We are diamond members of the Hyatt chain. We are used to beautiful rooms and resorts. Hyatt took over this hotel from another hotel. They have tried to make it into Hyatt quality, but it doesn't quite reach that level. The rooms are spacious. We had an oceanfront room. It was nice, but still a little disappointed. The hotel itself... More

The hotel is in a great location--right across the street from the beach with beautiful views of the the ocean and mountains on the quieter end of town. Having a road in front of the hotel is a non-issue; it does not detract from the ocean views and beach hotel vibe. The train runs close by, but it is infrequent... More

This hotel is located near the beach. You just have to cross the street. It is 2 km to the Pier and the beginning of the main street (State street). It is a big hotel, very busy, a bit outdated and a small swimming pool. Rooms are small, no safe in the room and the one thing that is so... More

From checking when we removed our own bags while valet stood at trunk watching us, we were disappointed. The concierge was. Non existent so on our own for all recommendations and reservations. We received a lovely email from Omar the day before we arrived so tried 3 times to respond to him with zero response. We even saw him at... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with me. Please accept my sincerest apologies for both the well-meaning, but inattentive follow through from Omar as well as for our valet service – I find this unacceptable and have taken action to remedy this. I apologize you were not aware that our front desk agents can help with concierge services and I... More

Celebrated an anniversary weekend here. Nice facility, we were in the main building. Looks like other parts might be a bit more stylish. About a mile and a half to downtown, an easy walk. Beach is right across the street.

The hotel in Santa Barbara really is not that great considering the price. I have had so much better service at less costly hotels. The front desk reception people not that professional, the valet kids were worthless.

we were excited to stay here expecting a luxurious stay especially for the price we paid around $380. Our first night we were assigned a room across the street, where guests with animals stay. Small, functional room that had no view; it was covered with plants. Wall mounted air conditioner. Asked the next day to be moved to a new... More

Overall it was a very nice stay, the people were generally very nice. Great Location; however after paying a lot of money for the room, I didn't expect to have the pool girl tell me I can't take my towel to the beach (right across the street) - I had even given her my room number, and I would have...

After some minor issues upon checking in, namely we were given a lesser room than we were promised, we were very pleased with our stay at the Hyatt. The issue with the room was quickly rectified and we were also very happy with the entire staff as they all went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
