This last weekend in my trip to Monterey, CA, I paid a visit to the new Intercontinental Hotel right on the Cannery Row.

We entered first through the back of the hotel which opens to a new walkway along the water. They had inviting seating around some fire pits in the outdoor courtyard that looked like a great place to relax with a glass of wine.

Inside, clean lines and cool colors of greens blues and tans created a peaceful yet sophisticated atmosphere. There is a nice indoor seating lounge with a fireplace and nice view to the ocean for those rainy days.


My favorite area was the staircase up to the Lobby. It was reminiscent of some of the Aquarium’s exhibits with water-esque lights projected on the domed ceiling and a jellyfish light fixture.

The C restaurant looked like a good place to eat!

So check it out if you’re in the area!
