Ideal for walking around Santa Barbara

Guests love the warm and professional staff

The rooftop is the icing on the cake

With panoramic views over Santa Barbara, the rooftop area with its pool and cocktail service will ensure you are fully indulged on your vacation. Known as Rooftop Perch, this is the ideal place to relax, swim and unwind as you soak up the sun and the Californian vista.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms are a let-down

Unfortunately, a very small number of guests feel that although the rooms at Kimpton Canary are undeniably beautifully designed, they are smaller than they were expected.

Noise can be an issue

A small proportion of guests who stay at this hotel have mentioned that they were disturbed by noise from the surrounding streets and occasionally from weddings being held at the hotel.

No free Wi-Fi seems dated

For guests who do not wish to sign up to Kimpton's rewards scheme, Wi-Fi remains a chargeable service. Some guests felt this was a rather dated approach to this service, which is often readily available in hotels.
