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.

Seriously, bed was divine. Hotel is beautiful and access to Charmaine's was fun, especially on a sunny day getting to skip the line. Housekeeping starts at 8am, so if you don't want to be bothered make sure you put your sign on your door otherwise you may get an unexpected guest trying to enter.

Seriously, bed was divine. Hotel is beautiful and access to Charmaine's was fun, especially on a sunny day getting to skip the line. Housekeeping starts at 8am, so if you don't want to be bothered make sure you put your sign on your door otherwise you may get an unexpected guest trying to enter. On that note, room are quite private as I yelled loudly 3x to let the housekeeper know I was in the room still, and she didn't hear me - so at least the walls are insulated well. Neighborhood is not the best but hotel and amenities are top notch. Also loved the gym in the basement with nice details like towels and water. Read less

So hard to know where to begin with the endless fails of this place. EVERYTHING is trying to be too hip and TOO complicated for its own good - it's like millennial run amok with attitude and stupidity in execution. A fail overall.

So hard to know where to begin with the endless fails of this place. EVERYTHING is trying to be too hip and TOO complicated for its own good - it's like millennial run amok with attitude and stupidity in execution. A fail overall. Want coffee delivered to your room before 7 am? Tough luck. It's a negotiation or you're welcome to come to the lobby. Leave a charger cube behind? Excellent, "we've eliminated the middle man so you can get your stuff back" (which is horsesh$t because they've INSERTED a middle man who will now charge $22 to return said charger cube to Seattle.) USB ports hidden away in drawers, wake up calls that don't happen, oh and privilege of all this at $800+ a night. By the way, enjoy the methadone clinic and it’s customers right there. Oh, want to talk to a manager? Be prepared to be on hold for 15-30 minutes with a phone incessantly ringing. I'm a frequent traveler for work and play. I don't often write negative reviews (2 in my life). Avoid this place like the plague. They have no idea what being in the "HOSPITALITY" business means. Read less

Proper Hotel is a terrific and much needed establishment in one of the hippest cities in the US. The Interior Design, the Service, the Staff and the EXPERIENCE are all top notch. I hope to stay at this great hotel for many years to come. LOVED everything about my 4 day stay in September 2019.

The front desk staff are great. Their Customer attention and overall service for superb. They opened up a line of communication with me via text and checked on me throughout my stay. They answered anything I asked through text and suggested all the right places from a restaurant to vineyards to visit in Napa. My favorite hotel in San Francisco
