I'm very surprised that this isn't Number 1 in Santa Monica. This is the fourth hotel we've stayed in on our family California Road Trip and it is without doubt the best. The adjoining rooms worked great with the kids, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I'd gladly recommend it to other families.

To quote one of my family members, "this is what a vacation feels like." The Viceroy is a lovely, larger hotel in Santa Monica - it's fun, it's hip, but most of all it's comfortable. I loved the decor! We were three adults in one room and the room was spacious, even with the Viceroy's roll away. Don't let the... More

We arrived at this hotel as our second honeymoon destination. From the outside the hotel doesn't look the best but on arrival and going inside it a lovely hotel with a warm cool feel about it. The check in staff where brilliant and concierge very helpful. The rooms where slightly tired but we seem this as character. Would recommend location... More

The hotel is probably upto it's Four Star rating. However, there are some issues. I have always been careful to be fair with my reviews, but as you can see from the photo describing our outlook from the fifth floor as a "Seaview" is very misleading. The hotel is in fact two blocks back from the "Shoreline" behind other hotels.... More

The Viceroy is a block off the beach so less expensive than Shutters, the Lowes, Casa del Mar. But the high floors (7&8) still have great views of the Pacific. And the walk to the beach takes two mins. The staff is friendly and efficient and the rooms are terrific. Fantastic bed, excellent shower/bath. The halls are dark, which I... More

This hotel is beautiful! Everything in this hotel is stylishly decorated, from the lobby, to the bar area, to the pool/ patio area, and of course the rooms themselves. I stayed here with two others (queen bed and pull out), and all was perfect. The room was spotless and had every amenity that you would ever need. The bathroom was... More

When we initially saw the Viceroy from the outside - it was not what we expected - however as soon as we entered the hotel - we stepped into a haven from the hustle and bustle that Santa Monica can be. The area by the pool was absolutely stunning and the perfect place to relax. With a glass of bubbles... More

We weren't impressed with the exterior of this hotel as it looked like a dated motel. It could easily pass for a Holiday Inn. However, once we stepped inside we were impressed with the contemporary and chic furniture. Check in was a breeze and we were greeted with champagne which was nice. The room was a good size and bed... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
