I chose to stay at the Huntley while in Santa Monica for business as the area can get somewhat touristy and I didn't want to be in the middle of that. The Huntley is a perfect location - a short walk from the Promenade (4 blocks) and beach (2 blocks). Soul Cycle is a few blocks away as well. The... More

Carlos in reservations went out of his way to make our son and daughter-in-law's honeymoon night amazing. They had one night to celebrate their nuptials, and Carlos went out of his way to make sure this very abbreviated honeymoon was special. Thank you so much!

This hotel seemed nice at first but several things happened our first day that were very disappointing. Housekeeping came in to turn down the beds and closed one window blind but left the other blind, the one nearest the bed, open. The reason: it was broken. But they just left it that way so when we returned at night and... More

The Huntley is a great little boutique hotel on 2nd street in Santa Monica. Some of their rooms have had a recent remodel adding to the appeal of the place. Situated on 2nd, you're in a quiet, low traffic area with access to many restaurants and sites. (3rd Street, Bungalow, Santa Monica Pier, etc) The "Penthouse" restaurant on the top... More

The building is beautiful, the concierge very friendly, the rooms clean, but very small! I had an old alarm clock that only played music on an iPhone 4! So that is very outdated and useless!

Highlights - Great remodeled, very clean, big rooms. Were four in the room and really appreciated the 2 queen beds and plenty of space. Negatives - Paying almost $15 for two cups of coffee in the morning was silly at this price point. And the atmosphere in the top floor restaurant was not something for families with young children.

I visited the Huntley last week. Location good -- a block from the Ocean Ave. 10 minute walk to Pier. Near 3rd St promenade (touristy and easily missed). From the outside it looks like a condominium and does not have the feel of a hotel -- no balconies, big box look, etc. Gym is small and not inviting. Nice lobby.... More

I had a good stay at the Huntley. My room was spacious, clean and neat and the cleaning staff did a great job. Slightly annoying that the toilet made the sound of a jet-engine when flushed – and more annoying that the room above obviously had the same issue! Great location, being two streets from both the sea and shopping... More

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.
