I stayed at The Georgian with my husband and 14 year old daughter for two nights in the middle of July. I chose the hotel because it had the best reviews for Santa Monica on Tripadvisor and was close to the beach, shops and restaurants. I thought the rate was rather expensive for what appeared to be a fairly modest room and my budget couldn't accommodate the extra cost of an ocean view. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. The quality of the hotel and the service provided by the staff were definitely a high point of our trip. The room was available when we arrived at 1400, although we hadn't requested an early check in, and it had a side view of the pier which was a bonus. The room itself was quite spacious although lacking a little in closet space. The bathroom was small but functional and the Aveda products a nice touch. The hotel is clean and well maintained and all the staff I encountered were very polite and attentive. I enjoyed sitting on the Veranda and although the road separates the hotel from the beach the traffic isn't particularly intrusive. On the downside the only parking is by valet and there is an extra charge of $21 per night.
