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.” This landmark boutique hotel is tucked minutes away from Carmel's famed white sand beach and features turn-of-the-century charm with premier Pacific views. The hotel's 75-guest rooms reflect a sophisticated beach cottage style and are comfortably appointed. The cornerstone of one of California’s most prestigious neighborhoods, La Playa Carmel places art galleries, shops, fine restaurants, tasting rooms and scenic beauty just outside its doorstep. From the morning's Champagne Breakfast to the sunset wine reception and late-night cookies and milk, guests will relish the hotel's luxury amenities and be treated to an extraordinary Carmel experience.
