Another in Montecito

August 02, 1987

My wife and I can attest to Michele and Tom Grimm's glowing description of the new Four Seasons Biltmore (July 19, Trip of the Week to Montecito). Our anniversary dinner in the La Marina dining room last week, celebrating a honeymoon at the Santa Barbara Biltmore 20 years ago, was first-rate.

Yet we regret that the article failed to mention another of Montecito's historic resort hotels, Miramar-by-the-Sea.

Under the bright blue roofs, so visible to and well-known by regular U.S. 101 travelers through Santa Barbara, lies a resort that is every bit as enjoyable as the others described in the article.

If one can do without satin-covered clothes hangers, terry-cloth robes and French Provincial relics, one gets in return a beautiful swimming beach, spacious cottages and excellent food and service. And all of this comes at a cost about half that of the others.

The Miramar is a vintage experience which we highly recommend.
