Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara
Ranked #6 of 52 Hotels in Santa Barbara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Every detail was perfection, especially with the help of the Catering Manager, Akiko Suzuki. The location of the hotel and the Coral Casino couldn't get any better. The staff were eager to help and provide anything we needed. The food at the reception was just fabulous, even though to most it would have seemed mundane, they made it look like and taste like nouvelle Mexican. Our hotel room was wonderful, bright airy and very roomy.
We live in Santa Barbara, but it was lovely to experience this resort as guest, I think I would have been very impressed as were many of our wedding guests from out of town.
My daughter and son-in-law had a wedding they will always remember.

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel are sunnier than the cottages in the back of the hotel

From the moment you arrive and they open your door the Four Season treatment begins. They are very attentive. Our room was beautiful and well equipped. We enjoyed the fireplace even in August. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. You can walk for hours just on the grounds. It is very close walking distance to Monticeto for restaurants and shops. The spa treatments are amazing with many options. Bella, Ty and Tydes are restaurants at the resort and all are wonderful. We spent time at the pool and across at the Casino lap pool, both perfect for relaxing, sun bathing or swimming. Both pools have a hot tub. We look forward to going back next summer.

The hotel property itself is beautiful with great views of the ocean and a decent beach. There's access to a private beach club with a great pool. Rooms are ok - despite renovations they still show their (very old) age. Service was great although I wish they were more open about the possibility of self parking at significantly cheaper rates or even for free instead of making it seem like valet at $35+ a day was the only option. Breakfast was excellent. You'll need a car to get to State street in Santa Barbara where everything is located - biking is not a straightforward coastal route but winds inland a bit. Excellent access to the freeway.

Everything was perfect so no comment. From the personal greetings at your arrival - and throughout your stay - all the way to the last second in this establishment, everything exudes attention to detail. I wish I could have stayed longer to try all the facilities of the hotel...

We got married here in March, and it was incredible. Upon arrival we were escorted to our bridal suite which was located directly behind the ceremony site. The views were beautiful, and the staff were more than accommodating. We had a fruit platter and chips with guacamole and salsa waiting for us in our room. The Catering Manager, Akiko, worked with us for over a year prior to the wedding to make sure everything was absolutely perfect, and it was. Set up for the ceremony was in a timely manner, and the food at the reception was exquisite. The only problem that arose for our room and many of our guest's rooms was the noise complaints. We got a noise complaint on the day of the wedding at 2 PM when we had 11 bridesmaids and groomsmen all preparing for the ceremony. The complaints continued throughout the day and many guests received complaints on our wing upon just returning from the reception. It would have been nice if the staff would have mentioned the wedding going on, and removed the individual who kept calling the complaints to another part of the hotel. This other patron was insistent upon not allowing us to have a bit of fun on our big day. All in all, we honestly couldn't dream of getting married in a more beautiful place, and the hospitality of the Biltmore staff just made the experience that much better. They really care about making your day as special as if it was their own. We hope we can return on our 1 year anniversary!

This is one of our favorite hotels in the world. Beautiful setting, stunning gardens, immaculate rooms. The service is prompt and personal. The rooms are well appointed and private. There are beautiful views in all directions; even if you don't book an ocean-view room, you can count on lovely garden views.

We got married at the Biltmore and it truly was a perfect weekend. They we on top of every detail, welcoming each guest as if he or she were close family. The entire staff, from the special-events team to the porters and gardeners, was told who we were and greeted us (and our families) wherever we were on the property---totally unnecessary but a nice touch and typical of the level of attention and service the staff lived up to throughout the weekend. Unlike some hotels along the coast that operate like wedding factories, with four services going on at once, sometimes in full view of one another, at the Biltmore you will feel like the entire place is yours.

Room Tip: The cottages are incredible --- ask for one closest to the Coral Casino (southern part of the proper...
