We began with the premise that every city needs a Proper place to stay. Our hotels and residences offer bold explorations of uncommon luxury, from the elevated, unconventional interiors by Kelly Wearstler, the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative culinary and wellness partners, and the sense of immersion within the local culture.

Our one-of-a-kind-hotels in creative hubs across the country offer a looser kind of luxury, with the top-notch service and world-class amenities you’ve come to expect, minus the pretension. Anything less wouldn’t be Proper.
