“Charming and intimate”
Reviewed 20 July 2007

We stayed 3 nights at the Georgian and did not want to leave! We had an ocean-view room on the 4th floor, but unfortunately we couldn't leave the window open at night because of the street noise. Location is perfect! Staff was exceptional from the valet attendant to the front desk clerk to the housekeeping staff. Our room was a standard queen, and it was definitely on the small side. Breakfast and lunch were really nice on the veranda, and the food was very good. Overall it was reasonable at under $300 a night.

Got to the hotel around 1:30 for my fiance's birthday suprise. Got told my room was not ready but I could wait around until 3:00 and they should have my room ready. Got back around 3:15 and was told my room was still not ready but take a seat it should be any minute now. Around 4:15 was finally taken to my room. Next morning, called the lobby to see if I could check out 30 minutes late (12:30 instead of noon) and was told my room was rented out already so I had to leave. I didn't inquire why I had to wait four hours after check-out the nigh before.

My husband and I stayed over the weekend for a quick little get away and we had a fabulous time! I almost don't want to tell too many people about it, so we can keep our weekend getaway all to ourselves. The staff were all really nice and profesional, the rooms were clean and tastefully decorated and it was a great location for all the Santa Monica attactions. Will definitely be going back!

We stayed here for our anniversary (which is also New year's Eve). Santa Monica is pretty quiet on New Year's (esp. since it was raining.) We chose this hotel not for its amenities (there are few) but for its history. The Georgian was one of the 1st hotels built on Ocean Ave. , and used to be frequented by Hollywood movie stars such as Charlie Chaplin back in the day when Santa Monica was a vacation destination for Hollywood residents. The ambiance is wonderful, and so are the views from the Ocean View rooms. The elevators and lobby let you know how old the building really is, and the bathrooms (before they were redone to be more modern) were super cool as well. You don't stay here for the amenities and large rooms, you stay for the ambiance and history. It's a very CLASSY place.

  • Liked — the great vibe and amazing location
  • Disliked — the food is not fantastic, but not so bad either.

The Georgian Hotel, where my wife and 11 yr old daughter stayed for 2 nights in early July, was probably just what we expected. Great location (right across from the beach, right on Ocean Ave, by pier, 2 blocks from 3rd Street Promenade shopping area) and lots of Art Deco character - though perhaps not as trendy or plush or "boutiquey" as we'd hoped. Rate was $255 for two weekend nights for 2 adults/1 child in queen/queen room. About average for Santa Monica...

We'd previously stayed in Santa Monica at the newer and ritzier Le Merigot and cookie-cutter but comfy Doubletree - both Santa Monica neighbors. Both were a bit less convenient to the 3rd Street Promenade area - but were perhaps more comfortable places to stay, all in all.

Beds were better than the normal Marriott standard - but not super plush like some these days. Room was very plain - but somewhat spacious - with nice ceiling fan (with wireless remote). Bathroom - though fun in its black/white tiled decor - was, as some have noted, tiny. One pedestal sink - with toilet immediately next to it and one narrow glass shelf above. Had to keep most of our toiletries in bedroom...

Our 2nd floor room was easily accessible via the stairway just beyond the front desk. Was on the parking garage side - but had a sliver of ocean view from our room.

Saw or heard no other guests the first two nights of our stay - literally. Strange. Convenience store right around the corner - and restaurants like Sushi Roku are essentially next door.

The Georgian's valets were very speedy and (doubling as bellmen) quite responsive. Parking was $21/night for valet, FYI.

Would certainly stay there again - but also might seek slightly plusher surroundings...

The Hotel was right on the beach and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The terrace at the front of the hotel was great although maybe i would be good to have the br serve a little later than 9pm. The rooms were very clean and well appointed and all in all offered excellent value for money. The air conditioning was a bit erratic however and you had to turn it right down before the fan kicked in!

  • Liked — Staff service
  • Disliked — The fact they had no on site bar or restaurant
