I came in today to finalize some things with our stay and cabana rentals for later in the month at the Viceroy Santa Monica. Laura G and Maribel handled everything so effortlessly and kind! They walked me through all of the steps for the cabana rentals, wine lists, bottle list and food menu. They were patient and kind, as we kept having issues with the internet to log on. I had already came two days before and worked with Laura G and she was simply amazing! While I was there, there happened to be a disgruntled guest who was clearly drunk and was very hostile towards Laura G. She did everything in her power to remain calm and professional through out the entire communication with this woman. The woman antagonized Laura and Laura continued to represent the Viceroy with her professionalism over and over again. I felt awful as a patron watching this and at the same time proud of Laura G for not losing her composure. I am a huge fan of the Viceroy based on their location, the quality of their rooms and most importantly their staff. I look forward to our stay at the end of June and to celebrate life around the pool! Maribel and Laura G are two complete examples of what the core values of the Viceroy and any hotel should be.

We took a family vacation so my dad could celebrate his 91st birthday on the beach. We had a lot of special needs and the Viceroy provided everything we could have asked for. The people in our group who needed it had a beautiful accessible room with a gorgeous beach view. The suite we reserved had enough space for all of us to hang out in, and they accommodated our request for rooms to be close together and adjoining where possible, even upgrading one of the rooms so that would be possible. Every single person we encountered, from the front desk, to the servers at the pool, to the guys working the front door were friendly and exceedingly helpful. When our ride to the airport didn't show up early on a Sunday morning, the people at the front desk arranged last-minute transportation for us, even though we had lots of people, luggage, a wheelchair, and a walker. The rooms were impeccably clean and the beach views were fabulous. I am so happy we chose this hotel for our family vacation!

John at the front desk gave outstanding service. Prior to our arrival from Florida, he made dinner reservations as we were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We were also greeeted with a bottle of wine in our room overlooking the ocean. The staff members were all pleasant and courteous. We look forward to returning here in the near future.

The staff at the property was super nice and helpful however the hotel was not as pictured online. Lobby was nice and clean. Hotel room could have been cleaner. There was dust in the corners. They reuse giant bottles for shampoo/conditioner/soap and our soap bottle was dirty.
