Viceroy Santa Monica

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

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.

From the moment we arrived with glasses of prosecco offered to all of us until the farewells days later we had an incredible experience at the Viceroy. In particular the staff members Bj and Alejandro were so helpful and fun. The rooms were beautiful, spotless, and incredibly comfortable beds for a sublime night's sleep. Every day we used the beach bikes to go exploring. The location is unbelievable, across the street from the beach and so close to all the great restaurants and night life. I will definitely come back and recommend this destination to many friends. Read less

The blankets were a little too warm, so we had some difficulty sleeping. We didn't want to turn up the A/C and waste energy, but if we opened the patio door, the ambient noise was too loud. Also, we could have used another storage area for luggage and another set of drawers for clothes. Otherwise, the room was wonderful, with a great view and… Read more

A small and very cool hotel. Nice big room well appointed. Close to the pier, Venice and of course the beach. It sits just behind the Shutters hotel so is prime Santa Monica. A short walk gets you everywhere. Staff were all great, restaurant was very good as well. Starbucks round the corner for a morning coffee. A great place to stay during a trip… Read more
