Head down to Carmel (via the 17 mile drive) for a nice dinner after watching the sunset at Sunset Beach in Carmel. It is one of my most favorite places in the world.

Great Stay

The Marriot Monterey was a wonderful hotel to stay in. Our room was comfortable and cozy. The interior of the room was colorful. The staff was great and extremely helpful. All the local attractions were close by which was convenient.

Great Downtown Location

The Monterey Marriot was very comfortable. The check in was quick and easy and the staff very helpful, the view was amazing. I do this on an annual basis and will probably go back to the Marriot next year.

The sports bar is jamming. Downtown is close to the Wharf, the Aquarium is close by and all the other amenities are local to downtown. I love this park of the state.

I stay at this property due to the close proximity to the Warf. Great dining and just strolling. I wasn't aware of the car auctions and really enjoyed the great cars and antiques.

Marvelous Monterey Marriott

The entire staff---doormen, valets, front desk, concierge, supervisors and housekeepers were in a league of their own. Never have we stayed where the hotel staff was more attentive or more apparently delighted to have us as its guest.

Everything within walking and/or biking distance, including Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, parks, harbor, recreation rentals, shopping, excellent restaurants and coffee shops etc. One of our favorites was the weekly farmer's market, one block away.
