Historic hotel offering seafront splendor and city convenience
Looking out upon the Pacific Ocean, the Georgian Hotel Santa Monica offers stylish and superior accommodation in the Los Angeles area.
Located on Santa Monicas Ocean Avenue, the 4-star property is just a 20 minute drive from Los Angeles International Airport. Thanks to its seafront position, away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown L.A., the establishment is an ideal destination for those needing to commute into the city, or those looking for the perfect coastal getaway.
The property features 84 guestrooms and suites, all of which are designed to offer comfort and relaxation, as well as convenience. Each room features a private en-suite bathroom, decorated with unique ceramic tiles, and offering designer toiletries and bathrobes.
Bedrooms feature an LCD television with cable channels, a clock radio with MP3/iPod connector, pay-per-view movies, and games. A DVD player is available on request. A full size work desk is ideal for those needing to complete some work or those looking to write home. Additional features include direct dial multiline telephone, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, iron and board, hairdryer, and in-room safe. Air-conditioning is included as standard, offering a respite from the beating Californian sun.
Guest suites include a number of additional extras, including chaise longue and sleeper sofa.
The Veranda Restaurant offers guests an in-house dining option. A traditional or continental breakfast is served in the morning, whilst the lunchtime menu features light bites and Californian coastal cuisine. A Tapas menu is served during evenings, offering a range of Mediterranean dishes. Any of these can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the verandah porch which overlooks the ocean.
The hotels location makes it ideal for tourists visiting this part of Southern California. The Georgian Hotel Santa Monica is somewhat of a tourist attraction itself, having seen plenty of celebrities pass through its doors since opening in 1933. Known by some as the First Lady of Santa Monica, the property is unique in its Art Deco style and was one of the first skyscrapers to be built in the area.
Most people do not visit the area just for the hotel though. With golden sands and picturesque ocean waters on the doorsteps, the city is ideal for seaside visitors. The beaches of the Santa Monica State Beach Park offer a host of attractions, from simple sunbathing to exhilarating water-sports.
The world-famous Santa Monica Pier is just a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Here guests can enjoy walking out above the Pacific Waters, riding the rollercoaster and Ferris wheel at Pacific Park, visit the aquarium, or even enjoy a spot of angling from the pier. The Santa Monica Looff Hippodrome is a registered historic landmark and well worth the visit. Whilst it may not be as popular as during its heydays in the early 20th Century, restoration projects have made the pier a must-see once again.
The Georgian Hotel Santa Monica also makes for a convenient stopping point for those that are heading up the historic Pacific Coast Highway towards San Francisco, or those looking to spend a day in Los Angeles itself.
