From the second we arrived the staff were just lovely. They offered us a glass of wine on checkin. The foyer had such a nice feel to it with lovely colours and furnishings I would have been happy to stay there! Our room was gorgeous - lovely furniture and colours, lots of space, huge bathroom, wonderful bed linen. The pool...

Arrived to a friendly reception team who immediately asked if we would like a glass of wine - having just driven from Monterey this was most welcome after a day of beautiful views and experiences! Room was lovely with 4 poster bed and bathroom with separate shower and bath. Felt homely but contemporary. The hotel was larger than I expected...

What a spectacular place! Awesome staff and prefect location! Don't forget to check out the great rooftop pool! We spent 4 days in Santa Barbara and Canary made it special! We came into Santa Barbara 2 days early and found our place at the Canary. Quick walk to state street and prefect place to find plenty to do and eat.

Conveniently located downtown. The Canary is a Kimpton property and at the high end of Kimpton's portfolio. Rooms are very well furnished, luxurious, and spacious. Staff was extremely friendly. If choosing among local Kimptons, this is vastly better than the Goodland, Kimpton's other area hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel in the middle of a shopping heaven - also known as State Street. The staff are wonderful, helpful and have such positive attitudes. We stayed in a corner room with a small balcony and really felt special. It was expensive but it well worth the money!

This is a fantastic hotel. I recently stayed with my two children (boy aged 13 and a girl aged 10) and had a lovely time. I booked it as the beach part of a longer road trip. Before we checked in, the front desk emailed to see what sort of things the kids liked - and there were corresponding gifts...
