Shinola: Your Ideal Transportation

Shinola: Your Ideal Transportation

Written By: Proper Blog


Whether you’re heading out for a leisurely bike ride around town, or you need to run a quick errand, look no further. San Francisco Proper is proud to offer complimentary, high-end, hand-built bicycles by Shinola when you stay with us. Manufactured at Waterford Precision Cycles in Wisconsin, from US and imported steel, these single-speed bicycles are fitted by hand and tested for quality precision. Detailed craftsmanship is one of the many reasons why we chose to partner with them. Oh yeah, and they are insanely comfortable. Give them a ride the next time you stay with us and you’ll see why we love them so much.

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 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 the music and the art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
