I stayed at the Georgian for 3 nights with my 15 year old son. The rooms were roomy and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was very cute and looked like it had just been redone. However, the bathrooms are rather small and could really use a towel bar and/or shelf. (The bathroom door lock had been painted over, so it did not lock...this freaked out my son, but he got used to it.) It is an old building with a lot of character. (The sink drained slow, but I did not complain to management...room 505 guys, if you care to fix it.) The ambiance is sort of early Hollywood deco-ish. The beds and room were very comfy. Flat screen TV, which we surprisingly (because I was with a teen ) never even turned on as there was too much good stuff around to spend any time in the room.
The service was excellent. I felt pampered by the front desk, valet and wait staff. A friend who visited me said she could not get over how friendly and "at your service" the staff was. We had breakfast on the lovely front porch overlooking Ocean Blvd. and the ocean. The heaters made this very pleasant, even on a cool morning. The food was good, too...though a little bit pricey as you might expect...but certainly worth it when you consider the view and ambiance. I was surprised more people weren't taking advantage of the setting...breakfast (early on a Sat. morning) was not crowded at all. (Had I been a local, it's the type of place I'd go to with girlfriends for a special get together...what a great way to spend a morning.)
My son felt like royalty staying at such a lovely hotel in such a swank location. The Promenade and Santa Monica Pier were only a couple blocks away. Walking along the beach to Venice takes about an hour and the hotel is right on a bus route. It was a perfect location and a beautiful hotel. I used the hotel valet, but my friend found $10 a day parking practically right next door...at it was only $5 on a Sat.)
