Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa is a luxurious hotel that traces its roots to the early 1900s, when the historic House of the Waves estate graced the same idyllic shoreline. Today, as the grand dame of the bay, Monterey Plaza provides guests with classic, coastal hospitality.  From accommodations to entertainment, cuisine and service, Monterey Plaza is a terrific choice.  We have held many seminars at this lovely property and have always been completely pleased.

Conjuring up images of crashing surf, charming seaside shops and restaurants and, of course, the legendary Monterey Aquarium, Monterey Bay has a classic, enduring appeal. It is home to some of the world’s most spectacular coastline, scenic hiking, driving routes, glorious wine growing valleys, outstanding shopping, and pristine golf courses at Pebble Beach – there are tons of things to do in Monterey. Monterey Plaza is also adjacent to the historic site of Cannery Row, abundant with specialty shops and galleries, along with over 25 restaurants and attractions.

Monterey’s Great Drives - Head out for a day of wine tasting in Monterey’s Wine Country, home to over 85 vintners and growers. Explore the incredibly scenic ride along 17-Mile Drive, lauded for its magnificent scenery. And no trip to California’s central coast is complete without a sojourn to charming Carmel-by-the-Sea, or a visit to Big Sur, known for its epic scenery.

Monterey Bay Aquarium - The Monterey Bay Aquarium is consistently ranked #1 in the United States for its innovative exhibits and unsurpassed visitor experience. With a mission to inspire conservation of the oceans, the aquarium is a stunning showcase for the habitats and sea life of one of the world’s richest marine regions.

Golf - The Monterey Peninsula is ranked the number-one golf destination in the world by Golf Digest Magazine.

Hiking - With a seemingly endless variety of landscapes, and numerous state and regional parks, Monterey County is ideal for hikers.  Enjoy Point Lobos and Jacks Peak parks for gorgeous scenery and animal life.
