The upper-middle-range Georgian Hotel is a picturesque Art Deco boutique hotel with a commanding view of Santa Monica Beach (located just across Ocean Avenue). Along with easy beach access, shops and restaurants abound -- and it's five minutes to 3rd Street Promenade. There are 56 rooms and 26 suites, and each is elegantly decorated, though only some have ocean views. Property features are few, the highlight is Veranda restaurant, with porch seating and a full bar -- it's popular with locals. Otherwise, a small fitness center and business center are the only public areas. Expect to pay extra for valet parking. If a pool is a requirement, check rates down the street at JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot, which has beach access but no beach view.

Many travelers to Los Angeles are looking for a dose of nostalgia — a magical bygone era that evokes Tinseltown’s golden days, old-timey roadside diners (soda fountains, included), and dimly-lit watering holes where vinyl records spin. Even better is when you can bring that old-fashioned fun back to your hotel. That’s why we rounded up…
Los Angeles is infamous for its congested freeways, lack of adequate public transport, and (subsequently) walking-adverse residents. I lived in L.A. for nearly 10 years before I learned that there was a small network of underground trains rumbling underneath our roads. Barely any of my friends had bikes, and no one walked longer than a…
Summertime will soon be upon us — this week has already seen highs of 82 degrees in NYC! — and we can’t wait for long days spent strolling along the boardwalk. From Atlantic City to Santa Cruz, beach bums will strut their stuff down those sandy pathways, either taking in the views or letting loose…
If you’re like us, you’re ready for this freezing weather — courtesy of the polar vortex — to be over. In fact, you’ve been ready for weeks now. And though the groundhog may not have predicted a quick return to warm weather, that hasn’t stopped cities across the U.S. from making plans to usher in…

Oyster Hotel Review
The Georgian Hotel
An Art Deco boutique hotel landmark
A fully restored classic with charm, history, and Art Deco accents, the 84-room Georgian Hotel once hosted the likes of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. The mobster Bugsy Siegel held court in the basement speakeasy (now closed to the public, except for private parties). After serving as a retirement home for many years, the 1933 landmark reopened as a hotel in 1993. Guests (a mix of families and couples) enjoy great views of the sea from its popular Veranda restaurant. Inside, the dining area is contemporary with gray walls and a white fireplace, plus there's a cute bar tucked in the corner.
On Ocean Avenue, across the street from Santa Monica Beach
The Georgian Hotel sits on the edge of downtown Santa Monica, directly opposite the bluffs overlooking the beach. Along Palisades Park's jogging path on the west side of Ocean Avenue, locals run, walk dogs, and do boot-camp exercises with personal trainers. Two blocks away is the Third Street Promenade, a pedestrian-only outdoor mall with shops, a movie theater, and national chain restaurants. Also nearby (10 minutes by car) is Venice Beach, popular with tourists because of its cafes and restaurants on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Elegant rooms and suites with thoughtful decor and some ocean views
At about 250 square feet, the Standard Rooms (with either two queen beds, one queen bed, or one king bed) are on the small side, but are elegantly decorated with patterned carpet, framed photographs, and white crown molding. A few of these room types have ocean views, but most overlook Santa Monica. Suites are far more spacious at almost 550 square feet; some have a private bedroom enclosed with a door while others just have draperies between the living and sleeping spaces. Decor is similar to the Standard Rooms, plus the addition of elegant chaise loungers and armchairs. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, a refrigerated minibar, coffeemaker, safe, and flat-screen TV. Bathrooms can feature blue or black-and-white tiles, plus shower/tub combos and toiletries.
Veranda restaurant, small bar, and free Wi-Fi
Features are few at this historic boutique hotel, and most guests are happy with the easy beach access and walkable location. The star feature is Veranda restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service. Seating is either indoors in the contemporary dining room, or outside on the expansive, covered front porch with views of the beach across the street. The menu offers American favorites, and it's a hit with locals and guests. A small lobby bar provides wine and cocktails. There's also a small fitness center and business center, both open 24 hours. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. Valet parking incurs a fee. Dog-friendly rooms are available.
