Hotel at a Glance: Santa Barbara House at Hyatt Santa Barbara
Hyatt Santa Barbara’s Santa Barbara House is fresh off an extensive renovation that packed the property with modern amenities and stylish guest rooms. As a guest of the Santa Barbara House (located a couple blocks from the hotel), you’ll still have access to many of the Hyatt’s perks. Both properties are within easy reach of the city’s rocky beaches.
Make yourself at home in a comfy Santa Barbara king or double-queen room, where you can lounge on a plush bed and watch flicks on a 47-inch flat-screen TV.

Santa Barbara, California: Charming Beachfront Town Nicknamed “The American Riviera”
The sprawling 400-mile stretch of California coastline between San Francisco and Los Angeles is freckled with scenic, laid-back beach towns. Yet Santa Barbara stands out among the pack, thanks to its prime location: it’s sandwiched between Pacific beaches to the west and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the east. With a population of 90,000, it’s urban, but not overly so—the charming downtown corridor along State Street is a steady parade of mom-and-pop shops, cafes, bars, art galleries, and movie theaters.
A subtle Mediterranean influence graces most buildings: think red-tile roofs, stucco facades, and Moorish-style arches. The climate is breezy and warm year-round, providing an environment for lush tropical foliage to thrive; it’s easy to see why the city bills itself as “The American Riviera.”
To see where it all started, head to the historic Old Mission Santa Barbara, founded in 1786 by a Franciscan friar. Docents offer guided tours of the mission, which houses an art gallery, Native American artifacts, and period furniture. Around the corner, Mission Canyon is a popular trailhead for several hikes in the front range of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Try the 3.5-mile round-trip trek to Inspiration Point for scenic views of the Santa Barbara coastline and the Channel Islands off the coast.
