Viceroy Hotel, Santa Monica

Opulent furnishings meet Californian beach life at this decadently stylish hotel. We say ‘hotel’, but the Viceroy hints at a luxurious lifestyle and has the intimate feel of a private members club. Eclectic lounge styling plus an attentive yet discreet concierge service makes the Viceroy a favorite amongst those famous faces seeking to keep a low profile. Throw in a 24 hour fitness center, a library, garden gazebos and a plethora of dining options and you have a few big reasons why it’s hard to tear yourself away from the hotel.


Santa Monica means giant white sandy Southern Californian beach where you can surf to your heart’s content. Plus, you’re within easy reach of Hollywood, LA’s incredible contemporary art galleries, luxury and vintage shopping and immaculate golf courses. And then there’s the famous Santa Monica Pier, Southern California’s cutest landmark where you can pick up a candyfloss and ride the Ferris wheel.

your room

When it comes to luxury in LA the stakes are pretty high but the Viceroy doesn’t disappoint; expect a gigantic doughy bed and a bathroom the size of the average double bedroom laden with some very select products for a spot of extra pampering.

why we like it

The pool would be reason enough, but this is LA and staying at the Viceroy grants you a certain degree of kudos. Plus the eclectic yet immaculate styling is a feast for anyone with an eye for design.
