Triumphantly reborn in 2013, this 1908 icon of Santa Barbara style is a hilltop hideaway for travelers who demand the very best of everything. An infinity pool gazes out at the Pacific, while flower-filled gardens, fireplace lounges, a full-service spa and private bungalows with sun-drenched patios concoct the glamorous atmosphere perfectly fitted to SoCal socialites.

The welcome and atmosphere is anything but snooty, and even if you're not staying, it's worth the drive into the hills for lunch, dinner or a sunset cocktail on its terrace with views across Santa Barbara and out to the Channel Islands.

Parking $35. A courtesy shuttle service whisks guests to any destination within 5 miles of the hotel throughout the day.
