On the way to Los Angles from San Francisco we decided to stay one night in Santa Barbara. We drove into the city and found this excellent hotel, unfortunately we only stayed one night. The rooms was small but perfect, clean and cozy. I have the feeling it is newly renovated or new built. The price for the room was... More

Loved this hotel. The staff was absolutely wonderful -- every last individual with no exceptions. Our concierge, Ciela, went so far as to find nearby restaurants that could accommodate my son, who was still recovering from jaw surgery and had a serious dairy allergy besides. She researched menus and came back with some excellent suggestions. The valet staff (and Ciela... More

Walking distance to the warf and downtown. Front desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly! The room was clean and had a nice atmosphere. The shower stall is a little small and awkward but it didn't bother either of us.

Spent one night in Santa Barbara and decided to stay in Hotel Indigo. Indigo is perfect walking distance to the Funk Zone and the wharf. Despite the size of the room, it fit our needs.

The person at the desk was very helpful with recommendations and provided us with map of the area. She was very welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but it was by the train station which interrupted our sleep during the night.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Indigo for 1 night, visiting her brother who was in town for business. The hotel has art all over the place like a museum, with descriptions of the artist and the work. The staff were all extremely helpful and informative.

As a longtime Hilton Diamond member, the bar is already set pretty high with regards to my expectations for a typical hotel experience. The location, hotel charm and especially the staff far exceeded those expectations. Can't think of a single negative. We will definitely be returning on a regular basis.

Loved the hotel. Good vibes and great location. Staff recommended excellent breakfast choices and happily told me about the rest of the area. The hotel is very close to the strip and access to food/bars was easy. Would have liked an elevator!
