U.S. News Review
Perfectly situated in the heart of Carmel, Calif., and just a 15-minute walk to Carmel Beach, L'Auberge Carmel, charms guests with its intimate luxury. With only 20 rooms, this Relais & Châteaux property appeals to travelers looking for an experience more akin to that provided by a B&B without sacrificing the amenities — like in-room spa services and the gourmet California cuisine served at Aubergine — found at a deluxe hotel. Guest rooms here all feature unique decor, but no matter which accommodation you occupy, you'll be treated to down bedding, soaking tubs and iPod docking stations. Previous visitors rave about the hotel's European influence, though some mention a few negative run-ins with customer service.How we rank hotels
