I booked a room for three nights in March at the Marina Dunes Resort in Marina, about 10 miles from Monterey. It's a suite with an ocean view. This place is nice but not as centrally located. It's about half as much money as an ocean view room on Cannery Row (my preferred location), but it allows me to take two trips instead of one. It's all paid for with frequent flyer miles.
I figure I'll get a lot of reading done, which actually seems more productive with an ocean view for some reason, as if you're actively relaxing. They also have free wireless Internet, because I know within a few hours of brain shutdown I'll have ideas that need exploring online.
