L'Auberge Carmel, Carmel

L'Auberge Carmel is a popular Carmel hotel dating to 1929. It was commissioned by Allen Knight, one of the best known residents in Carmel's early day. Knight initially wanted to create a Bohemian styled residential apartment building similar to what he saw during his travels in Prague. Knight worked with the noted San Francisco architect Albert Far who was also known as the architect of “Glen Allyn”, the first home of Jack London in Sonoma County. The resulted three story wood frame and stucco building has been a highlight in Carmel's architectural landscape since its inception.

Visitors enjoy the hotel's Old World style, as well as the antique furniture and decor. The hotel is a great sight to see as well as a cozy place to stay. One of its main attractions is Aubergine, a celebrated restaurant that boasts Mediterranean-style cuisine and an eight-course tasting menu. The wine cellar boasts 2,500 varieties, featuring wines from Monterey County and around the world. The restaurant staff can recommend pairings course-by-course to help you get the best wines.

Visitors will enjoy the landscaping used for the courtyard. This area provides an excellent place to enjoy Carmel's fantastic weather. Regardless of whether you're stopping to enjoy a meal at the restaurant, enjoying the architecture, or both, you'll find this hotel worth your time.
