“Peaceful, comfortable and a great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A very clean and quiet hotel . The linens and bed were very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location being right across the street from the hotel and close to State Street. The pool and hot tub were also very nice. We had a wonderful breakfast at their restaurant.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

This place fits in well with the style of Danta Barbara. A historic hotel, smart entrance, attentive if pricey valet, beautiful airy room but the bar and the restaurant are a disaster. I've been in better Starbucks. It's a long hike from the lobby and has absolutely zero character and ambiance. What are they thinking? If you have to hike that far please make it worthwhile!

Any hotel that serves me great sangria at check in has me at hello. It's worth the upgrade to get an ocean facing room. Great staff, decent hotel restaurant. Easy walk into town, to the zoo, where ever you need to get in Santa Barbara. Street parking available, too.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

This was our third stay at the Hyatt, and will not be our last. We had a wonderful large ocean view room, in a quiet area of the hotel. The room was very peaceful and quiet, and the bed was excellent. There was room for a rollaway bed, which we needed when our daughter came for one night. The staff is extraordinarily nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. I love the airy, mediterranean feel of the hotel, and the history. Of course, the location cannot be beat. Right across the street from East Beach, and a very short drive to Montecito, the pier, shopping, restaurants, and State Street. We find ourselves in Santa Barbara at least twice a year, and the Hyatt will be the first place we look at for availability.

We read the reviews on Trip advisor and were wary but when we arrived, we were confused on those reviews. The hotel was wonderful, stayed true to the Hyatt brand and the staff was very service oriented. We would recommend the hotel and will be staying there again for future trips to Santa Barbara.

I loved our stay. The staff was very friendly and the hotel accommodated our request for room type and view. It's an older hotel but they have done a great job in remodeling the rooms. The pool area has a wonderful area to just relax and enjoy the fire pit. The location is close to restaurants and shopping.

Customer service was excellent and so appreciated! We enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay with a great brunch each morning. Loved being able to walk across to the beach and enjoy the sun. The room and bed was very nice. Pedistal sink doesn't work too well. Overall a great 2 day experience!

Room Tip: beach view rooms looked nice but would have more street noise
