I am writing to express my gratitude for all that the Hyatt did for my brother and my best friend this past weekend. (Feb 6) I have been helping my brother plan his proposal to my best friend for weeks now, and he wanted to do it when they arrived at the hotel. We do not live in Santa Barbara,... More

We booked our stay on Kayak and were able to request a room overlooking the pool and the beach. Nice rooms (not huge) with a refurbished old-style feel. Loved our stay; my only complaint would be that they try to charge for parking. This is a Hyatt thing that corporate doesn't seem to appreciate in areas where charging for parking... More

This is not a typical Hyatt hotel. The room was ok. The bed was very comfortable similar to other Hyatt hotels. The staff were very friendly. I didnt use the $28 valet parking but found plenty of parking just outside the hotel , sometimes in the next street. The hotel is close to downtown, taking uber will cost approx $5-$10.... More

The best part about the accommodations was the bed. Very comfortable, makes you not want to get up. The room was basic. Our heater didn't work and we had to call maintenance to fix. Was a decent stay, however, not worth the price tag. Staff was friendly. We've stayed in cheaper hotels that weren't as average.

Good location but $28 to park in Santa Barbara? Also no included breakfast which is common in that city. I will continue to look for other hotels when in the area. On the plus side the views are great.

Stayed here thankfully for just one night in December 2015, the hotel wasn't good & the room was very poor with horrid artex all over the walls it certainly wasn't what we expected from a Hyatt Hotel in any respect. There was a horrid smell in the room which was a smell of damp & mustiness - not very nice.... More

Thank you for your constructive criticism regarding your stay with us last year. We apologize for your dissatisfaction with some of our design elements. Here at the Santa Barbara, we believe our stucco interior and exterior keeps the character of Santa Barbara’s rich history alive. In regards to the odor that you may have experienced, we suspect it might have... More
