Santa Monica’s First and Only Luxury Lifestyle Hotel

Santa Monica Proper introduces a looser kind of luxury to Santa Monica. Ideally located within walking distance to the beach, our 267 rooms and suites are designed to harness the natural light and ocean breezes, reflecting the local coastline’s organic tones and textures. Enjoy exclusive access to the Westside’s only rooftop pool deck, featuring a Balearic outdoor restaurant, bar, and cabanas—perfect for Pacific sunsets. Embrace wellness at Surya Spa with its Eastern-inspired treatments. Situated in the city’s vibrant heart, our hotel is steps away from boutique shopping, health-conscious cafes, the renowned farmers market, and exquisite dining.

Rooms & Suites

Designed by Kelly Wearstler, each room at Santa Monica Proper captures the essence of local history and landscape. Catering to the modern luxury traveler, our rooms feature signature Proper beds, bespoke furniture, and top-tier amenities, including premium WiFi and Apple TV. Enjoy effortless control with bedside adjustments for blackout shades and lighting. Our curved floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies, and garden terraces bathe each space in California’s abundant natural light.

Eat & Drink

Enjoy panoramic Pacific views at Calabra, our rooftop bistro and lounge. Savor Mediterranean and Californian flavors, paired with biodynamic wines and signature cocktails in an indoor-outdoor setting designed to impress. Or, unwind in Palma, our art-filled lobby lounge, perfect for all-day dining and explore a curated selection of small-batch mezcals and boutique wines by the glass.


Embrace wellness and leisure with our array of amenities designed to satisfy every craving and enhance your stay. Unwind with a rooftop swim and savor ocean-view cocktails, or explore the beach with our ready-to-use boards and bikes. Indulge in Ayurvedic treatments at Surya Spa, practice yoga on our serene Calabra terrace, and stay active in our state-of-the-art fitness center. Relax in our lobby lounge, crafted to feel like a living room. Anything less just wouldn’t be proper.
