My wife and I stayed here as the last leg of our honeymoon and by no means were we disappointed. The reviews are pretty much spot on with what previous travellers have said. It is perfectly situated to be a stones throw from the beach, local transport links and the pretty awesome area of 3rd street promenade. The service is what you would expect from a 5 star boutique hotel in the area and the interior is luscious (was being updated again when we were there, in a very non-intrusive way and can't wait to seen how they could possibly make the place even cooler than what it is :-))
Our room was of a good size and furnished with quality decor, we also had a gorgeous view of the beach. The bed was verrrrrrry comfy!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the viceroy and rounded off an absolute dream of a honeymoon. We loved the viceroy and Santa Monica in general and cannot wait to visit again.
