Explore Seaside

Don't Go Home Without

While thrill-seekers appreciate the hotel's location near the Monterey County Fairgrounds, guests seeking a peaceful getaway should spend an afternoon in the charming nearby town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, home to picturesque cottages and elegant eateries.

Must See

Guests are always thrilled by the hotel's location near the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where they can watch a giant octopus solve a maze, witness the unique beauty of over 15 species of seahorses and glimpse leopard sharks lurking in a 28-ft tall kelp forest.

Must Do

You can attend amazing performances by top musical artists at the Fairgrounds at events such as the Jazz Festival, Blues Festival and Reggae Fest, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium or an event at Laguna Seca Raceway, visit one of the many golf courses, such as the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links, or just take in the beautiful, dramatic central coast shoreline.

Local Tips

With only a 50-minute drive, you can discover two must-see attractions: Big Sur, where you can hike along a coastal waterfall or through majestic redwood forests, and the 102-year-old Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, named the "Best Seaside Amusement Park."
