Editorial review:

This British-style hotel is the place to be seen in the Santa Monica area. The bar is great, and the rooms are decorated all in white. Some complain that the patrons try a bit too hard to be trendy and can be tiresome, but this style icon is definitely worth a visit.

    The Viceroy staff members were extremely courteous and respectful. My husband and I were treated very well, and any request we made was granted with efficiency. We both really appreciate the professionalism and expertise of James, our Concierge.

    Upon approaching the Concierge desk to pick up vouchers, I noticed that a Viceroy guest was seated at the Concierge desk, using the desktop computer, and talking loudly on his cell phone. The language he was using in his conversation was innapropriate and extremely offensive. Although I quickly realized that this man was clearly not the concierge, I also felt embarrassed that this behavior is what anyone would witness upon entering or exiting the Viceroy.

    Very warm and friendly staff, particular evening ambient, nice for a dinner in the garden or just for a drink. Very comfortable room with nice ocean view. Best location to visit la area.

  • Older travelers

    Tasteful indoor decoration. Very upbeat modern vibe. Good valet service for car pickup.

    Room lacked some very basic and common amenities:no shower cap; coffee maker; no bath mat inside the very old and high edged bathtubs. Would have been so easy to slip. Also the end table lamps had pull chains placed so high, we had to get out of bed in order to turn them off and on. Very strange. We specifically asked for a very quiet room when we booked and it was noted on the computer when we checked in (thank you), but they didn't tell us was that the Viceroy is now an upbeat night club until 1 a.m. every weekend night with a throbbing base which rocks the wall all the way up to our 7th story room. We couldn't sleep until after 1 am. We just thought somebody should have warned us.

    My main reason for staying at the Viceroy was to look at the Interior designs

    The lobby, bar and restaurant were too dark and noisy - no sound attenuation

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Friendly staff; good food and reasonable location

    There are no coffee facilities in the room. Lighting is terrible in the foyer and entry. Smoking area did not reflect the standard of the hotel

    Looks good. Close to the beach.

    Wall thin as paper. Heard everything in adjacent rooms. Been woke up multiple times by party outside & party in conectig room & and even heard the tv from the adjacent room in the morning ... Party with dj on friday and saturday night at the pool area = was like having a dj in our room until 1 am. Drinks at the bar overpriced, breakfast overpriced, parking overpriced. Over all hotel over rated and over priced­. Would never go back!

    The platforms of the beds stick out too far...I Have a large scrape and bruise from hitting one of them...no manager was available to talk with

    Nice back yard, nice staff (exclude reception girl)

    service, friendly employees

    to crouded in the weekends price to high in comparison with other hotels we have been swimming pool to small

  • Family with children

    Loved the vibey atmosphere, the location was great! Rooms large, clean and chic! Great views of sea or city and mountains. Excellent staff.

    On very noisy block! Had to have aircon on at all times as windows could not be opened for noise. Pool area great but far too small. In the 5 days we spent there could not get pool chairs in the sun once!!

  • Family with children

    Restaurant is nice, great food (although they do not have bread).

    Do not take the oceanview rooms. View is quite poor as there are other buildings in front of the hotel and you have a very noisy highway just below your windows. Sun on the windows will make the room very hot during the day but air conditioning is like having a 747 at takeoff in your room so impossible to sleep. Basically oceanview rooms are extremely uncomfortable but the price you pay does not reflect it. Finally, I booked two rooms with queen beds and I got two rooms with King beds .... Avoid this place. Wasted money for an uncomfortable hotel.

    Unpretentious and friendly with elegance and style. The staff without exception were brilliant - meeting every little desire or solving problems. Dining experience was fabulous - Menu varied without being to lengthy and delivered the promise. Loved the social events around the pool area too. I enjoyed a pot of Earl Grey tea served to me speadily in the little reading room - perfect! The coffee in house is also wonderful, however, the location of the hotel gave me opportunity to walk and seek out other coffee destinations. The Curtain over the road sitting in their little kitchen area was a great experience, or walking up Main St to an Organic coffee house etc. I will certainly make a point to stay again as my halfway treat when traveling between Uk and NZ. It makes the trip worthwhile, enjoyable and sorts out the jet lag on that long journey.

    I thought I didn't like that there wasn't tea and coffee making in the room. However, it made me drink more water and not too much tea and coffee alone in my room. I got to seek out other interesting coffee and tea destinations.

  • Couple

    Trendy boutique hotel. Adequate outdoor seating near pool. Bathrooms were very nice.

    Poor customer service experience after complaining about the DJ music on Friday & Saturday nights (the only nights of our stay). Due to the music that blasts, you can't sleep. Walls are paper thin so you hear every word from the room next door. When I booked this hotel with breakfast included, Booked.net and Viceroy failed to disclose that "breakfast" only includes one item from the menu. Annoying. This hotel is too expensive and it falls short of satisfactory.

    First of the like the design of the Hotel and color coordination Size of the room and above all great and friendly staff . Will stay there Again if I Visit LA .

    I asked fior upgrade room and they offered 25 dollars per might for Upgrade .

But after addressing it to the Manager he was kind and reasonable And clear the extra charges out .
