$293 – Casually Elegant Santa Barbara Stay near the Beach
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Deal
Sneak away for a coastal escape and find yourself pedaling a cruiser along the shore or hunting for seashells at East Beach, situated just across the street. Santa Barbara is known for being pricey, and with a location this central, it's no wonder these upgraded rooms typically go for over $512 per night.

The Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara is housed in a historic Spanish Colonial building, maintaining the property’s connection to the past while updating the interiors for modern travelers. The hotel was constructed in the 1930s with white stucco walls and red tile roofs directly across Cabrillo Boulevard from East Beach. The colonial style continues indoors where public spaces are decorated with wrought-iron chandeliers, Spanish tiles and vintage black-and-white photos.
Private accommodations are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, Keurig coffeemakers, and of course, the plush beds for which the Hyatt brand is known. Guests have the choice of rooms with one king, one queen or two queen beds and can upgrade to lodgings with private balconies facing the ocean or mountains. Oceanfront suites have bedrooms separated from the living areas that are spacious enough to entertain en suite and are equipped with Bose surround sound. Families can spread out in the Santa Barbara Houses located on a residential street near the lobby with a private parking lot.
Guests have access to the 24-hour fitness center which looks out at the Pacific Ocean and also offers headphones, chilled water and towels. Those looking for a seaside sweat session can jog on the nearby trails or rent bicycles from the concierge. The pooldeck features an oceanfront pool, open year-round, a hot tub and poolside bar. Open until 11 p.m. most nights, Mar Vista serves tapas, cocktails and local craft beers, making it the perfect place to unwind after a day in the sun. The Spanish-inspired Marbella Restaurant serves tapas and seafood with the option to dine indoors or on the waterfront terrace.
Guests only have to walk for five minutes to reach the Santa Barbara Zoo while Santa Barbara Downtown is 10 minutes away by car. The hotel is one and a half miles from Stearns Wharf and three miles from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
