Hyatt Hotels: A Globally Recognised Brand
Founded in LA in 1957, Hyatt Hotels soon became the fastest-growing hotel chain in the US. Now with hundreds of hotels worldwide, Hyatt works under ten different brands, spanning the market from affordable to luxury, including Hyatt Centric, a boutique design-led four-star hotel with accommodation in Santa Barbara.
What to Expect at Santa Barbara’s Hyatt Hotel
One of Hyatt's more unique brands, Hyatt Centric offers design-led hotels with fresh, modern rooms, stylish cocktail bars and cool restaurants, as well as gyms and pools. Hyatt's Santa Barbara accommodation blends 1930s Spanish Colonial architecture with sleek, modern design and state-of-the-art facilities, plus comforts like a heated outdoor pool with a poolside bar, stylish cabanas and a fire pit, perfect for balmy summer nights.
Stay in a Hyatt Hotel in Santa Barbara
Book a room in a Hyatt Centric hotel in Santa Barbara, and you're in the heart of the action. You’ll be moments from the sands of East and West Beaches, and the giraffes in Santa Barbara Zoo.
It's also a seven-minute stroll from the famous Stearns Wharf, a historic wooden pier now home to chic seafood restaurants, hip waterfront bars and quirky gift shops. While you're here, pop into the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum Sea Center and get up-close-and-personal with Californian sea life in the 1,500-gallon glass tunnel tank.
For a culture fix, hire a bike and cycle north of downtown to the iconic Mission Santa Barbara. Known as Queen of the Missions, the pink-and-cream church dates back to the 1700s and has a museum and an art gallery. On your way back through downtown, nip into the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara and catch one of its rotating modern art exhibitions.
Santa Barbara's Nightlife
After a day on the beach or sightseeing, head back to your Hyatt hotel for a swim in the pool and a cocktail on the terrace, before heading out to the nearby Funk Zone. This colourful arts community between downtown and the beach is famous for its hip pop-up cafes and bars, modern-art galleries and urban wine tasting rooms.
