I had planned on just a one night stay, but after becoming so enamored with the hotel and it's location, I decided to stay another night. Juliana, the front desk clerk, made all the arrangements for me. What a great personality and work ethic! The room was immaculate, comfortable, and worth every penny.
Rather than being boxed in, the location next to San Carlos Beach with the bay at the rear gives more of a natural connection to Monterey Bay. Plus it's centrally located between the shops, restaurants, and aquarium of Cannery Row and the old time ambience (and great restaurants) of Fisherman's Wharf.
While a thoroughly modern hotel, it seems to exude a hominess that makes you look forward to returning after a day of adventure. There may be newer hotels with valet parking, but I'll settle for parking my own car over nouveau-chic pretentiousness any day.
I can't wait to go back!
