    This LEED Silver, eco-friendly hotel teams up with the equally eco-conscious Central Coast winery J. Lohr for dinner. Try a 2012 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc served with smoked salmon Carpaccio. Read more

    My room was very comfortable, a/c, flat screen, and an amazing bed. Outdoor pool is kinda small. The cookies that you get at check-in are great. Hotel is right by the warf and pretty much center city

    Great suite. Quiet. Good price & location. Jacks was good and spa massage was awesome. Staff treated us well. No complaints at all other than wish we had cheaper Internet. Worth the $ to valet park.

    Great hotel! They upgraded us when we asked :) and the beds + pillows are to die for! Would love to stay longer.

    Foot traffic is really loud outside our room in the 2nd building. Stay in the main bldg. Cookies at check-in are delish! Comfy bed!

    Overall a gorgeous hotel AND smack dab in the middle of all the attractions we planned to visit. Only drawback was that there was no air conditioning ._. The pool was also a bit small

    Great rooms and amazing service! It is right next to the Fisherman's Wharf and in the middle of town. Highly recommended!

    Breakfast buffet is fantastic. You must try Jack's famous scone! Delicious and I don't even like scones that much!

    Got a free appetizer in the restaurant by checking in with Foursquare. Ckean, large room. Close to everything...you can walk to the pier, beach, cannery row & aquarium

    The couples package with a soak in the tub and a massage was just what we needed! We sipped champagne in the tub and then got amazing massages! Pricey, but worth it! Read more

    Room is the furthest away from the elevator and a huge walk. TV does not work. Front desk slow to respond. Otherwise it's a beautiful hotel, Keurig coffee maker in room and a great hair dryer.

    Not sure if worth the 4 stars. Rooms ok but spa and pool facilities are in a separate building - you need to cross a touristy walkway. No bathrobes in the room. Restrooms in public area not maintained

    The cookie was nice, but the city of Monterey enacted a fee on hotels close to the conference center, which means you pay for a facility you probably aren't using when staying here. AND no free WiFi.

    Hotel has a premier location by Fisherman's Wharf and Peter B's Brewery. My room was hot and it was very noisy (because I was above the pool and next to the highway). I wish the Internet was free.

    Loudest hotel I've ever stayed at... The seagulls are neat but nosy and vacuuming on our floor at almost 11:00 PM? Not cool!

    Ted conference use to be here. The place is great. Just by the wharf and right inside the city center. Drinks and restaurant are great. And they have fantastic omelette for breakfast.

    Typical vampire hotel where they charge for everything! Prefer Motel 6 and a dip in the sea to this place. Staff could be more friendly also

    Disappointed in the hotel. Did not receive maid service. Room keys did not work on 2nd day and we were locked out of our room and was charged $17 parking fee each time we left hotel. Will not return.

    Do not get a room facing Pacific St if you want to sleep. Noise from foot traffic and passing cars is horrible. It's 2am and finally starting to calm down.
