I found this hotel on tripadvisor and loved all the positive reviews. I checked out the website, ended up booking it... and couldn't have been happier!! Our room was the "Carol Lombard" suite on the top floor with an ocean view. The views from our many windows (which we could open to enjoy the fresh air!!) were all beautiful: the palm trees, the ocean/beach, the Santa Monica Pier... the location was fabulous. We were in walking distance to the 3rd St Promenade, which made for some great shopping (which we weren't able to do at Rodeo Drive!) and good eating choices, and we even enjoyed the many entertainers lining the sidewalks. The Georgian still has what looks to be the original style elevator and doors and I loved the old fashioned sliding "peep hole" on the door! The decor was very suitable to the style of the hotel and VERY CLEAN!! The bathroom came with bath robes, shampoo/conditioner, qtips, hand lotion, even a food/drink bar (at a rather steep cost though). We needed a few items while there and the housekeepers were very responsive and I loved coming to our room at the end of the day and the curtains were drawn, bed covers pulled down, with chocolate on the nightstand... very comfy! The front desk greeted us everytime we came or left the hotel. Even the valet parking guy, waitress, bartender... were all so willing to help and always with a smile on their face. The veranda out front was a wonderful place to start the day with a cup of coffee or end it with a glass of wine. (We even heard that Arnold Schwarzeneggar and Sylvester Stallone sat out there the day before we arrived.. wish I had seen that!!) Anyway, we ate breakfast in the dining area and I highly recommend the french toast.. .delicious! We had started our trip touring Hollywood and stayed at the Sheraton by Universal Studios... while that was a nice hotel too, once we got to Santa Monica and I saw the Georgian Hotel... I was in love. If I ever find myself back in the area, I will definitely stay there again... maybe in the "Clark Gable" room next time! While I thought everything was excellent, I do have to mark down a little for "sleep quality"... we were a family of four and our son was to sleep on the pull out sofa, but it was not comfortable. He ended up putting sheets on the chaise and sleeping there. The king bed, however, was very comfy...
