The Inn of the Spanish Garden
This Spanish-style inn, located in the Presidio District, is only three blocks from Santa Barbara’s main drag, State Street. Each of the 23 rooms has a sitting area with a fireplace, and all reservations include a daily complimentary continental breakfast with quiche and espresso drinks. Relax in the property’s namesake garden, either at a table or by the tiled fire pit, or take a swim in the outdoor lap pool that is always 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The evening wine bar offers small bites and pours of local Santa Ynez wines.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
