I was visiting friends in Santa Barbara for the first time in many years and am so glad I had the opportunity to stay at the Canary. The hotel has personality and charm -- classic California elegance. As others have mentioned, you feel welcomed by the staff from the moment you arrive and cared for during your stay. Location is perfect -- the downtown shopping area is right out the door. The rooms are well appointed with attention paid to the details; the bed and pillows very comfortable (the m... Read more

The rooms are pretty and I love a good bathtub. The restaurant is very good. But I was awakened by garbage trucks and staff talking loudly in hallways at about 3 am and it was noisy for rest of night. No one asked me how my stay was when I checked out but when I asked where to get a newspaper they looked at me like I was from Mars. These are all first world problems but for me sleep while on business trips is paramount!

I am a big fan of the Kimpton Hotels and so excited to add this one to the list of my favorites! I would recommend this property to anyone going to Santa Barbara and I will definitely plan to come back. Everyone from valet, front desk and the pool were friendly and helpful. The front desk gave us excellent wine tasting recommendations, walking distance from the hotel. Also recommend the restaurant and using the bikes from the hotel to see the town!

We stayed one night in Santa Barbara and the hotel was ideal with a great downtown location.

What a stunning hotel this is. We stayed here on the Santa Barbara leg of our recent honeymoon and we were delighted with this hotel. Panoramic suite, roof top swimming pool with views of the mountains. Service was excellent, we were made to feel very special on our honeymoon by their welcoming gifts in our room. Sadly we only stayed one night but we plan to come back here in the not too distant future.

This is definitely one of my favorite hotels. Not only is it conveniently located. Near beach, and DT State street. The hotel has a beautiful rooftop pool. Stunning views. Rooms have amazing beds. Very comfy. The bar serves some of the best drinks in town. (thanks Stacey) and the restaurant Finch and Fork is considered one of the best in the are. The F & F burger is a must.

We had such a wonderful mother/daughter retreat at the Canary. They actually pay attention to reservation notes and for us their attentiveness blew us away. When we got to our suite, we had that instant feeling of joy that this was going to be a great stay!

We loved our stay at the Canary! Everything was great! We were upgraded to a suite (fabulous) for our anniversary, but I am sure the regular rooms were nice, too.

Conveniently located downtown. The Canary is a Kimpton property and at the high end of Kimpton's portfolio. Rooms are very well furnished, luxurious, and spacious. Staff was extremely friendly. If choosing among local Kimptons, this is vastly better than the Goodland, Kimpton's other area hotel.

What a spectacular place! Awesome staff and prefect location! Don't forget to check out the great rooftop pool! We spent 4 days in Santa Barbara and Canary made it special! We came into Santa Barbara 2 days early and found our place at the Canary. Quick walk to state street and prefect place to find plenty to do and eat.

Best place in town ! Right in downtown and walking distance to all best shops and the beach. This is by far one of the most beautiful cities here in California. The Finch & Fork restaurant at this hotel was delicious. Thank you the friendly and helpful staff at the Canary. Awesome amenities and service and so quiet and before I forget beautiful views from the rooftop pool and bar. We hang out by pool during the morning and had a delicious room service breakfast up there!

Arrived to a friendly reception team who immediately asked if we would like a glass of wine - having just driven from Monterey this was most welcome after a day of beautiful views and experiences! Room was lovely with 4 poster bed and bathroom with separate shower and bath. Felt homely but contemporary. The hotel was larger than I expected yet it still is able to deliver many personalised touches everywhere alongside excellent service. Impressive ! It is a special birthday year for me and I came...

From the second we arrived the staff were just lovely. They offered us a glass of wine on checkin. The foyer had such a nice feel to it with lovely colours and furnishings I would have been happy to stay there! Our room was gorgeous - lovely furniture and colours, lots of space, huge bathroom, wonderful bed linen. The pool is on the top floor - lots of cheerful yellow umbrellas and sun loungers, also waiters to get you a drink - could have stayed there all day! We didn't - we borrowed bikes (4 o... Read more

I have stayed at the Canary a couple times over the last year. The beds are super comfortable and the property is very nice. The rooms are not large but they are works and flow alright. The quality of the finishes is great. One nice feature is the 5pm complimentary wine tasting and apps. Its not a big production but kind of a nice touch. The Finch restaurant is good for breakfast/brunch (haven't eaten there for anything else). The other thing that makes this property is the location 1 b... Read more

Stayed here for two nights with our family of four in a junior suite. Customer service exceeded expectations. Property is charming and close to everything downtown. Clean and lovely. We were very pleased. Rooftop pool a bit small for families, but would please most couples or small groups of friends as it has a great vibe and beautiful view. Ian at the front desk was on top of every detail.

Has seen a few mixed reviews on here so didn't know what to expect but any fears were put to rest as we walked through the doors. Modern but a little quirky and loved it. We stayed in a suite and while bathroom and facilities were a tad dated it actually added to the charm. the bar and restaurant looked very nice even though we didn't use them. the free wine at 5pm in reception was great little touch. the roof top pool is pretty small be warned if you have a large family expecting a massive pool...

What a great find. Pool on roof (which is a bonus as swimming in the sea comes with the disadvantage of oil!! Bugger to get off) friendly staff good service and a chilled glass by the pool. Everything is on the door step and the marina is a short uber away. Many thanks will come back next time in town. Oh Finch and fork good burger and a proper cocktail.

This hotel is gorgeous. Rooms are beautifully decorated and have comfortable beds. The rooftop terrace with pool is really wonderful. Overall service has been excellent and I cannot wait to return to Santa Barbara for another excuse to stay here. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have been coming to the Canary for years with my girlfriends. This visit was with my husband. Joseph and his staff (Lindsey, Bo, Keisha were nothing short of spectacular! The hotel staff go up and beyond to make your stay as perfect as it can be. The Canary is also absolutely gorgeous, you feel like your in Seville as you lounge by their delicious rooftop terrace pool.The grounds are stunning too. Last time we got up graded to a suite, the beds are amazing , rooms are spotless,no dirty floors.... Read more

We stayed here with my parents & baby and took up 3 rooms. We've collectively decided that when we visit SB again, we won't be staying at this hotel and we won't be recommending it to any of our friends. There are plenty of other options in town that suit our budget. The pros: 1. If you really need to be close to State St., then this is just a few mins walk. 2. The valet team: super duper team of guys! Always smiling, friendly and helpful with my stroller. They deserve a raise. 3. The hydratin... Read more

We decided to come to Santa Barabara as a change to our usual summer visit to Ojai and this hotel did not disappoint! From valet, to front desk to complimentary wine hour, to room service, the service was nothing short of excellent. The hotel is decorated in lovely Santa Barbara style, it was perfect. The beds are amazing, what can I say, we will be returning. The hotel restaurant Finch and Fork was so great we ate there twice which is saying a lot since my hubby loves to try new places. I will ... Read more

We visited the Canary on our honeymoon, where travelled south down the PCH. We had a great welcome from the staff at Reception and I had my first experience of Californian valet parking, which I could certainly get used to. We'd had a long drive from Big Sur but felt immediately relaxed upon arrival to our beautiful room. The welcome wine and chocolate coated strawberries in our room was a lovely touch and our bed, despite needing a small stool to onto it, was very comfortable. The room, ... Read more

The first night on the road trip to San Fran, arrived very early, room was NT read, not unreasonably however they checked us in, took the luggage and gave directions to some of the local attractions The hotel is very near the main road (State St) and also the local fire station - no problem and the local bus terminus this can be noisy. We stayed on the fourth floor over looking the front of the hotel, rooms we of a good size with a large four poster bed, very nice. The staff could not do enou... Read more

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is lovely, the staff are friendly and efficient and the ambience is relaxed but classy. You can walk easily down State St to the beach in 15 mins. Our room was a good size with great beds and quiet despite facing the street. Housekeeping was thorough with some lovely complimentary touches. In fact these were available throughout our stay from a glass of local vino in the evening to fresh fruit juice and coffee in the lobby every morning. The roof terrace i... Read more

Stayed two nights in this very welcoming and stylish hotel. Staff very helpful and considerate and whole atmosphere is really relaxed and laid back, with wonderfully eclectic furnishings. Very efficient and friendly valet parking ($30/night plus tips) and reception were great for local advice, including restaurant recommendations as one of our party was a vegan. We had a wonderful room, a little bit of traffic noise in the morning as it was on the first floor and overlooked the road, but with ai... Read more
