
I did not want to leave... The food in the restaurant was perfection. Staff was so helpful 24 hours a day. This is the only place I would stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel With Crafty Staff and Hidden Charges"
Location: great location in Monterey bay, face to the ocean with fantastic view Facilities and Room: great facilities, clean room Staff: crafty staff we are advise to upgrade our room to a "Full-Ocean-View" room for $75, which turned out to be only part-view and not facing to the ocean. When we go back and ask the front desk, they said rooms facing […] the Monterey bay cost additional $500. The $25 resort fee is unreasonable with many facilities need additional charges to access.
