Santa Monica Proper introduces a looser kind of luxury to Santa Monica. Here, within walking distance to the beach, each of the 271 rooms, suites and spaces successfully optimize the city’s abundant ocean breezes and natural light, while the interior design finds inspiration in the organic tones and textures of the local coastline. Santa Monica Proper beckons guests with the only rooftop pool deck on the Westside, complete with Balearic restaurant, bar, and cabanas, where guests are front-row for sunsets over the Pacific; meanwhile, the landmark restaurant, Onda (opening September), marks an iconic collaboration between James Beard award-winning chefs Jessica Koslow and Gabriela Camara. With an emphasis on Eastern inspired wellness, the hotel’s Surya Spa (opening this winter), offers custom-designed Ayurvedic programs supporting physical, mental and spiritual health. Anything less just wouldn't be Proper.

The Proper's people and physical facilities are a standout. Julien put his personal touch on our visit. We highly recommend this beautiful and clean space. We will certainly return to stay during our next trip to LA

Our staycation at the Proper was an overstimulating experience. The palette, the pieces, the drinks, the DETAILS! I wanted to appreciate the style and decor of our suite yet could not wait to visit every other space of the hotel - As soon as we walked in, the concierge Youhan truly showed luxe quality and value. I never felt rushed and will 100% be back!

I loved my stay at Santa Monica Proper Hotel so much, I stayed an extra 2 nights. The rooms are beautiful, beds are heaven (best night's sleep ever), the food is extraordinary (whether in the restaurants or room service) and even the amenities are perfection. The gyms are fantastic (fully equipped with cardio, weights, Pelotons & Tonals), the Surya spa is also incredible and that rooftop pool and the Calabra restaurant-- wow, the best place to watch a sunset or have brunch ever. The staff is so professional and also friendly, warm, caring and they anticipate your every need. From the moment you check in until you depart, this staff goes above and beyond, making you feel at home and taken care of. The Proper Skinny Margarita is a must rooftop at the Calabra while unwinding and watching the sunset (also try the chicken, sushi, branzino, ceviche, guacamole, vegetarian mezzo platter, the tacos and that amazing pasta with lobster and oh yeah, the cupcakes!). One of the best parts of the hotel are all the spaces you can hang out whether in the lobby lounges, the various restaurants, the outside courtyards or the pool. All designed and furnished beautifully by Kelly Wearstler whose style is as inspiring as it is comfortable -- every where you eye lands is a pleasure. They say it starts at the top and the hotel is managed by Julien who clearly has created an incredible environment. The staff all seem to love working there and that great atmosphere extends to the guests. They all go out of their way to make you feel like you're a part of their family and that the quality of your stay is the most important thing to them. From reception to restaurant managers to food servers to security to valets to housekeeping, bartenders and beyond, its hands down the best staff I have had the pleasure to interact with in any of my travels here or abroad. I had a 12 night stay at The SaMo Proper and I cannot wait to return! I happen to be there during Covid and I have to say I felt so safe and protected the entire time. Their covid safety protocols are excellent and followed by all -- and yet none of it takes away from the luxury, comfort, pampering and relaxation of the Hotel, restaurants, lounges and incredible service.
