Classic Hotels & Resorts, the hospitality division of Grossman Company Properties, is at it again. Expanding its iconic independent hotel and resort chain, the company will add another listing to its impressive portfolio, in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

What was once The Dolphin Inn is now Hotel Carmel – located at the corner of 4th & San Carlos Street. The doors are expected to open in spring 2016. Hoteliers and potential guests can have a sneak peek at the property online as the website has launched and can anticipate booking accommodations and events in the new year.

Formerly The Dolphin Inn, the beautifully transformed Hotel Carmel is located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, just steps from renowned shops, galleries and restaurants.

Completely refurbished, Hotel Carmel features traditional cottage-style architecture with a modern seaside feel, newly renovated guest rooms and a warm and inviting garden courtyard. The hotel is located just steps away from the boutique chic wine and dine culture of Carmel-by-the-Sea, not to mention the stunning California coastline.

Options among the 27 rooms will include traditional, fireplace or private balcony. Majestic views of the Pacific Ocean are afforded in some.

Other acqusitions and developments made by Classic Hotels & Resorts include the $1.5 million surfer chic Laguna Beach House renovation, and the 75-room La Playa Hotel (also in Carmel-by-the-Sea) – a $3.5 million restoration project, upgrading all rguest rooms, suites and public space.
