Perfect Quick Getaway From Sacramento

Would recommend Mon, Nov 5, 2012
We just had one night, didn't want to drive far and needed to see the ocean. The hotel is larger than I thought and the views were very nice. The sound of the ocean's waves and tourist distant laughs from canery row were a surprisingly pleasant combination with the windows open. Kind of felt European. Clean, nice furniture, great staff and near lots of activities we hit real quick before running back to Sacramento.

Best of Monterey

Would recommend Mon, Oct 29, 2012
My wife and I had a fantastic experience at the Plaza. Every interaction with a staff member was purely delightful. From Susan answering questions over the phone, to Christopher delivering our luggage...no room for improvement. The say you only get what you pay for, at the Plaza... you get much more.

Dining

Stay away from Bubba Gump's, Sly McFly's, and El Torito. Trailside Cafe is just up Beach steet, and has wonderful breakfasts and coffee!

It doesn't get any better

Would recommend Thu, Oct 4, 2012
The Plaza is the perfect place to stay. It's at the end of cannery row, close enough for a nice walk to the shops & restaurants , yet away from the hustle & bustle. An ocean side view room is worth the extra! The full moon rising over the bay was breathtaking!

Family Road Trip

Would recommend Mon, Jun 11, 2012
Hi I would definitely recommend this hotel. The location is perfect right on the waterfront and it is wonderful being able to watch the sea otters from the hotel. We had lunch and dinner here and both were delicious.

Attractions

Buy tickets for the Aquarium at the hotel. You will not have to queue at the Aquarium ticket office and they are slightly cheaper.

Outstanding

Would recommend Sun, Jun 3, 2012
We had a great a great stay. The wordwork and furnishings throughout the property are very nice, and the attention to detail and service by the hotel staff were impressive. The location and veiws of the Monterey Bay are fabulous. We ate at the on site resturant Schooners - it is truly a wonderful high end restaurant.

Dining

Schooners is fabulous - fine dining with a view.

Enjoyed the stay, but prefer a more modern hotel

Would recommend Fri, Apr 13, 2012
This is a very formal, old school hotel with nice amenities and an incredible staff. Although we prefer a more modern hotel, this place will be loved by those who prefer a classical hotel ambience. The location is nice--right on the water. We could see otters playing below while eating at the hotel restuarant, Schooner's. Our meal at Schooner's was the highlight of our stay--the angry prawns were excellently prepared and the service was 5-star. Great ambience and view as well.

Great Family Vacation

Would recommend Mon, Apr 9, 2012
We took our little ones, two and four, to Monterey for the weekend and this was the perfect place. Good location, nice restaurant, and good value for the price of the room. Then even sold Aquarium tickets in the lobby, so it made it so much easier. We will definitely be back!
