The hotel has aged poorly. Bed and pillows uncomfortable. Air handling system sounded like a plane was taking off.. horrible loud. The carpet is worn, needs updating. Prices are horrible high for everything. Just not worth the spend.

I believe it’s the only four-star hotel in Monterey AND on the bay. This being our third year in a row staying there, we always request a room with a balcony on the ocean and usually ask for a particular room or two which they gladly comply with. The staff is extraordinary and go the extra mile for you as well. I cannot wait to return next fall.

Disliked: Staff & service
Great location. Placed in a room we did not book. Requested to be changed. Manager could not accommodate our request and what we booked. Very outdated room. Spa was nice and spa manager Betty was incredible. Ultimately when a guest is not happy the hotel should do everything in their hands to make sure that is fixed. Very overpriced for what the hotel is like. Would not stay here again.
