“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

I have been to USA 3 times now and always wanted to stay here and could never get in. Well i finally got to stay (only for 1 night) but it was just as nice as i had imagined. I had an ocean facing room which was lovely. I could see the Pacific Fair on the pier and the beach. The room isn't overly large but it had everything i needed and was very clean. The bed was one of the best i slept in and the hotel itself was very quiet. The staff were so very friendly and i really enjoyed my stay and would definately go back.

Room Tip: pay the extra for an ocean view.

We've stayed at The Georgian 3-4 times over the past seven years and they do a great job maintaining their property. It really doesn't show a lot of wear and tear even though it's a busy and older hotel. Santa Monica isn't cheap, but you get a lot for your money here. We've stayed at several other SM hotels but we keep coming back to The Georgian although if you're looking for something hip or modern this isn't the place for you - charming is a better description. Tip: eat breakfast, have a drink or something on the veranda - the food is good and it's a great spot to relax and gaze at the ocean (unless there happen to be several buses parked across the street).

Pros: Location is fantastic. Service is great, beds are comfy, clean rooms aren't huge but not too small, either. Price is reasonable for the area. We had a north facing standard King room on the 8th floor that supposedly wasn't a room w/view but it was a fantastic view of the ocean and Malibu coast! Veranda/breakfast is great. Complimentary wifi.

Cons: Bathrooms are small/tight with very little counter space. (I bet we're not the only ones who have accidentally forgotten to put the toilet seat down and some cosmetic dropped in!) Valet is expensive so we park on a street behind the hotel in a public garage since it's close by. Tip: make sure if you park in a public garage it states that you can park overnight. There are steps from the street level up to the veranda and then again from the lobby up to the elevator so if you have difficulty or hate steps it might be aggravating.

Overall, this is an excellent hotel and we'll stay here again, I'm sure.

Room Tip: Higher floors generally mean better view.

This a unique place with fantastic people, especially Mehra, but actually the whole staff. The Georgian must go out of their way to hire and retain highly qualified and personable people. My wife and I had a memorable six days in Santa Monica. We'll miss the Georgian and Mehra.

I was there with my mom to celebrate her 90th birhday and for her to re-visit the hotel where she and my dad spent their honeymoon in 1947. From the minute we drove up, we felt like royalty, and just got better from there. The hotel is a beautiful example of the Art Deco era and was so charming. Loved the veranda where you could sit and have a cocktail while watching the sun set. The rooms were clean, beds were very comfy, and plenty enough room. I was worried about noise because that we were right next to the elevator, but we never heard a thing. The walls are very thick!! Every staff member we came in contact with, from the bellman and valet to the front desk and restaurant servers, was so kind, gracious and welcoming. The frosting on the cake was in honor of her birthday, they gave us a complimentary breakfast (delicious!) and as we were checking out, a poster of the hotel that each staff member signed wishing her happy birthday! Thank you for making it such a memorable birthday for her! Outstanding!

This hotel is a great location- walking distance to lots of attractions. I love the Art Deco style, and the Wednesday evening reception is a nice touch. Some of the room views are not great (right next to the adjacent building, so if you plan on spending a lot of time in your room make sure you ask about it.

Room Tip: Ask what view you're getting- some rooms look into the adjacent building.

After spending the day in Malibu, we retired to out hotel to freshen up and then take a walk on the pier. Splendid location! The valet was a bit rude, but the inside staff was welcoming. Rooms were adequate but windows were really dirty so the ocean view was cloudy. Breakfast in the restaurant was wonderful! Great food and pitch perfect wait staff!!
Guess I would go again but would hope for clean windows the next time!

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side have noise from some kind of huge fan on the roof of the building next door
