Although I have lived most of my life in Southern California, I have rarely been to Santa Monica. This year for a special anniversary weekend, my husband suggested going to the coast instead of our usual mid-winter vacation spots of Palm Springs or Las Vegas. However, even after studying the google map, I was a little unclear about where the...

Every time I come to CA for business trips I stay at the Viceroy. It is slightly on the expensive side but it is so worth it for the location, ambience, hotel quality, etc. Every time I stay there I seem to run into someone famous out by the pool. It's always fun to see the car show out front...

I have stayed at Viceroy hotels many times for work and/or relaxation and enjoy the location and privacy this Santa Monica Viceroy has to offer. Our trip was for vacation and it gave us the pleasure of using the services of their Concierge team. During our stay we were taken care of by Sheri who did an outstanding job of...

The Viceroy is absolutely beautiful. From the moment I walked into the lobby, I knew that I chose the most heavenly place to stay in Santa Monica. The check-in was seamless and I was offered a welcome glass of champagne. The hotel is well laid out, and the pool is spectacularly elegant and sophisticated. And the room...divine. The room was...

This was not a vacation (were in town for a funeral) so we did not book at Shutters across the street which is an amazing place. Pros: -comfortable bed and pillows -attractive Jonathan Adler like furnishings -breakfast is good -Front desk is responsive (to many small problems) Cons: -You don't get individually wrapped products in the bathroom. They are large...

Had a great time with my family here. The hotel is great, clean and fun. Located a block from the beach and near everything in Santa Monica. The hotel staff was also very helpful and accommodating. One front desk employee in particular, Andres, really helped us find good places to eat and go out around Santa Monica while also making...

I've been coming to the West Coast for work for a little over two years now and every time I stay at the Viceroy. While some might argue that you should try a variety places I tend to agree with those in the "don't fix what isn't broken" school of thought. From the first stay a few years ago to...

This is a stylishly decorated hotel with a beautiful pool area that is everything you would expect a Southern California hotel to be. We were also impressed with the level of customer service.

It's not easy finding somewhere to stay in Los Angeles given the diversity and spread of neighbourhoods and options. But, if you're visiting LA as a tourist: 1. Stay in Santa Monica 2. Stay at the Viceroy. From the moment we arrived, service at the Viceroy was second to none. Our room overlooking the Pacific Ocean was modern, spacious, and...

We had a two night stay here and loved it. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the customer service was excellent. We loved the outdoor area and their selection of drinks.

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.
