I don't know where to begin with this property. We were upgraded to the Santa Cruz Suite, which was large enough to live in. The property is located directly across the street from the beach. We had breakfast at Marbella and it was very good. Enough cannot be said about the staff. From the beginning of the trip through the...

Loud and you can hear slamming of the doors and walking upstairs. Didn't sleep a wink. Nicely complained that night twice, in morning and afternoon. Management blamed me for requesting a room with easy access to outside. I'm a Platinum member and declined the nicer beach view since I had a puppy with me and wanted him to go outside...

This hotel and its staff went out of its way to make my anniversary special. They upgraded us to a magnificent suite and sent chocolate covered strawberries and wine. The suite was spectacular with views of the ocean from every room of the 850 square foot suite.

We had a great 4-night stay at the Hyatt last week! The service was exceptional with all of the staff being very helpful and courteous, from the moment we arrived until the day we left. We especially want to thank Christian and John at the front desk and Luis who carried our bags and showed us all of the features...

My wife and I took a 3 night trip to Santa Barbara and had a wonderful time. We usually stay at Hyatt Houses but had an opportunity to stay at the Centric for a discounted special rate. The location across the street from the beach is great but it is a little far from the downtown area if you're not...

Loved this hotel right across the ocean. Parking was a bit on the expensive side at $28, which we did not know about going in as we had booked through a third party website. The rates are posted at the entrance, but when you check in at midnight, tired from a twelve hour drive, you really are not looking for...

Me and my family stayed here in August 2012 for 3 nights, and it was easily my favourite place to stay whilst on our West Coast road trip! I loved Santa Barbara. The whole vibe, the beach and the weather was fantastic luckily. This hotel was great, we found it so easily from the Pacific Coast Highway. The sidewalk towards...

The hotel was rebranded, but not remodeled. It is very tired and needs significant renovations. As a Hyatt Diamond memeber it was below average and so was he service. I would look at other options in Santa Barbara.

Good day and Thank you very much for your loyalty to Hyatt. We were disheartened to read that you felt as though our service was below average for the Hyatt Brand. This is typically unlike us as we normally receive great feedback regarding the quality of our associates and the service that they provide. We do thank you for your...
