Huntley Santa Monica

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

The hotel

Retreat to this stylish hotel in a residential pocket of Santa Monica, yet just a shell's throw from the beach and Third Street Promenade. The Huntley is both classy and playful, with a modern urban design, and those little touches that make a difference — we all love a chocolate on the pillow at turndown. But perhaps the real wow factor at the hotel is The Penthouse restaurant and lounge, where both locals and guests come up to the rooftop to watch the sunset over the Ocean. With signature cocktails (and happy hour too), and bar food like cured meats and tacos, this one is definitely worth a visit.

I like it because it's smaller and has a warmer intimate feeling than the bigger hotels- and a very busy, sassy, cool People Bar and Restaurant upstairs with a View- Trendy and Fun- Dress for Success-

Been staying at the Huntley >10 years (4~5x a year) and I always look forward to coming back! Great remodel a couple years ago, true boutique hotel. Fantastic personalized service, special thanks to Comcierge Carlos! Can’t wait to get back to LA and the Huntley!

Major Shout out to Emilio Eliades,Rachel and Seth Bell! Every year around my birthday I try and go out of town from Santa Barbara. For the 3rd year in a row now Emilio and his entire team continue to provide a memorable experience to all guests. The utmost professionalism is in full display. Rachel and her positive and funny attitude just makes the night that much better. The Huntley hotel is classy and sexy. The only thing missing is a pool. I will most definitely be back for round 4 next year in October or November, maybe sooner! Thanks again everyone !! Read less
