Pretty convenient location a block from the beach. Hotel was very nice, rooms were spacious (though some areas in the room were worn over time). Staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive. Pool area and bar looked interesting though we were out most of the time and didn't get a chance to take advantage of that. Happy to stay here again with their great level of service.

My husband and I stayed at the Viceroy in Santa Monica for one night as a stop on the drive up the Pacific Coast Highway. The hotel was amazing. Service was impeccable from the moment we stepped through the doors, front the front desk, to the bell stand.

We used the services on the concierge quite a bit - she made an excellent recommendation for brunch and scored us the best table in the restaurant. She also helped us use the bicycles that they have on property and mapped out the perfect course to easily sightsee.

The hotel is in a great location, right near the Santa Monica Pier, a quick bike ride to Venice Beach. The rooms were perfectly clean, everything was really wonderful! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Sarah910,
Thank you for choosing Viceroy as your pit-stop on your drive along the coast. We're glad to hear that our team were able to take such good care of you and your husband. We're especially pleased to learn what an impression Sherri at our concierge desk made on your stay. We hope we can welcome you both again soon and hopefully for a bit longer than one night next time.

Beautiful property if not a bit pretentious I found.

Valet and room service were excellent. So were most of the staff. Pool was small but nice.

Room was gorgeous with great luxury amenities included.

WiFi was terrible I found in the room. For the resort fee you pay it was a ripoff actually. Had to use hotel lobby to get a decent connection.

Went to the Saturday night party post 11pm and I swear 75% of the peope there weren't even staying there and by the looks of them couldn't afford to even if they wanted. Left after a few mins. Nicer time at other bars/restaurants in SM downtown.

You are at the end of the busy strip so expect to walk a bit. Awesome Breakfast at CORAs which is affront of the hotel. Don't miss that. Also awesome dive bar on same side of street as hotel-Chez Jay. Don't miss out!

morphius909,
Thank you for joining us. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and your time in Santa Monica. You were able to find two of our favorite places while out exploring. While we're happy to hear you enjoyed the room and our staff we're sorry to hear of your disappointment with the WiFi. We are currently upgrading our WiFi in stages to become the fastest in all of Santa Monica by the end of the year. We hope to have you back then to experience it. Thank you again.

Location is perfect: walking distance to the beach and to Santa Monica Pier - just across the road. Ocean views.
A few minutes away from Venice Beach - soooooo buzzy !

Nice and lively reception and lobby.

Service OUTSTANDING: ask reception for any information about Santa Monica / LA: they know it all !

Rooms: super clean and functional.

The hotel has been completely refurbished 10 years ago but it looks like having been redone yesterday ! Reason being: they refurbish constantly every year as things get worn.

Breakfast: A La Carte. Not very cheap but ... Hey guys: REALLY worth every penny !

Served inside or outside in the pool area: great food and super EXCELLENT service. Jenna (head service) has been there 10 years and she is simply fab.

We will definitely go back to Viceroy !

This hotel ticks many of the boxes. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The amenities live up to what you would expect from a hotel of this calibre. As others have commented though, it is the staff who really make this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble, they remembered and referred to me by name immediately. The pool area was inviting and pleasant and the lobby area feels sophisticated and modern.

I stayed for a week, in which time I witnessed two photo shoots taking place. As a designer, some of the choices of furniture are really well thought out, others reveal the cultural dilemma america has with design (as a European I feel well placed to comment!), but if you want somewhere that is a bit different and has a cool, mellow vibe, you'd be hard pressed to beat it.

Last time I stayed in santa Monica it was at the Shangri-La. If you are familiar with that, I'd say the Viceroy has the edge.

Room Tip: The higher up the better - ocean facing of course!
