We upgraded on arrival and were thrilled to find out we had a private outdoor hot tub, however it was duke warm even after requesting it be turned up...hours later still warm never hot. The room was spacious and the location is perfect.

Excellent birthday trip for my wife
Amazing stay! Room was really nice bed was super comfortable. Bathroom was nice, shower didn’t drain well but they fixed it for us ASAP within minutes of us letting them know of the issue. The hot tub was great! Pool was heated! Food was very good! I hope to be back again! Especially if they give me a room discount!

Four Seasons Santa Barbara is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed. Fabulous room. Loved the gas fireplace. Excellent helpful staff. Had a great dinner at Tydes restaurant. Enjoyed a walk on the beach in the morning. Great for couples whether a new relationship or a long term marriage such as ours.

The Amazing Biltmore
Great service and comfort at The Biltmore. It's a bit off the beaten path (relative to "downtown" Santa Barbara, but that is a mere quibble. It's a beautiful property with amazing views. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The restaurants were quite good, albeit very expensive. Another amazing thing about the Santa Barbara area was how extensive their bike paths were. We rode for miles and miles around the area and rarely had to encounter traffic; even when we did, the drivers were remarkably respectful for bikers.
