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.

Service and staff were all excellent and friendly from arrival to departure. Room very clean, comfortable and quiet. Lobby does feel someone cold and sterile...but that is more the overall design I suppose M. I didn’t use many services since it was a quick stay for work. A

Everything about this hotel and its staff is excellent. Stayed 5 nights with my son on a recent catch up. Location is for me, perfect as I don’t feel you’d gain anything by being bang on the beach when in Santa Monica. The pool area, though could be bigger is more than

I stayed here recently during my first trip to LA and I'm so pleased I chose this hotel. The staff were excellent from arrival to departure and couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations and directions. We stayed in a fabulous room, bedroom and bathroom were both a

Spent a night at the Viceroy passing through LA and it couldn't have been better! Perfect location looking out at the beautiful ocean and walking distance to everything in Santa Monica. It's definitely improved since I stayed a couple years ago, the staff was incredibly

I stayed for business recently and I must say, this place is a gem! Very friendly and approachable staff especially for an intimate, small luxury boutique hotel. Valet was gracious and welcoming during my arrival (which was from a VERY long car ride). I was offered a lovely

Dear MsB2019, What a fantastic review. I am so happy to hear BJ and our Valet team greeted you graciously and that Maria was able to rectify a rather unfortunate exchange with our Guest Service Agent. Please know the conversation you may have had is not indicative of the relationships we consistently aim to create with our guests here at Viceroy Santa Monica. Rest assured this will be addressed so that we may be sure to continue to practice exceptional service. Additionally, the rumors are indeed true and we are excited to announce that renovation plans are in place within the next year so please come back soon! Sincerely, Michael Bridges General Manager

Yes our dog was quite happy here.
Uber is really cheap and reliable. Make sure you download the app before you go. I downloaded it while we were there and it wouldn't accept my credit card. My son had downloaded the app here in Australia and it worked for him.

The pool does not get sun all day. By 4pm the sun begins to vanish, maybe even earlier and by 6pm I'd say only 5% of the pool area has sun.

Hi, Do they have hair dryers in the rooms?
Yes they do. It may not be as nice as the one you have at home, but it is convenient.
