    We've stayed here a few times after discovering it in 2010. You're not near the water; however, impeccably situated within walking distance to a variety of first class eating establishments and shopping. Accommodating staff and valet, you'll feel at home at Hotel Santa Barbara.

    I don't recall, something like 3:00pm and 11:00am (maybe even noon) but I would suggest you just call the hotel directly.
