    On Cannery Row


    We love to stay with InterContinental properties. The Clement is another upscale new hotel from the group, opened in late 2008. The hotel is right next to the Monterey Aquarium on Cannery Row. Perfect location!

    The service was excellent. We're a gold ambassador member with the InterContinental. We were suppose to get a room upgrade. But because of the long holiday weekend, they were sold out. So instead the front desk person gave us breakfast vouchers for the C Bar and Restaurant right by the lobby. He was very nice about it. We also got free internet. We got to see one movie in room for free as well. Another perk of being in the club is the late check out time of 4 pm, which was great!

    We stayed in room 435 on the 4th floor of the main building. There are 2 buildings in this resort. The main building is the one right next to the water. There was a fireplace in the room. The balcony was not too shabby. It was right on top of cannery row. We didn't get an ocean view room. The bathroom was kind of small. Didn't get one with the bath tub. There was only the shower. It was kind of cool to see a zen garden on top of the table near the tv. The first I've seen in a hotel room! They do provide cribs for those who travels with babies.

    They have a Kids Club. If you're travelling with kids and would love some alone time, this place is perfect for you! You can make appointment for baby sitting services and organized children activities. On Friday and Saturday nights you can walk in and drop them off at the Kids Club. They do have a requirement of 4 hours minimum. If I remember correctly it was around $17 per hour for the baby sitting service.

    The pool was on the small side as you can see in the picture. The gym was pretty big. And they have a spa.

    Self parking was $18 a night. And valet was $21 a night. They were very nice about parking. They let me park in the garage until I had to leave town. They remade the gate card when I was checking out. I did the self parking.

    Unique Quality: The service was outstanding! Perfect location on cannery row, right next to the aquarium! The baby sitting service was also nice for people who travels with kids.

  • Waterfront Hotel with great customer service


    Nice hotel on Cannery Row near the Aquarium and on the wharf/pier. The hotel is quiet, even with guests attending a software convention, room service good. However, I can hear someone talking in the adjacent room which would be part of our suite when the door is unlocked. It's not a super negative, but.....

    We joined the club and were upgraded to a full suite with 1.5 bathrooms. It was a nicer suite than we expected. 2 fireplaces, balcony with 2 chairs and a table over looking the Monterey Marine Sanctuary, nice work station for computers with extra outlets, master bedroom and bath - really luxurious with 2 sinks, walk in shower and jacuzzi style soak tub, granite and marble throughout and good lighting for makeup. Towels included plush full size and beach and robes & slippers.

    Room service is prompt, and they call prior to leaving to give you notice they are arriving shortly.
    Food, my husband likes and he is pretty picky. Vegetarian dishes are excellent.

    We haven't been to the spa but hear it is wonderful. There is an enclosed bridge to the spa off of the second floor.

    Location: It's on the wharf so there are people and children walking around. We are in the corner suite and hear no noise even on the balcony.

    If you want a hotel that is without the foot traffic, then the Monterey Plaza would be your best choice which has excellent curb appeal and valet parking. It's ambience and luxury is very high end.

    Unique Quality: On the wharf near shops and is very close to everything. Great view. Awesome fireplaces.

    Directions: Wharf hotel.

    New, Fancy Hotel


    The Clement Hotel opened in June of 2008 and is the newest big thing in Monterey. The hotel prides itself on service and luxury with amenities that include a spa, gym and high-end restaurant. Wireless internet is $9.95 for the duration of your stay.

    The hotel is located on Cannery Row, next to the Aquarium. A walkway wraps around outside giving public access to the waterfront views. The hotel covers both sides of Cannery Row and includes a walkway over the road. Store fronts fill the street level.

    Rooms are expensive. Prices range from $210 for a basic room to $1400 for a deluxe suite.

    Unique Quality: The restaurant is quite nice. Decor in the lobby area reminds me of a trip to IKEA.

    InterContinental The Clement - Cannery Row


    The InterContinental The Clement Monterey Hotel is the newest and most expensive hotel on Cannery Row. It has 189 rooms and 19 suites, with fireplaces and ocean views in the vast majority of rooms. This $80 million project took some 25 years to complete, with most of that time spent as a big rain-filled hole on Cannery Row after the initial developer hit financial problems.

    The hotel includes the C Restaurant and bar, an outdoor pool, a 350-car garage. For coastal access and preservation they included a public deck on the water side of the hotel with two large opening to allow light to the tidepools, as well as public viewing of these interesting areas. The hotel also offers two ballrooms with ocean views, a spa, fitness center, library, and perhaps a dozen new shops on both sides of Cannery Row.

    Regular rooms range from $170 to about $500 a night and suites go for $900 to $1400 a night.

More about InterContinental The Clement Monterey

Loved the Clement Monterey

by TripAdvisor Member MarriedinMonterey

Hotel was overall an excellent experience. We had a room on the fourth floor overlooking the water. The room was very well appointed, the fireplace was a really nice touch, the bathroom was so large and wonderful with a separate shower and the tub was perfect for soaking. The room was clean and everything was up to par and my husband and I are germ-phobic, so if we are pleased, this means the place measures up. I will say that one day our room was not cleaned, however, we made one phone call and that was taken care of immediately. The valet parking is the only option, but they do a good job and you really don't have to wait long for your car. The only thing the hotel needs to work on is the restaurant. The food is not very good and the staff seems like they are zombies, at least when we were there. I will say that the hotel might have a problem if they don't get their restaurant together. Otherwise, this is a top notch property. We would recommend and stay again for sure. Also, this hotel is a sanctuary in the middle of a zoo, Cannery Row is a very busy place, and this is a zen like hotel. Very nice.

Cannery Row Area Hotels

by Ewingjr98

I haven't stayed at any of these places, but I post them to give a rough idea of location, price, & amenities. These are all no more than 2-3 blocks from Cannery Row.

The InterContinental The Clement Monterey Hotel is the newest and fanciest hotel of the bunch. It has some 189 rooms and 19 suites, with fireplaces and ocean views in the vast majority of rooms. The also have the tasty, but expensive C Restaurant and an outdoor pool. Regular rooms range from $170 to about $500 a night and suites go for $900 to $1400 a night.

The Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa seems to be the cream of the crop along Cannery Row. Beautiful outdoor dining over the bay, easy access to the small beaches, a short walk to the restaurants and shops on Cannery Row. Room rates in the summer start around $200; for a bay view, expect to pay $150-$200 more a night!

The Spindrift Inn is right up there with the Monterey Plaza as a beautiful & expensive place on Cannery Row with all rooms overlooking the water. It's in the heart of Cannery Row's shops & restaurants. Rooms start at $170 on a weeknight in the summer; weekend rates begin around $270.

The Monterey Bay Inn is located next to the Monterey Plaza near San Carlos Beach. Though it's as expensive as the Plaza at about $200 per night in the summer, it doesn't offer the extra touches like outdoor dining over the bay.

The Victorian Inn is a few streets off the water in a 3-story Victorian mansion. Though it might sound like a B&B, it's actually a Best Western with 68 rooms, partly in a modern hotel. Summer rates are between $200 and $250.

The Holiday Inn Express Cannery Row is one of the cheapest hotels in the area ranging from $150 to $200 per night in the summer, but it is just a block from the water. This would be my pick along Cannery Row.

The Otter Inn & Cannery Row Inn are the two best bets for this area's so-called "budget accommodations." Summertime room rates start at about $150. They seem like decent hotels and they are still in the heart of Cannery Row. If you are worried about location and price, these places might be the best compromise.

Budget accommodations for world travelers saving every dime? Try the Monterey Hostel with rooms for just $20 a night for Hosteling International members & $23 a night for non members. Oops. Did I say rooms? Make that dormitory-style bunk beds in an open bay.

The C Bar and Restaurant at Cannery Row Clement

by Ewingjr98

The Brand New Intercontinental Clement Hotel on Cannery Row just opened in May 2008, so we stopped in for a few drinks and a light dinner within less than a week of opening. We arrived late but were happy to learn they were still serving dinner until 10pm... pretty late for Monterey. We got a few seats in the in the busy bar area, and things were lively and entertaining. Almost every seat at the bar was taken and the table next to us soon filled up with local Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel politicians discussing the upcoming elections and other odds and ends. The crowd was mostly well dressed and older, but one guy was there in his muddy jogging pants.

We each had a hamburger with fries and coleslaw along with two drinks each. Our total bill was an expensive $60, but the meal was really good: a big, juicy, tasty burger ($13.50), with great fries that had just a hint of garlic, and relatively bland slaw (even salt or pepper would have helped!). Beers were $5 each, and Laura's mojitos were about $9.50 each... your usual expensive Monterey prices! My only real complaint was the terrible house "ketchup" -- actually more like a red apple butter and nothing like Heinz.

The chef is Jerry Regester, a former chef at The Lodge at Pebble Beach, and the restaurant manager also spent some time managing Pebble Beach's Tennis Club. The have put together a nice restaurant with great views over the bay and a focus on sustainable seafood.

Great hotel.

by TripAdvisor Member silverpa

We stayed here over the July 4 weekend. Though the hotel was full, it didn't seem crowded.

Since the hotel is only about 5 weeks old, everything was in pristine condition. The location was only about 2 blocks from the aquarium, so if you like being centrally located, the place can't be beat.

There is a very small pool and hot tub on the 2nd floor and a nice exercise room located next to the pool.

Overall, a great experience and we'll definitely be coming again.

Monterey Blues - the music not the place!

by TripAdvisor Member pd7

Enjoyed our stay at the new Clement M with an excellent room and great music as it was the Blues Festival weekend. The hotel is a bit of a mixed bag as other reviewers have noted - new does not always mean good. On the whole it WAS good in fact but the hotel suffers in the same way we have found many new hotels do - as it is often a case of STYLE winning out over PRACTICALITY. Like the Omni in San Diego, and the DoubleTree Anaheim, the bathroom lacks places to hang damp/wet towels - shelves are okay when they are awaiting use but not after! There was a hook just inside the door of our bathroom - but if you used it, whatever was hanging on it covered the light switch. This hotel is quite expensive and yet they do not provide a shower cap, cotton-wool buds (Q-tips), fact no US hotels provide slippers in our experience but this is common in the better hotels throughout Europe. Our shower door was not sealed properly so water leaked and on very smooth marble that can be very dangerous (we both slipped but not badly thank goodness). The extractor in the bathroom was almost non-existent too - why have one if it isn't of good quality? These design faults are probably easily fixed but why do they exist at all - such flaws should be well-known about after all! Good to have a 'business centre' where PCs can be used for free (like the DoubleTree but NOT the Omni who charge you for everything!). Other things: the aquarium was very good; Fisherman's Wharf is worth a short morning or afternoon (no more); 17 Mile Drive is worth doing but it really should be free - we were quite disgusted that a stretch of road around the coast has to be paid for (aren't all the golf courses and rich residents making enough money already?) Carmel was also well worth visiting - we had snacks & beer at Clint's place - COOL! A very special mention should go to Sly McFly's - a bar with great food, great beer, great staff and superb music - we saw John 'Broadway' Tucker perform with the (we think) house band and he & they were truly excellent!! Another special mention too for the very friendly people at Cabo's Wild Mexican Seafood (at the Wharf) who provided us Brits with a great fish'n'chips plus a pair of yawning pelicans!!

A luxury hotel experience

by TripAdvisor Member Hailes family

Stayed here for one night in July 2008 whilst driving San Francisco to LA. Wished I'd stayed longer!

Like others writing reports on this site I got a good deal on price because I booked soon after the hotel opened - $169 (£90) each for a king and a double double on the street-side annex, booked directly on the hotel website. Well worth it!

On arrival at 8pm the valet parking and check-in were very efficient, with the staff very happy to show off the hotel facilities. The expierience with staff was positive throughout, marred only slightly when the hire car was returned to us with scratches on the door handles. At least this suggests the car had been moved round to their garage overnight - but with a four story garage behind the street side annex those driving their own cars might prefer to park it themselves rather than take the risk of having the car damaged (or left on the road as another contributor reports on this site).

Very good sized rooms, nice amenities including a gas fired flame effect fire in each room. My wife loved the sea otter toy nestling in the bed covers on arrival. We did get slippers and heavy-weight bath-robes in the bathroom, plus the orchid (though in one room this was dying, so wonder how long they will continue with this feature).

As others have commented, the room designers have obviously never used their rooms. The absence of a hanging rail in the bathroom for wet towels is an amazing omission - do they expect guests to leave them on the floor to be replaced by the maid service ? What happened to the conservation ethic the neighbouring aquarium epouses ? Also our shower door leaked as well, and despite being only a few weeks since opening, the shower control did not work properly.

A thick sea-mist greeted us the morning of our stay, no doubt exacerbated by the fires still then burning south of Monterey which had closed the CA1 route South. This encouraged us to eat breakfast in the "C" restaurant, a pleasant but pricey experience - no doubt you could save a lot by walking out onto the street, paricularly just past the acquarium at the outlet centre.

I always object to paying $10 for internet access in the room; free wireless is available in the lobby area, but why not drop the charge for wired internet access in the rooms ?

Light and Breezy in the Lap of Luxury at The Clement

by TripAdvisor Member Grizzy

Spectacular property with tasteful decorating and lovely details everywhere...from the floral arrangements to the gorgeous black and white framed photos all around. Serene color palette set against the rocky shore of Monterey right in the heart of the cannery. We worried the street noise would be a problem, but we didn't hear a thing and our room faced the Cannery side. Everything was top notch, precise, fresh and clean. Super comfortable beds with a variety of pillow choices. Huge room (2 doubles) held our family of four nicely with no one tripping over each other. Elegant bathroom with tub and separate shower. Lots of really thick extra large towels, plasma TV, zen rock garden and bonsai tree on the counter! Our girls were off to the pool in the thick white spa robes provided in the room. Location was just perfect. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby and the Aquarium is right next door! The valet parking was a breeze, just call down and your car is brought around. Nice, cute young guys working always with a smile on their face. Jason recommended Monterey Fish House and it was absolutely the best meal we had while there. Would recommend InterContinental The Clement to ANYONE. First class, wonderful experience in every way!

Lovely stay

by TripAdvisor Member UkTravellingFamily

Had a lovely stay at the Intercontinental in Monterey. We had a suite which was very spacious, very clean, decorated in neutral dove greys / beiges, in a contemporary style. King size bed very comfortable, desk area with internet access available at a reasonable $10 per day. Our kids liked the miniature Japanese garden on the desk! Huge balcony area with outdoor seating. Tea and coffee making facilities available in room. Good sized bathroom with separate shower cubicle. Slight niggle was asking for extra bedding, the rollaway bed was made up with only a sheet, no blanket, took a couple of attempts to get right. Room service menu varied and quick to be delivered. "C" restaurant also very good and reasonably priced. Location is the best, a 1 minute walk to the aquarium. Valet parking excellent, $20 a day well worth it, no hunting for spaces or having to find change for those parking meters! Nice touches like the i-pod docking station bedside alarm clock (once figured out how it works), bathroom orchid. Very helpful concierge who arranged our aquarium tickets, cinema listings and taxi to Del Monte shopping mall. Of course when on Cannery Row had to buy a copy of Steinbeck's Cannery Row from the (small) gift shop at reception area (just watch- the price on the book is not what is charged - no problem sorting out though) Excellent quality hotel, extremely reasonable rate for our stay. Great job getting it up and running so smoothly after just opening.
