    It was walking distance to the warf and the shops on alvorado. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Bell boy was prompt as well. Wish we stayed longer to enjoy the pool and restaurants.

    even though we found a good deal the price is still pretty high.

    This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. It is close to wineries for wine tasting. Close to the beach, lots of waliking trails, bike rides, the spa and just relaxation.

    A lot of additional charges. We thought we got a good deal thru Booked.net, however when we arrived they added on $17 a day parking and many additional fees. Just something we will research when we look at other places to stay.

    Fabulous

    The cleanliness of the room, nice bed, beautiful area. The staff was very nice. Location was excellent.

    All the towels were very rough, smoke alarm was on red, we are in our sixties and they put us a long distance from the elevators. Almost $20 a person for breakfast is very pricey.

    Everything was excellent. Warm Choc Chip cookies upon arrival. The hotel staff was pleasant, the concierge was excellent, knowledgeable, informative, and patient. Conveniently located and a nice 15 minute walk to Cannery Row.

    Very good

    Most of the staff were polite & eager to be of assistance. Ei: bellhop, valley, room service & bar tender. I liked how it seemed real inclusive with a bar & restaurant on sight, equipped with fireplaces even.

    The pool was supposed to be heated but did not seem very warm. Likewise, the hot tub said it was a 102 but definitely was not over 100. The price seemed a little steep for the room $299 a nite.

    I was attending my 55th class reunion from Monterey High that was held at the marriot and the proximity was great. Also to be ablre to walk to the wharf for dinner and lunch was great.

    At 350+ the rate was high but considering the rates for surrounding locations I guess it was all based on you pay for what you get
