Recommended Hotels

We don't have a hotel room block due to the nature of how hotels operate in Santa Barbara. We highly encourage you to book early, as it is a holiday weekend in "America's Riviera". We've listed several hotels near the ceremony and reception venues. Most are within an easy 20 minute stroll of both venues. There are also many hotel options south of the 101 freeway, close to the pier and beach, which is roughly a 30 minute walk. Check out our map below.
