Right in the beginning I want to thank our dear friends for recommending the Huntley Hotel. From the moment we got out of the car, to the check-in, the room, drinks and dinner at the Penthouse, it was an amazing time. The entire staff was very helpful and sweet and made us feel right at home. Let’s start from the... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Fairmont next door many times and we thought we would give the Huntley hotel a try. We really enjoyed ourselves. The service was attentive and top notch. The location amazing. The hotel offered a variety of little offerings such as automatic lights at the foot of the bed which come on when... More

My boyfriend and I chose this hotel not only because it was so beautiful, but the location cannot get any better! The moment we arrived to the moment we departed, we had the most memorable experience. All staff are professional yet personable, and not the "stuffy" type of service you start to see at most luxury branded properties. The Penthouse... More

We were attending a wedding nearby at the Fairmont and stayed at the Huntley with a large group of other guests. We were greeted warmly by professional staff and told we were being upgraded to a corner room. Our spacious room on the 16th floor had spectacular views in 2 directions.

This was our third visit to the Huntley and yet again it was it's usual great standard. From the valet parking to checking in the staff were professional and helpful. The room was clean and well decorated with a lovely walk in shower. The penthouse was excellent for breakfast and a drink in the evening. Overall a 5 star experience.

Stayed here in on a suite special. Service good but room quality unacceptable! The room needs updating and revamping. Not good! And ... The one feature, the Penthouse Restaurant was closed for a private party. They just forgot to tell us at check in, despite us making arrangements to meet a colleague for lunch. Very poor.

It's a very nice hotel, good service, nice rooms, nice view. The location is great for sport and shopping. Good service. The only issue is that their main restaurant does not have outdoors...such a shame with such a nice view and weather.

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.
