Tickle Pink Inn
Carmel, CA

You could say Tickle Pink enjoys a sweet spot — a ticklish spot? — as it captivates guests with the almost-stupid splendor of the Big Sur coast, while still on the cusp of Carmel. The iconic spot with the return rate to prove its popularity has been around for 60 years, piling up awards for hospitality that starts with a welcoming bottle of chilled champagne paired with a (yes) pink rose. (Many won’t immediately notice because they’re hypnotized by the view.) This place earns slots on the likes of Travel+Leisure’s “Top 500 Hotels in the World” for a reason. Make that many reasons.
