I love exploring the coast in California, as a child my parents always took me on road trips for the weekend and we would go up and down the state. One of our favorite places to visit was Monterey. I hadn’t been there for awhile and wanted to go take a little trip up there. The city is so cute and charming.

It’s steps away from great restaurants and bars. Also, if you wanted to explore the cities in the central coast like Carmel and Pacific Grove it’s centrally located that you can easily explore. The hotel has a newly remodeled lobby that is gorgeous. It is filled with trees that make it feel really fresh and airy but also very inviting to sit…
