As the fires were raging in Ojai, a few friends and I drove to Santa Barbara for safety. We stayed in this classy hotel I did not know before; it's conveniently located, great selection of restaurants within one block, never had to move the car from the parking lot to find a great place to eat. Room and bathroom were nicely appointed and impeccably clean, which is a big deal for this traveler. Their breakfast is served in the downstairs lobby, with the usual selections you'd expect in a nice hotel; noteworthy: exceptional croissants and other fresh pastries!
The hotel offered us a discount as a courtesy due to our evacuating Ojai under duress. Very considerate of them, and much appreciated by all in our group. I stayed five days. The service was attentive without exception, from the staff to the parking attendants. I enjoyed their vintage elevator, reminded me of old hotels in Europe. Slow, but a real trip in time. I would go again and recommend it to friends.
