My wife and I just spent 4 nights at The Santa Barbara, Ca. Hyatt and had a wonderful time. The location was great, the room we had was most comfortable and quiet. Coffee in the lobby was there in the morning and staff were all as helpful as would be expected.

Right across the street from the beach, great location. Ask for a room with a balcony, it made a huge difference for us. They were able to check us in early, which was super helpful. The Pool is decent, but could use more frequent bar service for food/drinks.

Great location just across the street from the beach. Breakfast buffet was great, as was the dinner we had in their restaurant. Room facing the backstreet which was slightly noisy but ok. No free wifi and Valet only which we thought should've been included.

They have done a great job with the renovation project with the Hyatt Santa Barbara. It is directly across the street from East Beach. Some of the rooms have great views...most are just ok. It is in a pretty good location, but the street in front of it is quite busy. There was street noise morning & night. The staff... More

Wonderful hotel in beautiful spot. Wish I could live there! Looking over the Pacific from our room, the pool, the hot tub, the fire pit - pure relaxation. Great place to escape. A bit of a walk to town. We kept going and going. Taxied home.

Just stayed one night (thankfully) Valet parking $36. We were given a room in the annex across the road which meant that any one wishing to use the pool, restaurant or simply obtain ice has to cross over the road to the main hotel. We were woken early in the morning by roofing work taking place about 10 feet from... More

Staff, facilities and location great. Parking on site is awkward with valet only. Getting in and out of your vehicle with valet is time consuming and annoying. Of course you may park on the street with no cost if you can find a spot.

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize you found our parking to be awkward due to limited space we are only able to offer valet parking – As you mention there are other options and we are always happy to help our guests find alternative places to park. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Many Thanks, Emma S... More

The hotel has great, unobstructed ocean views. Excellent responsive staff. The rooms are cheap & mediocre. It is a tacky Hyatt hotel in a great location across the street from the ocean and the beach. The hotel should be remodeled.

This hotel advertises beautiful pictures but you don't get everything they promote. For example, the pool area has a beautiful outdoor sitting area with couches and a fire pit but it wasn't open at night, which is one of the reasons we chose it. We wanted to have a cocktail there and enjoy the fire on that cool night but... More

This is a mediocre hotel; don't expect Hyatt standards. The staff were not very friendly and they became annoyed when we decided to park on the street (for free) instead of paying the extortionate hotel parking fee. Wi-fi was not also free; this was the only hotel we stayed during our California road trip that charged for wi-fi access. We... More
