It’s hard to know where to start. We checked in about 5 hours ago for a 3 night stay. When we arrived at valet, Justus arrived to offer help unloading our car, which we gladly accepted. As I went inside to attempt check in (at 1:30pm, which is admittedly early), Justus decided to let my wife unload every bag herself... More

This was my first stay in Santa Barbara. The Hyatt is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy this beautiful city. The views of the ocean are spectacular and the staff are friendly and helpful. An A+ hotel

Beautiful hotel in pristine setting, Great service in general. I had two negative experiences with food service. The first with a $34 Cobb Salad that looked like a 3 year old made it (I knew it would be expensive, but I thought it would be really good). In the restaurant the next morning they asked if I wanted coffee and... More

In spite of booking and PREPAYMENT had been made several weeks in advance - all rooms were sold out. Other guests arriving after me got the same information. To call it a 4 star hotel is an exageration

This was an overnight stop on our way to Big Sur. The ocean view room was fantastic!! Bedding was plush and so comfortable as were the bath robes. Located conveniently for exploring State Street shops and restaurants. Really enjoyed the close-by Reagan Ranch Museum too! Service staff was very professional, yet friendly and courteous. Only negatives are the fee for... More

Waking up across from our ocean view room every day was perfect for our wedding stay and honeymoon. The staff were lovely and sent a tray of goodies to our room when they found out we were getting married - a really nice and unexpected treat. In fact the service from all the staff across the hotel was excellent. The... More

Very disappointed in this experience. Given it was a Hyatt, I expected luxury but instead got mediocracy. The towels are so old they are threadbear and hard. The bed had a no pillow top other than a very old polyster batting matress pad that was lumpy and hard. Try to get an appointment at the spa and was laughed out,... More

My wife and I booked a room, using points, for a wedding. Even though this was chosen by the family, we actually tried to stay elsewhere but all rooms were booked. Hyatt is usually our top choice in any vacation venue. This location had its good and bad. Let's clear the bad out of the way first. We used points... More

Great location, large patios, fantastic ocean view, very romantic... close to the Zoo! The staff was very helpful in fact one of the bell persons went to the front desk to pick up our room key because we decided to change rooms to get an ocean view....which was the best decision we could have made because the view was perfect...

Staff was very polite and caring, we felt welcomed like a VIP as soon as we stepped into the lobby. Hotel is conveniently located right across to the ocean. It is close to shopping and dinning. The hotel room was clean and the bath robe was soft. I wish there was in-room check-out service, but that is a minor inconvenience,... More

Thank you for leaving us a review. I am pleased we made you feel like a VIP that is the aim! I will certainly pass on your comments regarding an in-room check-out to the director of operations; it certainly is a valid suggestion. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back for a longer stay! Many Thanks,... More
