Overview

It would be easy to check into the Kimpton Canary Hotel and feel like you've been transported to the Mediterranean. From the terracotta roofing to the wrought iron detailing, the 360-degree mountain and ocean views, the hotel could easily fit right into Old World Spanish wine country.

There’s a rooftop pool with an adjacent pergola and an outdoor fireplace with cozy seating. Additional details like four-poster beds, Spanish-tiled bathrooms and hardwood floors add to the Andalusian feel.

Hotel amenities are firmly rooted in modern times. The popular on-site restaurant, Finch & Fork, is a locavore’s dream, with the bulk of the menu items sourced from within the Santa Barbara region. The hotel also offers a daily wine tasting hour with a sommelier on hand.

After happy hour, walk one block to lively State Street, a long stretch filled with shopping corridors, specialty retailers and restaurants. The street extends all the way to the oceanfront wharf, about a 20-minute walk.

We've stayed in several Kimptons over the years, and this did not disappoint. Really excellent staff -- from the valets to the front desk to the servers we encountered refilling beverages. Having coffee available in the morning and water throughout the day is really welcome (plus the tap water in Santa Barbara doesn't taste good). In addition, since it was the holidays, they offered hot chocolate throughout the day and delicious hot cider with the nightly wine hour (you could even spike it if you cared to). Location was convenient in the heart of town -- we walked everywhere. Though there was no view (we faced a parking garage), it was quiet and the value more than made up for the view.

Availability of Gold's Gym right next door was great. Yoga classes -- both at the gym as well as the weekly rooftop at the hotel (moved to a ballroom since it was still chilly in the morning) -- were surprisingly solid, and it was great to have the yoga mat in the room. Bathroom was well appointed and spacious -- separate tub and shower -- however the louvered door made it feel less private.

Overall, very nice, but requested a light sunny room and it was somewhat dark

We enjoyed our stay at the Kimpton Canary. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially the bell staff. We brought our bikes and they stored them and brought them up for us when we were ready to ride! The room was decorated nicely and the finch and fork restaurant had good food.

Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Loved having access to the Golds gym next door. Fabulous local wine tasting each evening. We stayed in winter and loved having the rooftop jacuzzi.

We enjoyed our stay, but would not have gone without the Travelzoo pricing. The furniture in the room was showing it’s wear and tear, and at the normal rate, including a AAA discount, was WAY overpriced. The staff is GREAT, and responded quickly to all our needs. The best part was the array of dogs at the hotel, all sizes, as the hotel is VERY pet friendly. The location is excellent.
