Fabulous location just across from the ocean. Hotel is old world and charming and fraying a bit at the edges. Room was clean, well appointed and ocean front. Breakfast buffet was just okay and far below other Hyatt Regency breakfasts. Restaurant failed to open at 630 as advertised. Things seemed just a bit off perhaps because it was just before...

$28 pricey parking but plenty of free spaces on the street. Right across from beach and close to town center so great location. Stayed in older building which was a bit noisy near the pool. Super soft pillows and bed, a bit too soft for me. Service good and decent size room. Nice pool with bar attached . Our 2nd...

Valet is too much, $28 and you have to pay for guests. Room is big and nice but furniture and carpet looked a little run down for the price. View of ocean was partially blocked by two trees which makes no sense

I attended a conference at Hyatt Centric and did not have a choice in accommodation. The hotel staff was excellent and very accomodating, but the hotel itself was pretty ordinary. As a World of Hyatt member, I did not see any benefits to membership. The spa in the pool area was not very good with jets that barely worked. It...

This place is overhyped which is no big deal but the basics just don't measure up to Hyatt standards. Sure, Santa Barbara is expensive. But our $400+ per night, "ocean view" room was dark and dingy, first floor with nice view of the road outside (ocean across the street), paltry bath products (I'm not picky but how's about a decent...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. We do hear similar feedback regarding our bath amenities from time to time and we'd like to ensure you that BeeKind is a widely recognized brand and is the standard for Hyatt Centric. These products are all natural and are not toxic to our environment. We are sorry to hear...

spent two nights at this hotel with my son. Rooms must be 40 years old, everything but reception is run down. Floor full of stains, sink in the entrance and bathroom is as bad as all the rest. This facility is showing pictures on the internet that do not correspond to what you will find, be aware!

Hello and thank you for staying with us. We are terribly sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations as a Hyatt Centric in Santa Barbara. We certainly understand that when some guests think of Hyatt, they think of large modern buildings, whereas ours is more unique and very much in the style of other traditional hotels in Santa...
