As many of you know I attended a social media conference just over a week ago in Los Angeles. Since this was my first time visiting the area, I decided to arrive 2 days early and check out the Santa Monica Beach area with my friend Nicole Rosen aka Finance Diva, (Photo Credit Supplier for following images). In searching weeks before arriving in the area, I was on the hunt for a boutique hotel that was inviting and made me feel at home.
I found that home away from home and it was Hotel Carmel, located just 1.5 blocks from the Santa Monica Beach, Pier and Pacific Park.
Once arriving at Hotel Carmel, we were greeted by very welcoming valet staff that took our bags and lead us into the beautiful, warm, rich feeling lobby where the front desk staff made us feel at home. Not to mention, the exquisite decor found throughout.
After checking in, hotel staff kindly lead us to our room. Upon walking into our room, we were amazed at the layout and the beautiful style of wooden furnishings. The room came complete with a separate living and bedroom with work desk and flat screen TV on each wall.
After waking up the next morning from experiencing our room, we felt so refreshed and like we had never left home. For the duration of our stay, we received constant attention from all the hotel staff ensuring our stay was the best ever. Nicole and I thank you Hotel Carmel and your staff for a superb hotel experience. The location of the hotel was in the perfect location as we were able to walk 1 block to Third Street Promenade to enjoy shopping, Starbucks coffee and experience Santa Monica Beach at it’s finest. Evidence is clearly shown that the hotel owners take pride in making everyone’s visit a special and memorable one.
