The newly updated and renamed Canary Hotel (formerly Hotel Andalucia) has large four-poster Spanish beds for midday breaks between short drives to wine tasting in nearby Los Olivos and Solvang. Plus, its downtown location makes dinner at local institutions such as Bouchon and Downey's an easy walk. Introductory rates for the 97 rooms in the Spanish and Moroccan-themed hotel start at $249 a night. The Canary Canoodle package offers a king bed, valet parking and dinner for two at the hotel's Coast restaurant, (sister to one of the owners' other properties, Shutters in Santa Monica) for $449 per night.
