Just steps from State Street, Canary Hotel is fun, yet elegant, a private island in the heart of the shopping and cultural district of Santa Barbara. Formerly the Hotel Andalucia, the site has undergone a complete renovation by Interior Designer Michael S. Smith including all 97 rooms and suites, the lobby, the porte cochere as well as the addition of Coast Restaurant and Bar, imported from Shutters on the Beach. From the nature songs that fill the air around arriving guests, to the subtle Spanish art gracing the walls, you sense you are in a special space, irresistibly inviting and soothing.
Rich dark wood floors, a Majorcan inspired walnut four-poster bed dressed in crisp white linens and Ikat printed upholstery all speak of quality. In the lobby, the inspiration of Morocco and the Spanish isles is evident.
