HIghly recommend the Four Seasons Santa Barbara. The staff was welcoming and courteous, the bed so comfortable, and the restaurant and lounge wonderful. You walk across the street to the ocean and there are wonderful wineries, cute little towns, hiking and shopping nearby. We hope to go back soon!

We stayed 2 nights here. We were not thrilled with our room location, which was 419. The upper floor on the freeway side picked up very loud traffic noise during the night when the big rigs got going. We had asked for an early check-in, which was all yes-yes, but turned into a substantial wait when my husband overheard the... More

Visited here one day for lunch, whilst travelling around LA and Santa Barbara. Managed to be seated outside on the patio with fire pit and heaters, beautiful Californian sunny day, just as we envisaged! Delicious food and drinks, the view made them all the better though! Recommended!

The Biltmore is beautiful. It's Spanish style and has a quaint feeling to it. I loved the charming tiled bathrooms with huge tubs and rain showers. We were there for the weekend for a wedding and the service for guests of the wedding was impeccable. I will say however that I'm not sure how they justify such high prices. The... More

Yes, it's expensive, launch for one is about $ 50.00 but worth every penny, because the food is great, the service perfect and the attention to every detail- not to be missed. I... More

One of the unique qualities of the Four Seasons Biltmore is every single employee said hello during our four day stay. How many hotels have that kind of customer service? I was impressed. This hotel has beautiful grounds, is across the street from the Pacific Ocean for a nice walk/run on the beach, with sunsets that are awesome. The hotel... More

Simply put, best hotel+resort experience ever. Enjoy the pool time, the hot spa, and the club. Wake up early, watch the sun rise and dolphins swimming. Breakfast here is pricey, but tastes fine. Best 4 day leisure vocation ever.

The colors, decorations and smells ... everything makes you want to live there. The staff were beyond amazing ... at first unbelievable. I had to go back to a few that met me on arrival to give them more tip money. I haven't had a hotel experience that left me this thrilled since 1995. And I was there on business!!!
