  • Popular on-site sports bar

Bottom Line

The centrally located Hyatt Regency Monterey is one of the largest properties in the area, which also makes it a great price for the value. The 550 rooms are spacious, attractive and modern with sleek design touches -- such as behind-the-headboard uplights, backlit bathroom mirrors, and stylish contemporary art. Most rooms have balconies or patios with views of the on-site golf course. However, in a not-so-modern twist, the rooms are not air-conditioned, and even though the climate is temperate, heat waves can make rooms uncomfortably warm. Luckily, the two on-site pools and nearby beach can help with any warmer-than-usual weather.
