Santa Monica Proper marries the elevated design of Kelly Wearstler with a 1920’s era- landmark building and new contemporary architecture. 267 guest rooms and suites, many with terraces, embody the relaxed sophistication of the California lifestyle, with interiors inspired by the colors and textures of the neighboring coastline. Take in the panoramic views from the only rooftop pool deck in Santa Monica, choose from our two dining options, indulge in a treatment in the first-ever Surya Ayurvedic Hotel Spa, or take advantage of over 24,000 square feet of high-design meeting and event spaces. For the first luxury urban resort to open in Santa Monica in over a decade, anything less just wouldn’t be Proper.
