Hotel Abrego, Monterey

Hotel Abrego

Hotel Abrego has been built in a Spanish hacienda style, with adobe bricks and shingled roofs. Located next to the lobby, the Abrego Lounge, with its open fireplace, offers a warm, informal setting for drinks and light snacks, with additional patio seating next to the outdoor swimming pool and hot tub should you wish to enjoy the fresh air. While the amazing seafood of the wharf is a short stroll from the hotel, there's an on site restaurant serving a delicious variety of food as well as local beer and wine.
