Fabulous hotel with great amenities. We loved our room and our stay!

The hotel is amazing and it’s location even better. Can’t say anything negative about outlet experience.

Very friendly service and helpful responses to any and all questions or requests.

The property is unfortunately under construction which makes it a less pleasant stay.

Very pet friendly, great location. Would stay again.

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

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!
