Good drinks, good view... You'll probably run into a celeb or two... Of course you're paying Santa Monica standards :) We had truffle fries for appetizers, with the truffles on top of the fries! The chicken wings are good and the sliders were good... If you get lucky, you can catch a good Santa Monica sunset!

Our stay here really did exceed our expectations. The staff were amazing... one in particular was so good with our children it really was the highlight of their day seeing him.

Stayed for the second time at the Huntley. Beautiful refurbished room! They thought of it all! Staci and Blake at the front desk are awesome and very kind! In fact, all service is really first class.

We recently stayed in Santa Monica and our first hotel was not up to our expectations for sleeping arrangements. We called a few local hotels and found the Huntley to have 1 room left that would work for us. We checked in the next morning quickly before heading off to Six Flags Magic Mountain for the Day.

I wanted this to be so much more impressive than it was. The website is beautiful, it shows a hotel that is light and airy and looks very beach-chic. But the reality is that the lobby felt a little dreary, and I'm not sure why that was. I just wasn't enjoying the vibe of it. First impressions were just not...

Stayed here for the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl. The hotel is close to the ocean, the Santa Monica Pier and lots of great restaurants and stores. Coming from the East Coast the decor was definitely what you think of for California, beautiful. The room was great and we had a view of the ocean. The staff was helpful.

Right near the 3rd st, santa monica pier, and the beach, this is a gem of a hotel with a great penthouse bar. Staff is accomodating, only drawback is parking and lack of pool. We would definitely come back though

Dear mobywizza, Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you departed with wonderful memories and that you would definitely return. Overnight parking fees throughout all Santa Monica hotels are similar, but we do our very best to stay slightly below others!

The hotel is well located; the beach and the main shopping promenade are quick walks. Rooms are bright, well lit, and a nicely sized. Bathroom is a bit small, but once you get into the shower you'll forget about that. Towels are thick. Loved the robe and slippers. The entire hotel is very clean and well cared for.

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.
