The Viceroy is a very nice, high end boutique hotel well positioned in Santa Monica. The rooms were modern and comfortable but a touch smallish. The bar was busy but we found it a bit overpriced and probably a bit too cool for us :-) Breakfast was included and was of a high quality. Our only quibble was that as... More

Wow! What a nice surprise for a quick last minute trip! I have heard great things about the Viceroy Santa Monica so when we were invited to a last minute get together with our friends, it was an easy choice. The only problem with our stay is that it was too short! We arrived Friday night and were checked in... More

This was my first time at the Viceroy. It was suggested, so I decided to give it a shot for a 1 night business trip. As we checked in, Hector welcomed us with a glass of champagne. We talked about the area and different restaurants and he made a restaurant reservation for us and also suggested a lounge in the... More

First time staying here, and was immediately impressed upon check-in, with the glass of prosecco and some unique smell in the air in the lobby which I couldn't wait to smell every time I returned to the hotel during my stay. Staff was over the top nice, everyone had smiles on their faces, everyone knew your name, even the cleaning... More

As always, the viceroy chain of hotels are top notch, modern,clean and great location - right across the beach and an easy walk to santa monica pier... what more could you ask for. The rooms have been upgraded with wi-fi, they offer a great restaurant and all kinds of amenities... I loved being here.

I loved staying at the Viceroy – from the art deco decor, to the impeccable service, to the excellent food/drinks. I travel a lot and the service was one of the best I have ever experienced. From the doorman, to the front desk employees to the room service servers, to the restaurant staff – it was incredible. The location is... More

We were welcomed with a glass of champagne & a bottle of bubbly in our room after the front desk staff found out we had recently become engaged. What a nice gesture. The staff was beyond helpful in anything we needed, we mentioned we wanted to watch some football games, they happily called around local bars to see which ones... More

If you want to stay in Santa Monica then this place totally does it. Excellent service from the staff, nice modern deco and nice rooms with a descent sea-view, very nice pool area as well. Only minor complaints were the lack of a kettle/coffee maker in the room and cheap old shower-head delivering a rather hard water pressure. Friends had... More

We were delighted with our experience at the Viceroy. In particular, all of the members of the staff seemed genuinely invested in our happiness and made us feel like honored guests. Even during the New Year's Eve party - when the hotel was very busy - we still felt like we were receiving special treatment. The rooms and the hotel... More

We like the Viceroy as soon as we checked in; we were impressed that guests are allowed to sit down to check in, which was much appreciated after a long trip. Front desk clerk Tim took the time to offer several restaurant recommendations within walking distance. Our room was nicely decorated and featured an extremely comfortable bed and surprisingly good... 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.
