“Honeymoon in Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

My wife and I had never been to Carmel for a vacation, and thought that this would be a nice town to spend our week-long honeymoon. Thanks to Tradewinds, it was perfect. The first indication that this was a great hotel was their packages. When we were researching different places to stay in Carmel, Tradewinds had an amazing package that appealed to both of us. In addition to finding the right package, when we got there, the amenities exceeded our expectations. There was the box of chocolates, the chocolate-covered strawberries, a kimono for each of us, a fireplace, a balcony, and the Asian-theme was subtle yet we could tell there was definite time and energy spent on making it a balance of authenticity and comfort for their guests. The front desk was always accommodating (with as many questions and requests we had, they were always patient and happy to help). From recommending great restaurants to scheduling the in-room massage session (part of our package) the front desk attendants were wonderful individuals that did everything they could to make our stay pleasant. We are definitely keeping them at the top of our list of places to stay whenever we visit Carmel.

Room Tip: Be sure to speak with the front desk people often.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Room and bath room were very well done. Location is on a quiet street within walking distance of downtown for shopping and dining Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is included but it is pastries, fruit, cereal, etc only.
No resteraunt on site (but as I said earlier, plenty within easy walking distance.

Only negative thing I can say is that we could always hear the people oin the room above us walking around and sometimes could here voices from the room next door.

Overall we enjoyed it would recommend it to our friends

A charming and quiet place to relax. It is close to the main centre of town, an easy walk down the hill to the centre of town, so so going back up. A beautiful room and the staff was very friendly and very informative of where to go and what to do.
The breakfast was average - breads, cereals and fruits..
This was just perfect, we wanted to get away from the traffic and "busy" streets.

The hotel and staff were excellent. We were close to everything, but on a quiet street. Everyone at the hotel was really helpful. We loved our room and enjoyed the gardens and firepit. It was the perfect place to get some much needed rest and relaxation. We loved the fact that their cat, Sweetie, greeted us in the same warm and friendly manner that their staff accorded us. Rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortabe. The breakfast was perfect. I would definitely return to this spot.

Room Tip: We upgraded to the ocean view king. Good plan.

It was one of those perfect overnights.........We had one night before heading to the airport in San Francisco and choose Tradwinds in Carmel. The room decor was relaxing and well appointed. Exceptional bed, the best room darkening drapes ever, delightful fireplace and spacious bath. Wish we could have stayed longer.

I had heard about the Tradewinds and headed there seeking tranquility and rest. I was delighted to find lush towering tropical gardens, gently flowing fountains, a meditation garden, and a room that met my very high standards of cleanliness and comfort.. I always brace myself for unsavory sights and smells when I open the door of a hotel room. At the Tradewinds, the room was already alive; soft music and the gentle sound of a tranquility fountain were wafting through the air. And the air was odor free much to my delight.
The bed was comfortable, the neighborhood quiet (you could hear a pin drop outside on the street), and the fire in the fireplace was heavenly after a chilly day on the coast.
I liked the Aveda bath products, the chocolate covered strawberries on the nightstand, the robes made from beautiful oriental fabric, and the doors to the balcony which we opened to bring in the ocean air.
The perfect cleanliness aspect was something I really appreciated. I kept an eye out for a disturbing grunge sighting, but found not a trace.
We got a spray of orchids upon checking in. That set the tone for a warm and luxurious respite. I will return.
