Hotel Carmel, Carmel-by-the-Sea

January 11, 2019

We drove through Big Sur in the rain and arrived in Carmel on Christmas' Eve. My first impression of Hotel Carmel when we pulled up was how incredibly charming it was with its black and white aesthetic and greenery everywhere. Yes, it was cold and rainy (we were also starving) but Hotel Carmel kept things cozy by greeting us with a beautiful cheese plate and wine which we enjoyed on our balcony. In the morning, we sipped coffee and juices and loved the bagel bar (the pesto and bacon cream cheese were sooo delicious) in the lobby which was absolutely adorable. After spending a long day exploring Monterey and Carmel, we had dinner at the hotel's restaurant Brophy's Tavern on Christmas. For drinks, I had the Smoky Rita while Mark had the Hotty Scotty which I couldn't stop stealing sips of! Orange spice tea, honey, lemon, fireball whisky and bitters... Yum! We also had the steak salad and fish and chips. We had such a lovely stay at Hotel Carmel, will definitely be back soon! Oh did I also mention it is walking distance to downtown (the main street of Carmel) and the beach? So convenient!
