We recently stayed 3 nights as a stop over at the end of a month away in the Caribbean/Florida. Our flight to LA had been changed so I emailed reception a few days prior to arriving to ensure our room would be held as we would be arriving between midnight and 2am, a speedy response gave me confidence in their...

My wife and I stayed at the Huntley for 3 nights recently. The location is actually quite nice. While not quite a "one-minute" drive as pointed out numerous times by management responses, (was this one-minute drive at 4am?), it is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach/Santa Monica Pier that is worth it if you've never been. If you've been... More

I recently stayed in this hotel in an ocean view room on the 17th Floor, and liked everything about the hotel. It has an excellent location, the styling and decor is very tasteful and the theme is maintained throughout the hotel. I usually take note of small things in the hotels I stay in, and in this case, I noted... More

This hotel is in an excellent location, close to the beach and 3rd Street Promenade shops. The bed was excellent, the room spotless and the toiletries top notch.

Location is great, staff were very friendly, on-site restaurant also good. But one terrible thing: loud, drunk conversations, continuing in the hallway from 2am until 3am, despite multiple people calling the desks. Not classy at all.

The hotel was lovely but only one lift working and it was very slow, sometimes we had to wait for about 10 minutes to get in. The staff were very helpful though, the penthouse restaurant was beautiful great view and very clean and modern, with mouth watering food.

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.
