About La Playa Carmel
Long-known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history, Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of America’s most celebrated and loved coastal towns. Set in a historic mansion, La Playa Carmel enjoys an enviable location just two blocks from the village and the beach, and a few minutes from downtown Monterey.
The hotel’s 75 guest rooms boast views of the Pacific Ocean or the lush, private gardens. There’s an outdoor swimming pool and terrace, as well as enchanting hidden courtyards dotted throughout the grounds. An impressive champagne breakfast is served each day in the beautiful Library, and a delicious light lunch menu is available in the bar and lounge.
A stay at La Playa Carmel will put you in easy reach of the town’s serene beaches, charming art galleries, boutique stores and restaurants. You’ll also be perfectly placed to explore the wider region of this beautiful stretch of the California coastline.
