Hotel was advertised with a large pool and big pool area, not the case

This is a fantastic hotel. It is a retreat within the city and it is a short block from the beach. perfect!

Able to use a bike whenever. The pool area only had sun for about 4 hours or so a day and had to move seats a lot and there wasn’t enough seating. Had to sit on the ground a lot

Very charming. Beautiful decoration and great vibe. Staff is great!

This hotel advertised itself as a beach resort. It is NOT a beach resort it’s across the freeway from the beach and there isn’t even a pool. We have a toddler and. 5 month old and got a rare weekend get away ...exhausted we were seeking out a sleepy place on beach for peace and quiet. Viceroy is the exact opposite. I paid the same as an on beach resort for a loud hip not my scene right now joint.

excellent service helpful concierge The breakfasts were tasty

It is a great hotel and we had a beautiful view of the pool area. Loved that! The bathtub are was a bit old with mildew stains which was gross. Also the towels were very old and used. If this was rectified it would be an excellent hotel!

Great location! We walked to the beach every morning. We also walked to 3rd Street Promenade for our meals and shopping. Valet is pricey, but the attendants are great. Nice and quiet both day and night! We will definitely stay here again.

Good hotel. But be aware they charge $28 a day amenity fee . Didn’t realize that until it came time to check out. $50 a day to park as well. But if you walk 5 blocks you can park for $17.50 a night. Hotel is located a little far from bars and restaurants . Also be aware that because of its location let’s say you want a sandwich at 10 pm on a Friday night you will have to walk a considerable distance if you don’t want the $20 chicken sandwich. Which was actually a good sandwich. Also on NEw Years Eve I got to hotel at 1 am. Bar was already closed. But Santa Monica in general closes early. It’s odd for me that getting a sandwich or a beer after 10 pm was difficult but that’s not the hotels fault just an observation. Room was great and the staff was wonderful. All in all a good stay but be prepared to walk or Uber everywhere

Great experience but so many hidden fees though, would be better if everything is included with the price at first so you know what to expect

Wonderful hotel. But huge fees for parking, breakfast, decent Wifi - sticker shock every time you turn around. If you're lucky, they'll waive the Resort Fee. But don't plan on getting out of there for anything close to your original room rate.

great service beautiful decorated room, close to walk to all kinds of things to do. fast car valet- great bar, pool area was very hip and cool. nice view from the pool. bathroom was luxiourios however I could not get the tub stop to work so would have loved that but the rest of the amenities in the room were top notch.

The champagne welcome was a nice first impression. The decor is modern and chic but not over the top. The rooms were fine. Comfortable beds, nice bathroom, fabulous spa products, and nice view of pool. Coffee was nice in the lobby each morning, as I was up early with East coast timing. We had a very special dinner before taking my daughter to UCLA. Perfect location only steps to the ocean!

Courteous and professional staff combined with gorgeous decor and furnishings makes this a must-stay hotel if you're in Sanya Monica. Room service was delicious. Having beverages with friends by the pool in the evening was memorable. Oh, and you're only a stone's throw from the beach! Wonderful stay.

Welcoming, Proseco at check in was nice. Staff very friendly. Wonderful first time experience.

Thank you for your response! We have little control over the way third parties such as Orbitz choose to highlight our facilities but we will work to see if there is a way we can be more transparent about the size of our pools. Safe Travels!

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion of our hotel. Viceroy Santa Monica prides itself on being thorough in honest in our advertisements. We do not explicitly state anywhere that we are beach front property as we understand we are located across the street from the beautiful Santa Monica Beach. I am sorry if you were misinformed or if we may not have met your expectations. All the best to you.
