Vogue: The Best Hotels in Los Angeles

We’re so excited to share that Santa Monica Proper is featured in Vogue’s roundup of The Best Hotels in Los Angeles, From Beverly Hills to Santa Monica. 

“Looking for the best hotels in Los Angeles? We all have our moments of West Coast wanderlust—for close to a century, L.A. has been broadcast to the world as the epitome of glamour, from the Hollywood movie stars that live there, to the beaches so beautiful that countless songs have been dedicated to them.

For those who finally want to make that California dream a reality, there are several hotels—from Sunset Boulevard to Santa Monica—that are worth the trip. If you’re seeking a once-in-a-lifetime Los Angeles experience, look no further at the grand dames like the Hotel Bel-Air, while those wanting to experience the famous surf culture should look to the Santa Monica Proper or the Surfrider in Malibu. And don’t rule out West Hollywood, where you’ll never feel more like a movie star than among the billboards of Sunset Boulevard.

The Santa Monica Proper is housed in a 1920s landmark building, but its interiors—created by AD100 designer Kelly Wearstler—are decidedly contemporary: Wearstler adorned the space with geometric yet coastal accents like a reception desk that resembles an abstract seashell and a floor that mimics the top of a beach umbrella. Tobia Scarpa Soriana chairs are positioned throughout, accompanied by local artwork. With its strong structural and design elements, Wearstler kept the color scheme mostly neutral, focusing on browns and creams. There’s a rooftop pool as well as an on-site restaurant, Calabra, which serves Mediterranean and California cuisine with views of the Pacific Ocean.”
