The Georgian Hotel


When the Georgian Hotel opened its doors in Santa Monica in 1933, it quickly became a rendezvous spot for stars of the silver screen, including lovers Clark Gable and Carole Lombard.

The Georgian Hotel is a favorite of celebrities and locals.

The notorious Bugsy Siegel and comedian Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle had martinis and enjoyed jazz on the oceanfront veranda (this although the hotel opened during prohibition).

Today, the Red Griffin room in the hotel's basement - the site of the prohibition-era speakeasy  -  is said to be haunted. I've never seen a ghost here, but the rumors do add a bit of spice to the Georgian Hotel's allure.

Today the Georgian continues to attract Hollywood's elite - including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Academy Award-winning actor Robert DeNiro, and director Oliver Stone, all of whom have been spotted at power breakfasts or enjoying sunset cocktails on the hotel's veranda.
