I really wanted to like this hotel after reading reviews and making the choice on where to stay, but honestly it's more hype than substance. The staff are friendly but not proactive. Our room was ok, small and it never got cool. We called maintenance...More

The Canary is a luxury hotel slightly off the main drag (now disappointingly slightly seedy) of Santa Barbara, with a business feel to it. Although it has a "hip" bar and roof top pool with views of the hills to the east and ocean to...More

The pool is on the terrace on the roof of the hotel - great location. The pool is small - no room for swimming laps! It is a fantastic hotel.

The pool is open 7 am to 10 pm. My friends and I definitely could have lingered later in the spa at night... but they do enforce the hours! Absolutely beautiful pool and jacuzzi.
