More Room Types

Laze the days away at an ideal location on Cannery Row and overlooking Monterey Bay. Defined by sweeping coastal views, the AAA 4-Diamond Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa is also near many attractions. Walk to Fisherman's Wharf, where you can dine and shop, then head to Monterey Bay Aquarium to see exhibits and take a tour.

Back at the resort, sink your toes in the sand at the beach or head out on a kayak. Whale watching is also a popular activity (in season). The patio at Schooners Coastal Kitchen & Bar suspends over the bay and invites guests for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Don't miss visiting the Vista Blue Spa, voted one of the top U.S. hotel spas by Conde Nast Traveler readers in 2013. Aside from booking treatments like a custom massage and fruit enzyme peel, spend time soaking in a whirlpool tub while enjoying a view of the bay. The spa also has a sauna, eucalyptus-infused steam room and offers yoga classes.

In the evening, slip into a spa-quality robe and unwind in your plush room -- all accommodations come with a down feather bed, marble bathroom and a soothing colour palette. Some rooms have balconies and sea views with binoculars, great for keeping an eye out for sea life.
Guests are responsible for a $27 nightly resort fee that covers parking, Internet, spa and fitness centre access.
