First hotel stay on a whistle-stop tour of America. The hotel is 30mins from LAX, a short walk to the fabulous Santa Monica beach with all its attractions including the Pier and Muscle Beach and a lovely walk to Venice beach. Great, quiet location away from the traffic noise. I was upgraded to a sea view room - fabulous sunset.... More

Booked this hotel for a romantic weekend in LA at Santa Monica. Got the Huntley King with a nice view of the beach and ocean, very large room with a nice shower and tub.

Loved the Huntley, great location, bright and comfortable rooms. The roof top bar is a must to visit, we had some of the best cocktails in America up at the bar looking out over the stunning view of Santa Monica beach. Our only regret is that we only stayed 1 night!

The hotel was very chic and was impressed by the decor. The hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the beach wwhich was convenient and the Penthouse restaurant had the most amazing breakfast menu with beautiful views of the beach. The room on the 7th floor was cosy (small); could have done with more drawer space for our clothes. The... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
