Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort, Formerly Fess Parker DoubleTree, Opens
On Apr. 24, 2018, the newly remodeled and rebranded Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort opened its doors to guests.
Formerly known as The Fess Parker, A DoubleTree by Hilton Resort, the hotel has undergone a complete renovation and will remain managed by Hilton (NYSE: HLT) and jointly owned by Park Hotels & Resorts and the Fess Parker family.
“We look forward to this next chapter for the property and to continuing our long-standing partnership with Hilton,” said Eli and Ashley Parker, son and daughter of Fess Parker. “The resort may have a new look and a new name, but will continue to provide the same first-class visitor experience that has made both locals and travelers feel at home for several decades.”
Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort offers more than 40,000 square feet of flexible space – the largest amount of meeting and event space in the region. The resort is also the only hotel in the region that caters private events directly on the beach.
The Grand Ballroom & Foyer can host large-scale, indoor events for up to 600 guests, and the semi-enclosed Plaza Del Sol features 180-degree views of the ocean and a connecting rotunda for special events and receptions.
All 360 newly-remodeled guest rooms are stylishly appointed with ocean and sky-blue tones, driftwood inspired interiors, private balconies or patios.
Dining options include Rodney’s Grill, serving sustainable seafood and naturally raised meats, The Roundhouse for all-day dining, and the Fess Parker Wine Tasting Room, which offers a self-service wine dispensing system.
For guests wishing to relax or rejuvenate, the Spa del Mar offers a variety of salon and spa services, while the 24-hour fitness center with ocean views and heated outdoor pool and whirlpool are open year-round.
The landmark property is walking distance from downtown Santa Barbara and easily accessible to Santa Barbara Airport and the Santa Barbara Amtrak Station via complimentary shuttle service.
“From its unbeatable location to legacy of exceptional service, Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort represents everything today’s travelers value,” said Joe Berger, executive vice president & president, Americas, Hilton.
He added, “With the renovations and repositioning of this resort, we are poised to redefine the guest experience for visitors to this top American destination.”
