Very Good Choice

Reviewed 24 october, 2021

We are so glad we chose The Huntley for our recent stay in Santa Monica. It is located on a lovely tree lined street just a short walk from too many restaurants to list, as well as the Santa Monica Pier. The hotel itself is quiet attractive, and very secure. We were upgraded to an ocean view room through our credit card, and it definitely did have an ocean view, even if it wasn't directly in front of you. No craning of the neck involved. The room itself was spacious with a walk in closet and a good choice of seating. A mini fridge was requested when we reserved our room, but it had to be moved in upon our arrival. The excuse was that the room we were originally booked for was not ready (it was after 3, so not sure why?). We also had an issue with the plumbing, which was resolved within an hour of our call to the desk. Aside from those two minor things, we cannot say anything negative at all about our stay. We also got a $25 breakfast credit each morning. Given the price of eating at a restaurant in the area, it turned out to be a convenient choice and a pleasure to enjoy the incredible view, good food, and good service at The Penthouse restaurant for what it would have cost to have a simple coffee and pastry at an ordinary cafe. This is not a hotel for a family looking for a beach resort. If you want that, you need to look closer to the Pier. This is definitely a place for business travelers and adults looking for a restful, pleasant, safe, quiet, convenient place to stay. There is no question where we will stay on our next visit to Santa Monica. This was the right choice.


Frustrating Customer Service re Cigarette Smells

Reviewed 18 october, 2021

Booked a king ocean view room and was very excited. Upon arrival was given a room upgrade with American Express to a king suite and was so excited. Unfortunately upon entering the room it smelled of cigarettes. Called front desk to inquire if we were on a smoking floor and was told its a non smoking hotel. I let them know the room smelled of cigarettes on day one of our stay and asked for someone to come fix the issue and didn't even get housekeeping to come until the third day. The suite number 913 was overall nice but looked dated and stains on carpet. On the 5th day I called again to inquire about the smell and was told a technician would come to the room and it would take 2 hours to clear out the smell and then a few hours with open windows to air our the chemicals from the machine they used. The technician did not arrive until late in the evening and the machine was still clearing out the room when we got back from dinner to turn in for the night. The technician told us a person stayed in the room previously for 2 weeks who smoked non-stop and was asked to leave the hotel, and they were supposed to fix the smell prior to anyone else staying in the room but didn't get to it. When I went to speak to front desk staff I was quite frustrated, demanded a hotel credit which was given as well as waived resort fee. (NOTE they charge $25 per day additional resort fee when there are no additional resort amenities). We also had to sleep in another room that night because whatever machine left a horrible chemical scent in the room. When I checked out I had a bill of over $100 and inquired about it with front desk to dispute it and they simply said I would not be charged. The hotel credit given only covered one breakfast on our last morning and upon check out the customer service was horrible. Note that Apple Maps says this hotel has a pool which it does not, when we asked where the pool was the staff sarcastically said "2 blocks to your right is the biggest pool in the world" referring to the ocean.


Old, noisy, long row in elevators, terrible service, does not worth the price
