“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

Stayed at The Georgian 8/11-8/14 with my family. Visiting from South Florida. The hotel is elegant, clean and comfortable. Perfect location. MOST importantly--the staff could not have been any more attenttve--from the minute you walk in to check-out--from valet, to bellmen, to restaurant/bar staff to front desk, to housekeeping. This is the way a hotel SHOULD be run. Bravo. We'll be back.

For those guests who complain about the price--if $300/night is too much, then I recommend staying in LA at one of the chains for $149/night. Or--you can stay at Shutters in Santa Monica for $600/night.

Room Tip: High floor--partial Ocean works. We were in 706. Amazing.

Hotel is decorated in art deco style from 1930's. Rooms were very small and my "oceanfront" view was a very small window overlooking the street, large palm trees, and a very small piece of beach. The traffic outside never stopped... Busses, cars, trucks. UGH! Made the room very noisy! I paid $350+ for this room and it definitely was NOT worth it. Although the hotel is nice, there are so many other options for $350! I wanted to be close to the beach... We are across the street, but the street is busy, and then there is a short walk to the beach. Far when you have to carry stuff! Close to the Pier, which was convenient. The traffic noise and the nouse in the hallways made the stay unbearable. I would look into other hotels as I am sure there are better value hotels in this price range!

Room Tip: The "ocean view" rooms are not worth the additional cost.

We stayed for one night at the Georgian hotel. The staff were friendly and the rooms well kept. It has a great location near the Santa Monica pier and was within walking distance from a range of other attractions. Valet service was provided (at a a cost).

Central location, near the pier. Very disappointing service and welcome when we arrived. Rooms are ok size, no view unless you are at the front of hotel. Hotel is old style but very cute and clean. The bar/restaurant is lovely with great food. Overall would say the hotel is nice but way way over-priced for what you get.

I spent a long time assessing the various hotel options in Santa Monica and thought the Georgian would be the best option for us as a family of 4 with 2 young kids. We wanted a good place to stay where we could all be accommodated in one room or adjoining rooms.

This was a great option for us as we could get a king bed suite that was very spacious and comfortable without having to either incur the cost of taking 2 rooms or trying to squeeze into one room that was not designed for 4 people! The room was clean, spacious, nicely decorated and with a really good size bathroom.

The location is perfect - across the road from the beach, short walk to the pier or 3rd street promenade.

Wifi was free. Parking was $23 a day for in and out valet service. I had read that you could get cheaper parking nearby but in the end we didn't bother as the valet service was so efficient and convenient and the valet guys were all very nice and friendly.

If we have a chance to visit Santa Monica again, we would happily stay here again.

Although we have never stayed here as we live in LA, it's one of our favorite places for an early breakfast. The food and service is relaxing and delicious, we always order poached eggs on tomatoes spinach with a side of Hollandaise with the potatoes. It's great as its a sleeps Santa Monica vibe and you can walk on the beach afterwards!

We first chose the Georgian by chance back in 2000, as it was the first Santa Monica hotel we found that had a single room for three adults (suite). After our first stay we've never been tempted to look anywhere else since and are booking our 5th stay next year. We've only stayed in suites so can't vouch for the standard rooms, but we've never found an hotel quite like the Georgian - it combines a rare old-fashioned elegance with luxurious, spotless rooms, very, very friendly staff, first-class service and a location that simply can't be beaten - the biggest and most magnificent swimming pool in the world is across the street, and cafes, restaurants and shops a couple of minutes walk away. We always try to book an ocean facing room, but if you don't, watching the sunset from the terrace over a cocktail or two is just as wonderful. Just one warning - if you like variety, be careful if you stay at the Georgian - once you have, you won't want to stay anywhere else !
