“Awesome Experience!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were in LA for a short family vacation and I splurged on the Georgian Hotel. It was totally worth it! The service was friendly and helpful, the hotel was not only clean but I loved the Art Deco style and the historic photos in the lobby. Our 8th floor room faced north toward Malibu - I couldn't have asked for a better view! We had breakfast on the Veranda the next morning and it was great - the heaters made it comfortable and the location made for great scenery and people watching. The hotel location couldn't be better, right across the street from Palisades Park, the beach, and the pier. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: You don't need an ocean view room to have a great view. Facing north was wonderful. Also, if y...

We stayed here 3 nights on a stop to South Pacific. Absolutely fell in love with this hotel! We have stayed in many hotels around the world but this is probably my favorite for many reasons. It is gorgeous and unique and our room & bed extremely comfortable! Comfy bed is huge plus. The room & hotel was immaculate. Plenty of room ammenities. Our small bathroom was so tastefully done and plenty of new fluffy towels daily. This hotel is very old and very tastefully updated while maintaining the vintage look. There was big fresh florals with Christmas greens. I love how intimate this hotel is. For an 8 floor hotel, it felt very intimate. The hotel history was fascinating for us. The staff are all fabulous and we were treated most graciously from all we encountered - from the desk staff, the maid, our valet and doormen and bartender. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. The veranda has a perfect view of the ocean & beach and we watched the sunset each night over cocktails. I loved that the maid turned down our bed at night, opened our big window in the morning and there was plenty of fresh air throughout, as this old hotel is well ventilated - that can be hard to find in older hotels. Our room had a quiet ceiling fan over our bed, plus good air condiitioning and heat on demand. Another hard to find plus in older hotels. The food we had was perfect from the appetizers to the gorgeous breakfast. Have the french toast souffle with fruit. The dining area just adorable. We had a blast here.

Room Tip: An added plus was at least 5 very nice eating spots within walking distance. We had a car but never...

We had a really enjoyable stay at The Georgian in Santa Monica. Located in a great spot across the road from the beach and two streets away from Third Street Promenade shopping/cafe precinct. The service was friendly and efficient. This older hotel has charm, and has been decorated with a modern touch. The room we had was spacious and had very comfortable beds. The downstairs foyer has a lovely restaurant with verandah and the French Toast Souffle is amazing!!! I would definitely recommend this hotel if you enjoy staying in hotels with character and charm.

It was great to have an oceanview suite and be close to everything that we wanted to do. This is an old hotel, but charming actually. Room was clean. For the price, there should be free water bottles in the room and we shouldn't have to request more towels each day when they should know there are 4 in the room, but overall, we enjoyed our stay. Restaurant downstairs was delicious (breakfast)!

The hotel is situated close to Santa Monica Beach and has a nice cafe/restaurant outside the entrance. It´s exterior color is special and easy to recognize and it is a classic art deco style hotel. They have also kept the interior design, but it is starting to become a little bit worn out. The service is not top notch either.

Good location, not great as it really isn't beachside, and those rooms are good enough but not extraordinary for the almost $300 for a mid week in December. For my $300 there wasn't a free bottle of water anywhere in the room, and the front desk sent me around the corner to the liquor store for water since they had run out behind the front desk.

While the hotel is in a perfect location - walking distance to great restaurants, the Promenade, the beach, the Pier, etc., the room and services were just ok (nothing to brag about). The room had a bit of charm however it was dated and not very comfortable. Getting work done on a little table shared with an lamp, coffee maker and coffee stuff was not easy at all (although I'm sure most visitors are not here on business as I was). Exterior noise was clearly heard inside the room, especially in the early morning hours. I would recommend a room facing the ocean if possible as mine was on the backside... it's amazing how loud a garbage truck can be and I swear construction started rather early as well. I would agree with another review that the pillows were not comfortable (got a better one from the closet).

Room Tip: Rooms at the back pick up a lot of noise from the alley, try and get an ocean front room.

Green Features: Did appreciate the dispensers for lotion, shampoo, body wash.
