San Francisco Proper Hotel

San Francisco, USA

The hotel

California’s creative spirit lives and breathes at the San Francisco Proper Hotel. Set in one of city’s most historic buildings, this flatiron landmark may be timeless on the outside, but step inside to see the inspired imagination of designer Kelly Wearstler. Flamboyant floral wallpaper isn’t perhaps what you’d expect to be paired with playful graphic textiles, but it works — the rooms and social spaces scream urban sophistication. And, while you get to enjoy the timeless service, the amenities are definitely modern, from your room’s free WiFi and Google Chromecast, to the contemporary food on offer. Pick from the multi-cultural menu of Villon or sit around a communal table at La Bande and sip on a craft beer or cappuccino — then head to Charmaine’s rooftop bar for a cocktail around the fire pit, while you enjoy those Frisco views.

Diane, Russel and Julia are why I keep coming back to this property every time I'm in San Francisco.

Diane, Russel and Julia are why I keep coming back to this property every time I'm in San Francisco. They make me feel valued and pay attention to the minor details that make my stay more comfortable. Even the housekeeping noticed my small tube of toothpaste had run out and thoughtfully left a new tube of toothpaste for me without me having to ask! They know my dog's name and make his comfort just as comfortable as my own. The rooms are well-designed for comfort and the food is really scrumptious (get the gnocci!) but the PEOPLE are really the biggest difference. I come back again and again because I know I'll be remembered. Read less

My partner and I live in the oakland area and we frequent the Proper hotel often. Every single time we have stayed here we have had the best service! It starts from the moment you pull up to the door and the moment you walk out the door. The Proper Hotel delivers that WOW effect! Valet service is always very friendly, front desk service members go above and beyond. The Villon restaurant food is excellent and always above par. Charmaines bar has a spectacular view and great vibe. Every room we have stayed in has been amazing. If you get the chance grab the premium suite if available, it is amazing. Now for our most recent stay I can’t thank Dianne enough! She is the sweetest person and embraces customer service. She definitely knows how to treat guest and I would have her on my team being in the real estate industry myself. Russell is leading a great team! Thanks Proper Hotel team for making this our staycation of the year. Read less

Stayed here one night for business. The hotel has a great rooftop bar, well equipped gym and comfortable rooms with top notch showers and Aesop toiletries. The staff were so helpful and friendly especially Diane at the front desk who went above and beyond.

This hotel is totally pretty, but nothing really works right. You can't open the windows. The rooms still kinda smell like the tenderloin building it was before it got decorated. The tv doesn't really work. The food is pretty but not a single item is seasoned correctly (instagram!). I paid for a room size upgrade and can't imagine how there is a… Read more
