“The Grande Dame of Carmel”

Once a luxurious mansion built in 1905 by an artist as a gift to his wife, a member of the Ghirardelli family, for over 100 years La Playa Carmel has been known as the “Grande Dame of Carmel”. Newly restored, this 75-room historic hotel is located just steps from the sands of Carmel Beach and the renowned shops, galleries and restaurants of charming Carmel-by-the-Sea. The cornerstone of one of California’s most prestigious neighborhoods, this landmark features meticulously tended gardens, intimate patios, secluded courtyards and a tranquil terrace swimming pool.

Alleged to be haunted either by the ghost of a family member who drowned in the bay or by one of the original mistresses. It is not known precisely who the ghost is but many claim to see her and feel her presence!

The building is absolutely stunning. They'll lend you a bike, which is super awesome. Comfy beds. Take time to explore the gardens and check out the pool as well-- they're not to be missed. Obviously, it's pretty pricy, but it's so luxurious you might not want to leave anyways :)
