“Great hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a lovely boutique hotel located close to the beach, pier and downtown. We would of had a great sunset except it was cloudy. We could walk all along the beach, the pier and 5 minutes from downtown shopping. the breakfast was wonderful and we could sit outside even in november. I would recommend this hotel .

We arrived in the evening from a long flight so it was great to receive a warm welcome and good service. There were two ladies on the front desk who were very friendly and provided us with a lot of information and maps on the area without us even asking as well as providing an efficient check in. The delivery of bags to the room was prompt and the bell man was also very friendly and helpful with information. This gave us a great first impression of the hotel.
We had chosen an ocean view suite which was a lovely room with a nice view of the beach. We loved the decor in the room and throughout the hotel which gave a nostalgic feel while still having all the modern amenities such as wi fi. The location to the beach, pier and shops was also good.
We had breakfast and drinks on the patio which was relaxing with good food and service. Again the staff were always friendly and made us feel welcome. The signature cocktails were great.
This was the last two nights of a four week trip for us and was a great way to end our holiday before making the long journey home.

Room Tip: The ocean view suite has a separate living room and is a good large size room. The view is great and...

Dear JXXK,

All of our associates send there thanks, we are very proud to know that you enjoyed our service. A "Georgini" on the Veranda, a sunset - I too agree this is a nice way to wrap up a 4 week trip.

Wonderful to know that you enjoyed your suite!

Warm Regards,

I stayed in another hotel during my trip but this was the alternative I considered and I don't think I would have gone far wrong if I had. I ate breakfast here and enjoyed a cocktail or two while watching Santa Monica walk passed, enjoying the weather.
Nice staff, good food, great view.

Los Angeles is one of my least favourite cities -- miles of freeways, strip malls, lousy housing districts, and carrying a high fear factor. All of the (self-declared) beautiful people strutting around makes for interesting people watching but the pretense and ostentatious wealth in parts of the city make it tough to take. The Georgian Hotel is a lovely oasis in the midst of this post-modern congestion. It is an older hotel, nicely restored and very appealing. The rooms and very nicely outfitted and extremely comfortable. The staff are helpful and eager to please. The location is lovely, too -- across the street from Santa Monica beach and a five minute walk to the Santa Monica pier. This, too, is one of LA's few redeeming feature -- a place where folks from across the city gather for a day/evening of community and inexpensive entertainment. The hotel is a tad expensive, but a wonderful break from the sterility of the rest of the city,

The hotel is an art deco beauty, fairly small, fewer than 30 rooms, with a first-class staff.
It is on Ocean Ave., only minutes to a large, clean, well-patrolled, beautiful beach. And a short walk to the Santa Monica Pier.
You are surrounded by some of the best restaurants in L.A. (i.e., Water Grill, Blue Plate Oysterette, Border Grill, Bar Pintxo) and best shopping. If you can, plan to walk the Farmer's Market on Thursdays, just off the 3rd St. Promenade.
The best views are from the sixth floor up, and work a deal that includes valet parking and breakfast. Both can be pricey, and the breakfasts are delicious.
We have been staying at The Georgian off and on for the past 18 years, and it never disappoints.

Room Tip: Recommended: Rooms 701 and 703. Corner suites have spectacular views of the ocean and Santa Monica P...

Dear zadkine,

18 years and counting! Thank you for your loyalty and sharing your tips in finding the value in the packages that we offer. We have the Carol Lombard and Clark Gable suites on the 8th floor, we may have to name one on the 7th after you.

It would be a pleasure to me you on your next visit.

We arrived at the hotel at 7am after a 15 hour flight from Sydney and fully expected to be told that our room wasn't ready.
Instead we were whisked up stairs and then we realised we had been upgraded to a suite. We were delighted especially given that it was the 22nd of December and this hotel was opposite the beach in trendy Santa Monica.

The hotel is 1920's Art Deco so is quite old worldly rather than minimalist trendy.

Our room was massive. We had so much room which we really appreciated.

Breakfast was a delight looking at the view of the ocean from the hotels balcony. Mojitos were also enjoyed at sunset over looking the ocean. Breath taking.

The hotel has free wifi which we discovered after this was a perk as many of the hotels in the USA charge for wifi.

A very good hotel for the reasonable price in a great location.
