The Huntley Hotel
Just a block from the beach or the bustle of Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, The Huntley’s location is beyond ideal for accommodation in LA. Awash with the scent of jasmine candles, the Huntley offers California-dreamy creamy-white scenes ranging from bucolic to boisterous. The lobby is all artsy-cool urban oasis, with oversized leather armchairs, eclectic furnishings, exotic artwork, refined woods, and an abundance of orchids – and yes, those are white lacquered piranhas on the wall. The rooms, a showcase of contemporary decor, come equipped with caramel suede headboards and diverse furnishings, making the Huntley hotel one of the most sought-after boutique hotels in Los Angeles. The Huntley’s crowning achievement is the always-hip-deep-in-hipsters Penthouse lounge, where you must decide which is more gorgeous: the panoramic Pacific views or the ethereal design scheme.
