This hotel has a charm that I haven’t experienced anywhere else I’ve stayed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms lovely and clean and the history of the hotel is captured throughout. We had an ocean view room towards at the front of the hotel which had a great view. It is quite loud being on a main street, especially early in the morning with trucks / drunks, however closing the windows blocked the noise and it didn’t bother us.

The hotel is directly across from the beach and it’s about a short (ten minute) walk to the beach itself and the pier. Third Street Promenade is about the same walking distance as the beach. Overall a perfect location to see the sights and experience Santa Monica.

It is worth noting that the breakfast on the terrace was amazing. It was expensive, even for a hotel, but was worth it.

Downsides, the bathrooms are quite small and water pressure is that of an old hotel but these are definitely outweighed by all the positives. Overall, I would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room on a higher level

After doing a great deal of research of hotels in an area my husband and I have never traveled to before we definitely made the right choice with The Georgian Hotel. It was a perfect location being just outside of LA and Hollywood without the traffic of the city. Upon arrival at the Georgian a bellman greeted us at our car and immediately helped us with luggage. The hotel had a welcoming charm to it. The staff could not have been any more helpful and friendly. I wish we could have taken them with us on the rest of our travels that week. The bedding was amazing! The rooms were somewhat small and the bathroom was tiny but suited us fine for the one night we were there. I would stay here again if traveling in the area in the future.

Dear Robyn H,

Wonderful to know that we made your first trip to Santa Monica a memorable one. I am almost certain, had you invited some of our staff to join you on your travels, you may have had some takers!

We hope to welcome you back some day soon.

Warm Regards,

This hotel was our first stop and we found it very comfortable, the staff were great and dining on the small terrace was lovely at sunset. The meals were great. Traffic was high but it is on a main road.

Room Tip: We had a great ocean view room. Traffic noise was high but Witt the window closed it kept the noise...

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...
