Premium price average service

The day we checked in, we had to call house keeping 2 times: mini fridge wasnt working, no coffee in the room and no coffee cups. Next day again they forgot to replace coffee cups. Also, in room dining had very limited options due to some power outage. Rooms were nice and clean, and once we asked for stuff, they complied immediately: gave us a new fridge and everything in < 15 mins. Staff and valet were very nice and polite. But for a premium price that we paid we did not feel like we got enough!

Last-minute weekend

We've stayed at the Monterey Marriott previously, when we want to be in walking distance of downtown and the wharf. No surprises, a reliable property. An on-site self-park option would be nice.

Great Hotel!

We were very impressed with the Marriott, great location just a short drive from downtown. Staff provided outstanding customer service from the minute we pulled up. The only reason I did not give this hotel 5 stars is because they did not provide a complimentary continental breakfast which I feel is not only a must but a great way to thank the customer. I would without a doubt stay here again on my next visit and most definitely recommend the Monterey Marriott!
