3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location was great. The service was also very good. The walls (and ceiling/floor) are very thin so you hear every step above you and every hall conversation. Not restful. Also, no coffee service is provided in the room and when requested we got a very old and dirty coffee pot.

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding Anniversary at the Biltmore and it was a little different than the previous Four Seasons we have stayed in. The Hotel definitely has an old world feeling but very tranquil. The staff are wonderful and lunch overlooking the ocean is sublime. My only criticism is the lack of fresh flowers in the... More

How can you go wrong with a Four Seasons Hotel? Always special to the area and combined with The Biltmore it's over the top. This hotel has the charm & style of a Biltmore property and the class and serivce of the Four Seasons. Just love this place filled with antiques, comfort and lots and lots of flowers! I've been...

One of those had to get away and have some special time with the love of my life. Four Seasons of Chicago was able to provide that and more. From our 37th floor suite overlooking the lake as well as a gorgeous city scape, we were both able to imagine us somewhere far away. The room accommodations (especially the bedding)... More

My husband and enjoyed a couple of nights here in October. Weather was superb. Hotel is has a rustic feel. Design is open and we were able to fully enjoy the climate. View and location are ideal, ocean is breathtaking. Food at the hotel is also excellent.

The hotel did grow on us a bit after a rather rough start. I booked a suite for $1000/night plus tax and another regular room for my son. The bellman took us to my sons room which was bright and rather nice. He then took us to our suite, which was best described as a stinky dungeon. It was a... More

If you're driving down the coast from SF, this is an oasis of calm before the manic nature of LA. This Four Seasons is a fantastic resort with everything you need to pamper yourself (and/or your significant other). This is a classy place and the terrace restaurant is beautiful for an evening dinner. The resort's location right on the shoreline... More

Located on Channel Drive overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Amazingly beautiful setting. Spanish colonial architecture and design. We had an Executive Suite with a sitting room entrance and a huge king bedroom attached. Gorgeous balcony doors with screened side-lights that you could open for fresh air and a lovely large balcony overlooking the garden and cottages. The bathroom is beautifully appointed... More

I had the opportunity to stay at The Biltmore on a recent trip to Santa Barbara for a Boardmeeting. The property is very lush along numerous pathways, making one feel as thought they are transported away from civilization. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. My room had a separate dressing area with full closets and additional dresser drawers. This... More

I had the best cocktail here at the bar while waiting for our room because for some reason it was not ready when we check-in so they offered us a complimentary drink while we kicked back. Beautifully appointed spanish mission style rooms that are like most Four Seasons with individual units. Views from the restaurant and bar areas are amazing.... More
