About Us

An unforgettable escape awaits at La Playa Carmel. Originally constructed as a luxurious mansion in 1905 by an artist as a gift to his wife, a member of the Ghirardelli family, for over 115 years this landmark hotel has been the crown jewel of the Monterey Peninsula.

Experience premium amenities including a heated outdoor pool, decadent champagne breakfast buffet, hosted sangria reception, and nightly chocolate chip cookies — a nod to the previous occupant of confectionary fame — all amidst stunning backdrops of award-winning gardens, timeless turn-of-the-century architecture, and sweeping seaside vistas. Be transported to Carmel's bohemian past at Bud's, La Playa's famed bar and restaurant. Featuring inspired cocktails that will put your local knowledge to the test, a curated collection of historic memorabilia, and a dining menu of comforting classics.
