While standard rooms are hardly memorable, Townhouse Spa Suites at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands offer an ideal space for enjoying the beautiful California coast.
You can read additional details about the hotel including information on dining, parking, fitness, and other amenities in my full hotel review. This review will focus only on the Townhouse Spa Suite.
First, note that suite upgrades for World of Hyatt Globalist members confirm into the Townhouse Suite, a split-level guest accommodation that includes two full bathrooms and a kitchen.
I think the main reason my family appreciates this hotel so much is because taking a 1.5 year old out to eat twice per day is not at all ideal. With a full kitchen, we buy food at the grocery store (the closest grocery store is Safeway, but there is a also a Trader Joe’s relatively close) and end up cooking a better meal than we’d have in a restaurant. The kitchen comes fully-stocked, with plates, pans, and pots. There’s even spices and dishwasher detergent.
For those who enjoy cooking, like I do, there are few things more enjoyable than preparing a nice meal then enjoying it with a fire in the fireplace and an ocean view outside.
If you need a modern, extremely beautiful room…you’ll have to forget this place. The suite interiors are are more rustic and less elegant. But they are comfortable. Upstairs includes a bathroom with shower, closet, kitchen, and living/dining room.
On a cold night, a roaring fire is such a great thing.
Downstairs, you will find a king bed and large bathroom with jacuzzi tub.
Augustine sleeps upstairs while we sleep downstairs. The arrangement works perfectly for my family. He still sleeps in a crib, but the couch folds out into a double bed.
I like this family-friendly property surrounded by physical beauty. A suite costs an extra 6,000 points/night when available on paid bookings. This is one upgrade that is well worthwhile. If using points, this suite would run 48,000 points/night, which is rather steep.
