Situated just 5 minutes from midtown Santa Barbara, this Southern California hotel is a short distance from beautiful local beaches and favourite attractions including the Mission Santa Barbara, the Museum of Natural History and the Red Tile Walking Tour. It is the perfect place where to combine a business trip with sun-soaked vacation. Guests will be just a short drive from Antioch University, the Brooks Institute, UCSB and a number of corporate offices. After a day of meetings or working on that perfect tan they can head for some great shopping at nearby State Street and the Le Cumbre Shopping Plaza. If there is not enough time for the beach one can always settle for the large, heated outdoor swimming pool or the relaxing hot tub. For pampering, there is nothing better than a massage treatment. When the time for dinning comes the full-service onsite restaurant is the place to go.
