“Well located, friendy service, very respectable three star rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

Pluses
- well located in historic downtown Monterey, five minutes from Fishermans Wharf, beach, shopping, ten minutes from Cannery Row and Aquarium
- service unusually good for even a Marriott, from valet to check in desk to concierge
- great ocean views for many rooms
- good sized health club with outdoor pool

No significant minuses...we would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor bay view

I stayed here overnight for a business meeting nearby. The building is a bit dated, but it was clean, everything worked and every person on staff that I encountered was friendly, professional and ready to help. The hotel's location is only a block and a half to Fisherman's Warf and the coastal jogging trail. There are many places to eat all within walking distance. This hotel would be my first choice on a return trip.

We booked this hotel last minute and were not expecting all that much after reading the reviews here. This hotel truly beat our expectations. Our room was modern, spacious, and had a nice view of the harbor. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful. We would certainly recommend this property if you're looking for a nice, business style, hotel in downtown Monterey.

This Marriott is located within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. There are restaurants within walking distance as well. Staff was friendly and helpful. This was our 3rd visit to this hotel. It is nothing fancy but always clean, quiet and easy. We are generally out exploring all day and enjoy coming back to a room where we know we can kick back and relax for a while without being disturbed by noisy neighbors.

My wife and I drove ~100 miles for a getaway in the Monterey/Carmel area over the Labor Day weekend. Overall, we enjoyed our stay @ the Mariott. While it's a clean and attractive property, it's a bit dated and will need a renovation in the foreseeable future. That said, They greeted us as Silver Elite customers, put us in an "Elite Customer" room (even said so on the discreet sign on the door) and overall made us feel special. Their staff is warm and friendly, knowledgeable and the concierge arranged a VIP experience (reserved table, an ocean view window and a free dessert) at the Chart House restaurant-which made for a good dining experience. Though I couldn't use my points towards a room (I'm guessing because they either have a limited # of rooms they can redeem and/or it was a Holiday weekend and/or it was otherwise full), I'd recommend the hotel as it's centrally located in Monterey-which has it's own attractions/appeal and it's only 10 min. from Carmel.

Room Tip: Stay in the higher floors with Ocean View.

The Monterey Marriott hotel is located in downtown Monterey. It is a little away from the cannery row and fisherman's wharf. The hotel is very close to the convention center and is near a few nice restaurants. Montrio is certainly one of the best in Monterey. The rooms are fair for the chain and are clean. On arrival the room had an odor and I was promptly moved to another. It is a nice walk around downtown Monterey. All parking is valet or off site. If attending a meeting at the conference center this is a good place to stay. Not great for kids but it's not to hard to travel around.

The hotel was very nice,they should enclose the pool area.If you are going to Monterey you won't find a better location than this!10 minutes to the aquarium and its a walking distance to fishermans wharf.One thing that surprised me is that it's cold in monterey in the summer!60's just dont cut it for me on vacation but it's definatly worth a stop over in the area on an all out california vacation down the coast.
