Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa 5 stars

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... Hands down, the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Comfort bed, super clean ( cleaning is done twice a day), spacious, great ocean view ( even spotted a whale breaching thanks to the complementary binoculars!), super fast WiFi, great restaurant and a Cafe and located in a central place. Above all, the staff was so nice and friendly - they extended our stay by one more night (upon our request) for the same price we paid up until then, despite prices climbing up during that day + agreed for our request to postpone checkout by 1 hour Max from the front desk is the best - super friendly & informative!

FAQs about hotels in California

The American Dream

From the searing depths of Death Valley to the snow-capped peaks of the Lake Tahoe mountains, California is a wonderful US state that sums up the American Dream. Nowhere is this more evident than Los Angeles, the home of Hollywood and many stars who grace its red carpets.

In the south-west, Anaheim has a great range of Californian hotels near Disneyland where the magic of the movies comes to life. Sun-drenched San Diego, located close to the Mexican border in the state's south-western tip, is a popular spring break destination as is Palm Springs in a valley surrounded by rugged mountains.

In the well-known wine region of the Napa Valley the vineyards produce some fantastic wines, while Monterey is best known for its spicy cheese and the beautiful coastline that becomes the Big Sur coastal drive. Another driving adventure is the fabled Route 66 and parts of it pass through California, ending at Santa Monica pier.

Along the coast is beautiful Santa Barbara, and further north San Francisco is home to a good proportion of Californian hotels with indoor pools on Booking.com. The Golden Gate city is set around an exclusive bay which ends at Silicon Valley in San Jose, while famous Berkeley University is just across the water. The stunning natural beauty of Yosemite National Park is further east, while Sacramento is to the north-east.
