Bah from Mrs Grumpy ... I travel to Santa Monica regularly from Europe and this is the first hotel I have stayed in without a coffee machine in my room. I can of course order it from room service for 8 usd, plus 20% service, plus 10 usd tray charge. Over twenty dollars for a coffee- what a rip off....

Stayed here for a team offsite meeting back in February and had an excellent time. Hotel is swanky with good food and a nice atmosphere. While we were visiting they were also filming an episode of Modern Family, so we got a bit of celebrity sighting in too. Ed O'Neill is a legend, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson is adorable. Oh,...

Stayed at the Viceroy, for the start of our Holiday. Perfect location for getting out and about in Santa Monica! We opted for a Seaview room which was a good size with great view. Room felt tired and no coffee making facilities. Hotel itself looked good, but to be honest was just ok! Service was tardy and disappointing for a...

We stayed in this hotel for about 4 days and we had a lovely time- the room was very cozy and spacious and the bar downstairs made awesome cocktails- breakfast was great experience. I do have two negative remarks which is the reason behind the 4 stars rating: 1) in room TV system is very archaic and you have to...

It's sort of 'smoke and mirrors' at the Viceroy Santa Monica. A slick and stylishly decored interior gives way to very little substance. Comfortable enough, but lacking in the graciousness normally associated with hotels at this price. Staff was professional yet perfunctory and not especially accommodating. A decent place to sleep, but again, at these prices you can find an...

I have really mixed feelings about Viceroy Santa Monica. The location is good, just minutes away from the sea promenade and restaurants/shops. On the other hand, the reception personnel aren't friendly at all, the worst attitude I have ever experienced during my two-week US journey and a few previous ones. The air conditioning in our room was not efficient at...

One block from the ocean with a lovely water view from our room. Warm welcome from the staff! Very trendy and lovely décor in the lobby, restaurant and bar. Pool with curtained cabanas and palm trees visible through the lobby. Complimentary bicycles for the bike path along the beach. Loved this hotel and would definitely go back!

The Viceroy is a beautiful hotel well situated in Santa Monica. The rooms and bathrooms have a stately glamorous feel to them - so much so that I want to redo a bathroom in my house to mirror their bathroom! Comfortable beds, great amenities, pools, outdoor fire pits and bar area. The reason I went 4 stars is that this...

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.
