The Biltmore is a fantastically located hotel, nearly 90 years old, which has kept its charms and style. The view from the bar/restaurant over the ocean is beautiful and the area is very peaceful. Certainly the best place to stay in Santa Barbara. I was surprised, however, to find out that the bike rental was 15USD per hour - a... More

First off, this hotel is stunning, one of my favorites. I just stayed there and booked a room and it was just so small compared to the other times we have gone, they must have upgraded us before, but for the amount of money we spent we wanted a little bit more space. It was a standard room. That being... More

Elegantly beautiful grounds with a lush, tropical vibe. The staff was very accommodating and our requests were immediately answered. We arrived early and they gave us iced tea while we waited in the spacious and comfortable lobby. Our room were charming with french doors opening onto a patio, then out to a small courtyard. There were little paths everywhere that... More

Our stay at the Four Seasons Biltmore was perfect. The staff was kind and accommodating, even with two babies in tow. The resort is beautiful and restful, and I truly hope to return again some day. I highly recommend. Breakfast buffet excellent also!

Bungalow suite with privacy overlooking the ocean. Great property with great accommodations. Everything was well done and pretty much perfect. Access to swim club is a must. The Four Seasons Resort, The Biltmore, Santa Monica would be top of our list for a return visit.

We ordered the brunch at 10:30, on a Monday morning. There were many dishes that were empty, or only one or two items remaining. The loxs appeared to be small pieces that someone had taken a handful of and plopped it on the platter, but there was only one spoonful of whipped cream cheese. The Brie had green mold on... More

They are missing the mark at this property. I complained to management and they did not respond. I frequent many four seasons and I generally NEVER complain. They botched check-in, sent me to the wrong bungalow after I checked in and then questioned my identity when I had to trek back to the front desk. It was weird. They left... More

From first sight this beautiful property overlooking the ocean was the highlight of our recent roadtrip in California. The grounds are beautifully maintained with impeccable taste. The pool area is well cared for. Service was stunning. Informal and relaxed, but always delivered with genuine care and friendliness. From valet attendants to restaurant servers there was just the right level of... More

My wife and I stayed at this place for a work-related conference. Old Spanish/Mediterranean style architecture characterizes this resort that is well preserved and redesigned adorning this exclusive location in Santa Barbara. Rooms are good size and very luxurious. Function rooms are very well maintained and service is excellent. Food is very good at their restaurants and pricey as expected... More

Technically this property is in Montecito -- not a bad thing by any stretch as you can walk-up to the main street which has wonderful restaurants and fair shopping. Its also very easy to get bikes from the hotel and ride into Santa Barbara proper - an easy ride and Santa Barbara is very approachable on bike. The hotel property... More
