I am always searching for hotels to accommodate five people--a tricky venture, but the Georgian fit the bill so nicely. Huge amount of space between the large living area with pull-out sofa and separate bedroom with king bed. Large chaise lounge was used by my 6 year old who loved it. Huge bathroom was accessed by two doors and there were two sinks! Best feature was the hallway leading from the door to the living area. Keurig coffee and tea complimentary in room. The hotel was built in 1933 so if you want brand spanking new and object to quirky things like exposed pipes and an old-fashioned elevator, look elsewhere. We loved the location right across the street from the beach; we walked to fabulous restaurants and the farmers market. The staff was fabulous--from the valet to the front desk to the accommodating souls who heard us wishing for a sweet treat late one night. Managed to find us dessert and served us in the charming restaurant. Would definitely return to the Georgian!

Room Tip: We were on the 8th floor facing the street. I could imagine if you were on a lower floor, you might...

Just spent a most enjoyable night there. The reception was excellent, very helpful, We were offered a free upgrade to a suite. The hotel has the elegance of long gone days, old fashioned yet very comfortable and modernised to present standards.
Will definitely stay there again, and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, choose an ocean facing room, but if not the ones on the sides are very quiet...

The Georgian met all my expectations and then some. Location is great (right across the street from ocean and a park). Staff is fantastic. Architecture is interesting. Price is reasonable. We had a lovely stay.

This hotel is very convenient! Beachfront and walking distance to Santa Monica´s main shopping street, the Promenade. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a 50´s touch. The only con was that my bathroom did not offer much space for storing our toiletries. The rest was great! Very attentive staff! Would stay there again, for sure!!!

For me, it's a no-brainer as this hotel is on the same block as my California office so it's the ideal place for me to choose.
The rates are great, the location phenomenal (none of the rooms actually look forward towards the beach, but the restaurant is on the veranda, so you get to see it the whole time anyway), the service is second to none, the wifi works a dream (even from across the street while skyping!!!!), the food is great and the rooms are like stepping back in time to the glamorous era of the 30's.
Amazingly comfortable beds, very comfortable rooms, showers and bathrooms are truly art deco yet completely modern, and totally welcoming.
What a wonderful hotel. Having stayed here many times in the past 9 months this is the first review I've written about it.
I'll definitely going back.

The Georgian is an architecturally beautiful, art deco hotel with an amazing location and reasonably priced parking (for LA). AMAZING views. Also has a great veranda out front to have coffee on and people watch. Loads of charm and a very friendly staff, especially attentive in the restaurant- I sat and was offered coffee, juice and water immediately by 2 different people. Well maintained rooms, cozy lobby and incredibly clean throughout, seems to have been recently remodeled by the look of the . Reminded me a lot of the hotels along Ocean Drive in Miami Beach!

I have stayed on the Georgian Hotel many times and find it charming, well kept for its age, service oriented and an ideal location. Good value for the cost.
