I visited the Huntley in July 2013 and what an amazing experience it was to visit the west coast.

Excellent location, the beach is a 5-10 minute walk as its not on the street level and you have to walk down to it. All the shops, restaurants, Starbucks, bookstores are all of walking distance of the hotel.

The Staff were always friendly and extremely helpful.

NO FREE WIFI which is a downfall but not the end of the world as they have open street wifi in most locations around the shops etc. Wifi charge i think was but $12 a day or something like that. But they do have MACs that you can use in their business area with free printing facilities which was handy for directions and printing boarding passes.

In terms of main attractions of LA going to downtown and hollywood and other sights i would advise getting a car rental with a sat nav. Much cheaper than taxis and you can explore all that you want with no time pressure or at no extra cost . Valet parking was well operated but the daily charge is a little pricey $33 per day.

The hotel has amazing views, we were located on the 8th floor and it was just picture perfect. The hotel does have a restaurant and bar which is very nice and again the views from the very top are just breathe taking.

I stayed in a room which had 4 people which was a little bit of a squeeze as the rooms are not that big enough to cater 4 adults but it did have 2 double beds. But we were out most of day so the space wasn't a real issue.

NOTE: Friday and saturdays nights are busy as people socialise at the top floor bar and restaurant and then it eventually turns into a club with the music and guests being a little noisy so if you like your peace and quiet don't have a room too high up to the Top floor.

As it was hot the mini fridge was quite small so its hard to store your own drinks or snacks inside as they pack it out with expensive treats. But if you ask they can empty it out for you to use at your own leisure!

Overall a lovely stay! I would definitely return to the Huntley when next in Santa Monica.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not too near to the restaurant level!

I'm in LA once a month and this is a nice hotel... Great location and excellent staff... For sure my preferred hotel when in Santa Monica... I generally stay at the Sheraton and the only thing I missed was that lovely espresso machine.,. Wish these guys at least had a coffee machine... Outside of that it was great :)

Simply put, I LOVE this place. I go to LA 4 - 5 times a year for business and stay here every time. It's gorgeous, great service, perfect location, and has a sexy bar/restaurant on the top floor that I really appreciate. Stay here. You won't find better - I guarantee it.
