"Great hotel with beautiful surroundings"
We loved the hotel. It is conveniently located to the 3rd Street Promenade and the views from the hotel are gorgeous (especially from the roof-top restaurant)! The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Service is top-notch and the food in the restaurant is delicious. The staff is courteous and helpful and the hotel is well-maintained. […] We would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not return"
Staff were very friendly and efficient. Lobby was very modern, clean, and attractive; however, our room was very boring. The chair was stained and appeared dirty in general, the bathtub didn't drain, and the overall ambience was very disappointing. We did have an ocean view. Overall, not worth the amount paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Hotel, will be going back!"
Make sure you have a meal in The Penthouse, great view and food!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Trendy, but not very welcoming"
We had been there before, so we knew the bathroom would be tiny and there would be hoards of 20-somethings in the elevators at night going to and from the nightclub. . However, we didn't expect the toilet to fail to flush. When we checked in, I asked if I could have the New York Times delivered to the room in the morning, I was told that would be done. […] The paper wasn't there the next morning. When I went downstairs to ask, I was told that I could go buy it in the gift shop. Not even an apology for having made a promise they were unwilling to honor. The hotel charges $9.95/day for Internet. Most of the high-end U.S. hotels I stay in have dropped Internet charges by now. In summary, this is an expensive hotel with so-so maintenance that nickel-and-dimes its guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ask for a good view and a room that doesn't have a"
Wanted a room with a nice view -- got a terrible view. Expedia said there were smoking rooms -- there were not. Walls were thing and I could hear the TV from the next room all night. However, as a result of my complaints, the hotel comped my expenses -- food, room service etc. which was very decent. So I am not unhappy, although the inability to sleedp […] was a problem. Staff was extremely friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful with Elevator Shortage"
Wonderful modern hotel on 2nd street, 2 blocks from Ocean and 1 block from 3rd street promonade shopping/dinning. Stayed in King suite and loved it. The Roof is an extremely busy night spot on the top floor, so elevators are in short supply late Friday and Sat. Room lighting is low and romantic, if you need intense lighting, sit next to a lamp. My preferences […] are Fairmont, Huntley then Shutters. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Amazing views & service"
This is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at - friendly service, beautiful rooftop bar/restaurant and lots to do close by. The rooms are very clean and the service turned down the beds and put music on for us at night. The bar food was amazing, decor was beautiful and music was fun.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location and wonderful lounge and room. Just wonderful and want to let family and friend experience this when they visit here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Small Rooms"
The Huntley is very well situated, one block from the 3rd Street Promenade and two blocks from the beach and the Pacific Ocean. Nicely updated and clean facility. If you are used to hotel travel, you will find the Huntley's rooms to be small, the closet difficult to access, poorly thought out lighting in the bathroom and thin towels for an upscale hotel. […] Hotel charges for internet access but does not have wireless. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. one plock from the beach, quiet on the back harbor side, some traffic noise on the PCH side however.Genuine Expedia guest review

Very elegant and quiet. We had a very good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel - close to the beach and 3rd Street Prominade. Superb dining on the top floor. Service was excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Crowd was a bit young for us. Twenty something's sitting on each others laps making out as we entered in the lobby. Felt more like a club scene. Maybe should have taken it up to the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect for Engagement Night Away"
Hotel and accommodations were a little more that I usually spend, but for a special occasion (engagement), it was the perfect setting. The staff was very helpful and after we told the front desk we just got engaged, the hostess upgraded us to a junior suite. One unfortunate item was the rooftop Bar / Restaurant is very popular and we were unable to […] eat there as it was already booked. I recommend making your dinner reservations ahead of your stay.

"I LOVE THIS PLACE!!"
This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. Close to the promenade for a walk above the beach. Close to Montana for good shopping and coffee. Close to Core Fusion across the street for exercise. The staff is amazing too. I wish I could live here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Huntley Santa Monica"
Was not pleased with this hotel at all. The room was very small with 2 queen beds. Probably would have been better with 1 king. One of the beds was so close to the closet it was difficult to use the closet. The full length mirror was on the closet door which was useless as the bed was in front of it. There were no drawers to put clothes in, so you have […] to live out of your suitcase, We were supposed to get a free USA today each day, but only got 2 out of 3. If you choose to stay at this hotel, request a room far away from the elevators as, they are very loud (and slow). It sounded as if people were rollerskating on the other side of the wall. Very disappointed that I used reward nights for this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slight Tune Up Needed"
While I think the overall experience of the hotel is 4-star, the bathrooms really need an overhaul and the rooms might be in need of a sprucing. Otherwise it was fine but definitely not up to the same standards as competitors like Viceroy, Shutters and Casa del Mar, despite the pricing being very similar.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very helpful & friendly staff. Beautiful (and clean) room and "hip" atmosphere. Walking distance to amenities. Ocean view was decent ( but not spectacular), but did not matter. We loved the Huntley!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Huntley in Santa Monica- Not for sleeping"
The hotel room itself was very nice and the bed comfortable; the bathroom was very modern and had a great view. The dining room/bar was very upscale and offered nice sunset views. The lobby was small (low-ceilinged) and not as impressive as I might have hoped for the rate of the room. However, the main issue was that there was a party going on in the […] rooftop bar/dining room on Floor 18, until 2:00 am and we could not sleep until it ended. We thought about asking to move rooms but packing up at 1:00 am was not ideal. When we mentioned it upon check-out, they said politely "Sorry, it was a busy night." We will select another Santa Monica hotel next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel except for the nightclub"
I enjoyed this hotel in general. It had a great location for where I needed to be during my visit. The view from the rooftop restaurant was outstanding. My only nitpick is that I didn't enjoy the bar in the evening. The restaurant turns into a noisy, crowded nightclub. The crowd was unappealing. I'm a person who enjoys a nice cocktail or two in the […] evening and having one at my hotel avoids driving. But, the bar was so crowded and noisy that I had to wait for a seat and deal with the "meat market" atmosphere. Instead of the loud music and singles scene, I would appreciate something a little bit more laid back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The Huntley Stunk!"
This hotel could be much more. However, there are some aspects of this hotel that are COMPLETELY offputting. First, they use some sort of "aromatherapy" in the lobby. The problem: it is too much! I took two breaths, and started wheezing. I used my inhaler for the rest of our stay. We started entering the lobby thru the garage because that door was closest […] to the elevators. Second, there is no place to sit in the lobby. Yes, there are benches, and burl wood stools. But, the decor is not welcoming, the ambient lighting nonexistant, and who wants to read a book or the newspaper or chat with someone in an uncomfortable setting. There was a patio, however, all of the smokers hung out there...... The location of the hotel was great, and the amenities in the room were good, but the atmosphere was so lacking that we couldn't wait for our stay to be over...we will not be back.

"Not great views, but great location & ambience"
We paid extra for the ocean view, expecting something similar to the photos on the website. No luck! Even if the fog had lifted, we would have had to stand at one end of the window and crane our necks to see white water. Book dinner reservations early. We called at 5:00 and were told next opening was at 9:30 p.m. No problem, we had a wonderful meal […] delivered by room service. Decor is trendy and chic; linens and spa products are divine; location is one of the best for outdoor activities. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica CA."
We were attending a wedding at the Fairmont hotel in Santa Monica so the Huntley was very convenient. In retrospect however, I wish I had spent the etra money and stayed at the Fairmont. The room, and specifically the bathroom, was very small; the corridors were so dark as to be hazardous and my biggest complaint, as petty as it may sound, was the bed […] frame. It was a wooden frame and protruded at least 3 inches beyond the mattress. The comforter on the bed was covering the frame so I smashed my shin on the corner of the frame two separate times. Very painful!! The one positive thing I can say about the hotel is that the mattress and pillows were very comfortable and I slept very soundly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice staff, clean, modern hotel. Ocean view was advertised, but we only got partial coastline (i.e. our windows faced the city). That was the only complaint, but not enough to bump it down a star. Pricy but worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Huntley is a Santa Monica Gem"
if you find yourself in LA do yourself a favor and head out to Santa Monica for a night at the Huntley. It's ideally located close to the Promenade, Beach and Montana Ave. There's a great bar scene in the roof top bar and the rooms are clean and spacious. The one issue...why does an upscale hotel like this still charge for WiFI?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Location but Overpriced and Poor Service"
Front desk kept me on hold for 14 minutes. Had a similar experience trying to retrieve my car from the valet, as did my wife. At these prices, the service should be much better and far less arrogant.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Location, location, location"
So close to 3rd promenade. Beds were extremely comfortable. Rooms were very cosy. Not a great view. As the building is older, although fully refurbished, there is a musty smell. Walls very thin and could clearly here other rooms. But for us that wasn't a big deal. The rooms were very nice and the location was everything. Reception area lovely. Would […] definetly recommend the Huntley. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great surprise for the room price and at short notice. Outstanding room, great restaurant and friendly staff. The usual major city cost like restaurant prices hotel parking and normal stuff.. coffee. take my advice head to Starbucks if you want a coffee in the morning. I would stay again, no question.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a double queen room which was large and comfortable. Our bathroom was small but worked well. Decor in the lobby and restaurant was goovy.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Ocean View room provided a wonderful view, and the room was very spacious, clean and very luxurious. The location was excellent - just one block from the beach and only 5 minutes walk from the pier - and the bar on the top floor of the hotel had excellent service and amazing views.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bad hotel riding fully on it's great location"
When i arrived despite booking and paying months in advance the room I booked with a king bed was unavailable, they didn't tell me this of course, I arrived in the room and had a queen bed. I phoned down, all I was told was sorry the hotel is full. I pushed a couple times, despite being told they would look into it and get back to me, they never did […] so I had to follow-up. Eventually I was given a $25 food voucher. The room itself was small, felt poorly maintained with door stoppers falling off, lights not working etc. The walls were paper thin, so thin I could hear my neighbours whisper, also the ocean view was blocked by fogged up windows. One of the nights I was staying was a special event in the penthouse bar/restaurant so good luck getting through the bouncer and line-up at the elevators despite being a guest. So despite the wonderful location in beautiful Santa Monica this was an extremely disappointing stay and felt I paid far too much for a bad hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
