Many Thanks to Vanessa for sending up chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling wine in honor of my 23rd wedding anniversary. It was a special moment to receive a special treat. I highly recommend the Kimpton Canary Hotel. The location is so close to State Street and the Santa Barbara Pier. The rooms are small but have everything needed for a...

Santa Barbara Canary hotel is okay. It's way too expensive for what you get room wise,service wise & location wise. It's just not good enough for the price. There are no "perks" or "extras" that make up for small rooms,bathrooms,loud,urban traffic noise & mediocre service. The dog at the front desk was fun. The restaurant was trying very hard to...

WeRTrippin, I'm sad to hear you didn't find or get exposed to all that makes the Canary so special, from the complimentary local wine at arrival to the daily hosted complimentary wine hour, our included high speed internet, the locally roasted coffee and more. It's disappointing to hear about the service- we like to think of our service as the...

A great hotel. Staff first class. Super location close to the town centre. Bustling atmosphere in the hotel. Lovely rooftop terrace & pool. Our room was not the biggest but really nice. We will definitely be back to Santa Barbara & this hotel.

The location, amenities and staff of The Canary make this hands down the best hotel I have stayed at in Santa Barbara. The restaurant on property is delicious, as is the room service and catering options, and the beds are some of the most comfortable I've slept on. The only negative is the showers are narrow and lend themselves to...

My husband and I loved our stay at The Canary. It is charming. The four poster king bed was comfortable. We enjoyed wine on the roof top lounge/pool area. Views there are stunning. We're also glad that we had dinner at The Finch & Fork. The food and service exceeded our expectations.

On arrival at the car park entrance we left to do nothing, the car valets dealt with the car and all the luggage while we checked in and shown to the room, the luggage was there minutes later.

I enjoyed my weekend at the Kimpton Canary. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom supplies were also of good quality. While at the deck pool, the staff came around with ice cream. That was a nice surprise. The FInch and Fork restaurant was also very good. Honestly, try their French toast! Great stay.
