The Canary is such a beautiful, cozy hotel. It is beautifully decorated, large rooms with canopy beds. The roof top with the pool, hot tub and fireplace overlooking the mountains in one direction and the beach in another. Every day from 5 to 6pm there is free wine in the quaint lobby. the bar and restaurant was also excellent. Just a great place to stay.!!!!

Room Tip: When asked if we could get a break on the valet fee ($25. per day) the man could not but upgraded our room two levels...so just ask you never know!

My spouse and I spent a weekend in California and our first stop was the Canary Hotel. Since I am an Inner Circle member with Kimpton's loyalty program, I was able to experience this night for free under their "new hotels" perks. The free stay also included a $50 dining credit that we could use at their in-house restaurant (Finch and Fork). First off, the location is great - only a minute or so from the main freeway right in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. There is valet parking at the hotel for a fee, but we chose to park on the street for free a block away. We were given a nice JR suite upgrade at check in and a delicious welcome amenity of red-velvet cupcakes. The restaurant was delicious and all of the staff were fantastic and friendly. The bed in the room was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in (I travel about 70-80 nights a year in hotels)! You can walk to many shops and restaurants from the hotel and they have a partnership with the full-service gym next door for a great workout. Next time I am in town I won't hesitate to stay with Kimpton again at the Canary!

Room Tip: As for a goldfish if you're lonely - :)

We went to Santa Barbara to celebrate the end of a long medical journey, opting for the Canary because Kimpton has always met my desire for unique, intimate and interesting hotels. The Canary set a new standard for excellence: a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and welcoming staff, a great location, a stunning room, great views and oh, that rooftop deck! I stay at Kimptons because they value quality and service; the staff of the Canary exemplified -- and exceeded-- Kimpton's standards. I'll be back!

Stayed here for a short two night stay and should have extended at least one more night. Was here for our anniversary and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Spanish colonial meets hip and trendy. Rooftop pool and jacuzzi with a wonderful view of the Santa Inez mountains and ocean views. Complimentary wine hour! Too much to do in so little time.
