    What’s the best time to visit Viceroy Santa Monica?

    You can easily enjoy Viceroy Santa Monica year-round, but the best time to visit really depends on your comfort level with crowds. Summer tends to be the peak season for national and international visitors, as well as locals wanting a weekend getaway. With the exception of gloomy June, Santa Monica’s climate is fairly temperate. Late September, early October and the spring months are less busy times to travel to this unique city. Because the luxury hotel maintains its reputation as a hot spot for dining, cocktails, events and nightlife, a stay on the grounds is a chic experience any time of the year.

    What are the rooms like at Viceroy Santa Monica?

    Viceroy Santa Monica, the hotel that launched the Hollywood Regency design resurgence, boasts 162 bright and elegant guest rooms with views of the ocean, city or glamorous hotel pool. Amenities include Sferra linens, full-size Neil George bath, hair and body products, hi-def Sony TVs and wireless high speed Internet. In fall 2013, the rooms will get updated with a cool-blue color scheme.

    From the 640-square-foot, one-bedroom Empire Suite, relax in the oversized bathroom’s whirlpool tub or take in the sweeping Pacific vista from the balcony. With a marble entry fit for royalty, the presidential-penthouse-caliber Monarch Suite is 780 square feet of opulent, bespoke design with many of the furnishings made specifically for this room.

    Where is Viceroy Santa Monica located?

    Ten minutes by car from Los Angeles International Airport and one block from the beach in the heart of the downtown shopping, dining and hotel hub, Viceroy Santa Monica is a stylish spot. Convenient to the 10 freeway and Pacific Coast Highway, the hotel is good for business and leisure travelers who want quick access to the rest of Los Angeles. Still, the beauty of Viceroy’s home address is that it is walking distance from the historic Santa Monica Pier and to Main Street, an upscale surfside neighborhood packed with hip boutiques, art galleries, music venues and restaurants. The neighborhood’s emerging identity as a part of tech, startup and media district Silicon Beach is creating new life for the already-popular Santa Monica hotel. Location is, after all, everything.
