Viceroy Hotel Review
Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, California
Viceroy Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel located just two blocks away from the Santa Monica Beach, has been called "One of the Hippest New Hotels" and "One of the 50 Hottest Hotels in the World" by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine. The Viceroy Hotel is considered the "Hidden Hotspot" in Santa Monica that many locals don't even know about.
This boutique hotel features conventional architecture with an unassuming facade, giving the hotel a stark veneer, contradicting what really goes on inside. In spite of its apparent simplicity, Viceroy Hotel boasts dramatic furnishings, sleek decors and sophisticated works of art adorning the walls.
Added to the list is its lobby-level restaurant, The Whist, widely acclaimed for its appetizing Californian-Mediterranean cuisine with a French twist that is whipped up by the culinary master Chef Tony DiSalvo. The menu includes delectable dishes made from local and international products and mouthwatering seasonal desserts concocted by pastry chef Brooke Mosley. Whist, with its green chairs, crisp white linens and a wall displaying crockery along with its superb meals, was featured in the Food and Wine Magazine as "One of America's Top 50 Hotel Restaurants." Guests have a choice of enjoying their meals indoors or outdoors in the airy poolside cabanas. The hotel also has a full bar, the Cameo Bar, which connects the lobby to the pool deck, for guests' cocktails and drinks. The bar features large chaise lounge chairs, high-backed chairs, low cushioned benches, glass cocktail tables, a marble bar and a mirrored ceiling. There is also a great Happy Hour at the Cameo Bar.
Viceroy Hotel also features two heated outdoor swimming pools surrounded by comfy lounge chairs with throw pillows, tables, potted plants, slender palm trees and exclusive private dining cabanas. The cabanas are perfect for intimate meetings, casual gatherings, and other special occasions. The cabanas are also prime spots for celebrity watching since they are favorites of movie executives, fashion models and celebrities. The poolside is a sight to behold at night when the lamps and candles are lit and the light they emit cast a surreal glow on the pool and the surrounding greenery. An added plus is the hotel's complimentary 24-hour fitness center with cardio and weight training equipment. GreenBliss EcoSpa, the hotel's in-rouse portable spa, offers 100% pure and natural spa and beauty services are offered in your room or poolside. The Library, with a plasma screen, is a great place for a private film screening. The Library also features a backgammon table, comfortable setting and of course lots of books.
The kid-friendly Viceroy Hotel with its eight floors, has 162 air-conditioned non-smoking guest rooms. Each room has a sitting area with ocean, pool or palm views, lots of mirrors and clean-lined elegant furnishings which include silk chairs, vinyl benches and a marble-topped work desk. The beds are covered with 100% Egyptian cotton linens, feather duvets, comforters and pillows.
