Posted Apr 8, 2014
Pros: Staff and service
Cons: The front Patio work needs to be completed.

Great experience. Reasonable price, great views. They were working on the patio. When that's complete, it will be a great hang out spot!

Great hotel.Has old world charm with all amenities

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: It's old world charm coupled with the availability of every amenity.
Cons: Very little.Just ensure the current level of service is maintaine.
Location: Hotel is situated opposite Santa Monica Beach and a stone's throw from the Pier and shopping areas.
Extremely positive.We received a friendly welcome with the front desk manager Michael going out of his way to ensure we were able to access our room as soon as possible on our arrival (some five hours prior to normal check in time).Room was everything we wished with all staff particularly courteous and professional.I

Nice, but...

Nice historic Inn, but paid $400 per night and $30 per day parking , and no view except for alley . Not a good value, but neat and well kept up.

Great hotel next to the ocean!

Posted Mar 18, 2014
This hotel was beautiful. They staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has an awesome art deco vibe and we did not find the elevators "scary" at all. Would highly recommend.

Very nice vintage style hotel in a great location

Posted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: same notes as mentioned above......
Cons: since our room faced the ocean, the windows need to be replaced so the noise from the busses and cars are not as noticeable......
Location: you can't improve the location it is a 5 star location
GREAT HOTEL........very good accommodations, great location, pleasant and accommodating staff, and very good food......

Art Deco Excellence!

Posted Mar 2, 2014
I have to imagine The Georgian once was a luxury apartment building. The rooms aren't a box, but large suites with long hallway entries that opens up into a two room suite. The bedroom is separated by oversized french doors and the bathroom is huge and accessible from the bedroom as well as the entry hall. All the art deco touches with modern amenities (and the water pressure rocked!). An added plus was that it's on Ocean Blvd and close to all the best shopping and restaurants (I highly recommend BOA). We won't stay anywhere else.

Beautiful old hotel--charming but with issues

Posted Feb 24, 2014
Pros: Kind staff, charming vintage hotel, location, ocean facing suites on higher floors. Bathroom products (shampoo, etc) very nice and plentiful.
Cons: Windows must be made soundproof. Bathroom doors in older rooms repaired, fans in bathrooms.
This is my third stay at the Georgian. I had no idea the difference between the suites and regular rooms. The queen ocean facing room was a tiny pillbox and I do not believe it was a queen bed--it had to be a full. Bathroom door did not shut, no fan in the bathroom, windows very old and did not block out significant street noise, AC made very loud grinding sound as it kicked in off and on all night. Plus the view was almost entirely obscured by the palm trees right in front of the building. Front desk staff very kind but for the cost per night, no amount of kindliness is going to make it okay. Had I paid half the amount for the room, it would have been a completely different story--my expectations would have been more in line with what I would get. In fact, that is one way the front desk staff could have made my stay and that would be reducing the price of the room. They did give us complimentary breakfast for two. Room service extremely fast. I would stay at the hotel again BUT will only stay in a suite on the 7th or 8th floor, and can only recommend the higher floor ocean facing suites, since those are the rooms I had stayed in previously.

Ton of historical character across from beach

Posted Feb 20, 2014
Pros: proximity to beach and bike trail
Cons: Possibly provide a warning regarding the stair entrance, or increase number of bell hops available to help navigate the stairs.
Location: The beach bike trail. 3rd St Promenade.
Loved the location and charm of this hotel. Of course given that this is a historic building there are some modern conveniences that have to be sacrificed. Slower but beautifully restored elevator and lack of a ramp to the main entrance was tricky for me and my giant luggage.

Beautiful historic Art Deco hotel near the beach

Posted Feb 2, 2014
If you're looking for modern luxury with expansive rooms this might not be the place for you, but if you want an amazing experience of history and classic beauty right in the beach, you owe it to yourself to stay here. It's. It everyday you get to wake up with a view of the Pacific Ocean in a classic 1930s Art Deco hotel. It's my favorite place in the LA basin.
