Great location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2014

Great location we were able to walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. Beautiful rooftop pool with fireplace, hot tub and views of Santa Barbara. When we arrived we were given a glass of wine and a complimentary wine hour was every evening. The Spanish theme was evident in the decor and our room.

Our room was on the first floor overlooking the hotel entry. We heard some noisy traffic during the night. Our room was at the end of the hall, very close to two other rooms and we heard doors slamming throughout the night. When we arrived in our room there were tools in front of the T-V, we soon learned that the T-V and phones didn't work. A repairman came up and fixed the T-V and phone, but the T-V didn't turn off; we had to move heavy furniture and unplug it.

Valet was very helpful, he was knowledgeable and always pointed us in the right direction.

Unique Quality: Spanish charm and decor in a great location.

Best location with a rooftop

We had a fantastic time staying at the Canary Hotel in Downtown, Santa Barbara. It's located in the heart of downtown, just steps away from everything you need. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This hotel has a roof top area with a pool and hot tub and a fire pit area to lounge around when it's a bit chilly.
The beds we sure comfortable and the decor is beautiful.

Unique Quality: They offer complimentary coffee and tee in the mornings, and a complimentary wine tasting everyday from 5 to 6 pm. Can it get any better than free wine?

Fantastic SB Hotel

This hotel certainly lived up to it's "Kimpton" standards, which keeping withing the traditional Spanish vibe of Santa Barbara. Everything was clean, lovely, staff was very attentive and helpful, and wine hour is always a plus (everyday from 5-6, wine is served in the lobby!). Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 3, but they checked our bags and being so close to State street, we decided to walk around a bit. When we came back to finally check in, they had upgraded our room for being so patient. Nice touch and a great start to a getaway. The rooftop pool area was the perfect quiet lounge (and would be a great party spot). We took full advantage of having "room service" deliver us lunch while we lounged one day.

The only negative I can think of was, there was a strange smell to the tap water in the bathroom. Otherwise, our stay here couldn't have been more perfect. Highly recommended.

Unique Quality: The rooftop terrace, which has a pool, hot tub and fireplace was a nice touch. You have fantastic views of the city & mountains from up there.

Being a block away from State St meant you were super close to get just about anywhere in the city, but it was just off the path enough to be very quite. Best of both worlds.

Directions: Just North of Paseo Nuevo.
