You Have to try it! A review of Viceroy Santa Monica
This hotel is amazing! I've done a lot of traveling over the past 20 years and I've never had such a wonderful experience. From what I've heard, the hotel used to be a 2-star dump called Pacific Shore and it was completely renovated in 2002. When I first walked into the Viceroy, I honestly gasped. I wasn't expecting anything like what I'd seen! The decor of the lobby was breathtaking, as was the Cameo Bar and the Whist restuarant. Even the pool area has a Hollywood feel! Cabanas, a sundeck and big palm trees make you feel right in the middle of a movie set. Basically, I adore this hotel and will use it for all my CA travels. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Now, there is kind of wait for drinks at the bar, but it's worth it. People-watching helps pass the time. (total LA crowd) The rooms all have high speed DSL (thank god!) and frette linens. Comfort, style and class. And the location is to die for. The beach, shopping, restaurants..all in walking distance. I was there for a week and I loved it. You can't go wrong with the Viceroy.
