Monterey Bay - Carmel

Why We Like It

  • A stunning mansion built in 1905 for part of the Ghirardelli family, recently restored and two blocks from the water. Can’t get much sweeter than that.
  • Green gardens, quiet courtyards, a couple even more secluded patios and a pool on a terrace.
  • The library’s not just for reading. It also hosts the on-the-house Champagne Breakfast, featuring fresh produce, locally sourced ingredients and a cheese board!

Really cute hotel! Breakfast was excellent along with check-in cookies and late evening wine. Room is just ok but probably typical for the area. We enjoyed our stay!

Incredible, kind, attentive service from everyone from the front desk staff to the bartender and management staff. Had the best view of the ocean and sunset. Loved the warm cookies and champagne breakfast in the morning. Most enjoyable stay I’ve had anywhere in over a decade.

It was a cool hotel in a great location. You can’t go to Carmel without taking your sports car. But they didn’t have any parking available when we arrived, and no valet. They suggested I jam my car into a tiny space across the street, where the person behind would have to touch bumpers to get out. This isn’t NYC
