This hotel evinces a California style typical of Santa Monica chic. Not only so you get incredible views from the top floor restaurant bar, but the ambiance is chic and happening yet still family friendly. Surfing for kids and great people watching and sunsets for their parents. A must see!

We stayed here for three nights on a drive from SF to LA and could not have been happier. The staff at reception and valet parking were fantastic, the reception and rooms were superb and the location is great. We had a room with a partial sea view and the room was large, light and spotlessly clean. Be aware that... More

We stayed here for a long weekend visit to Los Angeles. It is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach and Third Street Promenade. We even walked to Venice Beach from the hotel (it took several hours but a very fun excursion). I loved the decor...very modern and inviting. The hotel bar/restaurant was packed on the weekends and obviously... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Huntley hotel. When we arrived after midnight on Friday morning, staff were very pleasant and welcoming. It was not a problem for the front desk to make us feel at ease so early in the morning and processing our booking with excellent professionalism and courtesy. We were very tired... More

Boutique feel, rooms so clean I didn't want to touch anything (especially in the bathroom!), and a fantastic location right by the beach, pier, and restaurants. There's an Exhale across the street and the hotel provided a complimentary pass to Soul Cycle.

Well designed, perfect location, nicely thought through details, good fitness center. Quiet room with modest view of Santa Monica mountains. Not the warmest reception at check in but amenities made up for it. An all around great experience!

Great hotel. We stayed one night on drive down to San Diego from San Fran. Very helpful staff. Lovely rooms. Penthouse for breakfast is a must. No pool but Santa Monica beach nearby!! Would recommend for couples, families or business travellers.
