The Intercontinental The Clement Monterey was a truly beautiful surprise that we did not expect. If the facade is not exceptional in itself, you just need to enter the hotel to change your mind. With a privileged location, the Intercontinental The Clement Monterey features incredible rooms and suites with direct ocean views. A gem we are looking forward to stay at in the future.

We arrived at the Intercontinental The Clement Monterey after a night at the Portola Hotel. We had arrived a day early in Monterey, as we had left Sequoia in a bit of a rush due to the overwhelming and unbearable heat of our Airbnb.

The Intercontinental The Clement Monterey can look a bit “plain” at first, because from the street, it looks a bit like any hotel in the city. Yet … its location is outstanding. Once we got to our room, we had the wonderful surprise of discovering a direct view of the ocean, a small balcony and pure happiness.
