I am a fan of Kimpton, but The Canary has exceeded my expectations.
I just had a wonderful faultless stay. I was fortunate enough to get an upgrade to a fantastic corner room (Jr. Suite actually), which was spacious, beautifully decorated, and had panoramic views over Santa Barbara and to the ocean. The service was typical Kimpton, easygoing but efficient and gracious and welcoming. Valet Parking was easy and prompt, and the door staff was excellent. The rooftop pool area is a nice added touch. The location is in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, one block from State Street, which was nice. Turndown service was nicely done as well. The room itself was the nicest Kimpton room I have ever stayed in.
I continue to be impressed with the value Kimpton offers in all their properties; they have these four-star properties that somehow feel more like five-stars to me.
Unfortunately, I was born and raised with the hyper-critical gene; I am perpetually looking for fault, no matter how minor; but in this case, I had a perfect stay. There is nothing to criticize about this fantastic property.
