Having just finished 2 nights at The JW Marriott across the street my husband was reluctant to leave and try the Viceroy for our 3rd night. I had a special rate via email and insisted.
From the moment we arrived we were both blown away! Decor was superb & energizing. Staff was personal and welcoming - made us feel like we just arrived home. Complimentary glass of champagne awaited us.
Viceroy has an upscale boutique feeling. Entire hotel was spotless.
Stayed on the top floor overlooking pool. Room made good use of space, quiet, luxurious and what a comfortable bed!
Enjoyed cocktails/ appetizers in the bar, ate breakfast in Whist. Fantastic menu, well prepared food. Fairly priced for Santa Monica - pricey town overall.
Guests during our stay were mostly mid 30's to 60's (probably due to no DJ that night?).
Hard to find the hotel because there is no large sign posted, just small parking entrance signs. Not next to the promenade but a short 3 minute cab ride.
When visiting family in town this will become our new "home-away-from-home"
