The interiors of The Huntley Hotel’s spacious rooms nod to Santa Monica’s laid-back beach culture. Light woods, pristine white sheets, colored glass table lamps and a natural paint palette call to mind surfboards, driftwood, sea glass and the elements outside. Plush, custom pillow-top Simmons Beautyrest mattresses are outfitted in cool and comfortable linens by Matteo Los Angeles, a local purveyor of luxury handcrafted home wares. Even if you’re not tucked between these sheets, you will feel pampered wearing the Frette bathrobes and slippers, available in each room.
One third of The Huntley’s 204 contemporary guest rooms have ocean views, with the best vistas available in the Premier Rooms on floors nine to 17. The rooms on the third to eighth floors boast vistas of either Los Angeles or Santa Monica.
Aside from the views, there are other amenities. For those who like to stay connected, there’s a 42-inch plasma television, wireless high-speed Internet access and a generous executive workspace. Room service menus are carefully crafted upstairs at The Penthouse by executive chef Seth Greenberg to ensure you can savor the same farm-to-table cuisine available in the main dining room.
At the end of the day, clever design and good flow emerge as the best features of the guest rooms at the Santa Monica hotel. Sleek reading nooks and window seats are covered in bright, modern upholstery, adding more lounging options in the often-open floor plan.
