InterContinental The Clement Monterey
Start your day with a relaxing morning stroll towards the Pacific Grove on the Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, a sheltered cove past Hopkins Marine Station. Discover the colorful Victorian homes as you drift through the Pacific Grove, where you will also find a thriving population of harbor seals lounging on the beach. If you happen to catch this natural beauty in the spring or summer, find the brilliant hot pink ice plant lines that make up what is known as the Magic Carpet.
Experience local geography and landscape as you drive down Pebble Beach's famed 17-Mile Drive, and end up in the charming artists' colony of Carmel-By-The-Sea. As you wind your way through Pebble Beach, discover historic and contemporary residences of the grand scale alongside breathtaking scenery of mysterious cypress trees and crashing surf.
From regional coastal specialties to globally-inspired menus and experiences, plenty of dining options are close at hand. Consult our concierge desk for a list of cuisines or ambiances near the hotel. After dinner, wander to the Asilomar State Beach, which faces west toward Pebble Beach and makes for breathtaking sunset views. Wrap up the evening with a well-deserved nightcap at the C bar with timeless champagnes and signature cocktails.
Cannery Row was named in honor of the book.
John Steinbeck wrote the colorful novel Cannery Row, inspired by the location surrounding the hotel. Pacific Biological Laboratories, a historic building of the cannery era, is located next to the hotel, and was the home base of marine biologist Ed Ricketts.
