I found that they have multiple buildings on different streets and are not showen at time of booking. So call to verify location of room and make sure you get what you are looking for. Pool area was great and the main hotel is located right by the beach.

The staff at the Hyatt Centric in Santa Barbara truly went above and beyond, and made our trip celebrating our 1-year wedding anniversary the perfect weekend away. Our room was on the third floor, and had the most incredible ocean view. We arrived at night, so when we first walked in we thought the noise was traffic from a large...

It's my fault. Buyer beware. I booked in the evening after a hard day's work and didn't pay attention. As I was booking the room, for a few more dollars I noticed I could get a room with a balcony. I am accustom that when a room has a balcony it also has a view of the ocean. The Balcony...

The parking situation is annoying Pay the fee or park on the street Once you park your car on the street you walk in to see many empty parking spaces including an underground garage. This is a historic hotel with a great location.

We stayed for 1 night on our trip, the room wasn't great for the price we payed, quite dated and the air con was faulty and once reported there was no engineer to come and fix it. The room was clean and the valet parking worked really well so no issues in that sense. Maybe if we had stayed longer...

We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon and the staff could not have been friendlier or more professional. We were greeted with a gift of champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries. Our king size, ocean view room was very clean and nice. View of the beach was awesome, too bad it was raining, not the hotel's fault tho....

The hotel has amazing views of the ocean and the staff is helpful.The only main issue is that the rooms are old and the carpet is worn. I hope that they redo the hotel soon since the location is the best
