Really lovely retreat!

The Canary had beautiful rooms, fresh and spacious! The bed was luxuriously comfortable and every staff member we met was gracious and attentive. Would definitely stay no where else in Santa Barbara!

Excellent last minute stay!

Stayed at this hotel last minute without knowing all too much about it due to the fact they offered electric car charging - as soon as we got to the hotel it was surprise after surprise and an amazing quick vacation! Staff could not have been better, clean hotel, lots of perks (bike rentals, EV charging and reduced rate parking, next door gym access, rooftop pool and hot tub). Definitely staying here again!

visit to Santa Barbara

The Hotel was everything we expected. A smaller hotel with a friendly flavor and atmosphere. Great location just a block off State Street and in the middle of great Santa Barbara retail stores. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Comfortable room with the important amenities. My wife and I would recommend this hotel to anyone that enjoys good service and a relaxing stay.

Excellent Hotel

What a great Hotel. I have stated in hundreds of hotels and this one stands out big time. Highly recommend this hotel. Meaghan at the front desk is a complete pro and almost overly accommodating. Without a doubt I will be returning to the Canary!

Gem in the heart of downtown

This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. The location in downtown Santa Barbara is fantastic, but the rooftop deck makes you feel anywhere but. In the morning I love walking to Stearns Wharf and back.The staff is super friendly and helpful. It is always my first choice whenever I visit.

Great Spot for a couples weekend

The hotel is in a perfect spot just off State Street. You are able to walk to just about any kind of shopping or dining you may desire. The waterfront is a reasonable walk under 15 minuets and taxi's if you desire are easily available. The staff is super friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. The only thing I wish the rooms has was a patio or balcony, which none do.

Beautiful hotel in a great location

Canary is a beautiful hotel with gorgeous decoration at the heart of Santa Barbara downtown. Few steps away from dinning and shops and historic landmarks. Very nice and clean room. Friendly staff. And a great roof top pool.
