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.

Beautiful boutique hotel in a great location. We purchased a luxury escape and it ticked all the boxes. All staff were friendly warm and welcoming. Location is great and if you manage to get the local hire scooters to work, nothing is out of reach. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a special luxury getaway. We probably wont return to USA but if we do I would definitely stay again. Our wonderful server at breakfast really went over and above for us, just a small thing but making sure my husbands toast was cooked well enough was such a high level of customer service. Read less

I was impressed by the moment I approached the registration desk, where I was warmly greeted and professionally attended to. The hotel is clean and modern, and an easy walk to key areas in Santa Monica. My room was well appointed and quite comfortable. This place is all about quality!

Good location in downtown Santa Monica and close to the beach, the Viceroy is a relatively nice hotel. Service is mediocre. The Viceroy fine for business travel, but a relatively bad value given poor service. I would not recommend others.
