“Art Deco on the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Everyone was so friendly and eating out under the covered porch watching passer bys and the beach was wonderfull for drinks or breakfast. It is a cool hotel, updated yet has all the character of a 1930's hotel.

Room Tip: Get a beach view

We stayed at this hotel Sept. 28 & 29, 2012. We really liked this property. You get the old historic feel yet the rooms are updated, clean, and nice. I loved the historic details in the lobby and especially the front porch where we had breakfast and happy hour. Sitting there with a cocktail looking across at the palm trees and sunset was spectacular!! We talked with some locals who were there having drinks and they said it was their favorite place in SM. Front desk clerks and bellmen were friendly and helpful. The room was very nicely furnished, clean, and quiet.
This is a great location for walking to restaurants, the Pier, shopping on the Promenade.

We came for a wedding at another hotel which was too expensive for our budget so after some research online we chose The Georgian which was still close to the event. The staff was excellent from the valet to the front desk to the wait staff at the charming restaurant on the veranda. The room was well appointed and perhaps smaller than many modern hotels but it was very clean and comfortable. It's a beautiful old Art Deco building, therefore many of the features like the elevators and the bathrooms may seem antiquated but if you have any appreciation for history, this is the place for you! I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth the extra cost.

The hotel is beautiful and the size of our suite was perfect. Not to mention the excellent service from staff. I especially want to recognize a valet, Edwin, who assisted me late one evening following a surgical procedure. He brought me soup from his personal locker when the restaurants were closed. Thank you Edwin for your kindness and compassion'

The staff is wonderful; especially want to mention Edwin who went above and beyond to insure our stay was a great experience. Edwin your the best! Arriving late one night and the kitchen was closed and my daughter not feeling well; Edwin warmed a nice bowl of soup; his own soup I might add; for her.

Room Tip: Not all ocean view rooms but the ocean is right outside the front entrance. Rooms are lovely.

The Georgian is full of friendly and helpful staff.
Location is excellent.

We had a B&B package and I was horrified to find that a cappucino was extra at breakfast.
Lifts are antiquated and slow. I dislike showering in the bath!
I would need a good reason to stay again.

Room Tip: Ocean view premium is not worth it

The Georgian Hotel delivers a boutique hotel experience while still providing a lot of the modern conveniences associated with big chain hotels. If you want to experience a taste of the grandeur of the 1920's-- albeit with a 36" LCD screen TV and a well-appointed mini-bar-- this hotel is your place. The staff is friendly and the view is tough to beat (if you do not mind feeling a little vacation guilt while watching the legions of joggers trot up and down Ocean Boulevard). Enjoy!
