Viceroy Santa Monica

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

The hotel

We’re suckers for unassuming packages that reveal treasures within, and this luxurious Santa Monica hotel, just a block’s walk from the Pacific, is a perfect example. It’s simple exterior and minimal signage give nothing away, but step beyond its bright green hedgerows and you’ll find a quietly confident and upscale oasis that positively oozes sophistication. From the modern elegance of its rooms and suites via the library (finished in shades of lemon and dark wood) to private dining cabanas, two heated pools and the Cast Restaurant and Lounge, serving healthy, flavourful cuisine that comes with a side order of sustainability, you just know you’re in excellent hands from the moment you check in.

Old everything except lobby. Valet parking was good and people were professional and polite. Other than than this hotel is purely over rated and the $1200 a night empire suite was a waste of $$.

My goodness. From the minute we arrived this place was stellar. We came for our wedding anniversary. BJ, our bellhop, showed us incredible service. Got us a bottle of complimentary champagne and provided us with incredible service! Highly recommend this place!

We stayed here in July + returned this week for another business trip! Warren and Pedro were the best servers, always so helpful and kind.

We stayed here in July + returned this week for another business trip! Warren and Pedro were the best servers, always so helpful and kind. The food is fantastic -- from the cauliflower to the burgers to the tuna poke from the amazing new chef. Lanet at the front desk was so helpful with all my questions and the entire staff is pleasant, welcoming and serve with a smile. California sunlight on the back patio can be seen even from the lobby and our Ocean front King room made the trip all the more special. Can't wait to return! Read less
