This is by far the best hotel in Santa Monica! From the moment I checked in the gentleman working at the front desk greeted us with Champagne & love. He remembered me and my sister calling a couple weeks prior & speaking to him. From the great atmosphere to the amazing restaurant & views it was all a VIBE! The manager William asked if we were celebrating something & we told them my 40th birthday & he sent two bottles of champagne up to our room with a happy birthday card. If you are wondering where to stay in southern Calif for your next fun getaway, then think no more! You will love every bit of this experience. You literally do not need to leave the hotel. 💕

Hotel's Favorite
Fantastic hotel, great location. From the minute we checked in the service and experience were exceptional. The gentlemen at the door, the individuals helping with our luggage, and front desk staff were excellent. They made sure the entire stay was perfect. The rooms are well appointed, in excellent condition. The bathrooms are spacious and have ample space for storage. Anything we needed was a phone call away. Extremely attentive staff made this stay perfect.

Dear tal211, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this fantastic 5 star review. We are so fortunate to be in a prime location of the beach, for our guest to take advantage of the amazing views and a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Our newly renovated lobby and backyard are great areas for meetings or to just enjoy the space. We truly appreciate the acknowledgement regarding the great service our team provided. Thank you once again for choosing the Viceroy Santa Monica. We look forward to being your host in the future to create an even more memorable experience. Warmest, Deepak Mehra, General Manager

From the moment we arrived with glasses of prosecco offered to all of us until the farewells days later we had an incredible experience at the Viceroy. In particular the staff members Bj and Alejandro were so helpful and fun. The rooms were beautiful, spotless, and incredibly comfortable beds for a sublime night's sleep. Every day we used the beach bikes to go exploring. The location is unbelievable, across the street from the beach and so close to all the great restaurants and night life. I will definitely come back and recommend this destination to many friends.

An all time classic hotel just got even better with stunning remodel. The refresh on the lobby and patio area are beautiful and spacious. Big thanks to Edith & Lanet at the front desk for the great hospitality & support. Great vibes and warm staff make this the best hotel in Santa Monica if not all of LA / SoCal. Can’t wait to come back and try Sugar Palm restaurant.

The blankets were a little too warm, so we had some difficulty sleeping. We didn't want to turn up the A/C and waste energy, but if we opened the patio door, the ambient noise was too loud. Also, we could have used another storage area for luggage and another set of drawers for clothes. Otherwise, the room was wonderful, with a great view and appointments.

A small and very cool hotel. Nice big room well appointed. Close to the pier, Venice and of course the beach. It sits just behind the Shutters hotel so is prime Santa Monica. A short walk gets you everywhere. Staff were all great, restaurant was very good as well. Starbucks round the corner for a morning coffee. A great place to stay during a trip to LA

I was unfortunately really surprised at the cost of this hotel versus the property. First, the staff were all amazing so that was a huge plus. But the property itself is dated, not at all a 4 star experience. There was a dirty bandaid on the floor of our room. We stayed on the top floor in a Grande King Suite, and the table was dirty, the chair had so much wear it literally had a hole in the arm. Basic cable only, nothing special at all about this property. There was no sheets for the pullout, which I'd assume they'd have ready. All the photos of this purport

Ambience of the amenity spaces are very thought out. Excellent drinks and food. Stuff is very helpful and attentive. Would recommend and visit again. The location is also great, only a block away from the beach and Santa Monica pier.
