My experience with the Huntley staff during check in was very poor. Customer service means everything to me and I didn't get it from the staff that checked us in. Very rude toward my sister and I. But unfortunately this wasn't the bigger issue. We only stayed one night because we were going to travel up Pacific Coast Highway to... More

We only stayed 1 night at the end of our holiday. Booked through Visa Signature as you get a few extras and provides better value for money. One perk is an upgrade (where available). On check in the gentlemen advised we had been upgraded... Nice... except it was the room we had actually booked and when I questioned how he... More

We were in California for a wedding and decided to stay in Santa Monica as our home base. The wedding was in the Hollywood Hills area but we wanted to stay close to the beach. We found this hotel to be a great location for us to get beach time (1 block away from beach), walking to restaurants and shopping... More

Hotel combines benefits of the perfect location - close to the beach and historical peer as well as to the 3rd street shopping promenade - with excellent service.

The Huntley is a classic hotel in a quiet part of Santa Monica, though just a five minute walk to all of the sights. The bar/restaurant atop the hotel called The Penthouse is right out of a movie. Stunning views, cool seating, delicious cocktails and an interesting menu, both at the bar and at tables. A must visit! The beds... 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.
