Have stayed at most of the better places in Monterey area when visiting our daughter in Carmel Valley.
Among the many attractions is the small size of the hotel because it does not have conventions or large business meetings. There are plenty of large hotels for this and they earn their ratings for their ball rooms, convention rooms, gems, etc.
The Spindrift is right in the action of the tourist area, but seems like it is on a private island.
Cannery Row is along the ocean so rooms are divided with views of the sea lions basking on rocks with waves breaking around them and rooms with views of cannery row. We have stayed at both and really enjoyed each.
Check in is a pleasure, and as soon as you enter your room you know you made the right choice, the ambiance just seems to slow down time.
Wonderful bedding, private fireplace, complimentary cheese and wine at afternoon tea time, continental breakfast included and brought to your room.
The location is within walking distance of major attractions and numerous fine restaurants, including right next door (serves as hotel's resturant).
Great for couples, romance, just recharging, and sight seeing.
