Santa Barbara, California, also known as The American Riviera®, is an ideal site for meetings and conferences. Our hotel properties vary in size from 360 room resorts to boutique properties and meeting facilities as large as the 35,000 square foot Earl Warren Showgrounds to the 1,700 square foot intricately painted Mural Room in the historic Santa Barbara County Courthouse.
"...tranquil beauty greets visitors at the end of a 90-mile freeway drive north from L.A. or after landing at Santa Barbara's tiny Mission-style airport. Fliers touch down gazing at the Santa Ynez Mountains on one side, the Pacific Ocean on the other. A sense of serenity emanates from the city of 90,000's bike-riding, culture-loving, yoga-mat-carrying residents..." Kitty Bean Yancey, USA Today
