THE GRAND DAME OF CARMEL
Preserved for history, modernized for today.
Once a luxurious mansion built in 1905 by an artist as a gift to his wife, a member of the Ghirardelli family, for over 100 years La Playa Carmel has been known as the
“Grande Dame of Carmel”. Newly restored, this 75-room historic hotel is located just steps from the sands of Carmel Beach and the renowned shops, galleries and
restaurants of charming Carmel-by-the-Sea. The cornerstone of one of California’s most prestigious neighborhoods, this landmark features meticulously
tended gardens, intimate patios, secluded courtyards and a tranquil terrace swimming pool.

We were treated like royalty…The room, the food, and especially the staff were the best.
Great location near water and downtown. Wonderful breakfast.
