"Wish we stayed longer"
Beautiful hotel. Upon our check in, we were upgraded to a one room suite. Bathroom was huge and the room had a great ocean view. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Very nice hotel right across the street from the beach. Staff was very nice and the room was very comfortable. Restaurant on top of the hotel was great and had wonderful views of city and ocean. Walking distance to Santa Monica pier and stairway access to the beach.

Absolutely the best. Our room was gorgeous, very big. Even had a walk-in closet with full length mirror and safe, and 2 luxurious robes. Bathroom was beautiful with tiled shower and premium products. Beds were very comfortable. Decorated beautifully. Walking distance to the beach and the promenade. Will definitely recommend, and I hope we can stay here again someday.

"Noisy"
Mandatory valet parking so you can't get to your car. If you forget something in your car, it takes an act of congress to access it. Chair in our room was dirty and stained (gross). Car alarms went off all night completely negating the comfort of the bed and soft sheets. Bathroom was small with door hitting you when exiting the shower. No coffee in room. Front desk woman with tatoos all over her arms was rude and unprofessional upon our check out. We got conflicting information on when we had to move our car out. Won't come back.

"Unhappy guest"
Incredibly rude and unprofessional front desk and Manager on duty. Refused to help my daughter were going to send her away because the name on the fully paid for 500$ room was not correct. Said "sorry we are fully booked and cannot check u in." I had to call in the middle of the night and demand the correction and demand they check her in. Not what one would expect from this hotel not the type of guest relations that should be instilled on both the front desk and manager on duty.

Staff were courteous. Facility was clean and well kept. Room was comfortable and provided view of the ocean. Not quite beach front property, but not bad either. Location is great, very short walk to the Third Street Promenade, and of course, Santa Monica Beach. Amenities were provided, along with snack bar and mini fridge. Room service was prompt and courteous.

"Not very impressive"
I was fairly disappointed in this hotel. It promises (and charges) a lot but does not deliver in a hundred small ways. A few examples: giving us (a couple) one key and making us go back for another; charging (high) fees for every conceivable service (wifi, parking, water, etc.); bathroom incredibly small (with a shower that did not drain and a toilet seat crammed against the shower and unevenly set). It all looks really pretty at first, but then you look closer and see the chipped paint in the bathroom, the cheap plywood drawers off their tracks, and lots of other things (e.g. the beds were just alright and certainly not to compare to the Westin). Also, the location is off the beach front road, but the hotels facing the water were the same price (and I wish I had done that since this hotel was nothing to write home about. On the plus side, it was clean and they gave me a newspaper in a cute bag in the morning. In general, meh.

"Huntley is the best place to stay"
We've stayed here before and it's located in great spot. The valet people are the best. The room's are nice but can really vary from gorgeous to nice. The bed is really comfortable. They are always clean but we did have a housekeeper announce but then opened the door too quickly. The Penthouse restaurant is the best around. Great drinks, awesome food, the best staff. We loved it. When in Santa Monica the Huntley is really the only hotel we'll stay with. Hotel staff could be friendlier and more consistent. We went to get a coffee and the girl behind the counter was not too friendly and made us uncomfortable.

I spent one night at the Huntley to celebrate my birthday. I had dinner at The Penthouse, which was delicious with yummy cocktails. The valets were super helpful and polite. I was only slightly disappointed that my oceanview room was more like what I would expect other hotels to categorize as partial oceanview. However, overall, I had a very nice stay and would stay there again.

"Not what it aspires to be"
I was on a trip in which I stayed in three luxury hotels in 3 different cities, and this one was the worst. Some of the staff is wonderful (bell station), while others are pretentious. The woman that checked us in at the desk was new and confused about who was going into what room. Still, she was borderline rude to members of my not so well traveled midwestern family. The bartender upstairs gave succinct and not especially helpful answers to questions regarding different types of drinks. The waitress upstairs gave me the once over as I had my "game-day" clothes on in her restaurant (only there to have a drink). Good view of the city from up top but it would have been nice to have been treated more politely. The fitness center is small and very limited. Location is great, which was a bonus. I booked a room that had an "ocean view" and I would say that it was a bit of an exaggeration. Yes, I could see the ocean if I leaned and looked out the window in a particular way...

"Overly priced for what it's worth"
Room was decent. Stayed in a 2 queen bed room. Quiet first night, loud second night with people partying in room next to us at 2am. Had to call receptionist for security to talk to them. Also, BEWARE: there is NO FREE PARKING! It's $30/night valet, otherwise be prepared to park on streets with lots of parking restrictions meters!! Our stay ended up being way pricier than what I'm willing to pay for which was already expensive not to include valet parking!! We tried looking for parking elsewhere, but inconvenient and much farther than downtown/beach area. Only pros I like is that it's within walking distance from hotel to shopping/downtown. Long walk to the pier, but if you're adventurous, I recommend it. It's a pretty scenic walk to the pier. Front desk staff were not really friendly. Valet staff was friendly however.

"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.

"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.

"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.

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.

"Unexpected treasure"
My wife and I stayed at the Huntley in early November 2014 for 3 nights. Due to a conference being on we weren't able to stay at our usual place in Santa Monica From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the Bell staff, to the welcoming smiles at Reception, the 3 days stay here was a fantastic experience. Our room was great, the Penthouse restaurant and Bar on the 17th level served great drinks with friendly service and a fantastic view of the Californian sunsets The hotel was 1 block back from the 3rd St Promenade, but set in a quiet residential area, with a short walk to most things I can't recommend this hotel highly enough and will be our 1st choice next time in Santa Monica

Lame front desk staff Inexperienced and weak service. I was given the wrong room. Got moved with little apologies. For the price I feel I could have strayed somewhere much nicer with a higher level of service. The restaurant was exceptional. This level of service is what I expected throughout. The food was top notch and the service was amazing. The location was great. But for 550 a night, the Huntley could really step up their service game.
