Located one block back from the beach, and with superb views from West side (2nd. Street side) rooms, it is also only 200 metres from the delightful 3rd. St. Promenade and 800 metres from the pier. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, and the penthouse breakfast/dining room has magnificent views. Recommended!

Relaxed and comfortable. Nice view of the Pacific from our room. Linens and toiletries were spa like. Nice gift/coffee shop with very helpful staff in the morning. Location provided easy access to shopping and a walk on the beach. Looking forward to another stay very soon.

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel with excellent views even though we only had a partial view of the beach. However the views from the restaurant on the top floor were outstanding The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.

My second stay at the Huntley. A great location close to ocean front (2nd street and a drop down to the Pacific Coast Highway apart) with far reaching views from floor 8 and up.

My dad was staying at the Huntley for the weekend and surprised me with a birthday dinner at the penthouse. The service food and atmosphere was amazing as always! The Huntley hotel is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Los Angeles.

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.
