Snuggled in the middle of downtown Santa Barbara, this boutique hotel captivates visitors with indulgent amenities and impressive city views. Each intimate Spanish-style room comes with an astonishingly cozy four-poster bed, hardwood floors, hand-painted tiles and a complimentary yoga mat (because you never know when you need to down dog). Hotel restaurant Finch & Fork serves scrumptious shareable tapas such as fish tacos and lamb burgers that can be enjoyed in your room or on the terrace. But it's the rooftop that's the true gem of the hotel — lounge by the pool and admire the 360-degree views from mountains to the sea, or get cozy by the outdoor fireplace and try some stargazing. The Canary is also pet-friendly, without additional fees or restrictions. With this kind of hospitality, you might find it hard to leave.
