La Playa Hotel

Five Star Property
The Grande Dame Of Carmel Hotels And Resorts

With its convenient proximity to the Pacific Ocean, its impeccably landscaped grounds, an intimate lobby, and professional staff, it comes as no surprise that La Playa Hotel and Cottages-by-the-Sea has been recognized as the Grande Dame of Carmel. Treat yourself to the landmark-classic choice of Carmel hotels, where you will find each detail well thought out and anticipated every time you return. A Mediterranean villa in 1904, today La Playa still rests in a picture-perfect setting – amidst oceans of flowers and cypress, with the sea itself just a stroll away. Here, design, décor, and atmosphere are all in the classic tradition of good taste. Discover this legendary Carmel California hotel, amid some of the world’s most spectacular scenery:

Just four blocks from the town’s world-famous boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants
A short drive from Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Sur, and Point Lobos State Reserve
