Santa Barbara well earns its nickname of the “American Riviera,” blessed with a spectacular Mediterranean climate and a backdrop spanning from ravishingly rugged mountaintops out to the Santa Barbara Channel and the wide-open Pacific Ocean.

Boutique luxury accommodations in the form of our Hyatt Unbound Collection hotel are definitely the way to experience all of this Southern California magic.

Boutique Santa Barbara, CA Accommodations at Mar Monte Hotel

Our boutique hotel positions you mere steps away from Santa Barbara’s Pacific beachfront—in other words, Mar Monte Hotel offers the perfect home base on the American Riviera! Our newly updated guest rooms and suites immerse you in comfort and a décor inspired by the regional Spanish Colonial style.

Some of our guest rooms as well as the King Deluxe Ocean View Suite include private balconies with spectacular sightlines: depending on the setup, out toward the Pacific Ocean or up to the majestic heights of the Santa Ynez Mountains.

These accommodations offer an array of amenities including refrigerators, Keurig coffee-makers, in-room safes, irons and ironing boards, and 55-inch flatscreen TVs (one in the rooms, two in the suites). You’ll also have an in-room yoga mat available for your own private posing and stretching (and to complement, perhaps, the Vinyasa Flow classes offered by Divintree Yoga on Saturday mornings across the street on the beach!).

Our suites, meanwhile, up the ante with indulgently deep, absolutely irresistible soaking tubs.

Here at at Mar Monte Hotel, we offer rooms and suites not only in our main building, but also just a block and a half away at the Palmoro House. (You can learn more about that standalone branch of Mar Monte Hotel in this recent blogpost of ours.)

Mar Monte Hotel Amenities

That boutique room or suite at Mar Monte Hotel gives you easy access to our array of on-site amenities, indulge at one of our on-site restaurants, costa Kitchen & Bar or easy-breezy Café Lido, plus our heated outdoor pool and whirlpool and our very own bocce-ball court.

Our Lobby Terrace hosts regular tastings—everything from wine, beer, and spirits to kombucha and coffee—plus wine and mixology classes, while the Café Lido pool deck hosts weekend live music.

And besides the pleasure of East Beach just across the way, you can explore the numerous other sandy seashores strung along the American Riviera coastline—or tour lively, gallery- and restaurant-packed Downtown Santa Barbara—on one of the Mar Monte Cruiser Bikes we make available to guests.
