TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We arrived just before 11pm and were greeted by Eddie at the front desk who graciously upgraded us to an ocean view suite. This was a very kind gesture and much appreciated. Feeling a bit hungry... Read more from a long travel day we walked over to the bar for a quick snack and a cocktail. There we met Dora who let us know the kitchen had closed but she would she what she could do. She came back and said we could order as we pleased. Within 10 minutes we had some great food and fabulous cocktails. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks to a great hotel with a great staff.

Ended up here after a trip to Park City, Utah. Needless to say, the champagne and seat offered at check-in, ocean view room and cozy bed was a much needed change of scenery. Pleasant staff and did I... Read more mention the wonderful view?? My only complaint was that I stayed one night. Argh! Read less
We were staying here as we were in town for a wedding. The hotel was beautiful. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, we were on the third floor with a city view - which... Read more was mainly trees and overlooking the restaurant below. We didn't mind as we weren't there to hang out in a hotel room. In preparation for the wedding, I had asked if the Concierge could assist me in suggesting a near by hair salon. He instantly named a place that was reasonable priced and in walking distance. He scheduled my appointment for me and left me a note to confirm and provide the directions. In addition, he had my husband`s suit dry cleaned and had the pant let out at his request within 24 hours. The pools aren`t large and the sun only hits the whole area for a short period of time in the day, however, it`s lovely and with the weather we were having, it was still warm in the shade. We only used the pool to dip in and cool off anyway. For the style of the hotel, I think they are suited. We borrowed bikes one morning and rode down the beach. We walked the area a lot - the hotel is in a great location. We had a late night (red eye) flight on our last day and for a nominal fee they were able to provide us a 6pm check out - was very worth it! I would certainly recommend this hotel and would love to go back. Read less

Read more So often these days hotels try to charge as much as possible with no sense of grace when changes are requested to your rate or room.....BUT....not The Viceroy Santa Monica. Our reservation was booked 3 months in advance and just by happenstance I went on their website one day prior to the trip and saw a Summer Sale rate that allowed me to have a better room at $100 less per night than my original reservation. I called and spoke to their Rooms Manager who graciously changed my rate and my room category to reflect the sale. Hence the title of my review....Not only a beautiful hotel, but a gracious one as well. Read less
