Travelers' Choice
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. Recent renovations have transformed the hotel's 20 guest rooms , entrance and landscaped courtyard bringin an elegant aesthetic, once again making the hotel the leader in design within Carmel-by-the-Sea, with canopied or tufted beds, original antiques, and custom fabrics. Luxuriously romantic, the Carmel hotel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships—the perfect Carmel escape getaway. It is one of Carmel’s few full service luxury hotels offering valet parking, room service and highly personalized guest services. All accommodations include a sumptuous continental breakfast, wifi, and valet parking. The highlight of L'Auberge Carmel is its intimate 9-table restaurant, Aubergine, featuring a 2500-bottle wine cellar. It is the passion of Executive Chef Justin Cogley.

Had a brief but wonderful stay! We felt safe despite the ongoing pandemic and felt the staff took extra precautions to keep us safe without cutting corners. Service was awesome, very personable without being cloy. Our room was cozy, comfortable and had a lot of character and vintage feel- not your typical standard hotel room which may not be for everyone but for us added to its charm. Location can’t be beat!

I visited L'Auberge Carmel for an overdue business trip, my first since the Covid-19 shutdowns. The staff was prepared with protocols in place and was very accommodating. My room was nice and spacious, very comfortable. The location of this hotel is perfect and most everything you want to do is within walking distance. I will absolutely stay here the next time I'm in town!

From the moment we arrived until we reluctantly departed, L'Auberge Carmel was a lovely experience in being pampered by experts. The rooms are European in style, charming as opposed to stark American hotel modern. All of the expected touches are there. The service is superb. As we were staying several nights, we decided to explore a local restaurant on our first night. When we asked for our car, the staff insisted on driving us in their beautiful limousine and Edgar, the chauffeur, a kind and attentive person, took pleasure in describing the village to us as we were driving. It made the experience even more special. When we were ready to return, he came instantly and took exceptional care of us. The following night, we dined at Aubergine, the Michelin star restaurant at L'Auberge Carmel. Justin Cogley's cuisine is outstanding, as is the pastry from Pastry Chef Yulanda Santos. They have created an exceptional team. The restaurant is an intimate space perfect for a romantic dinner. Everyone on the staff is warm and welcoming, doing everything they can to make your experience perfect. We enthusiastically recommend both L'Auberge Carmel and Aubergine to anyone wishing a memorable escape to a beautiful seaside village.

We spend my birthday weekend there and we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are spacious, super clean with amazing natural light, very comfy bed, bathroom is so cozy (tiles are heated) and a bathtub to die for. The ambiance of the courtyard feels so romantic, relaxed and warm. The breakfast was delicious, the fluffy french toast is the bomb, missing it already. We had the best couples massage in our room. As far as customer service they go above and beyond to make you feel very comfortable and make sure that all your needs are met, a few things to mention, we were driven to and picked up from our restaurant one night which was so nice since we had had some wine, the pastry chef Yolanda made custom delicious sweet treats for my bday, my husband forgot his coat at a restaurant in the area and only remembered when we had left Carmel, Edwin went out of his way to pick it up at the restaurant and arranged for it to be shipped to us. Overall phenomenal customer service. We would highly highly recommend L'Auberge Carmel Katia, Edwin, Dianna, Yolanda and the entire staff were amazing and made our time there truly memorable. Thank you Renida and Mike
