Stayed here on our Spring Break for one night. The service was superb from the moment we walked in the door. Jonathan at the front desk went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Was there with the whole family and the kids loved it. Great location. just across the street from the beach and within walking distance... More

Stayed here for 5 days with some friends. We were attending music venues in LA so it was convenient and far enough away from the hustle of the city. Close to the beach, good dining and the Pier. Room was on the 7th floor ocean front so the views were great. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful in what ever... More

We recently spent three weeks traveling down the west coast from San Francisco to San Diego staying in some fantastic hotels along the way. I can honestly say the Viceroy was the worst of all. The interiors are tired, there was hair in the bathroom, stains on the carpet, curtains and bathroom tiles, grime on the drawer insides. In fairness... More

We stayed 5 nights and the location was perfect. It is just across the road from the beach and an easy walk up to the third street promenade and lots of great restaurants. Service was excellent from James the concierge who went out of his way to get us great tickets for the Lakers. We ate in the restaurant and... More

My husband and I are moving to LA soon and recently spent three weeks there trying to get a feel for different neighborhoods. Our stay in the Santa Monica area included 8 nights at the Viceroy so we got to know it quite well. The Viceroy was wonderful, as expected, with lovely and friendly staff, big, hip/modern rooms, great amenities,... More

Stayed at the Viceroy with my family last summer, 2013. The first thing I noticed was how close it was to Santa Monica beach. It was fantastic. The decor is very modern and chic. We did not use the pools at all because we wanted to enjoy LA but the pools too looked lovely, despite being very small. This hotel... More

Great location. Quality food in their restaurant with beautiful outdoor seating near pool. They bring your water after you return form a workout or run! Rooms were clean and well-lit. Don't miss the weekly yoga class that usually takes place outside by the pool. Instructor is great!

My wife and I visited the Viceroy in February, 2014. It was our first stay there. We booked a suite with a view of the ocean and Santa Monica beach. We prepaid online for 3 nights and it was reasonably priced at about $650 a night. When we arrived we were dazzled by the suite. It was beautiful and quite... More

Admittedly very nice lipstick. The furnishings are nice, but you can tell its a very old hotel. Fixtures are very dated. Service is so so. Priced like a 5 star hotel, but really more of a 3-4 star. Location is quite aways from the Promenade. The vibe is nice and pleasant; food was quite good. But not enough to offset... More

This hotel is very modern and trendy. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated with lots of mirrors, behind, beside the bed etc. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable. On the downside, ceiling height is a bit low. Downstairs they have a lovely cocktail and dining area by two small pools. The hotel also offers free Wi-Fi which is... More
