Three hundred dollars a night, no luggage stand, $12.95 for internet access (not wireless), very small pool (no bathrobes), $20 to park, very average room. i will not stay on my next trip to the area. There are many restaurants within walking distance.

The Marriott is excellent a one of the best hotels in Monterey. the location could not be better its right in downtown about a block from fishermans wharf with lots of dining. cannery row is only about a 2 mile stroll down a bike/walking path along the edge of the bay. cannery row has lots of dining,shopping and wine tasting. also at the end of cannery row the Monterey Bay aquarium is a must see. The hotel has a great view of the bay and we were not even in a room that was advertised with i bay view. The staff was amazingly helpful everyone greeted us and made us feel welcome, the concierge was so helpful and thoughtful. We are already planning our return trip to the Monterey Marriott.

We only had one night and arrived in darkness. We hadn't booked and were pleased to get a room with 2 doubles to share. We left early the next day, but the hotel itself ticked all the boxes, apart from no free internet in the rooms, so sadly had to go to the bar :) The breakfast included was fantastic, eggs cooked to your liking.

Stayed here for a conference.

The rooms are comfortable but the decor is a bit frilly for my taste, and completely unrelated to being in Montery. Parts of the bathroom look slightly dated, but not enough to concern me. It was quiet, the bed was comfortable, and hot water was plentiful and consistent. Staff were friendly. Parts of the conference were catered, and the food was good.

Main complaints: the meeting rooms and hallways were too cold. The internet service is usable but a bit slow and the connection takes a while to get established.

A very short walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Cannery Row and the Aquarium are also walkable, although at about half an hour some might find them too far.

This hotel is rated at 4 stars by Priceline. Maybe based on amenities, perhaps, but on service, not a chance. Lines at check-in were long, there were hairs in the shower and on two of the pillows. No non-valet parking, so expect to pony up an additional $20 on top of already overpriced rooms. It seems like Marriott Hotels in general, and this one in particular are starting to want to nickel and dime the guest to death. If it's not valet parking, then it's an absurd $13/night internet charge, or $3.50 for a bottle of water. Not to mention threadbare towels? That said, the bed was comfy, and the TV was gorgeous, as was the Lobby. Otherwise? not worth it.

My husband and I chose the Marriott in Monterey because of its central location. We were able to walk to the aquarium, the Cannery District, the wharf area, and downtown stores. What a fantastic spot! The hotel itself is beautiful and very clean. Our room was average size, but very comfortable and well appointed. The bed was comfortable; however, the mattress did not have a lot of support and was too soft (my back hurt in the morning). The pillows were way too soft--luckily, I brought my own. The pool is heated and so is the jacuzzi; however, there were so many children we were not able to use them. Of course, that is probably because we went the week after Christmas--when all the schools are out. You don't notice the kids though because the rooms are extremely quiet--they obviously have good soundproofing.
The staff is wonderful--the cleaning personnel, the concierge, the desk clerks, etc. were all extremely nice, friendly, and caring. Valet parking is $20 per night (way too much in my estimation), and you MUST valet park your car, so you can't escape the charge. There is free wi-fi in the main lobby; however, if you want to access it in your room it costs $12.00. That didn't please us either...I mean, come on...really?
Overall though, it is a great hotel with a great staff in a wonderful location. If we're in the Monterey area, we'll definitely stay there again.
