Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Hotel in Cannery Row, Monterey

Offering stunning views of Monterey Bay, a full-service spa and a private beach, the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa is located only steps from Cannery Row and 10 minutes' walk from the Monterey Bay... The property is in an excellent location overlooking the bay. This hotel is beautiful, and the staff is obviously very well trained to take care of its visitors. We had a problem with extremely noisy neighbors in the next room on night one. The staff, Colleen from the restaurant and Josh (manager) immediately picked up on our situation and gave us a different and upgraded room to which we moved!! They rescued our situation completely. We also spoke at length to a young man named Conrad, who talked to us at the restaurant. He was extremely nice, and was genuinely interested in our conversation. He, along with the others, is a true asset to this property. We will return without a doubt.

A Wild Coastline and Even Wilder Sealife

Known for beautifully undulating coastline attracting a wealth of wildlife, laid-back Monterey is on a small peninsula. Though now more famous for Monterey Jack cheese, it was once an important sardine fishing town. Some former canning factories now house galleries and shops on a street renamed Cannery Row after a novel by John Steinbeck. A museum and his former home in nearby Salinas can be visited.

The fantastic Monterey Bay Aquarium houses a fascinating range of local sealife, which is so prevalent here that you can often see seals basking on craggy beaches, or sea lions roaring away under piers in Fisherman’s Wharf. Whalewatching tours also depart from here.

South is the Monterey State Historic Park, site of historic buildings including Custom House and the Old Whaling Station with a path made from whalebone. To the east are a couple of Monterey hotels on the beach on Booking.com, and there are also several Monterey hotels with indoor pools.

Right by Monterey Peninsula Airport is one of the city’s 7 golf courses, and there are 3 golf courses near the Laguna Seca Raceway.

Whether you’re here for the Monterey Jazz Festival, or for driving the Big Sur Pacific coast road to the south, if you’re staying with kids, don’t forget to check out the Dennis the Menace Park.
