very nice

I had a wonderful stay, check in was quick and pleasant. All staff was very polite and helpful. I had the most interaction with the valet staff as I was mosty coming in and going out and only had room service for meals, but those staff members were all very nice. Valet staff was helpful and efficient!

Came in for the day

It is in a perfect location. It is a 3 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. At the wharf you can take a FREE shuttle to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. It is a beautiful hotel.

We'll be coming back

The staff was extremely friendly. We stayed for one night with our 2 kids (3 and 1). The room was spacious for the kids to run around. Location was within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the wharf. We heard some late night activities from the couple next door but they were on their honeymoon. Plus it didn't wake the kids so we were fine.

Great location, great service

Warmly greeeted at reception and this set the tone for 2 great nights at this hotel. Excellent for local attractions. Parking is a drag (there isn't any!)but there is a nearby public parking lot with plenty of spaces. This is a good hotel. No free internet access in the rooms but you can use free wifi in the lobby plus there is a business centre to print off emails etc. I'd recommend. Didn't try restaurant. You can buy starbucks coffee in lobby too.

Nice weekend getaway

I stayed here with my boyfriend for the weekend. The rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. It was a bit on the expensive side, especially considering the parking fees.

Good Stay

We enjoyed the location and convenience of the hotel and the excellent customer service. Two Queen beds would have been better than the two doubles but over all our stay was very nice would recommend this hotel.

Location! Location! Location!

I had searched for a while trying to find a decent hotel that is located within walking distance to shops and restaurants in downtown Monteray. I knew the Marriott would have decent standards, good prices and availability. Our was a little funky the way the sink area was in a separate cubicle but it made the room nicer. One bad note: the 90's era wallpaper was peeling off the bathroom wall. The best part of this hotel being located very close to Fisherman's Wharf and Alvarado St. which is full of shops, restaurants and bars. We also ran along the coastal trail to the Aquarium and back. I would stay there again.

Catch dinner at Fisherman's Wharf and get seating with a view of the marina. There is a lot of sea life to watch while you eat. Sea Lions, Pelican's, otters. Plus a nice sunset!
