It never does dissapoint... ever. We were driving down the coast from San Fran and we had medioca weather so decided to treat ourselves to something we knew we could rely on. It was out first trip to Santa Barb, which is a sweet place. Having stayed with the 4S a few times before we made the booking over the... More

The Four Seasons really knows how to treat its guests. Everyone is pleasant and accommodating and the location cannot be beat. You'll need to drive to downtown Santa Barbara, but the resort is within walking distance of downtown Montecito which is full of shops and restaurants. There is a resort pool and, as a resort guest, you'll also have access... More

not much that I can add to previous comments. Really an amazing hotel. Fantastic Pool. Great Service. In our case we had a Cottage, it was huge. The SPA is fine, not the best one in the world but good. The GYM is fine also. To highlight, the food is great.

It was a wonderful 3 night stay. The rooms and service are impecable. It is first class all the way then again that is what you are paying for. The bed was so comfortable, excellent service with everynight turn down service. The bathrooms are wonderful. You truly do not want to leave. Staff remembered our name after just one day.

There is a noticeable difference between a Four Seasons hotel and other hotels. From beginning to end it was a fantastic experience. Great reception, friendly staff, clean, and well kept. You are practically on the water. (across the street) The rooms are elegant with good bathrooms, and we even had a front balcony with sun chairs and a table. Great... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Biltmore in Santa Barbara. Wow, from check in to check out we enjoyed every minute of our vacation. This place is like being lost in a secret garden and not wanting to ever leave. Ask David the concierge anything and he delivers. He gave us all the best secrets of... More

Our July weekend at the Four Seasons could not have been better. The rooms are spacious and tasteful, the grounds spectacular, and service friendly and knowledgeable. The only surprise of our stay was how unexpectedly wonderful the Coral Casino beach club was. We didn't even know about its existence until we got there. This facility, just a few steps from... More

My wife and needed a little break from our 2 year old twins and decided a night at the Biltmore would be the trick. The room (704) was perfect. After we checked we had a couples massage and then had dinner at the hotel. We couldn't ask for anything more and we are already planning our next stay.

Just spent a week at the hotel. Service was great. Room was great. Pool was great. I have no complaints. I tipped the bellman and the car boys generously and I got service. Be sure to take a city tour with Coastal Conceirge - ask for Matt. He can tell you where to go and where to avoid. I really... More
