“Excellent choice for Santa Monica”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

A little on the expensive side, but I really enjoyed my stay at the Georgian Hotel. The staff are extremely professional and respond instantly to any of your needs. They even offered to fill our cooler with ice as we were leaving. The decor was good, we had a view of the beach from the room and the location was perfect. The room was not huge but it was a decent size, the bathroom was okay, although the shower wasn't the best, - it kind of dribbled instead of sprayed. That is actually the only complaint I had. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning system was not too loud so we slept well. I would definitely return.

I selected this hotel because of their reviews on here and their location. It came through - service was great, the rooms were really clean and the view of the ocean was unreal.

The charm of this place is a real bonus and isn't like other chains. I think they have done a great job in keeping it up to date and didn't really see some of the areas that need updating that the other reviewers noted.

It's in a great location with respect to the local shops and restaurants, the pier, etc. I would go back.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view. That's why you're there!

Lovely place, with a good location right by the beach and boardwalk. Some parts of the hotel could do with a little bit of an upgrade but in many ways it adds to the traditional feel of the place. The staff are all good, occasionally a couple of minor communication breakdowns but nothing too major...room was smallish and bed wasn't hugely comfortable. Overall good stay though.

I defy you to find a more dedicated customer focused staff! They are friendly, helpful and always there to assist when needed.
The beach is across the street, walking distance to everything, they provide you with directions and recommendations for restaurants etc. and the beds are so comfortable!
It is an older hotel, very clean, and I would prefer an older hotel with dedicated staff, cleanliness and great people watching patio for drink or meal than a newer hotel with poor service.You are made to feel welcome immediately and the art decor, older elevator etc. is a fun change.I cannot stress about this location, you can walk to almost everything-excellent restaurants walking distance, huge shopping mall, smaller shops, steps to the Pier, etc. You can cycle down to Venice Beach - they will tell you the bike rental options nearby. The front desk is so on top of everything they advised us on checkout of traffic delay and better driving option for us to continue on our trip to Laguna Beach.

Room Tip: Whatever your specific needs are, tell the staff, they will strive to meet your needs. I stayed in a...

My wife and I stayed for three days in this charming romantic and nostalgic hotel - not nearly long enough. It was like stepping back in time to a more colourful era. The hotel - one of the oldest in Santa Monica - goes back to the 30's and hosted many famous celebrities from that time. Well located on the beach , a short stroll from the historic pier and shopping precinct and where you can sit on the balcony sipping a sunset cocktail and imagining times past.
The staff and management were also fantastic and obliging - our room was superb with views over the magnificent park/ocean and Pier..
Whilst there a visit to Bubba Gumps on the Pier is also a memorable and fun experience.
A fantastic stay we will definitely return when again visiting Santa Monica.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean facing room on the upper levels

For our last day in US we wanted a nice hotel by the beach. We chose The Georgian hotel because of the good reviews. It comes at a very high price. We ended up paying 300$ for the night which is quite steep for a hotel that does not offer a pool and no breakfast included.

Anyway, the staff were friendly although we had limited interactions being out all the time. The reception person did the effort to offer us the room as soon as possible which was nice.

The room is spacious while the bathroom give you the feeling of a 1940s. As any expensive hotel don't expect free water in the room. Thanks though for the free internet which is available everywhere.

Although is a nice hotel I wouldn't stay there again. Not because it's not good but mainly because I think it targets another age group, >40s.

Dear DragoJ,

Thank you for spending time with us here at The Georgian Hotel and enjoying our mixture of "old & new". We do hope that you may reconsider returning, I cannot provide a pool on property, however there are some that are close, and the Pacific Ocean is just across the street and breakfast is always an option.

Warm Regards,

Georgian hotel is an historic hotel option in santa monica. The hotel is very nice, clean and the service is high end. Remarkable the sunday brunch and the lovely patio overlooking ocean avenue and the ocean. Try the homemade burger, it's fantastic, very tasty!
