When standing in the courtyard, you might think that you were in the south of France. Staff is extremely friendly and seemed to go out of their way to make sure that our every need was fulfilled. There is a $30/day fee to cover all tips, valet parking and incidentals. This was great, as I didn't feel that I was always reaching for my billfold. The breakfast is included, but is a bit limited. There is an additional ala carte breakfast menu, but plan on fruit, pastry and any style eggs for the inclusive meal. Location is great as you are a block off of Ocean Ave, so it's plenty close, but just far away enough that there is no ambient noise. It's also a quick 4 block walk to the beach. We did not have dinner on property, but the chef's tasting experience look fabulous. Rooms are appropriately appointed. Windows needed to be open or our room got rather stuffy. Bed, linens and pillows were comfortable and the ambient heat on the bathroom tiles was a bonus.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1929, the European-style luxury hotel is located just four blocks from famous Carmel Beach and an easy stroll to the village's numerous art galleries, shops and restaurants. Major renovations have transformed the hotel's 20 guest rooms, entrance and landscaped courtyard into a romantic Carmel setting. Luxuriously romantic, the Carmel hotel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships—the perfect Carmel escape getaway. The interior decor of guest rooms is rich and pleasing, warm jewel tones accent the quaint charm of the architecture. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens, enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating, some with soaking tubs. It is one of Carmel’s few full service luxury hotels offering valet parking, room service and highly personalized guest services. The highlight of L'Auberge Carmel is its intimate 12-table restaurant, Aubergine, featuring a 4500-bottle wine cellar. It is the passion of Executive Chef Justin Cogley. All accommodations include a sumptuous continental breakfast. ... more less
