“Average stay at the Georgian Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We stayed at the Georgian on the last leg on our honeymoon in Santa Monica. From the ouside it looks really cool ane very 1920s which is when it was built. However on stepping inside, the bar/ eating area is really small so I wouldn't choose to eat there. We also had cocktails on the balcony and unfortunately because the hotel is on a main road, the noise of the traffic is quite over bearing, so if you're after a quiet drink, I wouldn't recommend the Georgian.
Our room was OK although a lot smaller than I thought it would be. We stayed in a Standard Queen room. It was comfortable and clean and well insulated in terms of noise from outside and other rooms. I also liked that they turn your cover over at night, leave chocolates and also the weather forecast for the next day! The staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed to ask them about activities and sight seeing. I was slightly disappointed that we didn't get any special treatment because we were on our honeymoon (and I made a point in telling them in the run up to our stay, and when we got there). Overall, it was a comfortable stay and no major complaints however I was expecting a bit more for our money in terms of decor and that the art deco look would be quite full in our bedroom, but it wasn't and our room even felt a bit tatty.

Recently stayed in Santa Monica as part of round the world trip - although we didn't stay at The Georgian we walked past 3 or 4 times a day on our way to and form our hotel. IN the end we started to stop and have a drink on the terrace.

On our last day - we abandoned our own hotel and headed to the Georgian for Breakfast - and can certainly recommend the pancakes! Coffee, OJ and pancakes with a sea view to die for. Next time we visit Santa Monica - we'll definitely be staying here!

A nice hotel
The room was small but the bed was comfortable and it suited our needs
The terrace was a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine and people watch. The staff were friendly and attentive,the only down side was the way the minibar was set up ,it was typical of all hotels but I found this situation to be a little tacky.
Not bad hotel it for the punt we spent it should have been better

The Georgian has the feel of a very efficient, family-run hotel. The staff is energetically-young but remarkably experienced (many have been there several years, unusual in the hotel business, which says much for the Georgian management) and they work hard at helping each other help their guests. Our room was immaculate and quickly maintained each day of our 6-day stay. The location of the hotel overlooking the Pacific close to all the shopping , restaurants and other attractions of Santa Monica, itself a remarkably well-maintained community makes it a great place to leave the rest of the world behind.

Room Tip: Full ocean view on high floor

My husband and I stayed here in on of their Ocean view suites.
Having the separate room was fantastic and the staff were so helpful.

Great location, walk-able distance to shopping, restaurants and the beach.

We decided to layover over in Santa Monica for 3 days on the way home to Washington, DC to see the area and recover from a long Sydney, Australia via Auckland, NZ flight. We selected The Georgian based on its reviews and were not disappointed. We were promptly checked into our room, which was well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The daily maid service was excellent. The Front Desk was extremely helpful in providing restaurant recommendations, but some of the best food we ate was at The Georgian. The sunsets while enjoying a cocktail on the front porch were spectacular. Check-out was easy and error-free. We recommend booking a cab to LAX through the Front Desk because the cab company charges a flat rate. One sight well-worth seeing is the Getty Villa. The Front Desk can provide free tickets. Skip the cab to the Villa and ride the bus, which is easy and takes you along the beach road. If we were to return, we would spend the extra money for a room with an ocean view.

Room Tip: if you can afford to do so, book a room with an ocean view.

Wonderful to hear that you were not disappointed in The Georgian Hotel. You managed to cover all the bases as well as provide additional helpful tips of your own. Mother Nature even cooperated with enhancing your experience at the Veranda Restaurant.
