A termite infestation shut down The Fess Parker-A DoubleTree by Hilton Resort on Monday.

The hotel is expected to re-open Friday, according to a statement by Beth Olson, director of sales and marketing at Fess Parker.

Licensed testing and fumigation firms have prepped to treat the hotel at 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd., according to Olson.

The 338-room hotel with 22 suites and 45,000 square feet of event space on Santa Barbara’s waterfront was covered with huge orange and blue striped tarps Monday.​

“Once the property has been tested and certified for sale re-entry, we will resume normal operations,” according to the statement. "The safety and wellbeing of our guests is of primary importance all time."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
