All in all, each of these lodgings offers a romantic escape from the hustle and bustle of work, responsibilities and the general stress that life can take on us. All are designed, in their own unique ways, to give you respite, relaxation, and some much needed down time with your loved one. From world-class hotels and spas to locally owned, quaint Bed and Breakfasts, Monterey has plenty of romantic hotel hideaways to enjoy.
The Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa takes the Number 1 spot because it literally has it all. Luxurious rooms, quieting views of the Monterey Bay, excellent location and, lest we forget, a spa! Enjoy a massage and a soak in the exclusive Jacuzzis after spending your day checking out the Monterey Bay area. The Monterey Plaza Hotel is the place to stay for a memorable romantic weekend, or week.
Number 3 here is the Seven Gables Inn. A cross between a B&B-due to its quaint, intimate ambiance-and full service hotel amenities, the Seven Gables Inn is truly an oasis away from it all. Check out its website--http://thesevengablesinn.com-because pictures really do speak a thousand words, especially in the case of the alluring landscape surrounding Seven Gables. Don't worry, the interior is just as inviting.
The Centrella Inn, a century-old Victorian Bed & Breakfast that's as quaint and charming as it is romantic and elegant. It takes the Number 8 spot because you don't have to put up in a five-star hotel to have a top-of-the-line stay at an affordable price. Centrella offers something different in that it is a B&B, and with that comes all the nuturing comforts, including a common room with a roaring fire, wine and hors'dourves every evening, along with freshly baked cookies.
