4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

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.

Pricey but worth the splurge...I like the Buddhas hanging around in the outdoor garden - free breakfast was nice enough and staff super-friendly. loved the fireplace and the jet-spa tub

Loved this hotel.
Rooms are beautifully well decorated. No noise at all during the night!
They left chocolate strawberries for us inside our room. Breakfast is delicious!

My adult daughter and I were surprised at the room and the level of comfort it offered. In a quiet area, yet central, it was only a five to ten minute walk to the shops, beach or the many cafes and restaurants. We never used the car over the three days we stayed at Tradewinds. The complimentary nuts and candy (local treats) were a nice touch as well as being fresh and delicious. Continental breakfast was included in our tarriff. We were disappointed at first to learn that Tradewinds did not have its own restaurant but it soon became apparant that with such a huge range of local eateries close by it was not a negative.
