InterContinental The Clement Monterey
Set right on the waterfront on Cannery Row, just a block from the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and only six miles from Pebble Beach Golf Course, the location of this luxury hotel and spa is certainly tough to beat. It even has its own pier and boardwalk, from which whales and sea otters can often be seen swimming in the peaceful Pacific. Light and spacious rooms boast marble bathrooms with separate tubs and showers, while suites offer private balconies with spectacular ocean views. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring Monterey Bay right up to the award-winning C Restaurant, whose menu is loaded with seafood specialities. There’s also a spa offering a full range of services, a 24-hour fitness centre and an outdoor pool and hot tub.
