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.

We were treated like royalty…The room, the food, and especially the staff were the best.
Pampered and welcomed with a smile… We felt like we were home from the beginning.
In all probably the best hotel experience we’ve had in the US, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
