What a disappointment. I work long hours and was really looking forward to this particular conference in beautiful Monterey, CA. I did not get the ocean view room I had reserved and the "partial view" was like 10 minutes from the elevator overlooking a noisy local bar. They nickel and dimed me at every turn, from the cable to connect to the internet to not accepting the return of a jacket from the gift shop (within an hour of purchase) that didn't fit as well as I expected. And they served me undercooked salmon that made me sick for a day. Not at all the experience I had been looking forward to.

There were no down-sides to this mini-vacation trip (at Christmas with family) or the service starting with the assistance with reservations to our stay at the hotel.

Top Local Tips for Monterey

Kayak in the Bay! Don't just look at the Bay from the balcony of the Aquarium - jump on in! We arranged a same-day kayak tour from Adventures by the Bay. For $50, we had an excellent female guide take our small group past the aquarium, out to Lover's Point, and down around Fisherman's Wharf, where we got a close-up view of otters, seals, sea lions, star fish, loons, cormerants, and other wonderful wildlife.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Purchase your aquarium tickets at the hotel. The price is the same but you get to skip the line at the aquarium and the pass is good for two consecutive days.

Mission Ranch We had a fantastic dinner at Mission Ranch... beautiful location, and my husband said the best prime rib he'd had in years.
