“Hey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Relive the glitz and glamour of...... indeed Old-Hollywood heyday...Maybe, ‘and maybe once was a Haven for big name celebrities’, apparently looking to unwind, however that was long time ago and hotel is still living out of the old glory. In reality hotel is an old building and have no pool, no gym and old scary lift it may be part of glitz and glamour? Yes it is renovated, clean and tidy but in my opinion it is totally overrated and far much too expensive for what it is. The staff is friendly and helpful yes,, the breakfast is just ordinary and if you won’t a “good coffee “ you will be charge. We had no view and for that I was told I have to pay more. Hey but if you want to relive the glitz and glamour then this place is for you....

Dear Teresa_Katarznya,

Thank you for sharing your experience at The Georgian Hotel. Most certainly, we are recognized as a "Historical Landmark" in Santa Monica and a " "Historical Hotel of America". This is something to be celebrated as we maintain the original charm of The Georgian, while keeping up with the times.

Correct, we do not have a pool - the Pacific Ocean was at your finger-tips. Unfortunately, you were not aware of our complimentary fitness center. Also, for avid walkers - Palisades Park is steps away from the hotel and a pleasant walking / running experience. Coffee is also provided complimentary in your guest room.

Happy to know that you enjoyed the services that our employees pride themselves on providing.

Kind Regards,

Laura W.

Stayed here for one night in April 2013 - LOVE this place. Great location in the middle of Ocean Drive, close to shops and bars.
Eating breakfast on the porch in the morning was lovely, service was spot on at all levels.

We just completed our third stay at the Georgian. I love this hotel. I get happy just driving up to it, and seeing people sitting outside on the beautiful veranda, eating and drinking. The location is fantastic, as all have attested here, the staff is great. We had a suite, as our son was with us. Previously, we had stayed in a single room, since it was just the two of us. Those rooms are on the small side, but this is Santa Monica, on the beach. You're not going to be in the room anyway. Since the last time we were here, a new restaurant has moved in next door, the Water Grille. Amazing. But there are a lot of great restaurants up and down Ocean Avenue. If you are staying in Santa Monica, this is the place! .

Room Tip: Be aware that "ocean view" is a liberally construed term. You may get an ocean view if you...

We were extremely pleased with this historic hotel about 2 blocks from the Santa Monica pier. Our suite was perfect for our stay and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking Ocean avenue was a real treat. If you are looking for a smaller hotel with a personal touch this hotel is perfect

I stayed at the Georgian last April. The location is amazing. It's about a 5 minute walk to the pier and beach, and there's a large outdoor shopping mall two blocks away. The art deco style and history surrounding the Georgian gives it a personality that the other hotels in the area can't match. The price is also reasonable compared to the surrounding hotels. The valet only parking can be a bit of a pain, but that just seems to be the way things work in most Santa Monica hotels. The staff is super friendly and helpful. (My girlfriend dropped a ring down the sink drain, and they had a plumber up to our room within 10 minutes to get it out.) The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfy. My girlfriend like the soaps and shampoo in the bathroom so much, that she has been ordering it now at home. The AC worked well, which isn't always the case in older hotels. We tried breakfast on the Veranda one of our mornings, and it was great. The food was tasty, and the view was even better. The heaters on the deck was a nice touch on a chilly morning. The Georgian is a great choice if you're looking for that quintessential Santa Monica experience.

I stayed here for two nights. We got a connecting room, so it felt larger than it would have been otherwise. The view was great and the staff was friendly. We ate breakfast on the veranda and it was good too. It's right around the corner from 3rd St Promenade and near the Santa Monica Pier. For being build in 1933, it's in great shape and a lot of the decor is the same.

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger
