For a Proper start to the new year, begin your list of resolutions with a commitment to mindfulness, creating time with your partner, with friends, with family, to refresh and renew with a getaway for fun and relaxation. Regroup with intention after the holiday madness or whenever you need a place to get centered and reclaim what is important, in the lovely serenity of Santa Monica Proper Hotel. Discover what you are looking for in the heart of Santa Monica, where your happy place boasts a beautiful rooftop retreat with swimming pool and sundeck plus ideal poolside cocktails and dining, where the beach is only a short walk away, and the pampered life beckons in your Proper guestroom or suite.

Santa Monica Proper Hotel is a salutation to history remembered and revisioned, its modern chic design blending elements of mid-century European stylish pieces in its curvaceous settees, wing chairs, headboards and lighting, the inspiration of talented Kelly Wearstler. Her creative vision brings a soothing palette designed to maximize tranquility in color and textures, natural light with curved floor to ceiling windows, custom Proper beds with hypo-allergenic pillows and blankets draped in imported Italian linens, spacious comfort in sitting areas for lounging or working, and baths with walk-in travertine shower and marble vanities gifted with Aesop amenities and plush Parachute Home robes. Pampered in luxury, guests will enjoy views, balcony, garden terrace, in room dining, modern technology with Apple TV, premium Wifi, and bedside control of lighting and blackout curtains.

The upcoming Grand Opening of Surya Spa at Proper brings an inspired Eastern philosophy in wellness and body treatments guided by ayurvedic guru Martha Soffer, offering custom programs supporting physical, mental, and spiritual health. The spa will join the fitness center and gym in meeting the needs and expectations of health conscious travelers.
The stunning lobby of Santa Monica Proper features an elegant Ben Medansky mural central to the Palma lobby lounge, inviting guests to relax with craft cocktails, savor the signature collection of small batch mezcals, natural wines, and tequilas with a menu of light bites. Dining at the premier Onda Restaurant for a blend of Latin flavors and LA fresh innovations, local sourced ingredients and seasonal seafood specialties.

We found our bliss on the open air rooftop at Calabra for cocktails and casual dining, for a divine escape and sunny splash in the pool, reading or dreaming in the shade of our lounge umbrella and, of course, wine and romance under the stars every night. Santa Monica Proper is your perfect location to reach the action on the Pier, a walk or surf at the beach, boutique shopping on Third, and all that LA offers beyond with the guarantee you will return to sleep and comfort in your Proper peaceful retreat.
