Try to book 2nd or 3rd floor with Ocean View, rates are fabulous in low season. Best bet for parking is finding a spot on the street, if you can you can save on Valet. You really do not need to have the Valet park your car unless you have tons of luggage really, really need to have someone park... More

This is a hotel is somewhat of a mixed bag. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant was excellent, and the location of hotel itself is good. On the other hand, the room furnishings were very tired and in need of replacement. The lobby is nicely furnished so it is clear that they do have... More

We stayed one night at the Hyatt Santa Barbara. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Our room had a very nice view of the ocean and the mountains. The bed was so comfortable. We would go back again.

Fabulous hotel. Excellent service. We were driving down the coast and called this hotel that day. Being out of season they gave us a great price and we got a corner room overlooking the water. They immediately recognized I had the Hyatt Gold passport account and knew my preferences. It's in a quiet area of town. I highly recommended as... More

Guests need to understand that this is an older hotel. That means the things we expect in the modern age may not be available (no central air or heating; spotty wifi). Old hotels are fine, but this one has no old-world charm. Price is fair and commeasurate with what you will get.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share this review with us. You are correct that this is indeed an older hotel with the main building being built in 1931, it is one of the earliest landmarks on the Santa Barbara coastline. I am sorry that you did not experience any old world charm as we strive to... More

We stayed at the Hyatt Santa Barbara for just one night, 12/1/14, while visiting UCSB. Had to book last minute, and took advantage of advertised 'last minute discount rate'. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was nice... if it helps your budget to keep the overnight cost close to the advertised 'last minute rate', park off the... More

I highly recommend staying at the Hyatt SB. It's a wonderful facility and right across the street from the beach. Close to all t he fun happening in SB and a truly beautiful hotel. We stayed in an ocean view room and loved our experience. Would go back and stay there in a heart beat .

The hotel is directly across from East Beach with beautiful views. The service was okay with no towels at the pool during three out of four visits and a twenty minute wait after a call to the front desk during one of those occasions that resulted in no towels. Our rooms were adjacent to the stairs and a bit noisy.

We stayed at the hotel, got an early check in and relaxed. Staff was awesome as well was the view from our room. The mattress could have been better, it felt like I was sleeping in a hole. But the rest of our stay was prefect. We will stay here again.
