I was reading many reviews before booking, naturally, and I came across a few that talked about young couples feeling unwanted. My wife and I are both 25 and we travel to many of the nicer hotels like yours, and that's always something we fear and fight with, but luckily we were greeted and treated with the utmost respect and...

A low profile luxury hotel in the heart of the city. Charming property, carefully decorated, clean, spacious and very comfortable accommodation. The intimate atmosphere is guaranteed by the friendly and impeccable staff (Tim and Luciano: many thanks). I really can not imagine a better option whem visiting Santa Barbara and region.

This hotel is over priced for what it is. Rooms are fine but not in the league of what they charge and hotel amenities are minimal. Breakfast baked goods stale, not much selection. Wifi didn't work very well.

This is the place felt historic and luxurious. Very quiet, comfortable beds and pillows, great amenities and wonderful shower! The Spanish tile and architectural accents make it feel warm and welcoming and not like any chain hotel. Staff are awesome!

We chose this hotel because of its favorable reviewer ratings and location near the Santa Barbara courthouse. We had only the morning of our departure to see the courthouse, an impressive building with a view of the area from the lookout tower, definitely worth a visit. It's an easy 3-block walk. Many good restaurants are in walking distance as well....
