    Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

    Pay wave

    Turn right under the overhang of the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa. Follow the circular sidewalk along the driveway until you get to the front entrance to the hotel. Then, turn right and enter the lobby of the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa.

    The Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, which is perched dramatically atop the beach, is one of our favorite places to take a break along the tour route. Explore the elegant dark paneled lobby. Schooners Coastal Kitchen & Bar, which is to the left down the stairs, is open for waterfront dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a delightful Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4 pm to 6 pm throughout the year. On summer evenings, Helmsman Lounge in the lobby opens at 4 pm. You can purchase a beverage of your choice here and take it outside and sit by the fire pit.

    There is also a coffee shop off the plaza which is pet-friendly.

    Now exit out the back door which is to the left of the lobby fireplace.
