Hotel Report

Why Stay At L'Auberge Carmel

This 20-room whitewashed hotel, in tony Carmel-by-the-Sea, is just four blocks from the Pacific and 120 south of San Francisco.

The Scoop

The whitewashed interiors of this 1929 luxury hotel channel a Greek Island hideaway, despite the hotel's location in California's Carmel-by-the-Sea, a posh, oceanfront town along the Pacific, just 120 miles south of San Francisco. All 20 rooms are furnished with French windows, antique doorknobs, and original black-and-white photographs from hotelier (and amateur photographer) Helmut Horn, while the property itself is arranged around a courtyard and stone fountain. Located just 15 minutes from the Carmel Valley wine region, the 12-table on-site restaurant, Aubergine, has a 4,500-bottle wine cellar, curated by the hotel's own wine director. The perfect dish? Braised lamb shoulder with charred scallion, garlic, and spinach, paired with a glass of Pierce Ranch Grenache from Leojami Wines in nearby Monterey County.

Insider Tips

All stays include complimentary continental breakfast (including a fruit plate, fresh pastries, and two eggs served any style) at Aubergine. Call ahead to have the meal delivered to your room.
