“The Georgian continues to shine...”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

On this, my third stay at the Georgian Hotel, it continued to please with friendly, efficient service, a stylish very clean room, and the best breakfast in LA, on the veranda overlooking Ocean Blvd. Convenient to everything...Third Street Promenade, the Pier, Main Street retail, etc. A classic hotel that continues to shine.

We loved staying at the Georgian Hotel. Located really close to Santa Monica Pier- so very handy to pick up the Hop On Hop Off Bus. Across the road we hired bikes to ride to Venice Beach and 2 blocks to the mall. I loved the character of the hotel and the staff were very helpful. While the bathrooms were small, you would expect that in an Art Deco Hotel. Loved the old elevator and the lovely verandah to enjoy a drink in the afternoon. Pity the free drinks are only on one afternnoon a week. It is a long way to visit other tourist parts of LA(eg- $70 each way in car to Universal studios) but staying at the beach had its compensations.

This historic hotel has an interesting history and a great location but we found the slow old elevators and our extremely dusty room made for a less than perfect stay. The elevator was broke down for a portion of each of the 6 days we stayed here. They do have a second elevator but it is even slower than the first, very small and the wait was long. I don't mind taking the stairs, but when you are on the 8th floor it is a little too much. I also did not expect the room to have thick layers of dust on every surface and item in the room - not sure what the maid service is doing. You have to use the valet parking service if you arrive with a vehicle and this service was surprisingly prompt and efficient.

This hotel is very close to the pier, excellent restaurants, and shopping. The staff were very helpful with holding luggage, early check-in, and answering questions. This hotel was a bit expensive, but worth it due to the location if you have limited time in the area. While in Santa Monica, be sure to rent a bike and ride on the bike path near the beach.

Looks fantastic and so different from all thebuildngs nearby. Great service from the moment we drove up. Room fantastic - except the view of a wall! Short walk from the Pier and 3rd Street Promenade.

Loved the coffee maker and complimentary goodies in the room. Problem switching on a light was dealt with by housekeeping in minutes.

Just wish the price was a little lower - but this is Santa Monica!!

I love the Art Deco look, the view and the location on the promenade (as I love Santa Monica in general).
There are many nice restaurants and bars nearby (my personal favourite is Sushi Roku)
The staff was very friendly and professional, we felt very much at home.
Sitting on the veranda at sundown with a drink in your hand (cocktail mixing is an area with room for improvement at the Georgian though) gives you a great feel for the Art Deco period in time.
The rooms are really pretty, albeit a little small which didn't seriously bother us though.

Whenever we stay in the L.A. are, we spend at least part of our time staying at the Georgian. If you are into unique style, Art Deco and boutique hotels, go there.
If you are not attracted to the style and look of the Georgian, you might want to check out alternatives. In terms of standard and comfort, you might find better hotels for the same price. I doubt that you will find prettier ones...

Lovely hotel, highly recommended.
