Travel + Leisure: World’s Best Awards 2023

The results are in! We’re thrilled to announce that San Francisco Proper has been voted the #1 hotel in San Francisco in Travel + Leisure’s prestigious 2023 World’s Best Awards! 

“Opened in 2017, San Francisco Proper is the epitome of style — many details inside the 131-room refurbished flatiron building were overseen by designer extraordinaire Kelly Wearstler, and no matter where you turn, her unbelievable skill at overlapping textures, patterns, colors, and shapes makes for a visual feast. Guests love the double-height lobby lounge, where mismatched, bohemian-ish furnishings and eclectic art make it feel more like your hip auntie’s sprawling living room. Rooms are just as stunning, with Wearstler-designed wallpapers that pop, and there are swoon-worthy dining venues on site, too. We’re partial to rooftop bar and restaurant Charmaine, where you can order a spritz and a burger to go with your views of the Golden City. Should you need help, one reader expects you’ll get exactly what you need from the “phenomenal” staff.” 

Not only did San Francisco Proper secure the top spot in SF, but every Proper Hotel emerged victorious in Travel + Leisure’s 2023 World’s Best Awards! Santa Monica Proper, Downtown L.A.
