Hotel Milo is the quintessential California beach hotel, featuring contemporary decor and elegant Spanish Colonial architecture.

2. The Spanish Garden Inn - Local Staycation
The Spanish Garden Inn is located right here in the heart of Santa Barbara, located in the artsy Presidio district. Each of the rooms come with an in-room fireplace and have an amazing local wine list. Also great is that they support local businesses by featuring treats from local vendors in the mini-bar.
I especially enjoyed the buffet style breakfast, featuring local cheeses and pastries, and omelettes, quiches, and delicious smoothies that were made to order. It was quite a nice spread.
They have a special romance package that features:
- In room bubble bath with lavender salts prepared in advance for you.
- A romantic ambiance and music to set the tone when you enter the room
- An iced bottle of Champagne
- Hand crafted chocolates
- A Molton Brown bath amenity to take home (full size)
3. Mondrian Hotel
If you’re looking for a romantic and sexy luxury option, we’ve got the Mondrian Hotel, located in West Hollywood, on Sunset Blvd. They actually just underwent a $20 million dollar renovation of all the rooms and I checked out the rooms last week. They are inspired by Alice in Wonderland, with a Modern Alice theme and the rooms are so sleek and stylish.
Their signature restaurant Ivory on Sunset also features a newly updated menu. Here are some of the delicious eats.
You'll also have access to the super popular on-site nightclub: Skybar.
