An Iconic Escape Where The City Meets The Ocean

When we’re caught California dreamin’, we hit the left coast for a picture-perfect retreat where the ocean meets the city at Santa Barbara’s Hotel Californian. The iconic escape made its debut in 1925 before being destroyed by an earthquake. It has now been rebuilt and reintroduced as three unique buildings where Martyn Lawrence Bullard-designed digs — the famous designer has worked with the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Eva Mendes, and Edward Norton — meet Spanish Colonial Revival architecture (they even managed to maintain the building’s original facade) steps from the Pacific. Whether admiring the mountains from your private balcony or relaxing at the rooftop pool, we suggest heading straight to Hotel Californian for your next Santa Barbara stay.
