My family booked two adjoining rooms for a week's reunion with my grandson who is 18 months. The hotel staff met all our advance requests, including for an ocean view, fridge and microwave. Roomwas spacious and quiet with a nice balcony where two could sit. Hotel Bar food and drink was better than the actual restaurant. Beach directly across the...

Room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Enjoyed the ocean view and listening to the waves throughout the night. Staff is friendly and courteous. Restaurant on site has alright food, expensive for limited menu and work short on staff. Would definitely stay again though, just not eat at restaurant on site...plenty of other fabulous restaurants in Santa Barbara.

At the Eastern end of the beach, this is a comfortable and well maintained place. Rooms were large and clean, and are spread across three separate buildings. Great ocean views and friendly staff. Onsite parking was a steep extra cost but there is plenty of street parking nearby (perhaps this charge is a summer thing when the town is busier).

I enjoyed my stay at Hyatt Centric. The staff is very accommodating and I love the raffle they do at check in for their Diamond members! Some of the equipment in the gym could be updated but the rooms and locations are great.

Rooms are VERY dated. Not what you would expect from a 4 star Hyatt. Hotel is a historical building and I get that they're trying to keep it a vintage feel, but that should have nothing to do with the rooms. Beds are somewhat comfortable, but the rest of the furniture and decor makes you feel like you're in a...

Hello and thank you for sharing your experience. We are delighted to hear that you received great service from our chef, this is fantastic!

No hot water in the room - called three times over three days. Very poor customer service. I'll find another hotel next time. I usually stay at least three to four times a year but won't stay here again. Hot water is essential.
