Driving by, you can't miss the Georgian: the art deco exterior is aqua, with ornate bronze grillwork and a charming oceanfront veranda. Built in 1933, the hotel retains its retro character with cream walls, vintage tiles, marble floors accented with sea-foam green and silver blue, and individually styled rooms with cherry wood furnishings and gold and silver accents. Popular with visiting Europeans, the hotel's lobby echoes with foreign languages. Sit on the veranda to
best appreciate the beach, ocean, and Santa Monica views or to enjoy breakfast or lunch.
