Perched dramatically over the Monterey Bay, the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa combines elegant European architecture, sweeping coastal views and sophisticated style to create the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the gentle sounds of the surf, the fresh scent of sea air and the sight of otters, seals and dolphins at play.
 
The Monterey Plaza’s central location on Cannery Row makes it easy to enjoy the area’s many attractions and activities, including the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium just three blocks away. The range of activities and attractions nearby is nearly limitless. Launch a kayak from the Hotel’s beach, play a round of golf at one of 19 local championship courses, go sailing, whale watch or scuba dive in the protected marine sanctuary of Monterey Bay. Walk to Fisherman’s Wharf, Old Town Monterey or the Maritime Museum, or take a scenic drive to Carmel, Pebble Beach, 17-Mile Drive or Big Sur.
 
A block of rooms is being held for conference participants at the special rates listed above. After October 7, 2015, reservations will be on a space and rate available basis.
