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.

We enjoyed our mini-staycation at the Viceroy. The staff was very accommodating and the location was ideal! Easy access to the beach and restaurants. My daughter loved having her own bed to jump and play on. Will definitely stay here again!

We needed to be in Los Angeles during some of the darkest days of COVID. The Viceroy made us feel comfortable both with their special attention to cleanliness and safety. We were met at the front desk by welcoming staff. The lobby was open and all windows and doors were open for maximum circulation. PLUS the bed was so lovely.

I had a wonderfully relaxing trip, the location was perfect and the hotel is well appointed. The proximity to the beach and restaurants was ideal. The view of the ocean from my room exceeded expectations. The staff was more than helpful and friendly. I truly enjoyed my time and will return soon for sure!

I had a great 3 night stay at Viceroy. When I arrived I was greeted with a smile and a welcome cocktail which was much appreciated after a long flight. To top off the check-in experience, the manager even provided a self-curated list of popular restaurants in the area. Even though the amenities throughout my stay were limited due to Covid restrictions, the staff made up for it with their kind, prompt, and attentive service. Thank you for making my stay memorable. I can't wait to return when the restrictions are lifted so I can experience all that Viceroy Santa Monica as to offer. Read less

I booked this hotel room on hotels tonight and got a very good rate. Staff was friendly, helpful, said yes to all of the requests, and was very easy-going. The room was beautiful overlooking the ocean and while there was nothing really going on because of Covid, it was a seamless and stress-free stay. I cannot say that for other hotels in Santa Monica I have experienced (I’m looking at you, Huntley Hotel). Great night of sleep, excellent water pressure, hot water within seconds, perfect ambient room temperature, friendly staff, everything a hotel should be. Read less
