We only spent one night as this was part of a California road trip, but wished we could have extended. The team were marvellous from valet through porters to reception and concierge> everyone was friendly and helpful and genuinely interested to help. The culture within the team was excellent and the grounds are well maintained and great to stroll through.... More

This is just an amazing property. You can't imagine how relaxing a location this is! The prices are commensurate with a 4 Seasons experience but everything but the massage was worth it! Food was good, spa was nice, rooms were lovely, location was unbeatable. Katy in the patio bar has a margarita with cucumbers and jalapeños in it that is... More

I expected so much more. HISTORIC should never be used as an excuse for sub-par and outdated facilities. What infuriates me so much is that a hotel that collects rave reviews in the hundreds, charges well in excess of 1200 dollars for one night (!) in a plain ground-floor room with NO view can still fail on so many different...

Great location for business and leisure and golf. Rooms and service are outstanding. Restaurant is ok but menu is too limited. Outdoor dining and enjoying sunset is unforgettable. Make sure drinks and white wine are cool enough. Cheers!

The Olympic sized swimming pool is so unbelievably amazing it should have its own 6 star review! This has to be one of our favourite hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff are superior, the location is amazing and we could not have asked for a better hotel to spend our honeymoon in. Planning a return visit next year... More

We love our annual trip to Santa Barbara and are fortunate to be able to stay at this gorgeous property! After walking on the beach in the early morning, my dog and i are greeted with smiles and the offer of dog treats upon our return. Complimentary coffee/tea/hot cocoa is available for these early morning strolls. The grounds are simply... More

I was staying in this beautiful hotel for one night, part of a roadtrip for our honeymoon and we love the attention, room, gardens, service. It is located in a nice place. Love this hotel, if I went to be in Santa Barbara again, I would stay there again.

The Biltmore-Four Season is actually in Montecito, a tiny cove just outside the hustle of Santa Barbara. My adorable English bull dog and I were looking for a place to sleep, relax, stroll, while my husband visited with family for a few days. I was exhausted from a heavy work load and this was just the place. We stayed in... More

This hotel was beautiful, and we had a wonderful stay here. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the views from the restaurant were spectacular. The spa was also fantastic. My only complaint was that our room smelled a little funny, somewhat like ant repellant for the entire stay. We didn't complain because it was a minor problem, but our... More

We stayed two nights to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. The Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara is located in a prime beach area of the city. It's right across the street (a relatively quiet 2-lane street) from a beautiful beach with bike and walking paths featuring great ocean views and unbelievable custom estates nearby. It's perfect because you are... More
