Reviewed 25 May 2014

Stopped here for 2 nights whislt on a trip to the US for the mrs's 40th birthday. We chose this hotel as it looked a bit different, and were absolutely delghted with the choice. Hotel is in a great location, room was a good size, well equipped and spotlessly clean, and all staff were extremely helpful and courteous from the minute we arrived till we checked out. The a la carte breakfast was delicious and plentiful and they went out of their way to ensure it was just how we wanted it They also let us leave the car in the carpark for several hours after we had checked out, at no extra cost. This will definitely be our first choice when we return to SM. Rich n Ju, UK

Room Tip: Ask for a High floor, sea view for a quiet room with great views.

My friend and I had originally booked into the Georgian hotel for 2 nights . But it turned out we were not able to stay with friends as planned.
The Georgian staff were so helpful and were able to extend our stay with them till the end of the week.
Not only that they gave us a very fair deal for the extra four nights.

From day one of our stay ,the staff and all at the front desk were wonderful . Every time we returned from a trip out,the door staff welcomed us back ,as did the front desk.

We had breakfasts at the hotel and a couple of light lunches.All were presented nicely and very
good fresh food,
The hotel was good enough to also book us a car and driver on request .
Ask for:.Steven Gallardo . Wow Very knowledgeable gentlemen . Good safe driver and very punctual . If any one is staying at this Hotel ask for him .Very good and charming as well.!

Over all I would highly recommend staying at the Georgian it is on the ocean front on Santa Monica.Shops galore on 3rd st just around the corner. Great location.
At the time of our stay ,work was being done on the front porch so we could not have coffee out side but that did not detract from our enjoyment of staying at the hotel.

Give it a try ! We will most defiantly be coming back to stay at the Georgian!
Well done staff and management for giving a 100% to your guests.!
Thank you for a great stay.

My 10 year old daughter and I will never forget this trip due to the beautiful Georgian Hotel. It is worth every cent. Our view was breathtaking. At least 3x a week I go back and look at the pictures. The staff was outstanding. My daughter pointed out a framed poster she liked. The next morning we had a card from the staff welcoming my daughter and a copy of the poster. My daughter got ill and we had to go to urgent care. The hotel sent a towncar service to pick us up. I highly recommend using him (I wish I still had his card!). When we returned from urgent care my daughter threw up in the lobby. The staff was so kind to her and didn't make her feel bad. Every time we walked into the hotel we were greeting with a genuine hello and smile. The location couldn't be better. We will not stay at any other place but the Georgian when we return to Santa Monica.

Room Tip: Pay the extra money to stay in a king size ocean view suite on the 7th or 8th floor.

Very atmospheric, top quality hotel, with marvellous staff. Our ocean view corner suite had everything - great furnishings, separate sitting room, great bed, super views. Room service breakfast was very very good - fruit, oatmeal, good coffee. To find an hotel in the US that queries whether we meant to add an extra tip on top of their inclusive breakfast service charge (which we did) shows real attention to detail. Leave a "Do Not Disturb" on the door - housekeeping are a bit enthusiastic if you don't. One minor point - the air vent in our bathroom seemed to be connected to another room - so you could hear things you don't want to hear. But the door to the bathroom is solid so we did not hear anything unless actually in there and our nights sleep was one of the best in a hotel anywhere..

We stayed in The Georgian hotel in April and arrived after 24 hours of travel at about 1am. The receptionist had us checked in very quickly and the valet was still available to take our car. The room was beautiful, even though we didnt opt for an ocean view. We still had a slight view of the pier! The hotel itself is in a gorgeous art deco style and the rooms reflect this. The location was amazing and within walking distance to everything in Santa Monica. We stayed here as an anniversary treat and while the hotel was expensive, it was worth it! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to avoid the usual chain hotels and stay somewhere different in an amazing location.

After a 14 hr flight from Melbourne we were told on arrival that our room would not be ready until 3.00pm,, they knew 3 weeks in advance of our arrival, so we walked the City until 2.00 and then our room was ready.
The toilet was blocked in our room and 2 of the staff at the front desk did not care if we were there or not. They were unhelpful to say the least.
The room was comfortable and the restaurant staff were fast and great

Room Tip: pay top dollar

You cannot beat the location of this neat boutique hotel. She's a grand old lady that is well cared for and has beautiful views to the ocean. (Request a beach view. They have a limited number) It has a colorful history. Some of the rooms have signs that say Clark Gable stayed here..etc. It was once an apartment house where Rose Kennedy (the First Mother) had an apartment for the summer season and many LA celebrities visited.
WONDERFUL restaurants within easy walking distance as well as the pier and beach sidewalks. If you are coming to the LA or Pasadena Area then I highly recommend this property.
******* The BREAKFASTS on their covered porch are EXCELLENT!!!!!! We even ran into friends who stayed elsewhere but always eat there when in California so they can have their Eggs Benedict. The staff was helpful and professional.
