I had high expectations based on other reviews and I thought it was just ok for the price. They are ocean view rooms, but a bit further off the ocean than I thought. The pool in early November only gets an hour or two of sun, and not many open seats (although were there during a film festival). The lobby...

Hard to tell which is better - the hotel's appearance and warm ambiance, or the hotel's staff. Both were impeccable. Every staff person I interacted with was supremely helpful and interested in my comfort. At the front desk, Andreas and Eddie were particularly helpful, especially when I appeared at the front desk in the morning 15 minutes before an important...

We had the best stay at the Viceroy. Everything from the first welcome at check in to the last day checking out. The location is great, close to the beach. We enjoyed borrowing the hotel's cruiser bikes and rode along the bike trail and had the best breakfast along the beach. At check in, we were greeted with two great...

This hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and very nice. However it is NOT on the ocean and when you book, it seems as if it were. In spite of this we loved the hotel, the service was fabulous, the food is very good and it is located at a great point in Santa Monica.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Viceroy in Santa Monica several years back. It was so wonderful. A great location-close to the beach and close to 3rd Street Promonade and lovely restaurants. We enjoyed the Pier and eating at Bubba Gumps as well as a great mexican food place. We rented bicycles and rode along the beach on the...

For our last night of a California road trip we returned to our favourite place Santa Monica. We decided to splash out and treat ourselves to a nights stay at the Viceroy.

It's nice to be able to sit back and relax when traveling for work. The rooms are spacious and I had a wonderful view out the floor to ceiling windows from the fourth floor. The lobby is very stylish, I just wish I had a little extra time to spend at the fire next to the pool.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
