The Viceroy properties are usually chic and luxurious, but this property falls just a bit short of the mark. While the updated Hollywood Regency design is eye-catching in black, yellow, and ivory, and rooms are stylish enough, the furniture and upholstery shows minor wear. The landscape hits a higher note with 67 bungalow-style accommodations spread around several lovely courtyards and pools. The hotel aims to make the pool experience as pleasant as possible for all types of guests by offering one family pool and two adults-only pools. Fitness buffs can work out 24/7 on modern equipment, though the gym is small. The spa has a variety of treatments, including an exfoliation with black lava. Guests can dine on California cuisine at Citron or walk a few blocks into town and choose from a bevy of restaurants.
