“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great location for Santa Monica Place & 3rd St. Promenade shopping, dining, Pacific Park and beach. Nice facilities, clean and well-kept for such an old bldg. Very quick, helpful valets. Front desk staff need some training for consistent customer friendliness for that extra personable touch you get at larger hotel chains. Overall a very nice place.

Room Tip: No ADA ramp on front of historic (old) bldg. Call for arrangements if ADA access needed. Valets will...

This beautiful art deco hotel is in the perfect location overlooking Santa Monica State Beach Park and the ocean and just a short walk to the Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica Place and Main Street.

We stayed here on two separate occasions on this trip and both room types were very clean with comfortable beds and a turndown service provided each night with yummy chocolates. Tea and coffee making facilities were also available. Bathroom supplies included hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cotton balls and buds.

The Georgian staff are the most welcoming, friendly and hospitable of all hotels we have stayed in around Santa Monica especially the teams in valet parking and the restaurant.

Sitting outside at The Veranda restaurant each morning was a great way to start each day, enjoy breakfast and read the complimentary newspaper left at our room door each morning.

Would I stay here again? Absolutely! The Georgian felt like a home away from home.

Stayed here in June 2011 and the only thing which let us down was the weather (June gloom).
The hotel was outstanding, location absolutely perfect, great views over the pier, close to third street promenade!
Rooms were very nice, clean and modern.
Breakfasts were lovely on the terrace looking out to the pacific!!
Would 100% stay here again, we had a fantastic time - what a place!!

1930s hotel, fully modernized except the charming wood-paneled elevators. Not a fancy environment, but very relaxed. Room good size, bathroom old and small, but spotless. Very quiet hotel despite facing Ocean Ave. and seeming to be pretty busy. Free WiFi was OK (ran about 0.9Mps, same as our home DSL). Valet parking (included in our package rate) was great; cars parked next door, unlimited in-and-out. The entire hotel staff was uniformly professional and friendly. The Georgian's real asset is the veranda or porch on the front of the building where we had several meals - brunch, lunch, and dinner. Sitting on Ocean Ave., just across the street from Santa Monica's bluff, with the beach and ocean below, the veranda was a great pleasure. I would certainly return to The Georgian. It has charm that some of the shiny newer hotels on Ocean Ave. probably lack. We were happy to book a side room with only a sliver of a view of the ocean; next time, maybe we'll splurge for the ocean view.

Room Tip: Beach and ocean views on Ocean Ave. side

Beautiful place and very nice and responsive staff. Best breakfast in Santa Monica and great view too. The location cannot be beat - close to all the shopping, SM pier, restaurants and Venice. We loved having breakfast or lunch at the hotel on the veranda, never wanted to go anywhere else. We will be back soon.

This is a throw back hotel big time. If you travel from say....Europe and want to stay in a hotel that doesn't remind you of the hotels that are everyday in your country, do not stay here. Sure, it's on the water but it literally is a model of an old Euro hotel....tiny rooms, turn around bathrooms and everything that would bring back the old country.
This was a one night stay and compared to the usual rates we paid much less and still wonder how you can charge a usual $300 a night room for a 10 x10 nothing of a room? Is it haunted? I have no idea but really, no pool, no....for that matter, anything. Loews right down the street charges about the same but has an entire frills and it's back door puts you on the beach. Go figure

Room Tip: If you are bigger than Danny Devito, don't stay here
