THE GRAND DAME OF CARMEL
Voted Best Hotel on the Monterey Peninsula
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 Carmel Hotel features meticulously tended gardens, intimate patios, secluded courtyards and a tranquil terrace swimming pool.

Pampered and welcomed with a smile… We felt like we were home from the beginning.
The Amenity package alone makes it worth it and we loved the late night cookies & milk as well as the FANTASTIC breakfasts.
The best part of our stay was probably the breakfast buffet…We had our fill of eggs, potatoes, prosciutto, oatmeal, and coffee.
