We were at the Fess Parker for a wedding, which was held in the rotunda. During our three day stay, we were treated very well by the staff, which was instantly ready to do whatever it took to make our experience the best. One of the waitstaff, Xiomara by name, went completely above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I was pleased with the service. I cannot commend her highly enough. One of the valets, whose name, I believe, was Dave, went out of his way to make sure our physically handicapped son enjoyed his stay. The people there were great.
The rotunda with the ocean for a backdrop made an unforgettable view for the wedding, giving the ceremony a personality as unique as the happy couple in whose honor we were gathered. The Fess has a personality all its own, mixing Santa Barbara history with the modern conveniences we've come to expect.
The placement couldn't be better. The beach across the street, Stearn's Wharf a short walk up the road, a vegetable stand across the railroad tracks, and, if you have children with a particular culinary taste, McDonald's around the block.
