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 would recommend staying in this hotel, overall had an amazing experience, the pool and cabanas are great, sun during this time only shines on the pool until 1pm, rooms are beautifully designed and the staff is great!

Just upset they didn't let us eat our own food outside even though the first employee said yes. We have restrictions for food and needed to eat, not in our rooms, and there was no one around and still didn't let.

Stayed for 2 nights celebrating a birthday. Kendra and John comped us an upgrade to a full ocean view room. We were welcomed with roses, sparking wine and a box of chocolates. Room and property were spotless. Sheets and bed comfortable. Chic decor. Good location. Parking is expensive but that is the nature of Santa Monica.

The stay at the Viceroy was amazing. Tesh, was dedicated and deeply involved in the client experience. My flight was delayed and I thought I would miss my reservation but he was able to hold it for me. Bj was also extremely helpful, gave us eatery locations, helped with bicycle rentals and just made it awesome.
