My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It is a stunning hotel. I took a beautiful walk to Santa Barbara along the beach. There are 4 charging stations for Tesla EVs. I could go on and on. The only problem is that there are train tracks right next to the property. The first night, 3 trains...

The hotel is really stunning, its very lush and garden like. We stayed for a weekend after the holidays and was so relaxing. The room was very nice, but it's a very dark place at night and hard to see around there. I wish they would install more lighting around the property as it can be dead black and unable...

Old Hollywood, yet completely up to date in the the Santa Barbara style... it is completely unique. Service was stellar! Even in the "Biblical" rain storm... the staff went out of their way to accommodate and make our unexpected add on night perfect. Furnishings are beautiful with attention to detail in each room. Having the ocean across the street was...

No matter what season it is, this spot is divine! We come for dinner and drinks when passing through and always find it incredibly nice. It's elegant without being ostentatious and the architecture is remarkable. Walk the beach in front and forget your troubles. The doormen, desk clerks and servers are all kind and professional. Enjoy!

Lets face it this is the Biltmore with rich tradition and history so its only fitting that Four Seasons branded this hotel. Its professionally run and has a certain charm that runs through the beachfront property. You know many famous people have stayed in some of these marvelous suites.
