TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We stayed at the Viceroy for 4 nights on the way home from our honeymoon in Bora Bora. Having never spent any time in LA before (expect 1 night in Beverly Hills on the way out), I wasn't sure which... Read more area to base ourselves. A friend who once lived in Santa Monica claimed we should be near the beach and that the Viceroy was THE place to stay .... and boy, he wasn't wrong. I loved this hotel. It's cool, fun, trendy but still classic and warm at the same time. As soon as you enter the hotel, you get a feel of what it's about ... and that's amazing decor, peaceful, and luxury. While we were checking in, we where presented with complementary champagne which was a nice touch. The receptionist was lovely and very polite. One thing do you notice is that all the staff are very good looking .... which fits well with the hotel. It absolutely looks like the kind of place what would be shot for an upscale magazine. We had an ocean view room on the 5th floor and the room was EXACTLY how it looks on the website. Modern but classic at the same time. We had more than enough room for 2 adults with 2 large suitcases. The beds where SO comfy, especially the pillows. The only negative I have about the room, in fact the whole hotel, was that the shower pressure wasn't strong enough. Whilst we explored Santa Monica and the rest of LA, we did spend some time at the hotel pool. It's quite small but designed in such a way that they have made the most of the space. There are lots of trees to make it look pretty but this did cause quite a bit of shade on the sun loungers, luckily each time we went to the pool, we where able to pick loungers which where in the sun .... so not a big deal for us. The complementary water at the pool was lovely with chunks of fresh fruit to liven it up. I found the waiter service at the pool to be excellent too. There was also someone on hand to take your food or drink order. The hotel bar was always pretty buzzing in the evenings, especially during happy hour and later on at night. The cocktails where delicious as was everything we ate during our stay, especially the tacos on the pool menu. Yum. I would definitely stay at the Viceroy again if I was every back in LA/Santa Monica. Read less
We stayed at the Viceroy Santa Monica for several nights July, 2014. The hotel is like a peaceful oasis--classy, well decorated, quiet, etc. We had a room with an ocean view (actually looking... Read more across a street and several buildings) which we really enjoyed. The room was clean/quiet/comfortable. The bed was great. We had a sliding glass door which we opened to have a nice ocean breeze. The pool area is small but nice. The two small pools are really plunge pools, and although our kids enjoyed them, they aren't really kid pools. There is poolside drink/food service. There is always fresh ice water there. It's nice to come back from a busy day beaching, shopping, etc to relax around the pool. The pools close at 6pm on Fri and Sat night so people can enjoy cocktails and music in the courtyard. We took a car service from the airport, then spent our days exploring the area on foot. (By the way, I would highly recommend Crown limosine service. Their drivers, vehicles, and customer service was top notch) We walked to the Santa Monica Pier, Beach, downtown, shopping, and to restaurants. We also went for runs on the beachwalk/bikepath. I would recommend going away, rather than toward venice beach. Customer service at the hotel was, of course, very good. I would highly recommend this hotel. It was also within close driving distance to the coastal highway, westwood, UCLA, hollywood, etc. Read less
First of all the bed and pillows are amazing so you will sleep like a baby with the breeze blowing in your ocean front room. The staff are friendly and accommodating. No matter how many times you... Read more need into your valet parked car, it is not a problem. Free bicycles and locks were readily available. The food is amazing and reasonably priced as are the beverages in the bar, restaurant and pool area. Speaking of bar- it rocked on Friday night! The pools are lovely although shaded in the afternoon. When the sun is high there are many shady spots to choose from. The concierge Sheri was super accommodating. Two nights in the area was not enough. Read less
