Pocket Guide: 4 stars Hotels in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is a popular stopover on the coastal US Highway 101, 100 miles from LA. The oceanfront city is known as the American Riviera, thanks to its year-round Mediterranean climate, 300 days of sunshine and Spanish colonial architecture.

Stylish Four-Star Hotels in Santa Barbara

Many of Santa Barbara’s four-star hotels are built in the European Mission style with terracotta-red roofs and whitewashed walls. Most have swimming pools, modern restaurants and chic bars. Use Expedia to search through Santa Barbara’s four-star accommodation and you can choose one that has a full-service and bike hire, too.

Stay near Santa Barbara's Attractions

Book a hotel by the beach or downtown and you'll be within walking distance or a short bus ride from many of Santa Barbara main attractions. Visit the landmark 18th-century Mission Santa Barbara, just north of downtown, and see the colourful frescoes in the Santa Barbara County Courthouse or its 85-foot observation tower, with its sweeping views of the city and the ocean.

Santa Barbara's Wine Country

Santa Barbara County is renowned for its excellent Californian wines. Book a four-star hotel in one of the Santa Ynez Valley's main towns, such as Solvang or Los Olivos, and you can tour Santa Barbara wine country’s over 100 wineries. Your four-star hotel can book you on a guided bus trip wine tour and tasting, or you could add a bit more adventure to your wine tasting on a cycling tour. So leave the car at the hotel and head off on a Santa Barbara wine experience.

Shopping and Dining in Santa Barbara

Head to city's Historic State Street Plaza, a popular outdoor shopping mall with designer boutiques, high-street labels and quirky gift shops. Or find smaller, local designers and boutiques in La Arcada mall.

After a day of sightseeing, make your way back to your Santa Barbara hotel for a drink in the bar, or head out to the surrounding streets for a margarita or two in a local bar. Wherever you choose to stay, use Expedia to find the best four-star hotel in Santa Barbara to suit you.
