Expert Review

Santa Monica's Viceroy is loaded with such tantalizing eye-candy, even non-designer enthusiasts will be impressed. The striking lobby blends an unconventional array of colors – mainly blue, greens, grays, and sleek whites – with an eclectic mishmash of furniture and fixtures, plus a spectacular mosaic comprised of custom-made dishes mounted on mirrored walls. Off the lobby is the super-chic pool area, where loungers, cabañas, and white-leather arm chairs are set around tables where dinner and drinks are served. Above all of this self-conscious style, the hotel’s 163 spacious rooms come with sitting areas, writing desks, and mirrors behind the beds which not only reflect the ocean views you’ll have from your windows (if you’re lucky enough to be in an ocean-facing room), they also make the space look roomier. Custom beds are draped in fine linens and down comforters. Large marble bathrooms have seated vanities, soaking tubs and beauty bars. With the beach just a stroll away, the Viceroy is a smart alternative to your typical beach resort with a chic atmosphere that can’t be beat.
