Situated in Monterey’s historic district, this 19th-century hotel offers a pleasant stay to those looking to holiday in Monterey Bay. Casa Munras Garden Hotel and Spa prides itself on its family values, picturesque grounds and fascinating history. Built in 1824, by Spanish diplomat Don Esteban Munras, the building was one of the first residences built outside of the walls of the old Monterey Presidio. Casa Munras remained in the family for generations, up until 1941. Today, this historic hotel still pays homage to the Munras family, as well as its Spanish-heritage, with Mediterranean-style décor for its guest rooms and hacienda-style architecture.
