Kimpton Canary Hotel
Few nights in Santa Barbara
Fab hotel to arrive at on our journey from San Fran to LA. We were given a really lovely room and the staff were great. Only area we weren’t so happy about was the hotel restaurant. We don’t eat red meat (for health reasons) and sometimes just fancy a vegetarian option. There was very little on the menu - it was a case of mixing and matching ingredients from other dishes which felt like a real compromise. There’s a market for customers wanting healthier options which the hotel is missing out on.

Very Good8.0
California Road trip
Santa Barbara was a stop over on our California road trip. The hotel was well located for restaurants and shops. The decor is very Spanish and colourful. The roof terrace and swimming pool were a great spot to relax. We had a corner room with two sets of French doors. The room was not over large but was nicely furnished and had everything we needed.

4* Hotel With 5*+ Quality and Service
I stayed at the Canary at the beginning of February and can't fault a thing. The hotel itself is amazing and it couldn't be more convenient for downtown Santa Barbara or access to sightseeing. It's a 4* hotel with 5*+ quality and service. Every person I came into contact with was fantastic (especially Roxanne on the front desk). Food - I can honestly say that the food at the Finch and Fork was outstanding! I went there for 2 out of the 3 nights and can highly recommend the chicken wings, scallops and rib-eye. Special shout out to Brett who added to the whole experience - he's amazing and an asset to the brand. I can't wait for my next trip!
