I live in Santa Barbara now, so I don't stay here any longer, but I love coming here for dinner, drinks, and events. It is located across from a beautiful beach (Butterfly) and is an incrediblly gorgeous facility. The service is excellent. Tip: be sure to explore the Music Academy of the West, which is nearby. If you're lucky enough... More

My wife struggles sleeping on soft mattresses, and every bed at the Biltmore has a pillow top mattresses (irremovable). First nights rest was difficult for her, and when we approached the front desk the following morning, we inquired if any rooms on the property had a bed without a pillow top. Their answer was no, but they would remedy the... More

We stay at the Santa Barbara Biltmore EVERY year for our anniversary in June. We couldn't be treated better. We can afford to go anywhere, but this is where we go every year because we LOVE it, and are treated royally. Every year we arrive with chilled champagne and chocolates in our room. We meet fabulous people at the pool,... More

An incredible hotel and grounds. The rooms are lovely. The coral casino pool and exercise rooms are really nice and make it very special. Food and drinks are wonderful. It is a very expensive hotel, but worth it.

We stayed at the Biltmore in Santa Barbara for 5 days as a family. A seriously beautiful location and they have managed to preserve the hotels history and yet make it very comfortable and welcoming. The rooms were great, very comfortable beds and nice terraces. The staff were really helpful; had great recommendations and a "can do" attitude. The facilities... More

Looking for a beach not too far from LA, we decided on the FS Biltmore due to having stayed in many other Four Seasons before. Whilst the resort was beautifully cared for and the staff were most friendly, I however did not get that same '6 star luxury', I had felt in other FS hotels. The rooms were great, large... More

We returned to this magnificent property after four years. We were upgraded to The Ty Warner suite - luxurious! The walk on the property is a pleasure, the jog on the beach across the road is exhilarating. The spa treatments are a must. We relaxed to the ocean waves and soaked up the sunshine at the beach club. Dinner in... More

The best ever hospitality in the west coast. It was a father and son surfing 10 days in the west coast. We do not see the level of service in the US any further due to cost reductions of the major chains. Bravo Four Seasons, you still manage good and show that people should not go to eastern countries to... More
