My first impression of the Viceroy was a little bit of disappointment. The exterior seemed a little dated. Entering the lobby, that all change. The luxury on arrival extended through to the pool area with cabanas and up into the rooms which were decorated to a very high standard. A balcony and better ocean view is the only thing that...

A very hip and great place to stay. Good location and amenities. Rooms are good size and the coffee in the lobby is actually tasty. Workout room is nothing special but the pool and chairs are good. Employees at check-in are professional and friendly. Will stay again.

The hotel is very comfortable and nice. Staff very kind and helpful and the food service is also excellent. Rooms are very well designed and comfortable too. I have a view to the pool and the parking but I think that the rooms on the front must have a very beautiful landscape to see. I hope I'l be back soon

The hotel is located in a good location if you want to explore Santa Monica i.e the beach, the pier, the farmers market near the promenade, etc.. The pool area is nice although it was very loud during my stay due to abundance of unruly foreign children staying at the property. Given the type of hotel and the price for...

This hotel is very upscale and it's exactly what we were looking for. (A bit of business and vacation blended for 5 days) Outside pool (2) stylish cabanas, trendy bar and scene. Staff is excellent, quality service for sure. Champagne upon arrival, free bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries on our last day, wonderful. After spending a good amount...

A stylish hotel situated in beachside Santa Monica. Rich fabrics, quality wall paper, comfortable cushions and occasional chairs are a few of the details that make staying at this Viceroy special. The fire pit by the pool is also a comforting touch, especially when the temperature drops in the early evening. Friendly, professional service compliments a wonderful stay.

I dropped by here for a b'ness event. The Viceroy is on Ocean near Pico in SM, in from the water from nearby Shutters. Before the event started, my friend and I watched March Madness in the bar that offered special pricing during "Rush Hour". She had a cosmo, while I had a sangria ($7/each), and we shared deviled eggs...

I was staying with some friends for a weekend in Santa Monica and chose the Viceroy for its location and trendy high end style. On checking in I was told that the room I had booked was not ready (2:15pm) but they did have rooms available for an upgrade fee. I was not wanting to hang around so paid the...

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
