Stayed in the Huntly in Santa Monica. The location was great. A couple of blocks from the sea front and only a short walk to the 3rd Street Promenade with all its shops and restaurants. The room we had was next to the noisiest lift we have ever heard and the first night was pretty sleepless, We couldn't be moved... More

This is a lovely boutique style hotel in the heart of Santa Monica. Although it is set back a block from the ocean front, I still had a lovely ocean view from my 8th floor room. The room itself was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Huge, comfortable bed. The shower room (no bath) was gorgeous with a very large shower.... More

OMFG (oh my food god), our meal in the Penthouse was fantastic, the best meal I have had in a restaurant for a very long time. Our waiter Joe knew the menu backwards and made great recommendations. My veal cheeks starter was out of this world and the Duck main equally as good. The atmosphere was great with good music... More

Enjoyed two nights at this boutique hotel. The room was on the small side but very comfortable with everything you would need. Would have preferred to have had a bath but only a shower. Great location near the beach, shops and restaurants. The Penthouse is a great space although we found it a little intimidating on our first visit. Beware... More

Great botique hotel in Santa Monica, 2 blocks from the beach. Excellent service form check in to check out. Great rooms well appointed and comfortable. Be sure to go to the Penthouse for either happy hour or dinner; very active with a 360 degree panoramic view of the city and the ocean. A wonderful place for a get-a-a way wekend.

Location location! The Huntley is situated in the perfect spot to cruise around Santa Monica. So close to the ocean and pier and 3rd Promenade! Beautiful rooms. We had a partial ocean view, a little pricey but worth it. The top floor bar is amazing! Fabulous views and even better sangria! I'll be staying here again for sure.
