We do not have a formal business center but can provide various executive services including:
San Francisco Proper is conveniently located on Market Street in the center of the city. There are two entrances to the hotel: 1100 Market Street and 45 McAllister street. We recommend you use the 45 McAllister street entrance for your initial arrival.
UBER/LYFT/TAXI: San Francisco International Airport (Code SFO), is approximately 13 miles from the hotel and Oakland International Airport (Code OAK), which is approximately 19 miles from the hotel.The uber/taxi cost for transportation to the hotel is typically $40-50.
BART: The Bay Area Rapid Transport is easy, quick and economical. Better yet, we are directly across 7th street from one of the entrances to the Civic Center station where all lines pass through, making it a great transportation choice to traverse the city or to travel throughout many parts of the greater Bay Area. To find the Civic Center Station, walk out the Market street entrance of the hotel and make a right towards 7th street. You will find the Bart station entrance immediately on the other side of 7th Street.
Walk up to Twin Peaks: In “normal” times, most people drive up to the Twin Peaks, the second highest point in SF (922’), but the one with the best views by far. If they want to get the really good 360 degree views, they have to hike a short trail to the north or south peak overlooks, but basically the heavy lifting is done for them. Unfortunately, there’s not a great way for pedestrians to ascend that doesn’t feel a little dangerous since it involves walking next to traffic. However, the winding road up to this scenic overlook is currently closed to all cars, which makes it the perfect time to do this urban hike, get your heart rate up, and take in this city in all of its glory.
Walk, run, or bike down John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park: It took a while, but finally at the end of April, London Breed closed a large portion of John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park to vehicles. Frankly, we think this should be how it is all of the time, regardless of if we are supposed to stay six feet apart from each other, but for now it does make socially distancing much easier. Live closer to McLaren Park? Shelly Drive is closed there.
Hike Lands End: The Lands End Trail “hike” — it’s very mellow, so it’s more of a walk — is the perfect SF activity for three reasons: 1) It’s an easy way to appreciate how beautiful this place is thanks to views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and coastal terrain; 2) There are tons of only-in-SF hidden treasures, like the rock labyrinth, Mile Rock Lighthouse, and abandoned Octagon House; and 3) It’s an urban hike, which means you get to bask in SF’s natural beauty and get in a “workout” at the same time. While you’re there, check out Sutro Baths, the ruins of an enormous ocean-filled swimming facility destroyed by a fire in 1966 and the USS San Francisco Memorial.
Take a walk to Fort Point: Head to Crissy Field and walk along the promenade by the water until you get to this fort built for the Civil War that overlooks the Golden Gate. It’s a great place to take pics of the bridge, watch surfers narrowly miss jagged rocks and, though you can’t go inside right now, take in a little piece of history while you’re at it. Don’t forget to high-five or high-10 Hoppers Hands when you get there (just make sure you use hand sanitizer before and after). You’ll probably have earned it even more than usual since most of the parking lots in the area are closed, which means it’s much easier to arrive on foot.
Hang out in Dolores Park: While the cynical side of us may have some issues (13 to be exact) with Dolores Park, there’s no denying that this park is beloved for a reason. Abundant sunshine (yes, in San Francisco), fantastic people watching, gorgeous city views, towering palm trees, off-leash areas for dogs to play — and though alcohol technically isn’t allowed, all of those things add up to make it the perfect place to enjoy that aforementioned burrito and a cold beer or three from Woods Cervecería (some rules, like no alcohol in the park) are just meant to be — and are almost always — overlooked.
Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge: This is one of those touristy things to do that’s totally worth it because, well, it’s the Golden Gate Bridge — the most photographed bridge in the world and one that was both the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world when it opened in 1937. What better time to see it than when there’s about a third of the usual traffic? Once you’re on the other side, walk down to Sausalito and get some takeout pizza from Bar Bocce to enjoy by the water before taking the ferry back to SF.
Walk down Lombard Street: Is Lombard Street technically the crookedest street in San Francisco? No, it is not. But the actual crookedest street in Potrero Hill isn’t paved with red brick and lined with perfectly manicured greenery and colorful hydrangeas. Which means THIS is the crookedest street you want to Instagram. Best of all, since everything is pretty much shut down in SF, for the first time ever, you can actually walk up and down it without a parade of cars ruining the view.
Hike to two of the four Andy Goldsworthy installations in the Presidio: Artist Andy Goldsworthy is known for creating sculptures that use natural materials and capture the essence of the place where they were made. The Presidio has four of his installations, the most of any place in North America, and though you can’t see them all right now (two of them are inside buildings near the Main Post that are temporarily closed), you can see Spire, made with 37 Monterey cypress trunks that tower 100 feet into the sky and Wood Line, a literal winding wood line made with eucalyptus branches that will one day return to the earth, which are only a short one mile walk apart from each other.
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.
