"Stylish hotel in a good location"
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 the day.
"Quirky and chique"
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 Main Street and ideally located for 3rd St promenade. Only downside was the air conditioning in the room was super noisy so we were woken up every time it kicked in during the night. Would recommend though!
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.
"The pool area is shaded!"
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 main reason we booked the hotel was for a pool and to relax in the sun, however we could not do this as the pool doesn't get the sun. Secondly, we must have chosen a bad time to stay with the hotel full to capacity due to an event - this meant the hotel was pretty much taken over by large groups, and finding the opportunity to find a seat at the bar or even get served at the bar was extremely difficult. We gave up and went elsewhere - not what you want or expect when staying at a supposedly relaxing boutique hotel. In essence we ended up paying $350 per night for a bed and a bathroom. Fortunately we did not have a car, or otherwise would have been subject to the additional charges for parking as well. I am afraind to say that we would not stay here again and we are very, very disappointed with our visit
The rooms are very small. Terrible bathroom. Terrible!!! No amenities. The gym its very incomplete, the lobby and the staff are very accesible and nice people. The pool area is small but nice. Excellent location.
