Situated on the tip of Monterey Peninsula, Anton Inn invigorates the spirit with quick strolls to beautiful beaches, whale watching, golf, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Guests lounge within contemporary accommodations designed by architect Eddie Hurt, surfing Internet waves and heating up in front of an electric fireplace before constructing pillow forts atop a king-size bed or two queen-size beds. Each morning from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., chefs serve up continental breakfasts teeming with fresh-baked donuts, yogurt, and locally grown fruits, and wine is served with appetizers daily from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
After a thorough belly stuffing, visitors step outside to partake in two days of aquatic explorations at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which earned the 2011 certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor. Guests can peruse exhibits boasting more than 550 species of plants and animals, including giant octopuses, sea otters, sting rays, and sea turtles, in life-like habitats populated by hundreds of ceramic treasure chests. In the Open Sea exhibit, visitors observe tufted puffins cavorting and splashing on the shore as ocean sunfish, moon jellies, and pacific-bluefin tuna taunt the fearsome scalloped-hammerhead shark and the great-white shark beneath the water’s glimmering surface.
Located at the northern tip of Monterey Peninsula and its dramatic landscapes, Anton Inn welcomes guests to slumber in rooms adorned in contemporary décor by architect Eddie Hunt. The nearby coastline affords abundant activities, such as golf, kayaking, and whale watching from beaches resting beneath the watchful gaze of Point Pinos Lighthouse, among the oldest lighthouses in the United States.
