Holiday Inn Express Monterey-Cannery Row
Why We Love This Hotel

- Evening wine and cheese reception
- Steps from historic Cannery Row, a waterside stretch of shops and restaurants
- 10-minute walk to Monterey Aquarium
The Holiday Inn Express Monterey is centrally located to the most popular area attractions. The hotel is a block from the Monterey Bay Harbor, where sea otters and seals are often seen basking on the rocks. A few steps from the hotel is historic Cannery Row, a stretch of avenue along the waterfront lined with boutiques, restaurants and cafes.
With its vertical beige siding, black shingled roofing and multi-paned windows and doors, the exterior looks more like a beach home than a hotel. The interior décor reflects the seaside location. Walls, furniture and textiles are all in neutral shades of tan, beige and sand with pale blue accents.
Rooms are large with space for easy chairs and ottomans. Double deluxe rooms are more like suites with sleeper sofas and coffee tables.
Spend the day at the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, a 10-minute walk north from the hotel. Relax back at the lobby at the nightly wine and cheese reception from 5-6pm. After mixing and mingling with other guests, stroll up Cannery Row and dine alfresco.
