    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
