              • Great location and fantastic hotel. Beautiful interior design rooftop pool, excellent service and the bed was heavenly to sleep in.

                The front desk manager was self important rude, rooms were VERY expensive and small.

              • The location is great, just one block from state street and the staff is friendly. Beds are great, rooftop pool and lounge is very nice.

                A bit surprising for a hotel that is only 3 years old and rooms are small and bathrooms poorly designed.

              • Fabulous views, excellent Hotel and the common areas and lobby were also lovely. The staff were extremely helpful, finally our room was ready just before 6 pm and restaurant scene was convenient. The menu was well appointed, the pool was heated nicely.

                Not worth the money and less than wonderful service.

              • The rooftop pool area is beautiful and the view of Santa Barbara is fabulous, the hotel is in a perfect location, the staff is young, helpful and always friendly. Our room looked just like the room on the website and bar are great.

                Not worth the price and bad service. The mattresses are not the best either.

              • Great location for shopping and fabulous town. Very romantic boutique hotel and worth the money. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance and the lobby was spectacular too. Service was courteous, bathrooms were large and the food was superb.

                Staff unhelpful and the room was not available. Then the jacuzzi was not hot and unusable anyway.

              • Heavenly oasis perfect location, etc. A very nice gym is next store and just one block from state street. Beautiful hotel paper thin walls, the prices are reasonable and excellenct staff are very friendly. Suites several times,and that is very very comfortable, jacuzzi is spectacular and the food is delicious.

                ” while the room was nice, felt very small and did not have the sitting area, the front desk did not impress me, drinks were also very expensive.
