I had long planned to stay at this Four Seasons but had never previously got round to it: the small room sizes for the money charged had partly deterred me. Admittedly, for the money, the accommodation is the weak part of this top-notch resort: it's old-fashioned with next to no storage in the relatively small bathroom. Next time,I wouldn't bother...

Beautiful hotel and wonderful service. Most comfortable bed slept in for a long time. Bedrooms equipped with everything you could need. Dinner was superb in the restaurant but service at breakfast was very slow. Expensive hotel and expect to pay extra to use the pool on the beachfront.

It was an amazing stay. Hotel is very well decorated with fine furnitures and art pieces at every corner. We definitely felt like home. Bella Vista restaurant has a nice ocean view, you can hear the tides when you are having your breakfast , it was very relaxing , also sunset view at dinner was amazing. Food was OK, not... More

Four Seasons is known for their Customer Service and the Biltmore does not disappoint! This is on my top choices of hotels to visit annually. The Coral Casino is a great place to workout and grab a quick coffee first thing in the morning. Walks on the beautiful Butterfly beach anytime of day are a must! The only thing I... More

We were staying at the Biltmore for a conference. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived and we received an upgrade! The room was wonderful and the service was great too. This hotel is understated elegance! I would recommend this place over and over! Thanks again Four Seasons Biltmore for a Wonderful stay

We were so excited to stay at our 3rd Four Seasons. American Airlines cancelled our flight and we were stranded at the Airport till the next day. Called the Four Seasons and they said they would NOT charge us for the missed night, even though it was less than 24 hours notice. This extremely kind gesture took all the pressure... More

Only Riverside's Mission Inn is more artistically filled with beautiful interior decor. It may be the perfect West Coast hotel. Class and Elegance are its hallmark. The Achilles Heel of the Mission Inn, its surrounding hot, dry and ugly desert environment is the polar opposite of the Biltmore. It is located along the gorgeous Santa Barbara coastline, right across the... More

Stepped in to have breakfast/lunch; The food was pretty good, a little too pricey but that's expected. The Nutella crepes were way too sweet for breakfast-more like a dessert, the chicken yummy, French fries just okay, salad so-so; the iced tea and Shirley Temple's excellent. The service just right and the location...wow! Fun to walk across the street to the... More
