We were really expecting the quality of a Relais Chateau hotel and were disappointed. First off, please hire friendlier people..the young girl was quite snotty upon check in and check out. The dinning room was sparse and very unattractive. Who did their decorating?? It does not go with the character of the hotel. And the breakfast was not hot and bread was bland. And when you are spending over five hundred dollars per night I expect NOT to have a plastic toilet seat and a sink that is slow to drain. They had ugly plastic igloo coolers on the steps outside the rooms, too. The beds were very nice and the linen excellent. In the first room upon calling the staff for help, the television never worked. That was not that big of a deal. We just think that this hotel should not be awarded a Relais Chateau status because it falls way short of others we have stayed at. Check out The Post Hotel in Lake Louise...now that is a great Relais Chateau hotel! The paintings in the room were cheesy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1929, the European-style luxury hotel is located just four blocks from famous Carmel Beach and an easy stroll to the village's numerous art galleries, shops and restaurants. Major renovations have transformed the hotel's 20 guest rooms, entrance and landscaped courtyard into a romantic Carmel setting. Luxuriously romantic, the Carmel hotel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships—the perfect Carmel escape getaway. The interior decor of guest rooms is rich and pleasing, warm jewel tones accent the quaint charm of the architecture. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens, enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating, some with soaking tubs. It is one of Carmel’s few full service luxury hotels offering valet parking, room service and highly personalized guest services. The highlight of L'Auberge Carmel is its intimate 12-table restaurant, Aubergine, featuring a 4500-bottle wine cellar. It is the passion of Executive Chef Justin Cogley. All accommodations include a sumptuous continental breakfast. ... more less
