We planned this weekend family staycation in Santa Monica and was really looking forward to our stay at The Huntley. We booked the Signature Suite and stayed at room 1013. When we checked in we were told it was an ocean view room so we were even more excited. The view was more like a partial ocean view as our room was facing a parking lot. Unfortunately the room itself was quite disappointing. First of all, the elevators had a sign regarding having to use your keycard to go up, but we were still able to go up without using our keycard so safety was questionable especially since we have small kids. The door to our room had paint already about to peel off so not a good sign. When we opened the door we were greeted with an outdated room with very sizeable dents and damage to the wall corners. The part where the carpet meets the marble or tile had the carpet practically peeling off. The window cushions had stains and in dire need of some reupholstering. You are able to open the windows all the way, and this was another safety concern if you have kids since they can just fall out. The pullout sofa bed was quite sad, with the mattress in a permanent U-shape condition. I felt pretty bad for my boys not being able to sleep flat during the two nights we stayed. Our bed was ok, pillows could have been nicer. The bathroom was also quite sad. One of the sink faucet handles came off, the toilet top cover was stained, and the shower was a bit small with the partial open glass allowing water to leak out whenever you take a shower. There is a vanity area in front of the bathtub, and right above it in the ceiling is what seems to be part of the AC. This would occasionally leak so our things on top of the vanity table got a little wet. The AC itself was also very loud every time it turned on, but the room was pretty good in keeping out outside noise. Overall, there is a great need for renovation, at least for this specific suite. We saw some of the other regular rooms in the daytime when housekeeping was cleaning, and they seemed a lot nicer and more modern, and actually cheaper per night. We should have just booked one of those rooms and paid less. It just seemed like we paid too much for our experience. The staff were fine, and valet was also good, but the room itself was sadly lacking.

All around, I had a great experience at the Huntley. My room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Happy hour at the bar restaurant on the Penthouse floor was a great way to sip on a drink and wind up the work day. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, especially Blake and Jacob who wrangled restaurant reservations and car rentals. The Huntley is also in a great location...walking distance to the beach and great restaurants. I will definitely be back, be it for business or pleasure.

Our lovely friend was having her bachelorette in LA and we chose the Santa Monica area because of course its by the beach and there are great bars and restaurants. I ADORED the Huntley, what an amazing choice we made and it wasn't as expensive as it seemed to be honest. They knew we were here for a special occasion and treated us like queens - thank you!!! I would tell anyone and everyone to stay here! Great harbor views too!

I can not express enough how appreciative and thankful I am to have been in contact with Akemi, one of the front desk managers, at this darling hotel. I took my twin daughters down to Santa Monica from Northern California for a fun Mom/daughter weekend away for their sweet 16. I called the hotel a couple of weeks prior to our arrival asking if the room could be decorated as a birthday surprise for when they walked into the hotel room. I sent balloons, banners, etc down to the hotel and when we walked into the room my girls were blown away… so was I! It was perfect! Not only did Akemi and her team make sure the room was decorated beautifully, she had also upgraded us to an ocean view room. Akemi was amazing to work with, made sure all of our needs were met and was extremely professional. It’s so refreshing to travel and feel like your wishes and wants are cared about! This was definitely the case at the Huntley! Thank you!!! Katie and daughters!
