Boutique and very (very) fashionably decorated, attentive and kind service, very close location to the beach, beautiful amenities in the bathroom, nice views towards the ocean, and a honeymoon gift package in the room... This is definitely the best hotel in Santa Monica and deserves the not-that-expensive price easily... Will not stay anywhere else in Santa Monica again..

Viceroy is a solid base of operations on the westside. SM Beach access. Across the street from my favorite restaurant in LA -- Capo. Very convenient to both BIZ and night spots. Food is surprisingly good and the pool/lobby scene at night is vibrant but overdone. The front rooms have great views. Lower floors are loud with street noise. Room... More

2nd visit to LA & this time we wanted to be based by the ocean (we don't really rate downtown LA beaches, but it's nice to get some breeze). Mixed reviews of ALL the hotels in the area and looking at the price differentials, we decided to break away from the usual Shutters/ Shore/ Loews brigade and go one block... More

Firstly, the location is excellent being walking distance from the beach, copious restaurants and a myriad of designer shops. This hotel is as cool as it gets. Understated, but charming and super-efficient. The decor is bang up to date, whilst the bar is just you would want in a boutique hotel. Rooms are of a sensible size, whilst the bathrooms... More

The Viceroy is a lovely boutique hotel. Check in was excellent and made to feel welcome with a glass of champagne. The rooms are very well fitted, really comfortable beds and amenities. A little on the small side though. The pool area is quite small but it was very cool, dee jay playing most days, good sounds. Food was disappointing.... More

what i would say is it is better than other hotels in the area. however it is vastly overpriced. some decent interior design work means what is a pretty functional building is made to look better than it is. rooms are fine, but not overly large. what is grating is that given the high price there is a constant search...

Make sure to ask for an ocean view room! The rooms are up to date and clean, the view is wonderful and the bathrooms are amazing. The location is fine for what we wanted, within walking distance of the beach and the pier. The pool is very nice as well. Overall, a very lovely hotel with wonderful staff.

We just spent 4 nights at Viceroy SM, all in all a great experience, it is centrally located, when going anywhere in downtown SM we just walked and left our hired car in hotel valet, close to many fine restaurants within walking distance, we had an ocean view Junior Suite on the highest floor (8th), with a king size bed...

We arrived for 3 nights after Las Vegas and what an oasis. Despite the four of us sharing a room we found it stylish and very comfortable. The location is superb for the beach, shops and restaurants. We used the hotel bikes to get to Venice beach and Malibu and that is a must. We got incredibly burnt as breeze... More

My partner and I just spent a weekend at the Viceroy Santa Monica. We chose this hotel because it was close to the ocean and because Viceroy had recently joined the GHA Discovery loyalty program of which I am a 'Black' level member. We booked an ocean view room but at check in were given a double upgrade to a... 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.
