This hotel is one of the ideal locations in Santa Monica. Its well situated to the pier, 3rd Street Promenade and one block from the beach.
The hotel has a cool bar and restaurant on the roof. Its a trendy place to hang out. Here are the but(s)... I stayed in a suite and it was smaller then you would expect. It was nice, but not a true suite like quality due to its smaller size. Plus, the work area has no place to plug in your laptop and the seat is an ottoman which can get uncomfortable. Even worse, you pay $500 for a room and they still charge you $9.95 for wifi.
They didn't clean the room until late in the day and one day I had to even call for service. The food in the restaurant is good, but not amazing. Again its more about the location. Great views and cool atmosphere makes it a great place to dine.
The other but, I found it on the expensive side for what you are getting. Its a great place to experience, but I would return to the Fairmont which is right across the street. Rooms all have great views and great pool area. Plus, its typically been available at a lower price. Keep in mind, The Huntley is a cooler place, where the Fairmont is an older style. Although, every time I have stayed at the Fairmont ran into a few celebrities.
Don't take this as to negative, I have very high expectations when I pay over $500 per night for just the room. If you are more into a party atmosphere then the Huntley will serve you well.
I am still giving the Huntley a 4 star rating as it has many advantages and absolutely worth a try. You won't be wasting your $500 per night, but for this amount I would expect the full five star feeling.
