Reviewed 12 October 2010

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in July while touring the central coast. Hotel is a typical "business" Marriott but it is conveniently located in the middle of downtown Monterey. Walkable to everything and attached to a first rate spa, it was a great place to relax and unwind and explore the area. From arrival out front, the parking attendants, front desk staff and concierge were all very helpful and courteous. The hotel on the outside is a little dated, but the rooms inside were typical Marriott and well-kept. Would stay there again!

This hotel is a safe choice in downtown Monterey (and near Fisherman's Whart).
It is a high-rise with valet parking and it is about a mile from Cannery Row and about 15 minutes from Carmel.

There is nothing particularly special or romantic about this hotel but it is comfortable and a good choice if downtown Monterey fits into your plans.

Extremely poor value at $249 + tax pn. Supposed to be a luxury stay but all the "cheap" inns we stayed at were better and it in no way matched the luxury hotels we stayed at. No safe in room, no fridge in room, bar empty and unwelcoming, several unhelpful staff encountered. In short, the worst value hotel we stayed in during our 2 weeks in California (10 hotels).

I spent 3 nights at this hotel. It was a good experience. The room was clean and soundproof except that you could sometimes hear people talking in the courtyard where the pool and hot tub are. Enjoyed the pool and hottub every morning. Pool wasn't the cleanest but was fine. I was there early morning so it was always before the cleaning. The exercise room is good with shower. Free wifi in the lobby and a decent business center. Did the job. Staff was wonderful from the front desk clerk to the doorman. Used the valet parking and it was great. My favourite was the breakfast buffet in the morning. Wonderful selection and so fresh. The highlight of my days. We were there during the Jazz Festival. This hotel was busy because of it as it is located a short walking distance from the location of the festival. Location is everything here. Close to everything. Compared to all the other hotels offerings in that area, i think this hotel is the best bang for the buck. I would recommend!

This Marriott is quite nice, but the location is amazing! We were a few blocks from the town square and the riverfront. There was an Italian Festival while we were there. Lots of fun with live band and dancing but no noise filtered into the hotel. Ate at nearby restaurant recommended by the concierge ,Massaro and Santos, right off the riverwalk and on the harbor. Wonderful! Parked the car for $7 a day at a garage just a few blocks away, instead of paying $20 for valet parking at the hotel. Since everything we wanted to do was within walking distance of the hotel, we only used the car once on a drive up to Big Sur. I would stay here again because of the convenience and the quality of the hotel.

Contrary to other reviews we experienced great service at the Monterey Marriott. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. Our corner room overlooking the bay was quiet with great views. Yes, you have to pay for parking but come on - it's Monterey.

Had a great stay. Greatly preferred the location downtown over ones nearer to the bay and aquarium. Lots of restaurants in the area. Staff at the hotel was great and had outstanding suggestions for dinner. We require an ADA room with a roll in shower and access was great. No problem in the room.
We had a great package that included valet parking and breakfast for 2. Without the package parking is pricey ($20/day).
Also, buy ticket to the aquarium at the front desk. Saves in two ways - tickets are good for 2 days (if you need it) and you can go in the members entrance avoiding lines. Price is the same as a 1 day ticket at the aquarium.
