Another great experienceI stayed here earlier this year and was impressed; this time was just as great! Modern, clean room. Friendly staff. My friends and I spent time in the casino; had some great/fun Blackjack dealers!! Ate at the cafe twice and the food was great; only negative was slow service.

Concept hotel falls slightly shortThis is a fun hipster hotel that had a great vibe and pleasant feel. The rooms were fine, but we never received service nor clean towels. The restaurant and bar scene was fun, lots of good looking people and an interesting menu. But the wait staff was slow and inefficient. The scene around the hotel ...

It is somewhat basic and unmemorable. The complimentary continental breakfast is nice, but the atmosphere is so quiet and stiff. It ...

Beautiful hotel but very over priced, even for CA.The Fess Parker is a lovely hotel in a picturesque setting. Most things about it were wonderful, particularly the very friendly and helpful staff.

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.

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.
