Our room was spacious, well appointed, clean and ridiculously comfortable. Of the two windows we had, one had a partial view over State Street to the Mountains, the other overlooked the quiet side-street that runs across State Street. The hotel is beyond charming, mixing new appliances and modern touches with the older Spanish influenced decor. It screams "Santa Barbara" at you. It's in a perfect spot on State Street with everything you could want within easy walking distance.
There's Valet parking, and due to the small onsite car park, vehicles are moved just across the street to the "offsite parking" when staying for more than the one night. We needed our car once over our 3 night stay and the Valet was very quick to retrieve it. On the morning of check-out the car had already been brought over to the onsite car park.
All the staff we spoke to were courteous and more than happy to help with anything we needed.
This will definitely be our first choice Santa Barbara Hotel when we come back.More
