I waited and the $159 offer was $203. I still thought it was good price. I was awarded the HIlton Beachside.
Note that the Hyatt's pool may be out of service at the moment due to a remodel. Worth checking if anyone is bidding in Santa Barbara soon. The additional resort fee was disclosed by Hotwire before I purchased. The parking wasn't but I had looked that up on each potential property.
Since it was a few days later, here were the specs right before I ordered:
