“Perfect..”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I stayed at the Viceroy a while ago but I am compelled to rave about the fond memories there and in Santa Monica.
The rooms were great, clean and Airy.
The white drapes blowing slightly with the breeze the color scheme was a cool blue and white, and even though the rooms my room wasn't large, it still felt spacious and bright.

The outdoor lounge area was nice, with little places you can tuck away in, or not.
I absolutely loved the food! I enjoyed two dinners, had breakfast three days and lunch once, in one weekend escape from Las Vegas.

The Viceroy is splendid, and I do recommend it if you're in Santa Monica area.

Having traveled to Anguilla, I have yet to stay at a hotel, but if I do it will certainly be at the Viceroy there.

It's always a pleasure to stay at a hip hotel with friendly, efficient service.

From the friend who recommended it ("Lots of fun and well-located") to the LAX cabdriver who dropped me off ("You'll love it there"), the comments were all positive. I arrived on an early am flight, and was able to check in right away. Spacious room, comfortable bed, great amenities. (Though I missed the champagne at check in. Next time!) Great location by the beach.

The pool is quiet, with nice decor and quietly attentive (if a bit pricy) food & drink service I was welcome to linger after checkout for an afternoon poolside. Small but very pleasant gym. VIsiting friends had a great experience with the valet service. Genuinely nice staff, who almost always greeted me by name.

I"m looking forward to staying here again soon.

frommarin,
The pleasure was truly ours to have you stay with us. We're glad to know that we lived up to your recommendations and that you had a fun weekend. I guess you know you're doing something right when cabdrivers are giving endorsements. It is great that our staff made such an impression on you and your friends. Your glass of welcome champagne is waiting so please do come back and see us soon. Thanks again.

I stayed here mid-May and headed straight to the pool. My room was comfortable and clean with great products, bed comfortable. It was a good value and I would still choose it over some of its more expensive competitors down the street- with a great lobby and ambiance that was a fun getaway during business. I appreciated the champagne at check in.

badgerlizzy,
Thank you for joining us last month. We are glad to you were able to have a bit of fun and hang out poolside even when traveling on business. You are correct that we are now a decade old so we appreciate that you still find us hip. However because of this fact we are giving our property a little nip and tuck in the form of refreshing our dining room and later this year our guestrooms. We know you'll love it when done so hope we can have you back to see it. Thanks again.

Stayed at the Viceroy for 2 days and did not want to go back home! What a lovely experience. Everyone was so kind, so helpful, so friendly. Rooms were the cleanest of any hotel I have ever been to, smartly decorated, elegant bathrooms, super comfy beds. Breakfast and lunch were outstanding...best omelette and salad ever. Wish they had in indoor dining room for the "June Gloom" evenings (of which i was completely unaware and under-dressed for). Next time I will pack accordingly and bring a shawl! But truly, a completely outstanding business trip experience.
We will be back, and often.

Green Features: Love any business that is respectful of Mother Earth. I try to incorporate mindful practices like this into my own life, so when I can extend that practice into other areas of my existence, I am grateful. That's how goodness spreads and consciousness is raised.

Joanne A,
The answer to that question is yes, yes you can. Who hasn't wanted to live in a hotel? Thank you for allowing us the chance to make you feel so at home. One of the wonderful things about Santa Monica is that it cools off in the evenings but if not expected that could be quite a surprise. The good thing is that the refresh of the interior of our restaurant is nearing completion so we'll have a nice warm seat for you inside on your next visit. Thank you for joining us.

My husband and I had a fantastic 3 night stay, could not fault the Viceroy. Worth finding the extra budget to stay there. 2 minute walk to the beach, staff were amazing, and the complementary coffee in the morning was even more welcoming!!!!!! Perfect, hope to go back!!!!

This hotel is absolutely great. Fantastic decor, service and location. I was worried it might be a little pretentious, but it manages to be stylish and yet relaxed and welcoming all at once. The staff did a great job looking after our friends who we'd shouted a night there following some medical treatment in LA. We will be returning ourselves next time we are in Santa Monica and would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a stylish haven.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room.

The Viceroy at Santa Monica is an absolute gem. From the friendly staff greeting you at the door, through the check in process ( complimentary glass of bubbly) and to the bell staff was a wonderful experience. They really could not do more to make you more comfortable.
Moving into summer the pool area was just what we needed and the food in the restaurant and room service was fantastic.
Great modern decor that doesn't scream "i'm too cool" but welcome to our place.
One street back from the beach and walking distance to the Pier and 3rd street promenade.
the rooms are spacious and beds are like sleeping on clouds.
On all levels i can't recommend this property highly enough, i'll be back there first chance i get.
Loved it!

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side have beach views and rooms facing away from the street have pool and garden...
