We stayed for only one night and had a great experience. In fairness, we booked the hotel last minute on hotels tonight. So for the discounted price we had a great time. I can't say we would have been thrilled had we paid full price. The rooms were on the smaller side but very clean. Comfy beds. Overpriced room service,...

There is a lot to like about The Viceroy but compared to The London (where we also stayed on this trip) it could do with a bit more attention to detail. Let's start with the good bits - the location is great, easy access to lots of fun places in Santa Monica and Venice Beach and the room (a junior...

This is the first time we stayed at Viceroy. It was ok, location is good, the design is interesting. The rooms are small but nice. The service is also good. I think that i will return to West Hollywood the next time, so i cant say that i will go back here.

They charge 9$ for a bottle of water and provide beach towels for 20$, which may be ok in some places, but they also charge a non-negotiable 25$ resort fee.I had not seen this when I made the reservation on Booking.com. They actually charged me 26$, and when I complained, they just shrugged. Every other resort I have ever been...

The hotel is exactly as pictured on the website. Very good location and clean rooms. Room service was very efficient and in room dining made some delicious snacks. Definitely consider if you're looking for a place to stay in Santa Monica. Down side is that it might be a little noisy and thus hard to fall asleep on Fridays when...

Stayed there earlier this year when visiting friends and really liked it. Found it via there Hotel Tonight app and was described as hip, which is not normally my preference but rooms were really nice, decent gym, and had a great outdoor lounge and pool. Location is great too, just a couple blocks from the beach and right on main...

I chose the Viceroy for a 4 night stay with my family (husband, 2 children). We booked two connecting rooms and everything went ok (just ok) until our third night, The Viceroy Santa Monica ALLOWED GUESTS AND NON GUESTS TO PARTY INSIDE ONE OF THE ROOMS. And, unlucky me, this room was RIGHT ABOVE MINE. You can imagine what sort...

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.
