Great getaway

My sister and I stayed in a one bedroom suite for a few days in August with my 5 month old daughter and we had a wonderful time. All of the staff from the valet to the front desk to housekeeping to the restaurant were friendly and helpful. The hotel was very accommodating with respect to the baby - they first brought a crib to our room but when we realized it would be a tight squeeze, they replaced it with a pack 'n play (no extra charge for either), and when we needed ice packs for the formula bag frozen, it was no problem. We enjoyed the pool, Finch and Fork restaurant and the complimentary wine tasting happy hour in the lobby. The location around the corner from State Street is great with everything in easy walking distance, over 3 days we never used our car. I have always liked this hotel, but since it has become a Kimpton hotel, the service has definitely gone up a notch. I highly recommend the Canary, you will not be disappointed.

lovely place with beautiful decor

I have stayed in many different places in Santa Barbara. This was the best location as you are downtown where all the restaurants are. It's easy to get to the beach on the shuttle so you never have to drive. The roof top pool was great!

Great Location, Beautiful Hotel

The staff was extremely friendly from the moment we pulled up. The room was beautiful, I felt like I was staying in a house that had been personally decorated. The canopy bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The rooftop has a beautiful pool. Go early if you want a seat, there were several people waiting when I went mid afternoon. The only disappointment in staying at the Canary was the roof deck was reserved for private events Friday night and Saturday afternoon/night so we couldn't enjoy it. The room service was great! I didn't eat at the hotel but did go for a drink and it was a very nice place.

Canary Hotel

The hotel was wonderful. The feel, the decor, the staff and especially the pool. The bathroom was poorly designed, and did not have a fan. It also had bad lighting.
