Quick Tips Before You Plan Your Trip!

  1. Which airport? Look at flying into Santa Barbara (SBA), but Burbank (BUR) and Los Angeles (LAX) are both within a few hour drive of Santa Barbara. Drive times, train/bus shuttle options, and more information can be found here.

  2. Where to stay. There are lots of great options in and around Downtown Santa Barbara, where The Hotel Californian is. For room block information and other details, go here.
