We spent the last night of our honeymoon at the Highlands Inn ...largely because I remembered it as the most romantic place in the world from a visit about 15 years ago. Not much has changed, but actually, plenty has changed. It's a Hyatt now, and apparently a time share property. We were able to secure an ocean view room with fireplace ... view was somewhat obscured by trees and the road was right below us, but we were still happy. No suites (we remembered the great tub) were available for this Friday night stay, too bad. Our stay was fine, but pricey at well over $400 for the night. Room decor is OK, somewhat dated ... and the bathroom is very small. Woodburning fireplace was a real plus on a rainy afternoon/evening. Raphael our bellman was fabulous. Here's what really didn't work for us: the lady selling timeshare presentations was really, really annoying during the afternoon nap. We really, really did not need or want a timeshare presentation in our very limited, very expensive one night stay in this hotel. Not sure I could have been more clear with reservations, checkin and everyone concerned that this was our honeymoon ... no one seemed to care or acknowledge in any way. Next time in Carmel, I guess we'll explore other options.
