Proper Hospitality builds and operates hotels, resorts and residences that serve as vibrant hubs for locals and visitors alike. Always the good neighbor, we connect with and support the communities around us, extending the same gracious hospitality to our neighbors as we do to our guests, employees and partners. Proper Giving is a company-wide initiative that formally aligns each of our properties and people with local causes that need our help the most.
Our mission is to donate 1% of our time, hotel space, and management fees from every Proper Hospitality-managed property towards the betterment of their surrounding communities. By offering up human, physical and financial resources to those that need it, we engage all components of our business in positive social action while bringing tangible, long term benefits to the neighborhoods we live in. Proper Giving is more than a foundation. It’s the embodiment of our values as a company and an enduring effort from a growing group of likeminded people that live simply, explore often, consume mindfully, love passionately and give fully.
In 2021 we are focusing our Proper Giving initiatives around organizations working to fight homelessness in our Proper Cities. With your stay across all our hotels, you are helping support the following organizations:
Larkin Street Youth Services
Caritas of Austin
Mobile Loaves & Fishes
Los Angeles House of Ruth
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.
