Lesser known but no less worthy, the fest has got former mayor Clint Eastwood weighing in on his namesake award, lectures and workshops, and VIP cocktail parties. There’s also a seaside cache no big city fest can touch with a Saturday night movie on the beach, the Filmmakers Beach Bash (think boatloads of Monterey County wine) and the elegant, pooch-tastic Cypress Inn.
Just two blocks from Carmel Beach, the 44-room landmark inn makes especially good sense during the Carmel Art and Film Fest not only for its vintage Hollywood beauty but also because of its co-owner, legendary cinema star Doris Day. Belonging to a collection of Carmel Boutique Inns and around since 1929, Cypress Inn is hodgepodge of charm and style with a Mediterranean vibe, in-room fireplaces, vaulted ceilings and that magically compact grandeur only seen in Carmel-By-The-Sea. You’ll get this right away on site of the hotel’s elevated, vintage entrance, something that always grabs us from the start.
