The views of the otters are wonderful. There's also a Peligrin Falcon that hangs out on the roof in the morning. Schooners has not only good views, but the food is great. The staff at Monterey Plaza is incredibly professional.

This is a solid hotel but it needs a few more steps to get to the "luxury status" as they advertise it (and also price it). Here is the gist of the good, bad, and ugly: - Rooms: We had a two bed Ocean Front room. The beds were not as comfortable and the rooms (especially the bathrooms) are in need of a renovation (there may be financial reasons to why they haven't done one yet, which I can respect, but status quo doesn't provide a luxury experience) - Concierge: As much as they were nice people, but didn't have much insight into what is good food and what is "tourist trap" food. All the food suggestions that we got were really poor - Check-in: Nice people but we didn't get any explanation towards the amenities and facilities of the hotel when we checked in. Only our room number and keys. - Valet: Very professional staff and fast service - $36/night - Location: Very good.Walking distance to the shops/restaurant on Canary road (which IMHO is overrated). Walking distance to Fishermans Wharf. Food: Only one restaurant, Schooners. Good quality food. Very good breakfast menu. - Misc.: Free bikes (no kid bikes), The hotel is also oceanfront so it has beautiful views. TV's in the room were not Smart TV's and you had to pay for even a kid's TV program.

We received a discount on an ocean-front room, and it only got better from there. The only fly was the failure to acknowledge we made a reservation for the Thanksgiving buffet and not Schooner's Restaurant. However, Bernice at Schooner's walked us over to the buffet sign-in table and worked hard with a sign-in person to fit us in for the buffet, and I commend Bernice to all hotel guests as well as anyone who has the pleasure of working with her. (I note that two other couples found that they were reserved for Schooner's and not the buffet; one poor lady was almost distraught.) We hope to stay at this Hotel and Spa again soon!

Extremely over priced for what it is. A beautiful building, in a great location in the center of Monterey. Terrible restaurant, limited menu, non existent service. It had rooms available. Nothing else
