They put theVice in Viceroy A review of Viceroy Santa Monica
The location is excellent and just a City block walk to the beach. The room was ok but small. The stopper in the tub was not attached so I had to hook it up when I wanted to take a bath. The handle on the hot water faucet fell off a few times. Once when the room was cleaned, they didn't leave any towels and I overhead guests asking for towels too. Don't expect to get a towel by the pool either. You have to wait until they decide to bring them out. Not many people by the pool - mostly women with fake boobs trying to get discovered. The breakfast was pretty good at the restaurant but the buffet at Loews was better and at about the same price plus you get an ocean view. Not many kids here so if you have kids, you may want to opt for Loews. If you have have you own notebook computer, the T1 service was free (for now). The bar had a good female to male ratio so this is a good place for single guys.
