The Setting

Behold the first luxury urban resort to debut in Santa Monica in over a decade, The Proper. This holistically designed space by uber-designer Kelly Wearstler features a 1920’s era-landmark building and new contemporary architecture. Named one of the “5 Best Hotels in Greater Los Angeles 2022”  by Travel + Leisure, the Proper offers hip westside denizens a place to gather and boasts the only rooftop pool in Santa Monica.

The idyllic location puts you within walking distance from the beach, boutique shopping, health-conscious cafes, indulgent fine dining, and the twice-weekly Farmers Market, not to mention nearby Will Rogers State Park and its miles of hiking trails. What’s most proper about this hotel, though, is its commitment to both people and the planet, cultivating enriching environments that prioritize well-being for their colleagues and through their ongoing Proper Giving initiatives focused on giving back to local causes. In short, The Proper Santa Monica is building a more equitable and sustainable future, by design. 

Sleep and Sanctuary

The Proper’s 267 pet-friendly guest rooms and signature suites are some of the best dwellings on LA’s westside. Most rooms offer terraces boasting views of the surrounding landscape and abundant natural light. Stretch out entirely in one, two, or three-bedroom suites curated by designer-du-jour Kelly Wearstler. Landmark rooms are housed in a re-imagined 1920s landmarked building offering a unique perspective and art deco deets. Premier and Deluxe guest rooms are styled impeccably, featuring “oh so comfy” Proper beds, positioned to maximize the views dressed with crisp Italian linens, hypo-allergenic pillows and blankets custom designed for the space. Baths feature walk-in travertine showers, marble vanities, PArachute bathrobes and Aesop bath products.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Dining at The Proper takes on the unique Santa Monica alfresco scene and kicks up a notch, a few notches, actually, all the way up to the rooftop. At the indoor/outdoor Calabra, you can sip biodynamic wines and signature cocktails and savor the Mediterranean and California-inspired cuisine alongside sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and the sparkling Santa Monica skyline. The vibe continues down in the lobby at Palma, an art-inspired space featuring all-day dining, light bites, and a convivial bar scene.
