The Georgian Hotel
1415 Ocean Avenue
Santa Monica, CA 90401
The Georgian Hotel is an Art Deco
boutique property built in 1933. It is across the street from the Santa
Monica beach, historic Santa Monica Pier with its fun zone, and 3rd
claiming 100% ocean view rooms and the convenience of shopping, nightlife
and superb dining.
For those who are into
stargazing, every time wee've visited Santa Monica and sat at a
sidewalk cafe, we've spotted celebrities coming and going from
shops, or walking along the Promenade. It just takes a little
Back in its heyday, The Georgian Hotel was
Hollywood's best friend. A patient onlooker
could spot Clark Gable savoring a martini or Carole Lombard listening to the
strains of jazz on the ocean-facing veranda. During prohibition, the
hotel was a "speakeasy" for famous celebrities and infamous characters.
The Red Griffin room in the hotel's
basement is reportedly haunted with celebrity ghosts. Their pictures hang on
the red flocked wallpaper walls above the wall-to-wall red leather
banquettes. In addition to offering modern luxury, the hotel retains its
charm with a beautiful front porch to sit as the celebrities once did and
sip martinis or cocktails.
Across the street are towering palm
trees and the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Santa Monica offers Los Angeles'
nearest beach playground where celebrities and tourists find the most hotel
rooms, greatest variety of amenities and superb dining and entertainment,
all possible and preferable by parking the car and walking.
While The Georgian might be
considered a beach hotel since it is across from the beach and
sports ocean views, Santa Monica has several
Beach Hotels and one used to be
pet friendly, but we're not sure if it is anymore.
Le Merigot-A Jw Marriott Beach Hotel And Spa,
Four Diamond Hotel,
is just steps to the beach. Loews Santa Monica is likewise close,
sitting next door to Le Merigot. On the same side of Santa
Monica's Ocean Blvd. as The Georgian, and a bit closer to the Santa
Monica Pier is Best Western Ocean View Hotel.
