Clint Eastwood served as mayor of this city from 1986 to 1988. But that´s not the main reason Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of the most popular destinations in California. It is known as an “artists and poets village” and its unique character, keeping its authenticity as “a village in a forest overlooking a sand beach”. Against this background, changes in the townscape are always tricky, but this year there will be an extensive renovation in Carmel.

Some of its most historic hotels and a major theatre within the town are updating their properties. The reinvestment will bring beloved businesses to life with premium additions and experiences.

The Carmel-by-the-Sea renovations include:

  • The Hotel Stilwell has been renovated for months and will finally debut in the Summer of 2023. Formerly known as Carmel Lodge, the hotel will add new heating systems and air conditioning for guest comfort. The hotel will also be receiving custom stonework, stucco, balconies, outdoor patio spaces, fountains, outdoor electric heaters and firepits.
  • La Playa Hotel has 75 newly restored rooms within the historic hotel. It also has renovated public spaces and furnishings.
  • Carmel Beach Hotel, formerly known as the Colonial Inn, is undergoing a complete renovation. Founded in 1925, the hotel sits in the heart of Carmel’s “Golden Rectangle” residential neighbourhood. As one of the closest hotels to the ocean, the modernised lodging option will provide an elevated guest experience for visitors to Carmel.
  • The Golden Bough theatre will enhance its audience experience in 2023 with new stadium seating, a revolving stage, gallery viewing, restrooms, concession areas and increased accessibility for those with disabilities.

“Seeing Carmel's reinvestment into the destination is a great reminder of this village's popularity as a preferred vacation destination,” said Amy Herzog, Executive Director of Visit Carmel.
