"The room was beautiful and we very much enjoyed our stay. The restaurant was good and kudos to the staff for turning this into a great experience.”

Eric B, Guest

Originally built in 1822 and the first residence in Old Monterey located outside the Spanish Presidio walls, Casa Munras served as a family home and trading base for Don Esteban Munras, the last Spanish diplomat to California. The building and its gardens were converted to hospitality use in 1941. In 2006, GGLO designed improvements to the public spaces in the 24,500 square foot main building, including the registration lobby, café and meeting rooms, as well as for all guest rooms.

Additionally, four new guestrooms and a suite were added to the second floor, bringing the total number of Casa Munras guestrooms to 169. A new porte cochere and dining terrace were added to further enhance improvements to the existing pool and landscape on the 4-acre site.
