We stayed at the Viceroy Santa Monica for 4 nights and it certainly had some plus and minuses. We had an Ocean View King Suite, which was very spacious and met our needs beautifully. The bathroom was very large with a huge walk-in shower and the bath products were nice quality. Robes and slippers really made it feel like a...

The Viceroy is a modern boutique hotel that is very welcoming and well run. The room and bathrooms are very nice and the staff is quite helpful. The location offers excellent access to a great stretch of the beach without the price of properties that line the beach. The pool area is nice but is under the shade most of...

We received a lovely welcome, after an 11 hour flight a glass of fizz was a real treat. The room was beautifully appointed although it was a little odd having twin beds rather than a king/super double. Great facilities including gym and pool and the bar was really cool. Fantastic location, being a 2 minute walk from the beach and...

The pool area is very pretty but shaded most of the day. The rental bikes are good but you need to hurry up to get one because ther are pretty popular. the brackfast isn't extraordinary but it's good.

I booked this hotel as a bit of a special treat to end a big trip and have to say was very disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice hotel with friendly front desk staff. However it is just nowhere near value for money - even in an expensive area such as Santa Monica. For a start, the...

My husband and I stayed at Viceroy while visiting our daughter who attends USC. It was a wonderful experience from the minute we were greeted by valet! I couldn't remember the attendants name but he was super friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. Once inside we were checked in by Marcus who made our stay impeccable! Super friendly,...

This was the first hotel we stayed in on our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful. Stunning decor and always smells very nice. The service was fantastic. A glass of champagne on arrival and very friendly valet staff, check in staff etc. The concierge was incredibly helpful and informative. Our room was stunning. A great size with storage space, air conditioning...

My girlfriend and I made a last minute trip to Los Angeles. We really had no plans and knew very little about LA. We had first class treatment from the initial greeting to the final checkout. Sheri, the concierge, was terrific. Her recommendations were all excellent from tours to shopping to eating. All the staff went above and beyond in...

Our stay here was lovely, we wanted somewhere to chill and this was perfect. The staff were very friendly, super helpful and the location was spot on. It's right near the beach but also walking distance from so many lovely restaurants and shopping area.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
