Kimpton Stakes Good Land Claim with Hotel Goleta

Boutique Hotel Chain Takes Over Former Holiday Inn on Calle Real

Boutique hotel chain Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is staking its claim in the Good Land, as it recently took over the former Holiday Inn on Calle Real and renamed it simply Hotel Goleta. Kimpton also owns The Canary Hotel in downtown Santa Barbara as well as more than 50 other stylish properties in San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C., and about two dozen locations.

Hotel Goleta is currently open for business, although not yet being promoted as a member of the Kimpton portfolio or offering any of the company’s signature services, according to Kimpton’s representative Faith Yi. That should happen next summer, she explained in an email, and until then, Yi explained, “Hotel Goleta will operate much as it has in the past.” Hotel Goleta offers 160 rooms, a swimming pool, outdoor patio bar, and on-site restaurant.
