Imbued with the history of the century-old Hotel Virginia, the Holiday Inn Express Santa Barbara stands as a symbol of the city’s rich heritage and legacy of enduring hospitality. We offer the quality, convenience and value that only Holiday Inn Express provides and the charm of a legendary Historic Landmark property, complete with outstanding service; unique decorative touches, such as Malibu and Catalina tile-work, exposed brick walls, and wrought iron railings; elegant, pet friendly guest rooms; and first-class amenities, such as complimentary WIFI, breakfast, bike rentals, and gym passes.
Located in the heart of downtown, we’re steps from State Street’s world-class dining and entertainment, as well as minutes from peaceful beaches, the surf-worthy Pacific Ocean, and major area employers, making us a perfect choice for business and leisure travelers alike. Our proximity to Historic Old Town Santa Barbara places you at the center of this exciting city, and yet we offer a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle on our relaxing, open-air balcony and in our comfortable, spacious guest rooms, which feature triple-sheeted beds, HD TVs, and more. We hope you’ll join us in the heart of Santa Barbara!
