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.

Nothing special, common, ordinary... integrity of room lacking, paint peeling, carpet and bathroom old, used up... Property charges well, costs high... services lack... staff disinterested, polite, yet ineffective

We stayed here for a few days and it was a lovely respite from evacuation from our home during the fires. They welcomed us and our dog and offered a percentage off for evacuees. The room service food was excellent and the hotel service in general was very good. It’s a hip hotel for those who want to be seen and socialize with others who want the same thing. The restaurant is also lovely but you have to put up with the vibe I described. Most staff in the lobby are under 30. There is some lack of experience that showed, but not in the most important places. Would definitely return. We appreciated all they did for us. Read less

This was some what off putting as we where heading to bed. I would add the staff where great but that doesn't improve the small pool that you cant really swim in and the fitness room is just that a hotel room that has been converted with a few bits to keep you amused Read less

This is the best location, hotel facility, staff, restaurant, pool, room, accommodation, room service, everything. We love it all. Each time I come into town for business I stay there. And I stay with my family on vacation.

Nothing wow, decent it is. However, I have seen better Viceroy properties. This hotel leans towards a midscale boutique category The sound insulation is quite poor, when sleeping at night I can easily hear the sounds from the surroundings
