My stay at the Huntley Hotel was fabulous! The staff is very accommodating especially Norton the concierge. The property is located in a convenient spot to the Pier as well as Third Street promenade. The room had a nice view of the ocean. Make sure you use the glass elevator- great view of the ocean and beach. The Penthouse has... More

With only a block between the hotel and the beach, the location is fantastic. The staff was very attentive to their guests - from the front desk staff, gift shop/cafe, and valets (but not housekeeping, as described later). We had a king single on the 14th floor with a decent view of the beach, the room windows face north and... More

At the end of a busy holiday I chose this hotel as we wanted a place to wind down and relax before returning home. I specifically requested a room with an ocean view and was very disappointed to find my room although classed as an ocean view room (Or so I was told) had very little ocean view. You could... More

Two queen beds in one room. I know sounds silly, but with two teenagers trying to find hotels that offer that is hard. Most are two double beds. Great hotel, staff and service excellent. Rooms are clean and modern. Free wifi, free water. The Penthouse is a happening spot for the locals. We went up to have drinks and it... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely location. Walking distance to the pier, shopping area, beach and Palisades Park which has beautiful walking paths. The hotel has the feel of a small boutique hotel, but it isn't. Staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Concierge was exceptionally good. I was concerned that only one person at a time works at the... More

Once a year we travel to LA to stay at The Huntley, truly wonderful with great Penthouse restaurant. Through the day go to top floor Penthouse to take in the views and relax, on a night time Penthouse turns into night club vibe with restaurant I could live in this place….

The restaurant on the top floor has amazing views- we only had breakfast there but it was a great brekkie!

This is a wonderful hotel right off the beach with the perfect location. Just a short walk from the Santa Monica Pier and right next to the Third Avenue Promenade.

One block off the beach (which is quieter but lacks the best views) is a great hotel, the Huntley. The rooms are very nice, well appointed. They even have windows that open, great for getting the cool ocean breezes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room the first night was next to the elevator shaft(Rm 508). It wasn’t...
