We decided to stay at the Huntley because shutters on the beach was doing some room renovations and other trip advisors warned us it was very noisy. This hotel is very nice and most of the employees were very friendly and helpful and apologetic when things like having to wait 25 minutes for your car occurred. We were upgraded to...

This hotel definitely cuts corners on quality and service but you won't be able to tell from its beautiful website or marketing photos. Front desk service was terrible and the beds were Motel 6 quality. Charged for an expensive mini-bar item we didn't touch, the front desk told me they would need to check and call me after they did...

Immaculate, friendly staff, well appointed rooms (with Bulgari shower products, no less). Bed was incredibly comfortable and views of the ocean were fantastic. Nespresso coffee machine in the rooms, so your morning starts off well.Well worth the price tag

My best laid plans for a romantic one-night birthday staycation in a Premier Ocean View Suite were dashed on the rocks of shoddy customer service here at the Huntley. Here's the lowdown...About 30 minutes after we settled into the cozy king bed for a celebratory slumber it suddenly sounded like the management had turned on the Trevi Fountain right above...

not the best looking hotel in santa monica : it has the look of a tower...still the room was big (with 2 queen beds) and quite modern except for the windows that were 'tired'...good breakfast at the restaurant on the top floor. good and efficient service overall (check in, room service, valet and check out). decent location in santa monica.

In an area of ridiculously expensive hotels, I feel the Huntley is the best hotel with the best value... It lacks major amenities like a pool and really high end gym...

The hotel room we stayed in was not huge, but the feng shui was perfect. The style in which the room is decorated is elegant with hues of silver and grey and is bright and cheerful as well. Room was extremely quiet although the hotel was well-occupied. The service throughout the hotel was excellent. The Penthouse restaurant has beautiful views...

One of our rooms in the 14th was spacious and had a walk in closet with built-ins. The "ocean view" was viewable from the edge of one bed, laying just so.

This is a hotel that is trying very hard to be hip.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
