My wife and I decided last minute to get out of town for two days. We stayed here just because I didn’t feel like jumping from place to place, too tired after driving. I was a little surprised by the $280 price tag but just caved in. They did let us check in early (11:00 AM!) and also dropped the price to $250 for the corner room. Staff was always very friendly and professional. Room was definitely on the small side but furniture and 4 poster bed where nice and comfortable. The only lacking feature is the sink had some major rust spots and needs attention, but everything else in the room was fine. It’s in the middle of town so easy walking distance to everything Solvang has to offer. My wife is handicapped and has limited walking ability, so this was an advantage. You have a choice of above or underground parking with direct elevator access. In the hot summer the underground parking with direct elevator access was a big plus. The breakfast was nice with fresh pastries/bread from the bakery next door, fresh local fruit, and cold cuts. The dining room is nicely furnished and service was good. If you need the four star service (cleaners, etc.) then it’s worth the extra money. I’ve just never had a need to have my laundry cleaned and pressed while away so we will be looking for a more economical inn on our next trip. They do have some very nice large meeting rooms downstairs for business or reception type meetings if you have that requirement.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Landsby, a newly renovated 41-room boutique hotel, will bring a unique hospitality offering when the doors open in spring 2015. Located in downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the property will combine a bright contemporary design with Scandinavian elements inspired by the town's Danish roots. The Landsby, which means "the village" in Danish, will offer an authentic hospitality experience to both visitors and locals. Designed by Santa Monica-based design firm, Studio Collective, the hotel incorporates a Scandinavian lodge aesthetic with a design nod to the past. The hotel lobby has been completely reconstructed to add relaxed lounge spaces and a new bar. The bar's lively atmosphere will be the perfect place for patrons to gather and enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of locally-produced wine. The bright and welcoming guestrooms, including several junior suites and our signature tower suite, will be finished with blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, genuine leather accents and sophisticated, yet comfortable, handcrafted furnishings. The rooms will feature whimsical artwork commissioned by a regional artist and thoughtful accessories, which work together to create a residential ambiance. Standard room rates start at $225 and suites start at $329. All guests will have access to the property's redesigned outdoor garden lounge. This new space will prove an oasis for guests can relax and unwind among lush landscaping and romantically lit trees. Additionally, the property will serve as an ideal retreat for meetings, with multiple meeting venues offering a total of 2980 square feet. The property also provides full-service amenities, catered meals from the restaurant, as well as access to courtyard and garden areas that can be used for breaks. Mad & Vin, the hotel's highly anticipated restaurant, is inspired by the local wine region of the California coast. The name of the restaurant, which translates to "food and wine" in Danish, continues to play off of the hotel's Scandinavian inspiration. Executive Chef Seth Nathan will develop a specialized menu that captures flavors from around the world and incorporates them into foods native to the area. The restaurant will offer dinner seven days a week in addition to daily breakfast. A complimentary breakfast will be included for all hotel guests. Located 35 miles northeast of Santa Barbara, The Landsby is centrally located in downtown Solvang and steps away from boutique shops, bakeries, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, wine-tasting rooms, and restaurants. ... more less
