Boutique Hotels in Santa Barbara

Welcome packages, cozy restaurants and individually designed rooms: Thoughtful touches like these are all hallmarks of some of the best boutique hotels in Santa Barbara. At Orbitz, we know that sometimes you want more from your hotel than just a place to lay your head—you want a sense of place. Boutique hotels take all the things you love about Santa Barbara and incorporate them throughout your stay.

Less is truly more at Santa Barbara boutique hotels

You won’t find hundreds of rooms, meeting halls and multiple pools at these hotels. But you will find attentive service, elegant furnishings and charming rooms. You may be surprised how they can fit all this class in such a small package. You’ll be even more surprised that it doesn’t have to bust your budget: When you book through Orbitz, you can select from Santa Barbara small luxury hotels at all price ranges.

A little of this and a lot of that

Santa Barbara luxury boutique hotels stand apart from their larger counterparts, balancing the right amount of privacy with attentive services. Rooms are usually one-of-a kind, unlike anything you’ll find at your usual hotel. Besides a unique and well-appointed room, you’ll have amenities similar to those bigger siblings, but on a more intimate scale.

What really sets apart boutique hotels is the service. The staff will treat you like a welcome guest and share their knowledge of Santa Barbara with you. Looking for amazing adventures or the best place to unwind? You’ll have expert advice right at your front desk. And when you return to your room, your turndown service will be spotless. It’s the little things that count at Santa Barbara boutique hotels.
