I was in the Huntley for 5 days in February and on the whole enjoyed the experience.
The Hotel is quite beautiful. Even if you are not staying there you should pop in to check out the beautiful foyer and then go up to the restaurant to enjoy the view.
The staff are brilliant. Typical Californian hospitality - understated charm and genuine conversation. All the staff were helpful and friendly from check in to check out. 10/10!
However, the rooms are small and whilst they are tidy and reasonably well appointed the main disappointment was the bed that was soft and not supportive.
My poor back suffered a little after a few nights of the squidgy mattress. I really should have asked to be moved to another room. However, I stuck it out as it was only a few nights.
Had dinner in the restaurant one evening. The food was was 7/10 and rather expensive given what I ate elsewhere in Santa Monica.
So in summary a lovely hotel. Friendly and warm. Definitely try the breakfasts - wake up to sunshine and a panoramic view of the sea and the beach.
However, if you have back problems or don't function well on a soft mattress then this may not be the best place for you.
