Great location & amenities

Would recommend Wed, Sep 2, 2015
We went for our 10y anniversary and left two kids at home and this was a very romantic hotel experience. We loved the wine our downstairs each day. We loved the rooftop pool and lounging area even in the evening. And we loved the complementary bikes that we could ride down to the beach. Overall was a perfect weekend away, but a little pricey in my opinion.

Great getaway

Would recommend Sun, Aug 31, 2014
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.

Dining

Finch and Fork was excellent, love the farm-to-table concept.

Really sums up my stay, the rooms were exactly that, staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant down stairs has a great selection plus the food is very good. Highly recommend

Nightlife hint

Leave your car parked for the night. State street is walking distance from the hotel, 2 blocks away is the Paseo Nuevo mall.

Excellent last minute stay!

Would recommend Tue, May 13, 2014
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

Would recommend Fri, Apr 25, 2014
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.

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!
