A wonderful location with a fantastic restaurant on top floor. Rooms are surprising spacious. Decor is contemporary and modern. Very close to beach. A wonderful experience, I would most definitely book again.

Have been to this hotel a number of times over the last 6 years. Only stayed one night this time around. Nothing has changed......thankfully. Service is excellent as are the very beautiful rooms. The bar on the top is a must at sunset armed with a cocktail or two. Close to all the shopping, restaurants and the beach. if you are visiting this area you must seriously consider staying at this hotel.

Only a block or two off the action in Santa Monica between the beach, Montana, and the 4th Avenue Mall, this very classy place has great, updated rooms, a very sharp and hip staff, and a superb roof top bar and restaurant with great views of the Pacific, good food, unreal weekend bar scene, and reasonable prices.

I was very impressed with the Huntley. The staff is professional and attentive. My room had great views of Santa Monica, the beach, the hills and Hollywood. When the fog cleared, I could see LA as well.

The bed and pillows were equivalent to Marriott standards, and the toiletries provided were Lather brand. The bathroom was small and not all rooms have tubs.

The hotel was quiet. I asked for a high floor but not higher than 16. The restaurant and lounge are on the 18th floor and have incredible views and a wonderful Cali atmosphere, but I would not want to stay directly beneath it.

The rates are appropriate for the quality of the rooms, professional staff, the location and the upscale amenities. Absolutely my first choice when staying in Santa Monica.

Room Tip: Request a high floor, Oceanside, but not higher than 16.

During my stay at the Huntley, the staff were incredibly polite and attentive. If you don't eat at the Penthouse restaurant, at least take the glass elevator at the front of the hotel and go up to take a look at the view.

The Huntley is in a fantastic location for shopping and access to Venice Beach. Santa Monica pier is a relatively short walk away and you can find a pedestrianised street full of shops, cafés and restaurants on 3rd street. If you want to go further, the concierge will summon a cab from "Taxi! Taxi!" and you'll soon be on your way.

The room felt a little small, but I suspect I'm getting spoiled by random upgrades at other hotels, so that may not be a valid observation. It was perfectly fine for one person, but I imagined it would be a little cosy if I had my husband in tow.

Note that this is a pretty high-end area. If you're looking some something very casual and relaxed, this may not be your thing. If you like the kind of place where the "beautiful people" hang out, this is likely the spot for you.

More than anything, it seems to be full of business people (which is also why I stayed) and I will happily come back here on my next trip.

We stayed here for a few nights at the end of our honeymoon back in January this year. We had been travelling for over 3 weeks and this was a fantastic way to end. The service was fantastic, the hotel was beautiful and location was excellent. The sunset from the rooftop restaurant/bar was amazing - worth going to see just that! Will definitely be back.

We stayed at The Huntley for one night to celebrate our anniversary. We were very impressed with the location and the hotel's proximity to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. Our room was large and we had a partial ocean view. The decor in the room was simple and unimpressive, but the room was clean and very quiet at night. We had dinner outside of the hotel because the restaurant was booked. Call ahead if you want a reservation on a Saturday night. We returned to hotel after dinner and went to the bar for an after dinner drink. The bar was hopping! We stayed for a few hours enjoying the music, people, and delicious drinks. We highly recommend the coconut espresso martini...YUM!
