Booked on the way to the hotel and was pleasantly surprised on arrival. Staff was courteous and helpful on check in and when I needed dining help given the COVID restrictions. Their onsite dining is closed but delivery is available from most local restaurants. The view from the room was great, definitely worth the extra fee for an ocean view. There is just one elevator however so going back and forth to the 16th floor was a bit time consuming. Would definitely stay there again.

Hotel's Favorite
We arrived at the Huntley a day after their re-opening after a closure of several months due to the Coronavirus. Due to the extended three month closure, not everything was running completely as planned. However,, NO staff could have made a greater effort at making our stay a success. We cannot speak highly enough of the management and staff at the Huntley Santa Monica Beach. These are difficult times to travel and we had a family emergency that required our attendance in Santa Monica. Everyone at the Huntley made us feel welcome and important. The rooms are gorgeous! Everything seems newly decorated and beautifully appointed. We will definitely be back! Thank you to all there.

During times of COVID, traveling is tough; planning an engagement is even more challenging. I recently booked a suite for NYE and ended up speaking with both the GM and Director of FO, named Jacob, prior to arrival. I let them know my intention of planning an engagement at their beautiful hotel, where we've spent an anniversary dinner or two at their penthouse restaurant. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed with the restrictions in place, but that didn't hinder efforts to create a memorable night. Jacob was a HUGE help and went above and beyond to help make the engagement one to remember; I've never seen so much hospitality and kindness, especially during a time when we can all use a little more of it. The hotel itself felt sanitized, and the check-in process had protective measures in place; even the valet used steering wheel and gear shift covers. The room featured a great view, easy access (though they did have an elevator down for maintenance) in an off-central area to Santa Monica. It's a nice hotel in a safe neighborhood with access to PCH, shops, and restaurants (when open) in the heart of downtown SM. Thanks for an unforgettable experience and happy traveling.

Our stay at the Huntley Santa Monica Beach was amazing! The valet parking assistants were extremely nice , the gentleman at the front desk was super courteous and helpful through our entire stay , the hotel management and accommodations directors are on top of it they really know how to make you feel important and special. I proposed to my girlfriend 12/15/20 and she accepted! Our entire stay in the signature suit was spectacular, we were in a world of our own. it was nice to forget about all the stress and anxiety of daily covid life. We had a beautiful sight through our window we could see all the way to down town LA and the Santa Monica shore line. We felt so special and important the entire stay. The guest service is super fast when you need extra soap or shampoos. The hotel was clean trendy very ritzy and most importantly followed all coved guidelines and regulations. We felt safe and very satisfied will all aspects of our stay. Thank you to all the staff and management . We will be back !

Santa Monica is not cheap, so just commit to the fact that you'll spend $250/night plus. As a solo traveler I want to 1) feel safe and (2) walk to restaurants/cafes etc and this hotel provided both. Hotel is two blocks from beach and the staff are super helpful. I stayed in October which I think was super quiet and as a iPrefer member I received upgrade to top floor with great views and sound of ocean at night. Note: The penthouse restaurant has moved to 2nd floor for outdoor dining. I did a walk through but did not eat there. I enjoyed the closeness to the beach, plenty of nearby restaurants to walk to, and great staff with recommendations for hiking and restaurants. Parking is pricey $55/ night so you can use nearby garage for $25/night or park on street up to 9 hours (space hit or miss). I parked and use scooters mostly except when I left Santa Monica. Enjoy!
