We arrived late about 10pm and our driver almost missed the hotel. It does have a small street frontage but luckily is one of the few high rise buildings in Santa Monica. On arrival we enquired about a late check out as we had a 10pm flight the next day, while the receptionist couldn't guarantee a late check out he... More

I am staying at the hotel for a business meeting. The place has a nice Penthouse bar with good good and is located in the heart of Santa Monica. The room rate is quite high $419 per night, so one would expect 4-5 star comforts. The room is adequate, similar to an older Westin. What was not adequate was the... More

We arrived to the hotel late, and were given an off-spec twin room (without sea view we had booked&paid for), obviously intentionally as there was no apologies or any recognition of mistake. Once we checked the room, asked for another (were told "we're sold out") and finally ended up having even worse room to sleep the night. Middle aged man... More

A sumptuous boutique hotel with a relaxing day spa feel, in a perfect location, with the friendliest staff - from concierge to housekeeping!

We live locally, but we have many business meetings so we commonly book the Huntley for work functions and it never fails to impress my out-of-town colleagues (most of them from SF and New York). This is a place to stay if you don't mind an eclectic hotel with a little noise and you can tolerate the "pretty people". Huntley... More

We stayed here when a conference was on and it was hard to get a room anywhere so perhaps the price was not normal, but at $419 per night it was very expensive for the quality of room and sleep, and no breakfast or internet was included in this rate. The room was OK, with a nice view and good... More
