I thought long and hard before writing this review. I planned for this our last night in the USA to be the highlight, and in many ways it was. The welcome was excellent, the service, valet parking and later in the restaurant was first class. The room was clean and very comfortable. On the whole a very relaxing experience in a very nice town. But, and there has to be abut coming, the room was quite small. The bathroom had a perfectly adequate shower but no bath. In short the "wow" factor was completely absent. The complementary water was ok, but in similar hotels in the UK we had been given complementary sherry, whisky or gin. Dinner on the other hand from the tasting menu was first class. Would I eat there again? Yes. Would I stay there again? Probably not!
- 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
