The hotel was very chic and was impressed by the decor. The hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the beach wwhich was convenient and the Penthouse restaurant had the most amazing breakfast menu with beautiful views of the beach. The room on the 7th floor was cosy (small); could have done with more drawer space for our clothes. The... More

The Huntley is beautiful art deco building in the heart of Santa Monica. We stayed for a week in March 2015. Our room 1402 had a stunning view of the coast toward Malibu and over the canyons and hills. We watched sunset each evening. Our room was spacious, very comfortable and well appointed. The bedding and towels are excellent quality.... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Huntley. My room was cozy (ie, small) but well appointed; I was in a queen bed partial ocean view from the 15th floor. The double bed rooms are far larger. The beds are fantastic!I found the service impeccable and food tasty, particularly breakfast in the Penthouse restaurant. The spa egg white omelet is the... More

Nice and friendly staff from beginning to end. Small, but comfortable room. However, at that price - I would expect a lot better: The TV didn't work, apparently they just installed a new system, but they must not have paid for Quality Control, the screen reminded me of the very first color TVs that came our a long time ago,...

I thought this property was perfect for a quick 3 night stop in LA. Close to the beach, the shops were walking distance, all the good eating and drinking spots. The location makes up for no pool or balconies. A roof top (enclosed) penthouse restaurant that serves breakfast and then turns into a funky drinking spot in the night. We... More

Our young and hip daughter recommended this hotel to us for our recent visit. It is certainly hip and very stylish. The hotel is fairly small, which is usually a good thing. But the small footprint requires some adjustments: the rooms are small and the elevators are too few and slow. The room itself was quite comfy and the super... More

I travel a lot for work and have recently checked out this hotel. Honestly, this is the worst hotel I have stayed at since my student days. It's terribly managed - and worst of it, not safe: Here’s just a selection of things that went wrong: - the Mini Bar was broken (and open for most of the stay) -... More

This is one of the best hotels that I have stayed at in Santa Monica... the rooms are clean, the service is good, and the hotel has everything you need for a business traveler.

Not only does the Huntley have a caring, well trained staff but a location second to none. Walk along the Pacific, stroll Santa Monica; it doesn't get any better. Rooms are spacious and well appointed and absolutely do not overlook the restaurant, the Penthouse. Use either the outside elevator or the elevator from the lobby. 360 degree views are staggering....

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.
