We stayed in the Huntington for 5 nights in early September. We had an early flight and our driver dropped us at 10:00AM at the hotel. This really is a lovely hotel, with a great location across from Huntington park. The front desk clerk offered us a large 2 double bedded room with a nice view, which would have been... More

We enjoyed a Thursday-Monday stay at The Huntington for our combined birthdays and anniversary celebration in late August. I really can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was wonderfully attentive, friendly and helpful, delivering a level of service that we haven't enjoyed in a hotel for a long time. The doormen even greeted us by name, and... More

We stayed for several nights on our first visit to this city in June 2012 so negative things may have changed for the better. We found the hotel was well placed - not too distant from hub of things, and we found getting around was easy - walking (downhill) and bus or trolley car (uphill)! We found the hotel staff... More

The only thing we could fault was the walk up and down the steep hill to the hotel!!! Otherwise a fab place to stay. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. Tip get the trolley back up the hill

Stayed 3 nights, upgraded to one of their newly refurbish 1 bedroom "scarlet" themed 1bedroom suites without asking! Can't rate the property highly enough, attentive, knowledgable staff and a classic restaurant.

I was always delighted by the warm and helpfulness of the wonderful men at the front door of the hotel. Inside the desk staff is extremely slow and confused. Concierge was excellent however. The rooms are OK. Spacious but shocking, odd colors. Two standouts - the beds are very comfy and the breakfast was delicious although expensive. I would look... More

If you really want to spend that much money, go to some trendy nice hotels. This property is just okay, but the exorbitant price makes it a bad deal. The only cool thing is the view either of the park or of the city on the other side. The reception would not check us in earlier than noon and they... More
