  • Away from the shore and downtown Monterey, the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa isn't the most convenient choice in terms of location. But this Hyatt outpost makes up for that in size: It's one of the largest luxury properties in Monterey with 550 guestrooms, ample conference facilities, 12,000 square feet of relaxation at the Marilyn Monroe Spa and a huge fitness center. Guests also have access to two pools, two restaurants (and a bar) and the greens of the Del Monte Golf Course. The Hyatt Regency's guest rooms and suites come equipped with flat-screen TVs, iHome stereos and high-speed internet access, not to mention minifridges and marble bathrooms. But as pleased as they were with the resort's offerings, some guests lament having to pay the daily $25 resort fee here. But, members of Hyatt's loyalty program can offset costs by redeeming points here.

    La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
    La Quinta, CA
    16.3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2060 reviewsTripAdvisor (2060)
    Free Parking
    With the Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, the La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway for the Hollywood elite since its opening in the 1920s. Stars such as Greta Garbo and Clark Gable used to seek refuge within the resort's whitewashed casitas, located around 127 miles from Los Angeles. Guest rooms maintain a relaxed yet luxurious ambiance with soothing design accents, leather furniture and fireplaces (in most rooms). The resorts' amenities will also provide visitors with all they need for a relaxing or an exciting getaway. Summer temperatures in the Coachella Valley can enter the triple digits, but La Quinta boasts 41 outdoor swimming pools to keep guests cool and comfortable. If it's not too hot, take advantage of this Waldorf Astoria-affiliated resort's five golf courses or the on-site tennis center, complete with 23 courts and private instruction. Recent travelers lauded La Quinta's seven in-house restaurants, especially the Mexican fare of Adobe Grill. However, get ready for a lot of walking: La Quinta's grounds are manicured and lovely, but it's a trek to span the property. Members of the Hilton Honors program can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here, but make sure you're aware of the daily resort fee that applies to all guests.

    The Westgate Hotel
    San Diego, CA
    2.5 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1087 reviewsTripAdvisor (1087)
    The Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego has all the fixings of a royal mansion: antique furnishings, Persian carpets, gold fixtures — the works. Modeled after the Palace of Versailles in France, this 223-room boutique hotel offers guests an experience unlike that offered at the city's more contemporary hotels. Many guests found the Old World interiors of the hotel to be simply beautiful but don't let the decor fool you, the place comes outfitted with necessary modern amenities. All accommodations at the Westgate Hotel feature 49-inch LCD televisions, Internet access and step-out balcony. The property also features a large rooftop pool, as well as the acclaimed Westgate Room restaurant. Previous diners are quick to praise the fine Westgate Room's dishes, though some say the atmosphere felt a little stuffy (not to mention expensive).
