Equicor Tempo Hotel, Carmel

Located in a redevelopment of Carmel’s Clay Terrace lifestyle shopping venue, the Tempo by Hilton at Clay Terrace will invite overnight guests to the mixed-use development and provide distinctiveness and vibrancy to the area with its 150 guest rooms and featured roof bar amenity.    The one-acre site, anchoring the terminus of Clay Terrace’s primary intersection, will be complimented by an entertainment venue, multi-family residential, office and food service uses.  Parking will be provided as part of the integrated center.

The guest rooms will be disposed over five stories and include an optimal mix of double queens and kings, with the local market driving toward a bias for more double queens as well as hospitality and accessibility accommodations.  The first floor will include lobby, lounge, and back of house support functions. Atop the typical guest floors that house approximately 40 guest rooms each, the top floor will feature an amenity roof bar, outdoor patio/deck, fitness center and hospitality suites along with guest rooms.  Elevator and stair circulation will be provided separately for the hotel guests and roof bar.

The exterior architecture will follow the spirit of the planned unit development, local context and brand identify to create a modern, timeless presence.  The brick and paneled walls house large windows and integrated mechanical detailing.  The roof, shaped to promote natural ventilation for the open-air bar environment, provides a signature silhouette from the adjacent streets.
