I stayed at the Hyatt Santa Barbara while on a business trip. I'm glad that I didn't pay for the room as it was overpriced for just an ok room. Make sure to ask for a room with a view of the ocean. There is a beach across the street which would have made for a nice view, but I was given a basic king bed room with a view of a wall. (These rooms were included in the block that my organization reserved).
Like other travelers have reported, the rooms are outdated, and the air conditioning unit is loud. However, the property is nicely detailed with Spanish architecture throughout, the bed is comfortable and the shower is nice. The staff is pleasant, but I had to ask for my room to be cleaned several times.
Overall, this hotel isn't horrible; it's just meh. If I came back on my own dime, I wouldn't stay here.
