Viceroy Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Posted on February 14, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Regarded as the hot favorite of the entertainers, the Viceroy Santa Monica is the stunning seaside boutique retreat. By just a look, the hotel seems to be an assortment of the architectural wonders boasting the shimmering white contemporary tables, parakeet-green Chesterfields, French dining furniture, deco-style gazebos, and daisy fresh decor in the rooms. And yes, in this array, the grounds are also not behind with their feature of verdant tranquility that takes you far from the hustles of the close by boutique avenue.

This exclusive Viceroy Santa Monica on the Ocean Avenue is among the Hippest New Hotels and 50 Hottest Hotels on the planet according to the Condé Nast Traveler. Nestled across the civic center just near the Santa Monica beach as well as the pier, the remarkably melodramatic Viceroy is the best venue for the guests who belong to the industries of entertainment, recording, and fashion.

Inside, the meeting areas including the lobby are well adorned in diversely theatrical décor, high-back chairs, over-sized white lounges, glass tables, and deep sofas. Additionally, the hotel is also the abode of the French-California cuisine that is listed in the top 50 hotel restaurants in the world by Food & Wine magazine. Adding to its dramatic ambiance is the Cameo Bar where entertainment is endless by the celebrities as you catch one of the private outdoor cabanas for dining flanked by dual outdoor pools.


At the Viceroy Santa Monica, there are around 162 guest rooms that are carefully tucked on the building’s eight levels and that each of them features pool or ocean vistas. In each of them, the decor features vinyl benches, Berber carpeting, silk chairs, abundant mirror settings, and geometric shapes. And yes, the  bathrooms in marble are equipped with the pedestal sinks, separate vanities, and English toiletries. The other amenities are: High-speed Internet access, cable/satellite television channels, DVD/VCR, video-game console, pay movies, CD player, air conditioning, refrigerator, minibar, separate sitting area, voice mail, dial-up Internet access, multi-line phone, bathrobes, hair dryer, premium bedding, iron/ironing board, safe, clock radio, and cribs.

My favorite here is the rooms that offer the ocean view stretching the coast. However, if you are looking for the private balconies, go for the Viceroy and Grande rooms. A Grande Room or an Empire Suite should concern you if you desire oversized bathrooms with marble wet rooms as well as vanity tables.

All the rooms here are non-smoking strictly!

At the Viceroy Santa Monica, there is only restaurant named Whist that is already praised for its great cuisine. At this restaurant perched on the lobby level, you enjoy dining on its bright green chairs, white linened tables, wall exhibit of five shelves of crockery, and with padded gray banquettes. If you wish, you can also dine outdoor by the pool via the cabanas.

At the mirrored-ceiling Cameo Bar in the lobby, you are offered light fare amidst the diverse seating arrangements that feature low padded benches, high backed chairs, big white lounges, and glass tables. You can enjoy the same even in your private cabana at the poolside.

Alternatively, a room service will bring you the restaurant menu directly into your room during the limited hours.
