CARMEL, CA–Lark Hotels is excited to announce the recent addition of Tradewinds Carmel to its expanding collection. The 28-room hotel is nestled among the tree-lined streets of Carmel-by-the Sea, California, and offers guests tranquility, beautiful Japanese gardens, and views of the Pacific, all an easy walk to the charming shops and restaurants in the village.
“We’re proud to bring this iconic property into the Lark family and can’t wait for our loyal guests to experience this beautiful California hotel,” said Founder and President, Rob Blood. “Carmel is a great launching point as we look to continue our expansion into secondary and tertiary drive-to markets in California. We see numerous compelling destinations within a two or three hour drive from both San Francisco and Los Angeles.”
“While the industry is in a state of flux due to the toll of Covid-19, our focus remains on providing warm hospitality to our guests while employing industry-leading cleanliness across our portfolio,” Said Lark Hotels CEO, Peter Twachtman. “Because our properties are of a smaller size, we are able to take exceptional care in cleaning and offer less person-to-person contact during stays without sacrificing the experience and connection our teams offer. Tradewinds, in particular, offers an opportunity for contactless stays because every guest room has a private outside entrance.”
“The team at Lark Hotels was quick to adapt to this evolving environment and I am proud to see the hard work has paid off as our business model continues to resonate with owners and developers, which is positioning us for continued growth.” Twachtman added.
