Santa Monica Proper marries the elevated design of Kelly Wearstler with a 1920’s era- landmark building and new contemporary architecture. 271 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 a trio of dining options, indulge in a treatment in the first-ever Surya Ayurvedic Hotel Spa (opening November), 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.

Fact Sheet
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 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.
