Mother’s Day is just around the corner (May 12) and there are more inventive ways to say “Thank You” to your loved Mother than just candy and flowers. Call us and we can customize a gift certificate for Mother’s Day. Take that special Mother on a little overnight road-trip to the Monterey Peninsula to sample one of our special Mother’s Day exceptional brunches by the bay. There are several lodging options available, such as our Aquarium Package that includes tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium along with a night’s lodging at our hotel. We also offer a deluxe “Date Night” or “Romance” package that is sure to please that special Mother. Treat Mom to an exceptional dinner in the evening and maybe present her with a little acknowledgement of your affections with a gift from one of our local artisan jewelers. In the morning, check with our Front Desk Associates for a selection of special Mother’s Day brunches at many of our fine restaurants located on the bay. This is the time of the year that seals and sea otters are clearly visible in the bay and the occasional dolphin might put in an appearance. Bay-side brunch is sure to please. Don’t forget to check our “Featured Special” and craft your own unique Mother’s Day getaway. Visit www.stayatmonterey.com for more info.
