“Average Hotel - over priced compared to other hotels in the area”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

While in Santa Monica we stayed at the Fairmont for 2 nights and 1 night down the street at the Georgian hotel. We wished we simply stayed at the Fairmont the entire vacation. The Georgian is stuffy and drab. We could not adjust to the difference in the level of service from the Fairmont to the Georgian hotel. There was only one front office desk clerk and they were actually snobby and lazy. While the location is a plus, it does not make up for the service or the quaility of the room. The room was dark and small, the windows were small and overall it was simply not very comfortable.

It was quite a let down and we would much rather pay a tad more for the Fairmont quality and style.

Services and attention were fabulous, as was the overall charm, but we both left with a sore back from squishy mattress.

Room Tip: Be sure to snag an ocean front room on a high floor. With the windows open it feels like you are on...

Great hotel in a fantastic location
Hotel has lots of character, staff were really friendly.
Room was nice and clean, size was ok, not massive but why spend time in the room when Santa Monica is so lovely.

I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our fair city as well! Santa Monica is such a beautiful city, and we're lucky to be situated smack in the middle of the best our city has to offer.

It's been a few years [5+] but the location and service received remains a pleasant memory. I was able to acquire my own brand of liquor a block away and it was served daily on the hotel's small veranda, as requested. Breakfast in the basement restaurant was exceptional--fresh Calif fruit+.

The Georgian has maintained a nostalgic charm - it is not an ultra modern hotel interior but rather an extremely well kept piece of history more in keeping with European accommodations. So if you need something new, perfect and modern you may be disappointed. History buffs will be intrigued. The rooms are updated, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny but spotless. There is a full mini bar, free internet, entertainment system. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The restaurant has indoor and veranda seating that was ideal for breakfast. Location is PERFECT - Santa Monica Pier, 3rd St, several restaurants are very close. Only valet parking for $25 per night. The interior and grounds of the hotel are smoke free - guests that smoke are asked to go to an area just beyond the hotel to smoke - not allowed to stand and smoke on the side walk in front of the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
