A WORLD UNTO ITSELF

Where otherworldly design meets the here and now, a Proper hotel begins with the passionate, compelling vision of Kelly Wearstler. Santa Monica Proper artfully elevates a vintage landmark building with new, contemporary architecture. Essentials include three restaurant-bar destinations, including a first-ever collaboration between the iconic chefs of Sqirl x Contramar. Wellness is placed front-of-mind through a rare partnership with the celebrated founders of Surya Ayurvedic Spa; a fitness center with yoga terrace; and an unparalleled rooftop pool, deck and restaurant-bar with majestic ocean views. Original works by emerging L.A. artists and 16,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces complete the westside’s first destination hotel to debut in more than a decade.

 

Opening this summer. Now accepting reservations from July 2019.

Rooms and Suites

SUN SHELTER

The 271 rooms and suites of Santa Monica Proper reflect the local history and landscape with original design by Kelly Wearstler. Meeting the needs of the modern luxury traveler, each room is well-appointed with specially designed furniture and signature Proper beds dressed with Bellino and Fili D’oro linens. State-of-the-art technology includes Proper App and mobile device room keys and checkout. In addition to curved floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies and garden terraces offer plenty of natural California light.

Eat & Drink

FRESH COLLABORATION

Proper’s signature restaurant, Onda, marks a global collaboration with Jessica Koslow (Sqirl, Silverlake) and Gabriela Camara (Contramar, Cala). These award-winning, tastemaker chefs draw from California and Mexican flavors, techniques and ingredients in the open kitchen, at the bar, and on the table. The art-filled lobby lounge is an intriguing setting for light bites, a deep dive on small-batch mezcals, and boutique wines by the glass. And on the rooftop, the indoor-outdoor bistro and beach-inspired lounge/bar pairs ocean views with contemporary sustainable seafood by Executive Chef Kaleo Adams.

Amenities & Services

EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN

A Proper amenity encourages wellness, satisfies cravings, or is simply on hand to please: A rooftop swim and ocean-view cocktails by the bar. Boards and bikes at the ready for a surf or ride on the beach path. Ayurvedic spa treatments. Yoga on the 2nd floor terrace. A state-of-the-art fitness center. A lobby lounge that’s more like a living room. What you want, precisely when you want it is as easy as texting or using the Proper App.

Surya Spa

RETREAT INTO WELLNESS

Seamlessly integrated into a Proper stay is the 3,000-square-foot Proper x Surya Spa, a flagship collaboration. Following a philosophy that bridges the physical, mental, and spiritual, hotel guests and locals can explore 10,000 years of Indian wellness principles with inroads to wellbeing such as therapeutic massage, steam and oil treatments, cooking, yoga, and meditation. Wildcrafted, plant-based ingredients are blended and created daily for each individual, to relax and rejuvenate.

Meetings & Events

THE PROPER BACKDROP

Santa Monica Proper offers more than 16,000 square feet of Kelly Wearstler designed, flexible space on the westside, including four meeting rooms, ballroom, courtyards and terraces. To top it off, the expansive rooftop pool-deck-restaurant with unforgettable ocean views. The high-end services and hospitality of the Proper events team are personalized with market-driven catering menus for indoor and outdoor meetings, weddings, special events, and private dining with distinction.

Neighborhood

CULTURE & COMMUNITY

The district around 7th and Wilshire is a rising hub of creative energy with upscale conveniences and wellness activities in any direction–and the beach and bike path only blocks away. Walk to the pier, boutique shopping, studios, health-conscious cafes; and eclectic fine dining, as well as the world-class Wednesday Farmers Market. This close to the beach, guests are front-row for rooftop sunsets over the Pacific.

What is Proper?

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 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 the music and the art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
