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.

I really enjoyed my time at this property. Two things. One, no complimentary coffee. No coffee maker in the room. Had to purchase coffee at the coffee bar.

The service was wonderful. They really went out of their way to make us feel special for our anniversary and just in general from the time of check in to exiting. The room was amazingggg. This was not a regular hotel room. The detail that is put into their rooms is incredible. I loved everything about this hotel.
