Why We Love This Hotel

  • 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 — the beach is a 15-minute walk
  • 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.

Three nights in lovely Carmel. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the center of town with easy access to wonderful restaurants and shopping. Lovely place to stay. We'll be back.

My husband and I went for on a weekend getaway to Carmel. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. And the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was included and delicious! We hope to return soon!

Attractive landscaping.

Although the room was attractive, it was just above the trash cans, and the collection woke us at 6:30 am on Tuesday morning. They could have put us in a different room.
