Romantic getaway or sophisticated business retreat, the Canary Hotel offers you both. Attention was given to every detail of what has become one of the most desirable Santa Barbara hotels. Located in the city center, Canary Hotel is the only luxury boutique hotel located in historic downtown. From five stories above the center of the city of Santa Barbara you can relax by the roof-top pool complete with views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, and the Santa Ynez Mountains.

This sophisticated boutique hotel is perfectly located within walking distance for shopping at the luxury retailers, hip boutiques and offers easy access to some of the finest wineries in Santa Barbara. The Canary Hotel offers something for everyone, even those with very specific tastes.

Note Bene
The hotel's outdoor terrace and rooftop pool otherwise known as El Cielo offers the perfect intimate setting for private events and weddings. Rising up above the red-tiled roofs of Santa Barbara, the 4,000-square-foot space enjoys exclusive status as the highest rooftop hotel venue in the city of Santa Barbara. Here, guests can enjoy some of the city's best views, along with a mission-style fireplace, a Jacuzzi and a pool, creating a very intimate and inviting atmosphere.
Banquets & Meetings
Five separate meeting rooms accommodate between 20 and 160 for private functions. A sixth function space accommodating 150 for a reception is the Roof Terrace, El Cielo with an outdoor fireplace and spectacular views of Santa Barbara.
Fine Dining On Site
From the reception area, an arched entry with a decoratively painted ceiling leads to 31 West, an 80-seat restaurant with its own street side entrance and an adjoining 40-seat bar. In this space, banquettes take on the dome-topped shape that is a familiar pattern in Andalucian design and substantial armchairs that are generously spaced for private conversation flank tables. Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus in the restaurant take on a predominant American slant, drawing from Santa Barbara's fresh seafood, vegetables, produce and specialty foods for bursts of bold flavor. Intended to be a power breakfast and lunch spot and a destination restaurant in the evening, 31 West showcases wine country cuisine at its best - simply and creatively prepared and served.
