Wanted to LOVE it. We come to Santa Monica often enough and have stayed at ACE (a bit noisy) and ViceRoy and some others. Good Location. 1408 room was quiet and good partial ocean view (Fri night mid Feb cost us $630.) Check in gentleman was switched on, changed our floor so we were not below the DJ (that would have been BAD so specify if you want quiet on weekends). WONT GO BACK. Valet forgot to charge Tesla, Okay mistakes happen. However they then argued with us three times and very rude. Hotel washed their hands of it saying it was not their group. MISTAKE: hotel chose to partner with this valet company and they should have stepped up. How people handle mistakes makes all the difference! For example a BH hotel, did same thing, but comped our parking and said please come back parking will be compd next time. This hotel just argued. Finally the assistant manager comped the parking (was told the GM is not on site almost ever - not a good sign). We just wanted our car charged. It was a problem for us. We had called ahead about the charger too (though concierge did not return our call - but we spoke to check in and they confirmed charger for Tesla). Cons: valet area is overly congested and ripe for an accident. It took us another 20 minutes to get they had a back up, cars would come in and then have to be moved like groundhog day, finally we were out and then late for our college visit! No water bottles, was told i could walk to gym to get a cup of water. No tea in the room, when i called for some. was told they might charge me. They had coffee only in room. At over $600 a night, they should have tea too or comp it. At check in not told about breakfast upstairs so wasted more time coming down to the coffee place they pointed out on the first floor. breakfast chillquilles were good but took a long time and a bit stingy on the avocado. nice view, but they just don't aim to please. Part of the fun of a nice hotel is feeling pampered a bit, Great service is key! This place needs some help. Look elsewhere. And so bummed as we really wanted to love it. Maybe if valet company changes and management steps up would we consider it but they did not even try to win us back.

I love staying at the Huntley Santa Monica Beach! I grew up in Santa Monica and would come to the Penthouse at the Huntley, but have only recently started staying here for business trips. The location is perfect - close enough to the action, but far away enough from the raucous that is Third Street Promenade. Additionally, the rooms are pristine, beautiful, chic, and definitely trendy. I had a Premier King and my view of Santa Monica was perfect. Also, the amenities are luxurious and wonderful...seriously, no complaints here. The employees at the Huntley are also super welcoming and friendly. I was checked in quickly and seamlessly. The one time that there was an issue with my room, it was addressed in a timely manner. However, if I could provide the Huntley with a piece of feedback, it would be to do something about the main elevators. They are horrendously slow and tend to overcrowd quickly during the evenings (people going to the Penthouse). Otherwise, perfect stay!

We stayed here last Friday night when we went to the Genesis Open. I wished we stayed the weekend. Beautiful hotel and hard to fault. Nothing has been sparred in this hotel and beds are incredibly comfortable.

The Huntley is ideally situated on a quiet street but still walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Pacific Ocean. We chose an ocean view room and were very pleased. The room was large enough for two adults and a teenage son. The two queen sized beds were comfortable and feather free upon request. The few hiccups (burnt light bulb and stain on bedding) were promptly taken care off. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We would recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

An excellent stay, I could not fault any with this hotel, staff, location, service all 5star+ A short walk and your over looking Santa Monica Beach. The location for us was just perfect. One final word would be for the reception staff the went the extra mile every time.
