An ideal hotel for experiencing the beauty of the Californian coast with fantastic views, walks and facilities.
Beach | Relaxation | Spa
Located on Steinbeck’s historic Cannery Row, the hotel looks out over the bay’s sparkling water. Its location means ambling afternoon walks to Fisherman’s Wharf and along the town’s Recreation Trail, which stretches 29 miles following the coast and avoiding busy roads. More immediately, there’s an excellent aquarium next door and harbour and whale watching tours departing from the bay. You’re also only steps away from Cannery Row’s waterfront restaurants, bars and shops. However, many find that their time’s best spent on Monterey’s beautiful beaches.
The hotel’s traditional mock–colonial exterior belies stylish, contemporary interiors. Come the evening retreat to your room and relax by the fireplace, mix a cocktail from the mini bar and take a soak in the marble bathroom’s tub, complete with aromatherapy products. Choose a room with a balcony to make the most of spectacular ocean views. There’s also complimentary in-room Wi-Fi along with 37” HD televisions in every room while large suites come with spacious sitting areas.
On the hotel’s street level you’ll find the C Restaurant. Menus showcase the best in Californian coastal cuisine using the freshest seafood and Angus beef prepared with local organic produce. Start with sashimi before moving on to Monterey Bay calamari and perhaps wild mushroom ravioli. For lunch, enjoy a flat iron steak sandwich from a selection of light bites while breakfast is a hearty, a la carte affair. With the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor patio, your dining experience is accompanied by glistening bay views.
Have a refreshing swim in the outdoor heated pool or a long soak in the hot tub as you enjoy the InterContinental trademark hospitality. Come the evening, the C bar serves cocktails, wine and appetisers around the hotel’s Pacific Courtyard fire pit that, as always, has gorgeous bay views. There’s also a fully equipped fitness centre and direct access to a coastal running track along with a selection of massages, body treatments and wellness therapies at the hotel’s spa.
