About a half-hour north of Santa Barbara, the trendy beachside community north of Los Angeles, you’ll find the southern border of California’s Central Coast wine region.
In recent years, Santa Barbara itself has become a destination for wine lovers, thanks to the proliferation of tasting rooms that collectively have come to be known as the Urban Wine Trail. Tucked between Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean, the Urban Wine Trail offers both novices and aficionados the opportunity to learn about and taste wines of many different varieties and styles crafted from Santa Barbara County’s best vineyards.
Located just steps from the tasting rooms, making it ideal as a home base for a wine-focused vacation, is the Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara at the State House, a Euro-style hotel that combines the historic beauty of the area with the architectural sophistication of contemporary design, providing hip, affordable accommodations for style-minded guests.
The guest rooms are cleverly designed to make the most of limited space, and include European-style wet bathrooms. An array of first-class amenities include free WiFi throughout the hotel, stylish rooftop lounges, a fitness facility and fully equipped business center. There also is an Art Library, spotlighting an ever changing array of works through the hotel’s partnership with Santa Barbara’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
The Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara at the State House sets a new standard for hotels in Santa Barbara, where style, value and environmental responsibility combine for a consummate cultural experience.
