We ended our California trip at the Viceroy. It was such a lovely way to end the holiday. The service was excellent from being welcomed on arrival with Champagne to the help provided by the concierge. The rooms we had was a ocean room view on the 7th floor. You have great views of the Santa Monica sunset from there.... More

Have stayed at the Viceroy 5-6 times over the last 5 years - and once again it delivers on quality - from upbeat decor, free bikes to fantastic service (Casey - concierge - is such a delight). Glad they have restricted large parties/events from the hotel (unless you are staying) - keeps it more boutique and intimate (and not as... More

The Viceroy is situated in a great location close to the beach and the shops. It has two small pools although they lose the sun in the afternoon. The service is rather lacklustre for the quality of the hotel. It is probably relying on its name and could work a little harder to justify the price.

The Viceroy is a cool boutique hotel full of cool Californians and a broad smattering of Europeans. The small but private pool area has that really chilled California vibe. The bar is super cool and the staff cannot do enough for you. I would definitely recommend it and my 16 and 17 year old daughters loved it.

this is a really nice smaller scale hotel at the southern end of the beach/pier. Greeted upon arrival with a champagne was very nice and set the tone for an enjoyable stay. The rooms are very nice and we were upgraded to full sea view which had an amazing view of the beach and ocean. Unfortunately the balconies are non... More

The front view of the hotel does not do it justice. We were very happy with our stay at the Viceroy. The people were nice, especially the doormen. Our room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom door was a little difficult to shut, but it was beautiful. The pool area is small, but wasn't crowded while we were there (due... More

We just absolutely loved this hotel! Boutique, stylish hotel perfectly positioned close to the beach, Santa Monica Pier, short walk from the 3rd street Pronenade and downtown Santa Monica and Main Street where you can find some delish restaurants! The hotel has cool, vintage looking bikes that are free to hire to cycle down to Venice beach and the Marina!... More

Spoiler alert. I really loved this hotel for our last-minute get-away. Viceroy has created a cool, laid back beach vibe. The rooms are well appointed - comfy bed, high quality linens, nice furnishings, good lighting and ample storage. The staff are attentive and extremely gracious. The concierges' restaurant recommendations were spot on. The pool area is lovely, but can be... More

Amazing location close to the Santa Monica beach- across a main road and then down a street. Rooms comfortable, clean but on the small side if you are staying for a while and there are more than 1- 2 of you. We were there for 5 nights and could not unpack our suitcases as there were only 3 small drawers... 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.
