Proper has re-imagined the building’s vintage basketball court as a fantastical 1,313 square-foot 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath suite, with double-height ceilings, living and dining areas, and epic city views.
Proper rest is paramount. Our top-of-the-line beds are dressed with crisp Fili D’Oro sheets, hypo-allergenic pillows and duvets, and custom-designed throws.
Handsome baths, influenced by Moroccan interiors and clad with over a hundred hand-glazed artisanal tiles, are appointed with stonework vanities, walk-in showers, custom robes and Aesop amenities.
Our rooms feature French-inspired glass overhead lighting, rattan sconces, European-inspired settees and armchairs, marble tables, and abstract paintings by Los Angeles artist Jason Trotter.
The indoor swimming pool from the building’s YWCA past is re-imagined as the star of this one-of-a-kind Pool Suite. Designed with an open space for living and dining, the 2,507-square-foot suite features a separate bedroom with en suite bath, kitchenette, and inspired mix of vintage and custom furnishings throughout, including an exceptional mural by local artist Ben Medansky.
Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
