This hotel is beautiful and in walking distance of a lot of great spots! Everything was perfectly clean and the hotels makes an effort to encourage their guest to be environmentally friendly. I had great views over looking the beach and a spacious room for one! The only complaint I have is the coffee in the gift shop is extremely... More

Stayed at this boutique hotel for just under a week. A lovely location, just a stone's throw away from third street promenade. Lots of eating places close by and a Whole Foods minutes (walking distance) away. Greeting at the hotel was poor. Did not make much of an impression. Late check in (after 4pm and room was still not ready).... More

I hope this review isn't unfair to the hotel - due to a late flight and an early meeting, I was only there for like 8 hours! So...take this with a grain of salt. Hotel is lovely, in a historic building but very modern inside. Room was clean and modern and nice, but a little plain. Had a view of... More

This gem of a boutique hotel lies at the north end of the bustling Third Street Promenade retail and tourist area near Santa Monica pier and is just enough steps away from the hustle bustle to be an effective base camp and oasis for both a local business traveller as well as a more low profile tourist who enjoys being...

This is a good hotel-well suited in waterfront Santa Monica with most rooms overlooking the ocean-or part of it. The review is just for the hotel and not the food-the Penthouse is so cold blasting AC blow 60 degrees at all times and I have no desires to raise my goosebumps upstairs there. The valet and bellmen are the best-efficient,... More

The huntley santa monica is nice and very clean. Located very close to the santa monica pier and the promenade with all its shops, cafes etc etc... friendly and helpful staff. When leaving we were provided a private driver to the LAX airport (for the same price as the taxi/air port suttle).

Me and my partner had 4 nights here. Great location. Very luxury. cannot complain about this hotel in anyway but unfortunately I didn't get the wow factor. The windows don't face the beach fully they are side rooms and it is a block away from the beach. But that's the only fault.Staff were very good. Rooms cleaned and room staff... More

Good rooms, wifi acceptable speed, some sea views and massive TV in the room. Heavily perfumed lobby (weird and a bit overpowering), prompt room service and access to everything you need. It doesn't feel special, but it is well situated, clean and comfortable.

Very luxurious rooms with great view across the ocean and the beach, a short walk away from central santa Monica and all of the shops. Also very close the the beach. The rooms have very tasteful decor and make you feel like you're getting what you paid for.

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.
