An easy walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, this older hotel is currently being renovated but definitely worth a stay. We booked a premier room, a very large room with a fireplace, high ceilings, a long window seat and table, two beds, and a nice desk for three friends on a weekend away. We were surprised by a free bottle of wine on our arrival, and every afternoon there was a happy hour spread of red and white wine, cheese, crackers, and apples in the breakfast/lounge area downstairs. The staff was friendly and accommodating, there was convenient underground parking, and we even had a glimpse of ocean out our window. The only downside: some traffic and minor room noise. We were on a top floor, but the windows were single paned and the soundproofing between the rooms was not great. Similarly, the old gas fireplace did not have electric ignition. Hoping that the renovations will help with that. less
