Book Your Stay

Santa Barbara’s idyllic setting has made it a favorite of celebrities for decades, with the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bridges, Rob Lowe, Kevin Costner, and Jack Johnson calling it home. And they’re in good company in this art and culture-infused town. Stages host everything from casual summer concerts to modern musical performances, and events and festivals dance through the streets all summer long.

Get around by car or trolley; walk from one moment to the next or catch an open-air ride in a pedicab. Sink your toes into the sand along miles of pristine coastline. Plan a trip to the region’s world-renowned wine country or sample award-winning wines in tasting rooms downtown. Or be spontaneous and wander under a nearby portico for an escape into Mediterranean-style relaxation. This is Santa Barbara. It’s easy to be here. And now, it’s easy for you to get here.
