This hotel borders the town of Monticeto. It is made up of villas and a hotel. It is a very peaceful site. I do like that they allow pets. We brought our cat and they even provided a litter box. There also were food bowls and i understand dogs get their own beds. The guest experience is as papering as...

The Biltmore in Santa Barbara sits beachfront in a beautiful variegated and mature tropical garden. Flowers blooming everywhere on the manicured grounds and courtyards. The old Spanish architecture is charming and the subtle updated rooms and cottages are stylish, offer personal balcony and private porches amongst the trees, vines and bushes. Food is excellent, staff is attentive and very friendly....

We recently had a large group convention at this beautiful resort. The grounds are spectacular. The rooms are somewhat dated, but given the Ranch style traditional theme, it was nevertheless gorgeous. The prices are very expensive. Everything was classic Four Seasons exceptional standards with the exception of the Bella Vista Bar area off of the lobby. TWICE we went in...

The hotel and especially the grounds were beautiful. The service was top notch. The only disappointment we had was dinner in the dining room. We went with Italian food knowing that the chief was Italian and it was fresh pasta. It was shockingly bad. The wine by the glass is very limited and not great. Our final pm we went...

We've been here for two business conferences. Great place for a conference. Nice business facilities, and the rooms are really nice, with high ceilings in the second floor rooms; and spacious bathrooms with beautiful tile, walk-in shower and separate bath tub. Huge flat screen TV. Wifi included. Two nice pool facilities, one by the ocean with a 50s style ambiance,...

The best in Santa Barbara but not the best Four Seasons. The lobby is both visually beautiful and perfect for relaxing with a cocktail after dinner. Our room was on the 1st floor, very large with WIC and nice bath with L'Occtiane products, cold a/c, 3 huge windows and comfy bed. We had spa appointments for mani/pedi's which were good....

My husband and I spent a long weekend here & it was beautiful. The rooms & the property are absolutely exquisite. So much character in this classic hotel it's hard to put into words. We had a room with a balcony over looking the pool, with lots of palms & foliage around us. The service around the pool was excellent....

One of the best hotels on the planet; well and the universe as far as I know. Classy and elegant yet relaxed. Staff was impeccable and although I looked, I could not find any flaw with housekeeping or grounds keeping! A bucket list stay for anyone who's passion is travel. Hans L

My wife and I had a wonderful night at the Biltmore. The hotel is one of the most beautiful places in California. The staff was generous and attentive. They did all sorts of little things to make our stay extraordinary. We stayed in one of the cottages. If you have the chance to stay in a cottage please do it!...
