Amid the sand and surf sanctuaries that line the Santa Monica coast, one property offers a sophisticated allure like no others. The Viceroy’s modern mix seems more at home in Hollywood, but perhaps that’s exactly what sleepy Santa Monica needs…a big dose of glamour.
Designed by Los Angeles’ Kelly Wearstler with her panache for Hollywood Regency lines and pops of color, you can’t help but be dazzled by the Viceroy’s unique contemporary slant. But never fear…this place is California to the core.
Recommended Resort: Viceroy Santa Monica. One of eight Viceroy hotels in the collection, the Santa Monica venue embraces the pool culture of its coastal home, where ’60s cool blends beautifully with celebrity chic. The pool is definitely the place to be, with white and black cabana, sparking water and a social set mixing over mint juleps and spiked strawberry lemonades.
All the stylishly appointed 162 guest rooms or suites overlook either the pool or palm garden and feature an oversized shower, Neil George products and a media hub.
