Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort Santa Barbara

Fess Parker's Doubletree resort occupies a prime stretch of Santa Barbara's coastline. Palm trees dot the 24 acres of well manicured grounds and the resort's pool is big and inviting. Generous size rooms are scattered about the property in low-rise buildings. Santa Barbara's downtown shopping area is less than a mile away and can be reached via a 20-minute walk along the waterfront. Hotel website: www.hilton.com.
