Canary Hotel

ETC has journeyed to the Canary Islands and returned with a slice of the Islands' natural beauty and serenity intact. From the nature songs that fill the air around the arriving guests to the subtle Spanish art that graces the walls, you sense you are in a special space, familiar yet unfamiliar, the Spanish elements blending smoothly with the local architecture and culture, but lighter, more playful; irresistibly inviting and soothing.

Formerly the Hotel Andalucia, the site has undergone a complete makeover including all 97 rooms and suites, the lobby, and porte cochere, as well as the addition of Coast Restaurant & Bar, imported directly from Shutters on the Beach, where it is already a success just months after opening.

The lobby, guest rooms and suites have all benefited from the expert hand of famed interior designer Michael S. Smith, whose inspired blend of rarified antiques, rich colors and textures, and familiar materials mixed with a dash of the exotic convey a richly layered, personal style that can best be described as classic mix of town and country. Rich dark wood floors with seagrass matting, a statement walnut four-poster bed dressed in crisp Matelasse and ikat printed upholstery all speak of the quality one would choose for their own home. Downstairs in the lobby, things are spiced up a bit with inspiration taken from Morocco and the Spanish isles and perfectly suited to become Santa Barbara's gathering spot.

Coast Restaurant and Bar will be the ideal addition to the Santa Barbara dining scene, with its street level location and menu of updated comfort fare centered around what is in season at the markets. Chef Fermin Arias has created a menu inspired by Coast Santa Monica, but he has adapted it for Santa Barbara, and as a perfect partner for the relaxed and lively atmosphere where guests will likely want to visit a few times a week.


The building's iconic rooftop has also been redone and coined The Perch. It's the ideal spot for weddings or for lounging by the pool with 360-degree views spanning from the mountains to the Pacific. Canary Hotel also has several great spots for social events and meetings, be it a charity gala, company off-site meeting or a wedding. A ballroom and spacious, well-equipped meeting rooms and The Perch allow for so many varied functions.

Service at Canary Hotel will be polished, but relaxed and friendly making it the perfect place to work, play and nest in Santa Barbara.

ETC hotels are well known for their sense of whimsy and quality amenities, and Canary Hotel will be no exception. From the signature surfing tree frog bath toy, Club Canario dog program, to the Personal Spa brought to your room featuring a menu of aloe-based treatments, Canary will be a welcome respite in the center of Santa Barbara.

Canary Hotel is a member of Small Leading Hotels and is located at 31 West Carillo Street in Santa Barbara. To make a reservation, call toll-free 1.877.468.3515 or 1.805.884.0300. www.canarysantabarbara.com.
