Just 2 blocks from the beach and famed Santa Monica Pier, the bold and dramatic Viceroy appeals to cosmopolitan guests in the recording, entertainment, and fashion industries – and tourists who want to drink in the funkiness of the surrounding area.
The lobby and gathering areas feature dramatic décor: over-sized white chaise longues, high-backed chairs, deep sofas, and glass cocktail tables. In addition to offering 24-hour room service, the Viceroy is home to the French-California cuisine of Whist restaurant. What's more, the boldly designed Cameo Bar entertains guests with private outdoor dining cabanas surrounding 2 outdoor pools - a prime location for celebrity watching.
When not watching for stars, you can work out in the hotel's 24-hour fitness center, which is stocked with the latest cardio and weight-training equipment. After your workout, you can relax with massages or in-room beauty and spa services. Need to stay connected? Wired and wireless Internet access is available in public areas for an additional fee. An onsite library with computers is available as well.
Additional perks include sparkling wine upon arrival, as well as a 10% discount at the restaurant. In the mornings, you can enjoy a selection of coffees, teas, and homemade pastries.
The Viceroy's 162 guestrooms feature flat-screen TVs, CD and DVD players, Italian designer linens and bathrobes, down comforters and pillows, fully-stocked minibars, wired and wireless Internet access for a surcharge, and ocean or pool views. Marble bathrooms come complete with separate vanities, pedestal sinks, and upscale complimentary English toiletries. Berber carpets, yellow vinyl benches, and green silk chairs make the Viceroy's rooms more than just the typical beach hotel rooms. Rooms also include blackout drapes/curtains, climate control, desks, electronic/magnetic keys, iPod® docking stations, and windows that open. Daily housekeeping, complimentary newspapers, wake-up calls, and rollaway beds are available on request.
