THE AMERICAN RIVIERA REDEFINED

Skip THE AMERICAN RIVIERA REDEFINED
Bathroom with the hand painted tiles

Spanish Colonial Revival architecture with Moroccan influences and unexpected custom furnishings from celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard create a modern take on seaside Santa Barbara. Featuring over 1 million tiles—many hand painted and flattened in Morocco—Hotel Californian’s design is as dazzling as the natural beauty of the American Riviera, in an entirely unexpected way.

Hotel Californian finds itself at “La Entrada,” or the entrance, to the burgeoningly cool food & wine centric Funk Zone, and steps away from the iconic beachfront and pier—the perfect location to explore the best of what Santa Barbara has to offer, all accessible by foot.

Named after the Moorish Troubadours of medieval Spain, our Room & Suite names honor the original iconoclasts of the Mediterranean.Almeria, Sevilla, Granada, and Cordova honor the royal cities of Moorish controlled Medieval Spain, while Sestina pays homage to the song style of these illustrious bards. Tangerinn—a beat poet expat enclave—memorializes the famous bar in Tangier where authors Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac found inspiration from these epic poets, and William Burroughs wrote his famous novel Naked Lunch in the infamous Room #9.As you return to the hotel each night, you’ll find your room perfectly prepared for slumber by a Hotel Californian djinn, or genie. Though their whereabouts may be mysterious, we assure these creatures can do no harm, and are only there to lend a helping hand.
