    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.

    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.

    Very comfortable bed

    Icecold in the hallway, no wifi in the room, poor gym

    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

    Location...location....

    Night noise outside window which required us to shut it and room became stuffy...no ac. Room and bathroom were small.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and well appointed.

    The hotel pictures lead you to believe that many rooms have coastal views which they don'T. The hotel is not small and charming like I'd hoped. Because the hotel is attached to a conference facility, their main restaurant was closed for a private function the night we stayed there. It's not a bad hotel by any means, just not what I was looking for.
