Wonderful location and what a view from the pool!

Posted Nov 7, 2016
Pros: Being so close to State Street. We walked to restaurants, to shops and to the pier. The view from the pool and hot tub on the roof was breath-taking.
Cons: Nothing
The room was very comfortable and the staff incredibly friendly.

WOW!!!!!!!

Posted Oct 21, 2016
Pros: The hotel staff are very approachable and friendly
Cons: Cannot come up with anything
I cannot think of a better place to celebrate a 20 year anniversary. From the moment we walked into the hotel, the hospitality was phenomenal. The hotel is situated in a great location, which is very accessible for walking to eateries and shopping.

Marvelous night for a moon dance!

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Canary is one of our favorite places to stay in SB. Love the rooftop pool and deck. Incredible views of city and skyline. Staff is very friendly and supportive. Great bar/restaurant. Nice central location. We took Uber to dinner, saw Van Morrison at the Bowl, and walked back to hotel.

This was an excellent hotel

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Location: The country court house and the Mission were especially interesting.
Everything was excellent, but I felt the $35 valet fee per night was a little extreme.

Absolutely stunning room

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Absolutely beautiful room, lobby, and even the common bathrooms! Walking distance to all the shops and dining in Santa Barbara. We will be back for sure.

Great place to escape!

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: Great rooms with the most comfortable bed.
Cons: Room service and its staff.
Location: The hotel is close to State Street and everything you need or want is on State Street. The Mission is beautiful. Great restful get away.
Beautiful hotel. The staff during check in (Vanessa) was great. She explained everything and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. We were told we would have French less coffee each morning and it happened the first day and by the third day we did not energy get coffee even though we water an hour. The second day we got regular coffee with no spoon to stir in cream. We don't ask for much but don't offer if you can't deliver!!!!

Hello! Thank you so much for coming to see us, and for leaving us such a kind review. I know Vanessa will be quite happy to hear that you enjoyed her help during your stay. I am frustrated to hear about your experience with the complimentary french press for our suites. I absolutely agree with you, and assure you that we certainly expect to deliver. We will review this with our staff and make sure it doesnt happen again. Thank you again for your time, and we'll see you next time! Regards, Joseph Eames Director of Rooms Canary Santa Barbara

A beautiful hotel with great amenities

Posted Sep 19, 2016
My wife and I stayed here for a mini-moon. This was our first time in a boutique hotel and I must say that we absolutely loved it! The room looked like it was straight out of a pottery barn catalog. They had everything you could ask for. In the morning they had a gourmet coffee bar with biscotti and syrups; and during the day they had an ice tea and lemonade bar with different syrups as well. We can't say enough about how great this hotel was.

P&A, Aw thanks! It is always so nice to hear such kind words about our hotel. I'm truly thankful that you enjoyed those little extra touches like the local coffee station (roasted two blocks away!), iced tea, etc. We like to have some fun with our guests, so it's great to know you liked it! Thanks again for visiting us, and we'll see you again soon! Regards, Joseph Eames Director of Rooms Canary Santa Barbara
