I was a bit unsure prior to my arrival and jet lagged. I am fussy especially when tired and having to rush off. But was met by the most wonderful staff with understanding and welcoming smile. Service is excellent. The decor!Oh THE decor is so easy on the eye and beautiful. Rooms are very functional and well appointed. Despite the... More

We stayed here wih our friends in a double. The rooms are clean and modern, the beds are small - they're the standard European size, so a bit smaller than what we are used to in Australia. The gym was right next door and we were very impressed with it. The hotel is stylish with lovely chaises at the entrance... More

I visited the Viceroy last week after attending the Coachella music festival. From the second we walked into the hotel we received the best treatment, we had a complementary ocean view room upgrade, we were greeted with glasses of prosecco and Matt the door man was so nice.The staff are all warm, friendly and always there to answer any questions...

I always enjoy visiting or staying at the Viceroy while in Santa Monica. The rooms are clean and modern and the grounds are gorgeous in the back! I wish the rooms had a coffee machine, but there is coffee available in the main lobby. Highly recommend!

This place is great! The website didn't do it justice. The staff are great, the location is perfect and the decor is fun and stylish! Spent a week here on business so I couldn't enjoy the fun stuff but I will certainly return to the Viceroy one day.

This is the third time I have stayed. Expect attentive but respectful service. The rooms are nicely appointed and the hotel well positioned for everything that Santa Monica has to offer. Pool area is very pleasant and a good place to while away the jet-lag. Concierge always helpful and valet parking was well organised. Thanks to everyone who made the... More

The Viceroy was as described- beautiful, the staff was extremely helpful, restaurants within walking distance and near the ocean. Very cool hotel, great bar! I had called ahead to describe room types we needed (two rooms) and they were right on target.prior to arrival they were also helpful in paying our stay (sightseeing) and were extremely informative during our stay....

I am currently staying at the Viceroy and writing this at midnight. Read further and you will understand......... As you know from the other reviews, this is a fine property, indeed! Nice facility and superb location. I would ordinarily award 5 stars for this level of excellence. However, due to some very thin walls (and some very oblivious and loud... More

Just stayed at the Viceroy Santa Monica and had an absolutely great stay. The staff was very courteous and accommodating to our needs, we just had a great time. We stayed in a nice suite with stunning views of Santa Monica Beach and Pier. The hotel offered complimentary bikes that the three of us used to ride down past Venice... 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.
