1. The Kimpton Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara
Snuggled in downtown Santa Barbara, this boutique hotel captivates visitors with indulgent amenities and impressive views. Each intimate, Spanish-style room comes with a cozy four-poster bed, hardwood floors, hand-painted tiles, and a complimentary yoga mat (you never know when you need to downward dog). Hotel restaurant Finch & Fork serves tapas such as hamachi crudo and ricotta gnocchi that can be enjoyed in your room or on the terrace. But it's the rooftop that's the true gem of the hotel, which boasts 360-degree vistas from mountains to shoreline, an outdoor fireplace, and a pool. Plus, The Canary is also pet-friendly, so why not bring a four-legged friend?
