A classic luxury brand offering the ultimate in beachside indulgence.
Luxury has never looked so, well ... Californian. This elegant and yet laid-back hotel is the crown jewel of Santa Barbara's ocean properties. The secluded location is far from the clamor of the local waterfront, and there's enough to do right on your doorstep that you need never leave. For starters, Montecito's long, lovely Butterfly Beach is right across the street. There's no question that this 1927 landmark property offers one of the few grand, old-fashioned hotel experiences in the state. With its low-profile Spanish-Mediterranean appearance, stately lobby, broad lawns and stunning locale, it captures the essence of upscale and historic Santa Barbara. Guest rooms and secluded cottages are showcases of Spanish Colonial style. One of the property’s most unique features is that guests receive access to the “members-only” Coral Casino Beach & Cabana Club, located across the street. On-site Bella Vista restaurant serves Italian-influenced California coastal cuisine. Just a short drive away are the city's many attractions, such as pedestrian-friendly State Street, which is dotted with gourmet shops and pubs.
