TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
I was a little hesitant to book this hotel as read through the reviews and found lots of negative posts ranging from 'lack of sun by the pool' and 'rooms not as advertised'. After much deliberation... Read more I went ahead and booked it and am so glad I did. what a stunning hotel! The lobby is beautiful, very well maintained and check in was an absolute breeze. We were a little early for check in time but our room was ready and off we went -complimentary champagne in hand! The staff in all areas of the hotel went above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and welcome and they all had permanent smiles on there faces which was lovely to see. The room was EXACTLY as shown in the pics...everything looked pristine so I really don't understand all the comments plus the bathroom was absolutely stunning. The pool area does have a lot of shaded areas (mainly due to the hotel position) however for a sun worshiper like me it was still fine and by moving around throughout the day I was able to still get as much sun as I needed. They also provide free tea and coffee from 8-10am in the bar area which I thought was a nice touch. Less than a five min walk from the beach as well - this hotel gets a huge thumbs up from me Read less
On the upside this place had great service, a comfy bed, a short one block jaunt to the beach and bikes to ride along the boardwalk. I was on a higher floor with a pool view and was not bothered by... Read more the cheesy music or ridiculous nightlife. My room did seem kind of rundown, though, even compared to other rooms that I saw. There's a lot of money staying here but not much class - twice, in the middle of the night, I got to listen to obnoxious European couples having knockdown, drag out screamfests. The first time it was sort of funny, the second time the yelling and door-slamming woke me from a dead sleep. Read less
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for four nights and we had such a lovely time. Check in was very easy and enjoyable, we had champagne on arrival. Our room was quite small but we had... Read more lovely views of the ocean. We had champagne and strawberries compliments of the hotel to celebrate our honeymoon and we though this was a nice touch. We wish we'd asked for a room upgrade and paid extra if we could as we could have done with the extra space in the room, however they may not have had any rooms available. It is such a relaxing hotel. We had some lovely days sat by the pool. Pools were heated and this was very nice as such a pleasure to get in and cool down but not get the shock of the water being ice cold. Plenty of towels to use and they also provide ice cold water throughout the day which is flavoured with lots of different fruit, which was also a nice touch. We made good use of the concierge who was called James and was so helpful. We were recommended some amazing places to go and we're so glad that we made use of this service. It made our honeymoon. We had problems with our room card quite a lot and we were offered a complimentary meal in the restaurant which we didn't make use of as we really wanted to eat out and enjoy the sights of Santa Monica but instead we had some cocktails at the bar which we really appreciated. They do a free bike rental service which we wish we'd done but didn't get round to it. It's a really central location and we would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in Santa Monica. Read less
I have wanted to stay here since I first saw the stunning Kelly Wearstler-designed space years ago. The lobby is beautiful, and still very well maintained. The style is classic, modern, and crisp... Read more . We arrived on a Monday evening at sunset and were warmly welcomed by Andrew at the front desk. We were shown to our room on the eighth floor, with a lovely view of the Pacific. Our room was spacious and clean, although a little worn in spots. Poolside breakfast outside was delicious the next morning. The front desk and door staff were super friendly and accommodating during our stay, and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Read less
We stayed at Viceroy for 4 nights on a holiday to Los Angeles. Location is great, short walk to the beach/pier and to center of Santa Monica. Hotel has very nice bicycles you can take out which we... Read more did almost every day. The pool area is nice as well. One thing to note, if your window faces the pool it can get a bit loud. Overall a great stay. Read less
