Staying at the L’Auberge Carmel is a treat in itself.  A full-service Relais & Châteaux property located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea just blocks from the famed Carmel Beach. Originally built in 1929, the historic hotel is known for its graceful architecture, personalized guest services, European-style and elegance. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens and enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating.

The highlight of the hotel is its award-winning restaurant Aubergine. Executive Chef Justin Cogley, a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef, and Executive Pastry Chef Yulanda Santos prepare skillful, ingredient-driven cuisine that celebrates the bounty of the region.
