3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed several days as part of a family vacation. The service, room quality and food were terrific in every respect. The one drawback to our stay was that, although we had a suite, the room was near the service elevator, which was noticeably loud precisely in the evenings when we were trying to go to sleep. The hotel was... More

The hotel is a nice place. Was here on business, saw families, groups, young and not-so-young, and thought all fit in well. Service was courteous, timely and efficient and not-over-the-top, way I prefer it. Rooms furnishing, layout, view was very good, the pillows, comforters, beds and mattresses, I really need to figure where they get those from and get some... More

I was appalled by the lack of service when I stayed at the Viceroy Santa Monica over MLK weekend this year. My daughter and I walked across the street to the Loew's where we were pleasantly surprised but the quality and service vs. the Viceroy! I LOVED the decor of the Viceroy but our view was of the back side... More

What a delight this hotel was. The decor was very impressive and made the most of the small area, although it didn't feel small. The service was very good and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The pool was good and the rooms were very nice and very well appointed. It was a treat to stay here.

I was a little hesitant to book this hotel as read through the reviews and found lots of negative posts ranging from 'lack of sun by the pool' and 'rooms not as advertised'. After much deliberation I went ahead and booked it and am so glad I did. what a stunning hotel! The lobby is beautiful, very well maintained and... More

On the upside this place had great service, a comfy bed, a short one block jaunt to the beach and bikes to ride along the boardwalk. I was on a higher floor with a pool view and was not bothered by the cheesy music or ridiculous nightlife. My room did seem kind of rundown, though, even compared to other rooms... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for four nights and we had such a lovely time. Check in was very easy and enjoyable, we had champagne on arrival. Our room was quite small but we had lovely views of the ocean. We had champagne and strawberries compliments of the hotel to celebrate our honeymoon and we though this was... More

I have wanted to stay here since I first saw the stunning Kelly Wearstler-designed space years ago. The lobby is beautiful, and still very well maintained. The style is classic, modern, and crisp. We arrived on a Monday evening at sunset and were warmly welcomed by Andrew at the front desk. We were shown to our room on the eighth... More

We stayed at Viceroy for 4 nights on a holiday to Los Angeles. Location is great, short walk to the beach/pier and to center of Santa Monica. Hotel has very nice bicycles you can take out which we did almost every day. The pool area is nice as well. One thing to note, if your window faces the pool it... More

…great location, hotel has an "air" of a french hotel, but needs some improvement. TVs are the "old" flat screen (and in my case) did not work properly. I asked for repair, but it didn't help. The staff was nice, swimming pool area was very nice. All in all, a "very good" suits the evaluation.
