"Excellent location"
Depending on what experience you want in Santa Barbara Kimpton Canary is a great place to stay. We were looking for a place close to good places to eat and easy walking distance to beach. It was perfect. Loved the staff and love the location. Finch and Fork is great as well to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Dinner was excellent - just as good as The Lark in my opinion for food quality.

"Charming hotel with European feel"
There were some exceptional characteristics of this hotel, although it was dated. It had a unique charm by retaining some of its original features like an old fashioned elevator that still was operational and bathrooms that were original and well maintained. It offered fresh squeezed OJ, good coffee and wrapped pastries in the morning. If the pastries were fresh baked it would have been a perfect alternative to the typical canned fruit and make your own waffle. The common areas and rooms had an authentic elegance. The staff was well trained and helpful. It was nice to be at an establishment that didn't feel like a clone of the popular chain hotels. Our room was quiet, but I can't speak for those facing the highway. My only complaints are that there was an additional charge for parking and the valet was not available in the late evening. The restaurant was closed and may be in the renovation process. There was an outdoor walkway form the main building with lobby to the other side of the hotel.

"Quaint Hotel"
Exterior is beautiful. Room we had was a tad small for 2 adults and a 7yo. Not enough space to move around, put luggage, etc. Bathroom mirror was tiny, as well as the vanity mirror and barely any lighting where vanity table is, so it was hard to put on makeup. We used the A/c, and it was loud but not too bothersome, for us at least. We managed to sleep through it. We could hear the Girls staying in the next room, but maybe they we're being louder than normal. Amenities are good. Very nice to have complimentary champagne in fridge. Location good, Can walk to harbor. Nice continental breakfast. Cheese and wine in late afternoon, then Milk and cookies in the evening. Very nice touches. Though we may not have liked the room we had, we would like stay in a larger room next time we are in the area. Cute hotel and friendly staff.

    Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara has a long and fascinating European history which dates back to the 1600s when the first Spanish missionaries arrived in California. Thanks to this Mediterranean influence, Santa Barbara has many iconic terracotta-red tiled and whitewashed buildings, a warm, year-round climate and a Spanish colonial appeal.

    Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    A hundred miles up the coast from LA and sandwiched between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is a popular weekend destination for the LA crowd who come to stay in its chic historic hotels.

    Head to the stylish suburb of Montecito or for trendy Spanish-style inns, or to downtown Santa Barbara for sprawling 19th-century villas and upmarket B&Bs in Spanish Colonial Revival-style homes.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Historic Attractions

    First stop on your history visit to Santa Barbara has to be the Mission Santa Barbara, just north of downtown. Known as the Queen of the Missions, this beautiful pink-and-white church has a fascinating museum depicting missionary life in the 18th century, and stacks of Chumash artwork from the earlier settlers.

    From the Mission, it's a short hop to El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park. Built by the Spanish in 1782, the four presidios played a vital role in Spain's occupation of Alta California. Learn more about Santa Barbara's early years in the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, which is tucked away in a stunning cloistered courtyard downtown.

    Shopping and Dining in Santa Barbara

    Renowned for its wealth of rich and famous residents, Santa Barbara has a fantastic shopping scene. Head to the Historic State Street Plaza, a pedestrianised open-air mall where designer stores line up next to hip surf labels and high-street shops.

    After a day of sightseeing or shopping, retire to your Santa Barbara historic hotel for a drink in the bar, before heading out to explore downtown's many SoCal or Mexicana restaurants, chic cocktail lounges and wine bars around Lower State Street.

    From 19th-century hacienda-style guesthouses to plush hotels built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, use Expedia to find the best deals on historic hotels for your next stay in Santa Barbara.
