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.

Super close to The Orpheum and other theaters since the lobby door on Market Street cuts the walk time significantly from what Google Maps shows. Room was city-center small, but bathroom and bed were great. The thing which really took this from a 4 to a 5 was that the staff handled every inquiry or request extremely well.

Super close to The Orpheum and other theaters since the lobby door on Market Street cuts the walk time significantly from what Google Maps shows. Room was city-center small, but bathroom and bed were great. The thing which really took this from a 4 to a 5 was that the staff handled every inquiry or request extremely well. They open a text-message thread on arrival day with your mobile phone and then you can either phone, text, or speak in person to get anything you need. Stefon, Diane and colleagues made a material difference. The view from the rooftop bar Charmaine's is beautiful. Breakfast was very nice also. If you are not from the area note that this stretch of Market Street borders on the Theater District and The Tenderloin neighborhood, so make sure to confer with knowledgeable sources about when, where and how to be walking.

The manager Stephen actually made us feel like he was glad that we were there! He really made an impression. I would recommend this hotel to all of my friends. Read less

Loved my stay at the Proper Hotel in San Francisco! When I first arrived, I was greeted with a very friendly, cool hello by Dianne. Not sure why, but I felt like I was saying hi to an old friend, but we'd never met. I checked in and headed to one of the bunk rooms. Darling idea, the room is charming and quaint. A little pricey for what you're getting in terms of space, but extremely well appointed. I returned to the lobby to meet my friends and told them about my room. They were surprised by the rate to the size of my room and said, why don't you go see if they have something a little bigger. So I walked back over to the front desk and asked my old friend Dianne, if she could help. She said, I think maybe I can, let me check.....a big smile came across her face and said, I've got one! I said okay, we're going to head to lunch, can I move when I get back? She said not a worry, we'll have you all moved by the time you're back and she did! Great second room!!! Beautiful mini bar worth noting. Had drinks in the Penthouse bar, beautiful! Nice bartenders. Lastly, DELICIOUS breakfast!!! Not to be missed!!! I think Rob was my server, super sweet and easy to hang with over my morning coffee. Thank you Dianne and the Proper Hotel for providing a fabulous experience! Read less
