We just completed a 1-night stay at the subject Marriott on the way up to San Francisco from SoCal. This is one of the rare full-service Marriotts I've been to that does NOT have a concierge lounge. They offer their breakfast buffet to gold and platinum elites (including everyone in the room), but make a point to inform you that it's only offered Monday thru Friday. Buffet was good, check-in and valet service fast and friendly ($20/day with no on-site self parking), and we were upgraded to a "corner" room with a larger desk/closet area, and a bigger bathroom than usual. If you're in this area, the local aquarium is a must-see. A good restaurant choice is Passionfish in Pacific Grove. Overall, a pretty good stay.
