Each time I visit The Huntley, it just reminds me on how great this small independent hotel is. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The property is absolutely spotless and well appointed. The windows all open so you can catch a nice ocean breeze. The Penthouse Restaurant has a great view along with a wonderful menu of well-prepared creative offerings.... More

The voyer was extremely impressive. Beatiful furniture. Very welcoming. The rooms were nice. Great views of Santa Monica and the beach and some of LA. In a great location to walk to the beach or to 3rd street shops. Lots of eateries close by to walk to. Was a bit costy but was good value for what you got

My hubby and I had our hardwood floors refinished in our Palisades home and had to move out for four nights. We chose the Huntley because we wanted a place close to our house, and a location that allowed us to walk to everything in downtown Santa Monica. The Huntley is not located on the beach as it's name may... More

This is my 4th visit, and always impressed with the service. Staff has been trained extremely well, and this a jewel property that is a must for anyone staying in Santa Monica. Food and beverage at the Penthouse restaurant was outstanding, and of course it is the place to be seen. Again, staff well trained!

Great hotel, well located, large modern rooms (most with decent views), top floor restaurant is great for dinner or drinks with fantastic views, staff is very professional and nice, reasonable pricing relative to some of the other Santa Monica high tier hotel options. Most recent trip, didn't realize I had left... More

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.
