1 South: Monterey, Hyatt Regency Monterey


Hyatt Regency Monterey  1 Old Golf Course Rd., (800) 233-1234, (831) 372-1234.  4 stories; 550 rooms; $$-$$$.  2 heated pools; 2 hot tubs; fitness room; full-service spa; 6 tennis courts (some night lights).  3 restaurants; room service.  $20/day resort fee.  This sprawling resort is located away from town, adjacent to the scenic Del Monte Golf Course (1300 Sylvan Rd., (831) 373-2700.)--the longest continuously operating golf course west of the Mississippi (for more than 100 years).  Bicycle rentals are available, and Camp Hyatt operates for ages 3 through 12. Choose from two restaurants.  Knuckles Historical Sports Bar has a casual but sleek atmosphere and 20 flat-screen TVs tuned to the action.  A three-sided “Table Tender” booth with its own self-serve spigot in the table’s center can be reserved.  Larger, more sophisticated TusCA Monterey offers a choice of breakfast menu or a buffet that includes an omelette station.  Dinner brings on a delicate artichoke bisque, tender ricotta gnocchi with sautéed garlic, and delicate ravioli stuffed with a pear-gorgonzola mix and topped with a delicious rich Cognac cream.  Pastas are housemade, and pizza is also an option.
