Our hotel—part of Hyatt’s lauded Unbound Collection—makes the perfect home base on this fabled stretch of Pacific coast, and the incredible historical architecture, rich shopping and dining, and world-class entertainment and educational venues of Santa Barbara’s venerable core are right at your fingertips as a guest of ours.

Downtown Santa Barbara: One of California’s Genuine Treasures

Snuggled between the soaring heights of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the northern edge of the Pacific’s Southern California Bight, Santa Barbara has played host to human settlement for thousands of years, most of it belonging to the rich heritage of the Chumash people.

The era of Spanish colonial settlement remains represented in the cityscape, as at the well-known El Presidio de Santa Barbara (123 E. Canon Perdido St.), a remarkable relic of the days of Alta California.

A mix of grand throwback architecture and rich here-and-now culture defines Downtown Santa Barbara. There’s an amazing array of stores as well as restaurants, cafes, and bars, with Hyatt Mar Monte giving you the ideal launchpad for shopping and dining outings.

Explore first-class museums such as the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (113 Harbor Way, Ste 190), the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (1130 State St.), and MOXI – The Wolf Museum of Exploration & Innovation (125 State St.). Or take in a show at one of Downtown Santa Barbara’s outstanding performing-arts venues, among them the Center Stage Theater (751 Paseo Nuevo Ctr), the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.), and the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.).

We’re just scratching the surface here in terms of what a stroll, bikeride, or drive through Downtown Santa Barbara has to offer, mind you.
