Best decision we've ever made!!!
We searched high and low through the state for the perfect California Wedding venue. When we landed on Hotel Californian it was truly a dream come true. From the aesthetics to the service it was absolutely second to none! If we could do it all over again we would absolutely choose Hotel Californian again.Sent on 07/08/2020

Great Experience Thus Far
So far I have had a great experience with the Hotel Californian. Samantha (my sales contact) has been very responsive, even during the busy wedding season, and is very quick to answer questions and address concerns. The space is beautiful. I will be using the rooftop, courtyard and ballroom and all 3 are great spaces. Rooms are very nice and I am very excited to have my wedding here. I would say pricing may be a bit high, but its Santa Barbara so that can be expected.Sent on 09/25/2019
