We spent 4 nights at the Canary in March 2013 - booking two rooms for my sisters 50th birthday. Upon arrival we hit their happy hour wine tasting - a wonderful thing I must say! We loved our rooms - EXCEPT please put a solid door on the bathroom. At present it's a slotted door so you can hear EVERYTHING. The view from our balcony and the rooftop was exceptional. The service at the hotel was also stellar. We used their free hotel bikes to cruise around but low and behold one of them broke and one of my sisters had to walk/run the rest of the way back to the hotel (we were over a mile away). Other than that we had a wonderful stay at the Canary and would choose them again if visiting Santa Barbara - the location is key and the only one in walking distance to everything. P.S. My sister whose birthday we were celebrating and travels all over the world for business found a few weird items stuck between the mattresses - a crushed soda can and some unknown substance was on the bed ruffle so she had to call the front desk to have the whole bed remade again - which they did immediately.
