The Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara made my wedding weekend an absolute dream come true. From the day I toured the hotel with Krista Kurosaki to the bellman putting the last bag of luggage into my car.

Krista was so great to work with from beginning to the end. She answered every question of mine in a timely manner and never could I tell that she was annoyed with my indecisiveness. Each time I asked her a question; I expected negative feedback but never had that. She knew exactly how to ease my mind, even when I was freaking out on the cart ride to walk down the aisle, she was so calm and friendly. At the reception she even offered to snap a picture for one of my guests. She was THE best and I am truly going to miss talking and working with her.

The hotel was fabulous! We had the Santa Cruz Suite. Day one, my fiancé (now husband) and I received a bottle of wine and some cheeses. What a great surprise that was! Then on the morning of our wedding, the staff delivered my girls and I mimosas and to top it off on our wedding night, my husband and I walked into our suite to see rose petals on our bed with wine and chocolate covered strawberries. We totally got the VIP treatment. Not to mention, some of my guests were also upgraded rooms even when the hotel was booked for the weekend.

The Banquet manager, Lorenzo was also great! His staff helped us with setup and take-down. I had so many guests tell me that our wedding was the best ever. After hearing it a few times I started to ask what they liked best and some responses I got were “the chicken was delicious and not your typical wedding food” and “the wait staff was on top of it.”

I seriously cannot that your hotel, Krista, Lorenzo, and Joel enough. It’s truly bittersweet for me that the entire process is over because it was such a great experience. To anyone considering the Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara for their wedding ceremony and reception, I highly recommend it.

We had our wedding reception at Hyatt Santa Barbara and it was just an amazing experience for us and the guests! Krista Kurosaki, the catering manager, treated me and my wife like family. From planning up to the time we had our reception, it was just excellent customer service. The bartender, the servers, all the staff who worked with us from check in to check out were very polite and professionals. The complimentary room that came with the reception package was set up immaculately! Despite the exhaustion we felt before going to bed, the atmosphere of that room was just so romantic. I highly recommend this place for anyone getting married at Santa Barbara.

We had our wedding reception at the Hyatt! It could not have gone better! Krista Kurosaki specifically was absolutely amazing. She is very detail oriented, accommodating, knowledgeable and a great person. She helped helped us plan a wonderful reception and made sure we had the perfect celebration for our wedding. As for the venue, the property is gorgeous and in a brilliant location across from the beach. The food and beverage was wonderful. The entire staff showed us a great amount of attention to make sure everything went off without a hitch. We highly recommend using this property for a special event and especially a wedding reception. Make sure to work with Krista as she is beyond amazing! - A&D

We worked with Leighann at the Hyatt - keep in mind I was a bride with very little idea of what I actually needed to think about/consider for my big day. Leighann was a pleasure to work with - easy going, great recommendations, didn't try to 'sell' me extras or go over my budget. I had two events - family/friends get together (60 people) then wedding on the beach plus reception (90 people). Both events were seamless, food was great as were the decorations. Leighann guided the bridal party, managed guests and was around right through dinner - always with a great smile! The food (server passed nibblies and dinner) were served hot (my big fear...cold congealed food) - got lots of compliments from guests.

Only watch out is that this is an older hotel (architecture is cool and quirky) definitely not what your guests will expect from a Hyatt ... I had several people complain about the rooms not being what they expected. Please set expectations...

What a top notch establishment! We and our guests were really blown away by the quality of the food, the decor, and the level of professionalism their catering staff adhered to during the event. They took care of everything down to the smallest detail. Our food tasting prior to the Big Day was almost like an event in itself. Lindy Myktiuk, our wedding reception contact and special events manager at Hyatt, was just a pleasure to work with. She was highly personable and had this wonderful sense of humor and was just a great person to work with. My husband and I never had to worry about anything during the reception all the way to finally opening the door to our honeymoon suite graciously provided by the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone meaning to have their wedding in Santa Barbara.

My husband and I very recently hosted a Morning After the Wedding Brunch at the Hyatt and it was absolutely fabulous. The brunch ran from 9 until Noon and it was continuously refilled and made to look fresh by the servers. The setting was lovely in a room with a balcony looking over at the ocean. The food was really delicious and the price was very reasonable. It would make a beautiful wedding venue, too. We would highly recommend it.
