Besides the fact that the property is spectacularly situated in the hills of Santa Barbara, that the view is breathtaking, the neighborhood quiet, the propery impeccably maintained, luxurious rooms that are exquisite and immaculate, the STAFF was over the top for service. From the moment I arrived I was greeted with warm and impeccable attention. I was treated like the most important person staying there. It was a seamless transition of perfection from valet throughout my stay. I particularly liked the way my named was used by all staff. Personal attention combined with a beautiful property make for a a perfect hotel stay!
