“Lovely weekend stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Stayed at the Huntley on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. Front Office Manager David checked us in...noted we were from Chicago and was really friendly and authentic. Room was beautiful, love the Bvulgari amenities and little chocolate next to my bed. Location is great for walking everywhere in Santa Monica. We also took the house car to the airport with a lovely lady who was professional and courteous. Lastly, the Penthouse at sunset is a must for a send-off cocktail.

We loved this hotel. Our room was beautiful with a partial view of the ocean. Great, helpful, friendly, and efficient check-in. Valet service was superb - called down and our car was waiting for us. Had drinks and appetizers at the Penthouse Restaurant - excellent and the view is unparalleled. Walking and running distance to all attractions - Beach is right there, 3rd St. Promanode, shopping galore, and trendy restaurants

I would certainly stay there again. (we ARE A COUPLE THAT LIKES OUR PRIVACY AND THIS HOTEL OFFERED THAT FOR US)

Room Tip: ask for a room with a beach view. we were on the 12th floor and there was NO noise -

Well designed, perfect location, nicely thought through details, good fitness center. Quiet room with modest view of Santa Monica mountains. Not the warmest reception at check in but amenities made up for it. An all around great experience!

Great hotel. We stayed one night on drive down to San Diego from San Fran. Very helpful staff. Lovely rooms. Penthouse for breakfast is a must. No pool but Santa Monica beach nearby!! Would recommend for couples, families or business travellers.

This hotel is a lovely boutique property. It is small, but it has extra touches that you'll enjoy and remember. The rooms don't really have 'AMAZING' views, but who cares? It's a really comfortable, laid back, California feel. My room was more than spacious, it was awesome. I had a seating area and, had I had friends, I'd invite them over for cocktails. AND - the bathtub is rather fabulous. Get a newer room, not the 'older style'. I don't know how many of those are left, but it's worth requesting. I liked my room, but I know most people would prefer the newer ones.

The Penthouse: This is quite fun!!! This is an area upstairs that is SCREAMING for a little outdoor seating, but when I was there it didn't have any. Oh, if it did, it'd be perfect. This is a great place for a lunch with a friend, brunch with your love, etc........in the daytime. At night, prepare yourself for the red ropes that cut you off, my friend. No guest staying here needs to worry about getting to their room, but it is really interesting to see a space be so different in day and night. The Penthouse is a hot spot, make no mistake!! And make no mistake: If you are looking for a late night scene; look no further! If you're looking to avoid that: Do NOT try to go there for an after hours cocktail! Otherwise, it's pretty cool!

I travel a lot for business and invariably find myself always comparing this hotel to that hotel.
The Huntley is very much like a lot of city business hotels. Medium sized rooms, mini bar tv etc. Good coffee, good breakfast and fast internet.
The Huntley is just one block back from the promenade and one block across from Wilshire Blvd, so quiet and off the traffic, but 30 seconds walk to where you need to be.
The Gym is very small, but just adequate and the Penthouse Bar and Restaurant on the top floor has got to have one of the best views of ANY international hotel bar.
What really sets this hotel apart from others is the quality of the staff. All staff I encountered were helpful, courteous and went out of their way to making me feel welcome. Sure people work harder for tips in the US, but this was not evident, nor expected in any of the staff encounters that I had.
In Santa Monica for a few nights - this is the place. Oh, and there's a Pontiac shaped like a chicken in the car park.
