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 stayed at the Viceroy in Santa Monica for a quick Birthday trip. The hotel was clean, beautiful and so accommodating. We felt it was covid safe & so friendly. It was a great escape with the outdoor bar/restaurant & pool area!

Horrible stay. If you want to be charged for fees left and right stay here. We were also charged for a broken lamp that cost $300. Idk what lamp costs that’s much money but my boyfriend and I left the room in great condition. We barely spent anytime in while we were there.

Standard rooms are too small for a family of 5. (3 kids under 8yr). Loved the bathroom toiletries. Pool is a bit small (for kids and floating) and still warming up.

The Viceroy is a throw back hotel with some basic upgrades in Santa Monica on Ocean Avenue. There is no concierge on site and do not think that you will get area recommendations or suggestions here bc there is no hotel concierge and its also a cash free hotel so the idea of getting a large bill broke down to give tips - no can do. Also no help with luggage bc without bills to tip who is going to use their bellman -- very weird. Also the hotel has full size beds, what hotel uses full size beds in this day and age? Save your money and look at other options than the Viceroy in Santa Monica. Read less
