L'Auberge is a lovely oasis in the middle of Carmel. The hotel is small, only 20-ish rooms. We had the Queen with a Japanese soaking tub. The room is much smaller than I usually get, but the ambience of the hotel more than made up for the room size. It is pricey, but again, I felt well worth it. The bed was superbly comfortable. The bathroom was lovely, with radiant heated floors. The breakfast was lovely. The courtyard is wonderful. Literally felt pampered, the staff is that exceptional. We could have stayed much longer!
