The Huntley Hotel:
The Huntley Hotel
is an ultra-luxury boutique hotel on the beach in Santa Monica that is the pinnacle of Southern California beach living at its finest. The hotel's sign-in sheet serves as a testimonial of its vaulted status among jetsetters and affluent travelers. Its legacy is legendary with accolades aplenty from numerous highly regarded publications, such as Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, and Forbes.com. Every inch of the uber-posh inn is in sync to its bigger-than-life presence.
It is understandable why guests may simply opt to stay on the elegant hotel's premises their entire stay, even though the Huntley's proximity to many of Los Angeles' major attractions and hotspots makes it quite convenient to check out the entire city. The culturally diverse neighboring beach communities of Malibu and Venice run north and south, while Beverly Hills and Hollywood also are just short drives away.
Los Angeles' infamous traffic congestion is no problem at all with a chauffeur-driven Maserati Quattroportes to transport guests to popular local sites, such as the Santa Monica Pier, the Third Street Promenade, the Getty Center, Hollywood Boulevard, Venice Beach, and Universal Studios.
Meanwhile back at the hotel, there is the Penthouse restaurant. Gastronomically speaking, the Penthouse is a gourmand's delight with the American cuisine of exec chef Seth Greenburg. The dishes on the menu are strongly influenced by both French and Spanish accents. The plush atmosphere is as visually delightful as the food is scrumptious. The hotel's designer, Thomas Schoos, has maintained a décor that is open and light throughout.
While there are absolutely no average rooms to be had at the Huntley, three types of guestrooms and suites are available. All of the accommodations provide scenic oceanfront or city views, wireless high-speed Internet access, 42-inch-screen plasma televisions, and CD/DVD players.
How Suite It Is!
The "Suite Life" promotion is an example of the Huntley's indefatigable efforts to provide a unique experience for romantic couples seeking an intimate getaway. Stay in the fabulous Malibu or Signature suite and wake up to a complimentary breakfast in bed and dinner for two at the Penthouse restaurant. It is an unforgettable one-day rendezvous that includes a special late checkout time. No stones are left unturned in this gem of a luxe-latent deal.
The Huntley works equally well for romantic getaways, family vacations, and corporate or social events. With 5,000 square feet of flexible meetings and event space, intimate gatherings or large events are handled with the same savoir-faire.
