Rancho Santana’s boutique property hosts 38 distinctive guest rooms within its Inn and Residences. With high ceilings accented with wooden beams, bathrooms featuring hand-painted tiles, and furniture and other design flourishes designed and built on site, you will feel grounded in place by the contextual and complimentary fabrics and wall art. An iPad concierge in each room also adds ease of communication between guests and staff.

Some rooms feature soaking tubs and separate sitting areas. The hotel’s “Residences” offer three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo-style units with full kitchens and private living areas – perfect for group getaways or multi-generation family holidays.
