This was a very nice hotel but as far as a luxury hotel for the price we paid, I have definitely been in better hotels. We stayed in a cottage which was great. Grounds are beautiful. Pool is very small and you do not get access to the Casino club pool across the street. Plus, you will have to put... More

Stayed for a week on business and had a fantastic time. One of the best hotels I have stayed in all my years of traveling for business. The service was wonderful and the grounds were immaculate. Every person that you pass by always smiles and says hello. You get the feeling that everyone enjoys working at this venue.

I generally like the 4 Seasons experience. You pay a premium but you get tremendous amenities and service. The extras were very good but the room was a big disappointment. The hotel is laid out like a little condo community. Lots of connected little buildings with garden pathways around them. Very few rooms have any view and we were on... More

Beautiful hotel, awesome service, friendly staff. You just feel welcome! The views are incredible. The rooms are cozy and luxurious. The hotel has so much history, I believe it was built in 1929. It even has a secret room that is now used as a meeting room. The grounds are gorgeous. A must see, must stay, must come back!

My husband and I have vacationed at this resort annually for at least 20 years; especially in celebration of our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday in June. The personnel are outstanding, professional, and attentive. For the last several years, upon our return, our celebrations are noted and acknowledged not only verbally upon registration, but through room upgrades, and thoughtful... More

Everything about this hotel is truly amazingly beautiful. I took many walks around the property to enjoy the beauty of the gardens throughout. The tile work is everywhere and so beautiful, with different designs in each room. The beach is across the street which we loved to walk along and swim, therefore we did not spend any time in the...

My wife and I stayed at the Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara at the beginning of May of this year. We booked using my AMEX Platinum card and the Fine Hotels and Resorts website. We arrived around noon, driving up from Orange County. Check in was easy. Upon check in, we were given a pass to the Coral Casino for... More

Great location and friendly staff but way overpriced for what you get. Expensive wifi add on. They provide bathrobes but NOT slippers which is something you note when walking around on well used carpeting. Also this hotel has the worst television reception I've seen in decades. Image a nice big flat screen TV in your room but with only Analog... More
