We had a great stay over Christmas at the Huntley. It is walkable to so many great restaurants and shopping (all price ranges) and a 4 min walk down to the beach. The rooms were smaller but appropriate for downtown Santa Monica and well appointed - great bed, linens, pillows and robes. We enjoyed the ocean/Mountain View during our time there as well as the nspresso machine. Our maid service was excellent, I even left a ring out of the table by accident and she organized it and set it in a stack when I got back later that day. During our stay, there was a small external fire in the middle of the night that required us to evacuate. The night manager handled it like a champ and the Santa Monica PD and FD were efficient and communicative. It was an unfortunate thing to occur but honestly, we were super impressed how the Huntley handled it and kept guests comfortable and safe. Great stay and we would certainly stay again.

Good sized room, very quiet with nice views. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Only minor thing was the small bathroom. All else was great!

Staff was extremely kind and attentive. Profesional and courteous. They value my Orbitz Platinum Account into consideration and I love that. It was a great place for my recovery

Our stay at the Huntley was bar none. Stacy was absolutely incredible and I must say that she really set the standard for an incredible weekend. Thank you Stacy, you’re amazing! The room was gorgeous, the service was always quick & all the employees were so warm & welcoming. I will be recommending the Huntley to all!!!

Great location and close to where you want to be. Beautiful views from rooftop restaurant and food was good. Service was just 3 star though. There is something about the staff that just does not seem like they want to work or are happy. The King beds could use King size pillows too. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. I don't understand the $46 for valet on top of the $25 hotel fee per night though? There is no pool so I feel that is a bit excessive.

Valet parking is a bit steep, but considering the area and the sorroundings of the hotel, I can only understand the reason for this price. Only the area of improvements need to be at the breakfast in the restaurant. They need to upgrade service. That's all.

Always love staying at the Huntley. Great value, great staff and great experience.

Nice room very clean. Walking distance to 3rd. Street. Shopping and very close restaurants. Their restaurant has good food and a great happy hour. It does not have a pool but close to beach. Not sure what the $25 resort fee is for.

Hard to get parking there. Staff is very nice and accommodating.

Nice room. Great location. Staff very efficient...paid just the right amount of attention to my liking, which is not much...but then again, there was not a need for more. Everything went quite smoothly.

My fiancé and I stayed here for our honeymoon get away. The staff was nice and upgraded our room for free. Everyone was kind and made suggestions as to where we should eat and other activities. The room was spacious and hi tech. We really enjoyed our stay.

This hotel is clean, quiet and close to everything (shopping, beach, attractions, etc.) in the heart of Santa Monica. It is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff is very professional and knowledgable. The services are exceptional, and the place is reasonably priced.

Close to beach and shopping Quiet Nice room views

Fantastic Santa Monica stay. Mother & Daughter Breakaway. All perfect, great staff.

I love this hotel. Well-located and with ocean views and a great staff, it’s full service and the rooms are modern, wonderful, and so comfortable. This is my second time staying and I didn’t like the room layout as much but still had a great tell.

From soup to nuts, our stay was superb. Location, service and amenities could not have been better.

Terrific hotel , outstanding staff and service from check in to luggage assistance to livery and follow on

Greetings Jecarti - Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I've shared your comments with our department heads to ensure your voice is heard throughout the building. Although valet and the hotel amenity fee may seem high priced, I can assure you that the Huntley is actually the most economically friendly hotel with regards to valet and amenity fee pricing. Our amenity fee includes an array of amenities including WiFi, bottles of water and chocolates during turndown service, access to our gym and business center, daily newspaper delivery service, shoe shine service and beach towels. Additionally, by summer of 2019, we will have a jacuzzi on site. I hope to welcome you back soon and until then wish you all the best. Sincerely, Jake Dlouhy Director of Front Office Operations

Good Day Jackie - Thank you for the 5 out of 5 review! While I can certainly understand the price of Valet seems extremely high, I'd like to inform you we are one of the most economically priced hotel with regards to Valet. Additionally, I'm sad to learn of your shortfalls in service at the Penthouse. You comments have been shared and proper action has been taken. Until next time we wish you all the best.
