“bad menu swrvice and ambience in the restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

we were there with some friends for a happy hour the week before this hotel w sold to the new chain. they did not have any good brand of alcohol, the ambience was terrible and we ended up ordering beers ( they brought them warm) water (they brought a pellegrino water without asking) and calamari ( small plate, uses and bad oil)
the restaurant donwstairs need an urgent remodel and please get rid of those salt shakers from your grandma house

Just enjoyed a good stay with the Hotel. I strongly suggest requesting a room on the top floor. The hotel needs more soundproofing. If you are a light sleeper then you may be dissappointed. The roof top pool and deck are awesome. Hotel needs to extend weekend hours up on the 6th floor. Security a little over reaching if you are not out by 11 pm. Room service was good but forgot some of our order. Overall great location and staff are very nice!

Room Tip: You must get a corner room on top floor. There is a noise issue with lower level rooms. If you are...

Nice location and very nice property overall. Service was good, as was the food, and it is easy to walk everywhere. Rooftop is great. Highly recommended.

Located in the center of town, this botique hotel offers luxury in a town renowned for over the top beauty. Even though it's hard to compete with the natural surroundings and vibrant town, this hotel provides a memorable experience. A friendly professional reception leads to beautifully appointed rooms. The pool terrace on the roof provides 360 views of the town, ocean and mountains. At sunset, with a fire in the fireplace, it is close to heaven. This place lives up to its five star rating.

What a stunning hotel. Great location, walking distance to some of the best shopping on State Street. Beds are not only extremely comfortable, but beautifully and aesthetically pleasing. One feels completely pampered here. The rooftop pool is exquisite, and a great place to meet for a drink with friends. The view of the city, shore, and mountains from that location makes the world go away. Great staff, and the restaurant is exceptional and trendy without sacrificing quality and class. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony room. What better place to stand on a balcony than Santa Barbara?
