JHutchinsonFerryHill, Nothing beats a great breakfast at the Finch & Fork. My favorite is the chicken chilaquiles or the egg white omelette loaded with great vegetables. I'm so glad you found the Santa Barbara charm apparent in our service culture- it's hard not to be so friendly and welcoming when you have such a beautiful hotel in this top notch...

Enjoyed relaxing by the roof top pool, with panoramic views of Santa Barbara area. All staff very helpful and friendly. Enormous rooms with huge beds. Quirky design and decor, comfortable, clean. Perfect location to be in the middle of everything, right beside the main street and shops and restaurants.

This is such a great place! Clean, posh boutique with everything you need. Don't stay anywhere else. Canopy beds are comfortable, room is modern with an old world flair. Fitness center is next door and provides for a great workout. Walking distance of shops and restaurants.

This is a really nice hotel. Luxuriously appointed, well kept, and with stellar service. All of the Kimptons are good, but this is a cut above. It's great for business, but would also be a nice place for a getaway. The location couldn't be better.
