MONTEREY, CA—The Wave Street Inn has opened in the heart of the Cannery Row historic district here, offering 32 rooms with an ambiance inspired by nature and maritime history.
The hotel’s serene, functional design created by Salinas, CA-based Signature Design Group, features shiplap walls that evoke the Row’s fishing heritage while contemporary art, ocean-blue oversized headboards, pops of starfish orange accessories and an on-trend barn door to the bathroom create a laid back coastal vibe, according to the firm.
The 18-mile Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail and the Monterey Bay Aquarium are nearby. Guests are invited to follow author John Steinbeck’s footsteps and explore the neighborhood he immortalized in book form in 1945.
The hotel is also proximate to restaurants and bars, candy shops, art galleries, vintage stores and souvenir haunts. In addition, WiFi is free, along with a refrigerator, chargers, laptop safes and a welcome basket filled with nibbles.
