The Huntley Hotel
We had our wedding in the beautiful beach city of Santa Monica, California and my groom and I along with our entire bridal party and a couple of our guests stayed here for my September 2012 wedding... We all stayed here for the night before my wedding & night of & day after for some guests. Diane from the sales department delivered such a top notch service in terms of communication, providing decent group rate and answering all our questions in timely manner and more. Our stay here was definitely a memorable one. We had a premier ocean view room and the view was fantastic and the rooms were clean and very accommodating and up to date. We also took our engagement photos and wedding day photos here and they came out so lovely and elegant. I love the Huntley and looking forward to staying here in the future too. We also had a great time at the Penthouse for some drinks and after party. We were sad to leave but will be coming back! :)
All of our guests stayed here for our Malibu wedding and Crystal got us great rates and managed the whole process. She helped us secure some tables for post wedding party at The Penthouse. Very professional, kept me updated with spreadsheets of all my guests hotel bookings and worked with us to have the many guest gift bags handed out at check-in. Great experience, highly recommended.
Overall, they were great to work with and the staff were wonderful. I was a little sad because the suite I wanted was booked when I tried to get it, but they did give us an upgrade to a gorgeous ocean view when we then booked a standard room. They negotiated a good price for our guests, and made sure all guests received their OOT buckets. Some rooms (ours) were noticeably smaller than others, so some of the guests were taking notice of other guests' rooms and wondering about the discrepancy, but the hotel overall is very nice and well decorated and clean. By far the best value in Santa Monica in my opinion. Location was great, as lots of people explored 3rd Street and some went on a morning beach walk together.
