Reviewed 22 February 2014

Was there for a conference from Feb 9-12. Reserved room got mixed up. We were given our "Ocean view" on the 5th floor only because I insisted that the reservation was made as early as November last year. The front desk was hesitant to give the ocean view room but she eventually said, " I have to bump out another...

We want to thank Marriott for giving us an amazing long weekend while we celebrate our new marriage during Valentine's Day. Though they were really busy with catering to the guests attending a local conference that happened to be held across the street, they were still able to pay attention to us non-conference guests. We had a lovely "Elite" Suite...

We love Marriott's and were happy to stay in Monterey. The staff was really friendly and helpful right down to the last person. Good location for walking around the town. I really hope we will be able to return for fun and take the grandkids to the aquarium.

I have had three stays at the Monterey Marriott and look forward to my next stay. From the moment you drive up, the excellent service starts (you can valet or self-park at a near-by parking garage to save money). Registration is quick and the staff goes the extra yard to answer questions about restaurants, attractions, etc. The recent remodel is...

Fabulous hotel! This is the best of Marriott---service, room, location, sumptuous breakfast buffet. From the time we arrived at the door and handed our rental car off to the friendly valet, to the moment we left, which seemed all too soon after 5 nights, we were thrilled with our stay!

Had a great stay here. Fantastic downtown location was walking distance to several restaurants and the Fisherman's Wharf. All of the staff here - valet, front desk, housekeeping and restaurant - were overly friendly and accommodating. I'd definitely stay here again.

The receptionist told us at our arrival that there were some building works from 8am in the morning (that is why we got a good deal on Booking) but we ddin't hear a thing and slept like babies. We also went to the pool and the jacuzzi, all was great, would reccomend this hotel.

This is our second stay at the Monterey Marriott this year. Ofcourse, service was great. Valet was prompt but feel the valet charge was a little high for location of hotel. Decent walk to cannery row activities but short walk to fisherman s wharf. Some upscale places to eat all around and some fun looking places behind the Portola across...
