Great botique hotel in Santa Monica, 2 blocks from the beach. Excellent service form check in to check out. Great rooms well appointed and comfortable. Be sure to go to the Penthouse for either happy hour or dinner; very active with a 360 degree panoramic view of the city and the ocean. A wonderful place for a get-a-a way wekend.

I have chosen this hotel for both short stays (long weekends) and extended stays (almost 2 months in the summer of 2014) and would not stay anywhere else in Santa Monica (have visited several other alternatives). Location is fabulous, rooms (especially the beds) are a amazing. What sets this place apart though are the people - the staff - all... More

We stayed 3 nights as part of a 3 week driving holiday, so the hotel was selected by the tour agency. Great location close to the beach, restaurants, shops etc. Excellent reception staff. So welcoming. Asked about wifi on arrival and was immediately offered it free for our whole stay (nice touch). The valet parking is fabulous but $37 per... More

Location location! The Huntley is situated in the perfect spot to cruise around Santa Monica. So close to the ocean and pier and 3rd Promenade! Beautiful rooms. We had a partial ocean view, a little pricey but worth it. The top floor bar is amazing! Fabulous views and even better sangria! I'll be staying here again for sure.

I've been here a few times for business trips, but have never been thrilled with the rooms during my stay. One time, something in the room beeped very lowly throughout the night whenever the AC kicked on. Not being from the west coast, I started to wonder if there was some sort of earthquake alarm going off in other rooms... More

Nice hotel very close to the oceanfront, good rooms with nice bathrooms, great valet service, restaurant/roof bar really nice. But not really worth the money. Wifi is extra and not cheap. Of course hotels in Santa Monica are expensive but since I didn't find anything extravaganza in this hotel, I would rather stay in a cheaper one and visit Huntley... More

Stayed one night and wish I had more time. A stylish hotel. Our room was excellent; great TV, lounge area and a wonderfully comfortable bed. The best bathroom I have yet to see. Not huge, just smart and beautifully renovated. We were not ocean front but had a great view of the beach. Staff were great. No question I will... More

Had a nice stay at the Huntley recently. Nice size room with nice bathroom. Had an ocean front room, which was nice. Although it is only partial ocean as there are no rooms which directly face the hotel, still nice though. The higher up the room the better the view.
