Booked in with my daughter tonight. ~$650/night "ocean view". Paper thin pillows. No phone in room to call front desk. Called from me cell standing right next to the window since cell service doesn't work in the room. Called down to get more pillows and they didn't have any. Said they were fully booked and couldn't take any from other... More

This hotel is lovely. My room was ocean view and the hotel is about 1 block from the ocean front. The room was well presented and comfortable. The bathroom was lovely. The one thing that annoyed me was that the hotel is well over priced, like everything in the Santa Monica area, so be prepared for this. The hotel offers... More

I was a little overwhelmed by the "hipness" of this place when I walked in, but I have to say, I had a very nice stay. The service here was excellent and friendly. The hotel is surrounded by large green hedges which give it the feel of a nice sanctuary from the chaos of Santa Monica. The pool area is... More

The hotel was well decorated and felt fun and on trend. I've stayed before and had a great experience that time as well. The service was great in all areas of the hotel. I didn't visit the spa on this trip. The front door attendants were very attentive as well as the staff at check in. Complimentary beach cruisers were... More

We just completed a 3 night stay at the Viceroy in Santa Monica and to be honest, I wasn't too impressed (especially considering the price tag). My biggest criticism is that I don't think the hotel's website does an accurate or honest job describing the property or the services provided and when held accountable for this, the management was defensive...

We stayed at the viceroy as part of our honeymoon road trip through California. Location was absolutely perfect, just a short walk to the beach, and the famous Santa Monica pier. Also lots of restaurants within the vicinity and 20 minute walk from Venice beach (although you can use the complimentary bikes if you like). Customer service was outstanding. We... More

Undoubtedly it isn't the cheapest option in the Santa Monica area, but after a lot of research we're thrilled we opted for the Viceroy. The location is great - close to the beach, Main Street, and Santa Monica shopping/ restaurants. The staff are charming and helpful - the concierges are super friendly and switched on. The room was perfect for... More

We like the Viceroy group and have stayed In other hotels in the small chain. There is lots to recommend the hotel, great staff, great location, well appointed rooms, close to beach and the centre of Santa Monica. The only downside was the continual takeover of the pool area for external events such as yoga classes, aerobics, cabana parties etc... More

If you want a relaxing vacation this is NOT for you. We came for a relaxing five days with our family for our anniversary. They didn't even congratulate us or do anything special for the room. Staff is rude and unprofessional and this place lacks big time on service. The pool is pretty but packed with drunk people and different... 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.
