How it Ranks: San Ysidro Ranch, A Ty Warner Property ranks #1 out of 38 Santa Barbara Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: At a place where dogs receive in-room massages (we're talking more than just the ordinary belly rub), you know their owners will be equally pampered and doted upon. According to travelers, such is the case at San Ysidro Ranch. Several different levels of accommodations are available, the most prestigious being the Warner Cottage and the Kennedy Cottage (JFK and Jackie's 1953 honeymoon digs). Even if you're not laid up in those ultra-luxe digs, recent visitors say you'll still be more than comfortable. Guest cottages offer a sense of seclusion and a cozy atmosphere with four poster beds, Persian rugs and stone fireplaces. Along with its intimate setting, the hotel hosts two restaurants; The Stonehouse serves up flavorful regional cuisine while Plow & Angel dishes up hearty plates of comfort food (the restaurant is famous for its mac 'n' cheese). San Ysidro Ranch is in the Montecito foothills of California, a 15-minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara.
