We stayed in Carmel for a wedding and wanted to book a hotel for one-night, which is pretty difficult to do over Memorial Day weekend. This was one of few hotels that didn't require a 2 night minimum.
Overall, we were blown away by the customer service and attention to detail. Water was free (that's right, for once we didn't get charged to drink water in our room). Valet service was also included in the price. And we had a complimentary breakfast the next morning -- delivered to our room no less! The breakfast was delicious - eggs, toast and croissant, fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. Their version of a fruit bowl was NOT your typical grapes and melons, but they included strawberries, blueberries and apricots.
The most surprising part of the stay was when we got back in our car to drive home, and the valet had put 2 fresh bottled waters in the car. I mean, it was just great all around. Would highly recommend this hotel. While it's a bit pricey, it's definitely worth it in the end!
