The atmosphere was charming, and the staff was welcoming and generous! We were upgraded and treated to champagne because it was our anniversary. The views were magnificent, and everything was close by! The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were kind and attentive. I was very pleased with our experience! Thank you to the staff for making our experience an anniversary to remember!
Hotel tried to portray a high end experience by providing milk and cookies at check in. Wine reception in the evenings. Turndown Servive at night and a decent breakfast buffet that is included. Their premier ocean view rooms looked like a holiday In or 3 star hotel at the best. Very poor design and ambiance. Bad holiday in furniture , plastic trees and plants. I expected more for $500 per night, at least rooms that looked better. Also, rooms have no balconeys and hotel does not have a jacuzzi. It is possible that the hotel is offering value for the budget traveller (hard to imagine at over $500 per night). I did notice that better hotels where 30% more expensive when I was in Carmel. I would have preferred to pay about 30% more for better accomadations.
Close to every restaurant you'd ever want and walking distance to the beach. Staff were incredibly kind and accommodating. Low ceilings meant that I kept hitting my head and hands on the ceiling fan. The view was not great and there was some kind of industrial restaurant motor running all night. Plus, the room was incredibly hot, even when it was nice and cool outside.
Location, Oceans Ave. The lobby was beautifully done. There is also the excellent Il Fornaio restaurant in the premises. The room was really small, the bathroom claustrophobic. We had 3 large suitcases but barely had room for 2. There was no fridge or safe in the room.
