This was my very first “solo-cation” and first time to California (so obviously SB too) and it could not have gone any better. I’ll admit, I was a little nervous traveling so far away without my better half, but those fears didn’t last long once...More

You can’t beat the convenient downtown location, within walking distance of so many great restaurants, shops and attractions. The building is architecturally gorgeous and the rooms, though small, are well appointed, modern and cool. Ours had a canopy bed and wood floors. Expect to be...More

I stay at this hotel frequently and it never disappoints. Great rooms, love the rooftop, and the staff are the consummate professionals. Having access to the gym next door is an added bonus and the location within easy walking distance to everything downtown is unbeatable.More

The pool is on the terrace on the roof of the hotel - great location. The pool is small - no room for swimming laps! It is a fantastic hotel.

The pool is open 7 am to 10 pm. My friends and I definitely could have lingered later in the spa at night... but they do enforce the hours! Absolutely beautiful pool and jacuzzi.
