    Perfect Rooftop Wedding

    Pilar was such a joy to work with. She was very helpful since we were planning our destination wedding during Covid.

    Pilar was by our side the entire time giving us updated on local enforcement changes and worked with us to make our day perfect, even during a pandemic.

    Kimpton Canary's reply:

    Kristen,

    Thank you very much for taking the time to send us a review! Thank you for being a wonderful bride and your flexibility to accommodate the constant changes.

    It was a pleasure to meet you and your family; thank you for allowing us an opportunity to be part of such an unforgettable celebration.

    All my best,
    Pilar

    Perfect Venue

    I can’t say enough about Liza, her staff and the amazing setting provided at The Kimpton Canary. Our guests raved about how beautiful the setting is and how delicious the food was. Liza and her staff were all responsive and very professional in all interactions.

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.
