We had our reception at the Canary rooftop. Alison was our coordinator who made this "Type A girl" feel at ease. She was very organized and easy to contact! We also loved working with Devin who coordinated the rooms for our guests. She was very flexible with us. She even had a cute picture of my husband and I as we walked into our junior suite for our wedding weekend. It was a great touch. She also sent goodies to our room during our entire stay. They sure know how to make you feel special!Sent on 11/11/2012

We held our reception on the Canary rooftop after getting married on the Santa Barbara courthouse lawn. It really couldn't have been more perfect. We had about 65 guests, which was a perfect amount for the space -- four tables on either side of the dance floor, and a sweetheart table in the middle facing it all. Liza was a pleasure to work with getting all the details figured out in the year or so leading up to our event, and was really great about providing solutions or suggestions whenever we hit a 'snag' in our planning for the flow of things. The night of, Omar directed his team like a well-oiled machine. Seriously - the venue is beautiful, but the service is fantastic! I remember one moment in particular, I noticed there was a candle that had blown out at my table. No big deal, but literally a minute later there was someone there re-lighting it. I didn't have to say anything! There were moments just like that all night long. I was just so impressed by how on top of it they really were, with EVERYTHING. They made the whole thing so easy. Everything about the Canary is so effortlessly elegant, and I loved that I could just use whatever they normally use (chairs, flatware, table linens, etc) and it still looked so chic and beautiful. Not only that, the food was fantastic. One of my biggest pet peeves is getting bland, tasteless food at a wedding, especially when you know that plate cost upwards of $100 per person. Not so with the Canary! People tell me all the time that was the best food they've ever had at a wedding, and I have to agree. We had our guests select between salmon, chicken, and ribs. It was all beautiful, and all delicious. I will forever cherish the incredible memories we made on that rooftop. <3Sent on 10/23/2017

The Canary Hotel rooftop is one of my absolute favorite venues in all of Santa Barbara! It's the only venue with a sweeping 360 degree view of our beautiful Riviera town and everything from the staff, to the food, to the gorgeous Spanish style architecture is absolutely perfect! I've shot countless weddings there and every single time, I am left with a feeling of complete gratitude for the beauty around me!
They provide excellent service for not only their hotel guests but especially for the weddings. Some of the best experiences we've had have been working with the pros at the Canary.
Beautiful hotel - especially love doing the gorgeous rooftop weddings. They also provide excellent food and service.
