For our second two nights in Cali we stayed in Santa Monica at the Huntley Hotel. Everyone, do yourselves a favor and go there! This place was amazing. It’s one block away from the beach and right by the pier. There is a rooftop restaurant that has 360 views of Santa Monica from above, including an insane view of the sunset. We spent our short time here drinking at the rooftop bar, going on rides at the pier and catching up with old west coast college friends.
