One of the best hotels I have ever been too. Beautiful rooms with the wow factor!! Definitely would recommend staying here (I know I will). On a night the lovely house keepers come in and draw the curtains, have the lights on for you arriving, unfold the duvets and leave you some chocolates and some water with beautiful card with motivational quotes Lovely touch! Very close to then beach and 3rd street promenade shops. Awesome stay!!
I had an event for 75 people in the Regal Room and Terrace on the second floor and it was spectacular! The Huntley Santa Monica Beach staff were beyond incredible.
The Events Director, Mandy Amini, was wonderful to work with. She was always focused on making sure that our needs were met and she was incredibly gracious every step of the way. It is always such a pleasure to work with her!
Adrian Perez was extremely accommodating and also focused on making sure that everything ran smoothly before, during and after the event. He was friendly, kind and professional. His staff during the event were so skilled at their jobs. They maintained the exact right balance between being friendly and being professional. The Huntley staff was what made our guests feel like they were being treated so well.
Of course, the person who sets the tone at The Huntley is their gracious General Manager, Manju Raman. She makes everyone feel welcome and appreciated. She is active in the community and engages with many local non-profits. She is a gem!
Bravo to The Huntley team! They are the BEST!
