Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

Our stay over Christmas was perfect. The hotel and rooms are beautiful + the views from the penthouse restaurant are breathtaking. But - the thing that made our stay extraordinary was the staff! They were so attentive and helpful, they even made an effort to address us by name

I have stayed at The Huntley several times over the last few years and it just gets better and better. The recent room renovations and common area updates are spot on. This is a hotel photographers go to for photo shoots. I love the under bed lighting so much I installed the

We had an overnight stay here prior to our flight back to the UK. The hotel is perfectly located with great views of Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean. A visit to the top floor restaurant and bar is well worthwhile. The views are spectacular. We didn’t have dinner there but

Good Day CEMARMITAGE - Thank you so much for taking the time to write this amazing review and allowing us the opportunity to host your stay in Santa Monica. Unlike many hotels in Santa Monica, we are unique in that our location is fabulous; away from the hustle and bustle of the beach crowd however, minutes away from all the main attractions. Additionally, I'm so happy to learn you loved the Penthouse! Although you didn't get a chance to have dinner with us during this stay, I'm pleased to learn you will be back to allow us the pleasure of serving you again. Until next time, we wish you all the best! Sincerely, Jake Dlouhy Director of Front Office Operations

Not sure. We had a rental car and didn’t do any tours but they appeared willing to help with plans.

What is the price for parking at The Huntley?
It was $47 per day. Very steep, but other places (some with less expensive nightly fares) had just as high parking places. There was a public garage several blocks away, but would have been a big hassle for us to bring suitcases, et cetera over. Good luck!

Hi! Can you please tell me the last time your rooms were renovated?
The room we stayed in was renovated within the last few months! It was so modern and updated with cleanliness being my top priority, and it was pristine! We were on 11th floor.

Thats a question for the hotel directly. You might want to check out robe works. They use robe works at the high end spas in pebble beach. You can even custom design them online
