The hotel is beautiful with a heated rooftop pool and jacuzzi (all working and open)! It’s walkable to State Street and all the shops/restaurants and a quick bike ride to the beach (hotel bikes are available for guests to use)! The entire staff was amazing from start to finish; really exceptional service! We couldn’t get our chrome cast to work in our room and the concierge comped us parking for all nights and a movie rental without any prompt from us. My husband left his Apple Watch there when checking out. Someone from housekeeping turned it in and the hotel called us to notify us before we even knew we left it behind. The beds and rooms were nice and clean. I would highly recommend staying here while in Santa Barbara!

We chose the Canary Hotel as our original wedding venue prior to Covid-19, based on the fact that they hosted LGTBQIA+ weddings and as a lesbian couple, this made us feel very comfortable. We were very excited to have our wedding night at the Canary Hotel and were warmly greeted by the front desk. We excitedly opened our room to find a gorgeous cheese board and a beautiful bottle of wine. Our delight quickly turned to disappointment when we read the tag: Welcome Mr. and Mrs (insert last name). Which is an issue because we would be addressed as Mrs and Mrs. When addressing the issue with the front desk, the matter was laughed off, not taken seriously, and no apology was offered. We would love to make the Canary Hotel our destination for our anniversaries in the future, but with the incident at the front desk, we aren’t sure it’s the best choice for a lesbian couple.

Nice hotel, very good service. The walls are thin. There was a crying baby for two days. I felt sorry for the parents too. The King suite has a nice bed, a second room if you have a mate that can’t sleep with or without a crying baby… some suggestions: AC plugs bedside for phones. Charge a little less for parking ($40)… put a basic coffee machine in the room or coffee in the lobby… George Clooney was wrong. Nespresso no bien. Lastly, get a new food and beverage manager… the restaurant and room service menu is a C-… Put a burger, club sandwich, some soup on the menu… especially for room service. You force us to go elsewhere… evern for a twenty dollar burger.

Beautiful hotel located right at the center of State street. As a platinum member, we’ve stayed at many IHG properties, but this one tops them all in US. Angele Pericola, front office manager helped our needs from the beginning, upgrading our room to a gorgeous suite over looking court yard and mountains. Separate deep bath tub and shower bathroom was my favorite room. Also loved the rooftop pool area where we enjoyed free happy hour wine. One of the activities I enjoyed was riding a complementary rental bike through State street, where the roads were closed to the traffic for bikers and pedestrians only. Nice gentlemen at the valet, Adrian, informed me about the perk and we took the advantage. Overall, 5 star hotel, service and location. Would try by my best to come back soon!

Beautiful boutique hotel. Exactly the kind of place we were hoping to stay while in Santa Barbara. Ideal location to walk to State St, the marina and other locations. Room was clean and well appointed. Rooftop was spectacular!! Would definitely stay again!
