Why We Love It

  • With an Asian/Zen theme and meditation garden, this 28-room hotel is best suited for couples or those seeking peace and quiet
  • The hotel is four blocks from shops and restaurants along Ocean Avenue; walk to the beach in 20 minutes
  • For a small inn, the rooms are quite plush with goose-down feather beds and high-end furniture (featured in Architectural Digest)
  • A free breakfast buffet of pastries, bagels and yogurt is served each morning, giving the inn a B&B feel

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Tucked away on a downtown side street, Tradewinds Carmel provides a Zen-like oasis, with its Asian-influenced design and Pacific Ocean breezes.

Featured in Architectural Digest for its East-meets-West décor, the property is built around a central courtyard, dotted with birds of paradise trees, a fire pit, a small waterfall and even a meditation garden to unwind.

The Asian theme extends into each of the 28 rooms, which are adorned with kimono robes, bamboo details and orchids, as well as luxuries like Frette linens, silk pillows and organic bath products. In-room Wi-Fi is complimentary. Like most hotels in the area, rooms do not have air conditioning, so sleeping with the windows open is usually the way to go.

Take advantage of the complimentary breakfast buffet, which can be delivered in-room if desired. The hotel lacks an on-site spa or fitness center, but its central location makes it easy to get to prime attractions. 

It is just a 10-minute walk from downtown Carmel and about a 20-minute walk from Carmel beaches. The famed Monterey Bay Aquarium is a 15-minute drive away.
