“Loved it!!!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Spent 4 nights at The Georgian Hotel at the tail end of our California road trip. I chose this hotel based upon Trip Advisor reviews - and I made a great choice!
Initially I had booked a standard double queen room - but due to the fact that I had to change our travel dates and the queen rooms were sold out, all they could offer us for our new dates was the Signature Suite. I really didn't plan on spending that much money on a room, but given the amount of time I had put in researching hotels and the fact that I had chosen The Georgian I figured what the heck, lets live it up a bit! I am so happy that I did! Beautifully appointed room, large, large, large! Room was very clean, the cleaning staff was very very friendly and helpful, turned down the beds each night, brought us fresh buckets of ice each day. All the little touches were there. Yes, we paid for them, but it was nice to see them! We had breakfast each morning at the Veranda Restaurant in the hotel and had a quick dinner the first night we arrived. Food was very good and service was good as well. Hotel was very convenient to the beach and boardwalk. Though the beach was quite a walk to get to! I hadn't realized that you actually have to walk down many steps, go over a walkway which crosses above U.S. 1, and then a really long walk on the sand to get down to the water. Good think I had my inhaler!
Parking at this hotel is valet only, and costs $27 per night. I feel that should be included in the overall cost. Hate it when hotels feel the need to squeeze travelers for parking. Free wi-fi was offered. Walking distance to Third Street Promenade.
Once again as in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, there were a LOT of homeless people on the streets of Santa Monica. It was just very sad to see.

If we are ever in Santa Monica for any reason again we will definitely stay at The Georgian!

Dear Igottatravel_13,

We noticed your stand-up paddle picture ..... have you tried that here in Santa Monica or Marina del Rey? Thank you for enjoying our hospitality and spacious suites. Should you find a reason to return to our shore, please keep in-touch, we have packages that include parking, hopefully you will "Love It" that much more.

Sincerely,

The bell boy greeted us after coming back after a night out with a very friendly "Welcome back" as if we came home. And it genuinly felt like it ... This is what makes The Georgian a perfect place for a lazy stay in Santa Monica!

Georgian Hotel has an unbeatable location in Santa Monica. Minutes to Third Street Promenade and flanked by great restaurants all round. Beach right in front of you.
We used the valet parking on site and service was very prompt. Front desk lady who checked us in was very efficient and sweet.
The Suite room we were allocated has a partial sea view. We had the view of the carpark across but was not too bad. Despite being in a very busy area, could not hear any traffic noise whatsoever.
Bed was a bit too soft for our liking (that's subjective) but the suite was beautiful and sufficient for our family of three (with our teenage daughter). Used the pull out sofa and it worked out fine. Shower pressure was OK, didn't like soap dispensers but no big deal. Wifi speed was great.
One thing that did not go down too well with us was we had bought yogurts and some milk along the way thinking we could use the fridge. Not really. It was a fully stocked fridge and no way to put extra items in there. We had to throw some items away as a result.
Overall interior was a little dated. I think the price was too high for the standard but then again, if we're just paying for location alone, it's possibly justified.

We welcome, communication from guests, prior to arrival, so that we can accommodate personal preferences.

Hope to see you again.

We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon. The location is perfect for anything in Santa Monica.
The check in was simple and the room was nice. The old lifts are quaint, albeit a little bit slow.
We had drinks on the terrace, where the service was lacking and the prices were high.
It's worth staying here for the location alone.

The location of the Georgian hotel is unbeatable. After riding Route 66 it was great to see the Santa Monica Pier from the ocean view room. The sunset is absolutely fabulous. The hotel itself is sophisticated and very clean. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms with ocean view are definitely worth few more bucks.

My husband, son and I stayed here for three nights last week. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We had an ocean view suite and the view was gorgeous. The room was large and very clean and the beds and pillows were comfy -- they even gave us a thick memory foam topper to put on the sleeper sofa to make it even more comfortable for our son! The front desk staff, the restaurant staff, the valets and the bell staff were all very professional and helpful. The location is perfect, close to restaurants and the Santa Monica pier. It was also nice having breakfast on the veranda in the morning. The parking is valet-only, but that was so helpful since the streets are so busy around there. We were just very comfortable and we will definitely stay here again if we return to Santa Monica!

Room Tip: Stay as high as possible to lessen street noise; we were on the 4th floor and it wasn't that bad...
