How it Ranks: The Fess Parker, A DoubleTree by Hilton Resort ranks #7 out of 38 Santa Barbara Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: The Fess Parker sits along the Pacific within walking distance of Santa Barbara's shops, restaurants and shoreline, but many guests feel that they never have to leave the premises. Visitors are granted access to the resort's pools, tennis courts, rental bikes and fitness center. The Fess Parker also houses the Spa Del Mar, which offers a long list of massages and skin treatments. Come mealtime, you'll have your pick of four on-site eateries. As for accommodations, visitors describe the guest rooms as spacious, though some say the decor is starting to look a little tired despite amenities like flat-screen TVs, minibars and balconies or patios. However, you can count on DoubleTree standards of service when staying at The Fess Parker — including complimentary cookies at check-in — and Hilton HHonors loyalty club members can earn or use points here.
