Why We Love It

  • With a Zen theme and meditation garden, this 28-room hotel is best suited for couples or those seeking peace and quiet
  • The hotel is three blocks from shops and restaurants along Ocean Avenue; walk to the beach in 15 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 buffet breakfast of pastries, bagels, fresh cut fruit and yogurt is served each morning, giving the inn a B&B feel

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, a fire pit, a small waterfall and even a meditation garden in which 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 high-end 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 buffet breakfast, which can be delivered in-room if desired. The hotel lacks an on-site spa or fitness center, but there is a massage team available for in-room massages with advanced booking.

With a prime location in downtown Carmel, the hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the dog-friendly Carmel Beach and about a 15-minute drive from the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium. There are also many walking, running and hiking trails within miles of the hotel.

Office staff was EXCELLENT. Recommendations for dining were perfect. We were celebrating our anniversary. We were given an orchid when we got to our upgraded room and in the room were chocolate covered strawberries & a sweet note of congratulation.

I have bought travelzoo voucher 3 times prior for this hotel and the last time stayed in room upstairs with partial oceanview, several treats in room(choc covered strawberries, mixed nuts, fruit chews)...very nice. I bought voucher for my daughter's anniversary bc I wanted her to enjoy what I had. Upon making reservation I asked for the room I had stayed in, this was several months in advance. When she arrived they told her "travelzoo purchasers only stay on lower floor", the person told her I did not stay in the room I had. They were given a room on the bottom floor...but the main issue was that it seemed if you came with Travelzoo voucher you were treated second rate. If there are only a bank of rooms for travelzoo voucher it should be stated and it would have be kind to let me know she would get the room I asked for before she arrived. Also there is no consistency with in room treats...they were given strawberries, nothing else. Ended up people above them that were noisy which is why I appreciated being on the top floor on my last visit. The hotel is nice but I will probably not purchase Travelzoo voucher if I am treated less then other patrons. thank you

Chocolate covered strawberries, water fountains in our room with zen music playing. Fresh cookies when we checked in. French bakery goodies in the morning. Water fountains throughout the property. We used the fire pits in the evening, with bubbling fountains all around us and tiki torches lit all around us. This place was fantastic!

Every person we spoke to here wanted to get us something or give us some service. Kindness flowed so beautifully. This place is a gem.
