Expect a "postcard-perfect location on Carmel Bay" at this white lodge that hosted the 2010 U.S. Open golf championship. Oceanfront accommodations pair dark-wood furnishings with soft-yellow bedding and balconies that overlook "the hypnotic surf." Club XIX serves a contemporary French menu offering dishes like seared foie gras and roasted Dover sole. The Tap Room draws golfers with its "clubhouse vibe" and memorabilia.
