Iconic Santa Monica hotel, The Georgian, is re-launching in January 2023.
Located on Ocean Avenue perched above the Santa Monica waterfront, The Georgian has been a fixture of the Southern California coastline since it first opened in 1933. From Charlie Chaplin and Clark Gable eto Marilyn Monroe and First Mother Rose Kennedy, The Georgian has been home to Hollywood guests and world class icons during its lifetime.
The Georgian will re-open with a restoration of 84 guest rooms and 28 suites, alongside new and refreshed offerings including the famous ocean-view Sunset Terrace, Dining Room, and Sunset Bar. In addition to The Library and gymnasium, The Georgian will also be home to two private meeting and dining spaces, The Gallery and The Writer’s Room.
The Gallery will showcase an evolving curation of work by international artists on a quarterly basis. Additional details around the food and beverage program are expected over the coming months.
Jonathan Blanchard, Founder and CEO at BLVD shares, “I had passed by The Georgian many times before stepping foot inside the architecturally stunning property for the first time 13 years ago. I could see The Georgian had such a striking presence and charm, she just needed to be brought back to her full potential. We are so thankful to have such a wonderful group of passionate and inspired visionaries and partners working to give The Georgian what she has deserved for decades.”
The turquoise Period Revival-meets-Art Deco monument offers a rare glimpse into Old Hollywood and golden-age Californian history. Refining the hotel’s vibe for a new era and new wave of guest, the project is being approached as a historically-inspired restoration by London and Los Angeles-based boutique interior architecture and design firm, Fettle.
Nicolo Rusconi, Co-Founder and President at BLVD explains, “The story of Santa Monica’s First Lady is one filled with magic, intrigue, sophistication, and quite certainly, a touch of debauchery. Our vision is that each one of those elements will coalesce with contemporary California culture to once again make The Georgian California’s crown jewel. And we’re honored to be a part of such an inspired and passionate community as Santa Monica.”
Thoughtful materials and an elaborate art program will combine to create a series of spaces which brings a new chapter to The Georgian for generations to come. Interiors including fully custom Art Deco furniture, ornate lighting and rare imported Italian marble. The Sunset Bar’s Havana Deco-inspired floor pattern set an architecturally striking stage for a very modern set of operations and service standards.
The re-imagined property will once again be a Santa Monica beacon for global jet setters and local tastemakers. From legendary sunset views to her rich enigmatic history, The Georgian will be LA’s hottest 2023 destination.
