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.

Loved everything about the interiors of this hotel, but the location was scary. Not a place I would recommend for solo travelers. The staff was friendly and accommodating which made the stay better than first expected. Be sure to ask for someone to accompany you outside at night if you have a dog that needs to get walked!

Due to COVID my family decided to do a staycation for our daughter’s birthday in the city. We are so glad we made the right choice to pick Proper Hotel. Hotel has good COVID procedure that all guests enter have to take temp and answer questions. The front desk director coordinated the team to give us a special arrangement. Alba is so sweet to put up balloons and cake for our girl to surprise her at arrival. Diane at front desk is also very helpful and took good care to every guest at check in/out. It’s a beautiful designed hotel, we stayed at Junior Suite and it’s roomy even with the rollerway bed. I’d suggest family to book this type of room. Hotel room is comfy and clean. ASEOP products are a plus. Roof top brunch and drinks are amazingly good, I love the Japanese breakfast set. Highly recommend for anyone local wish to stay for a special occasion or guest from out town, the hotel is centrally locates and walking distance to mall and union square. Thank you Proper Team to bring us love and joy! Read less

My wife and I were looking for a night away from the kids to try and relax and the Proper Hotel delivered! First, the price was right for a quick night away... and what we got was a great value. Clean well decorated room with comfy bed, nice sheets, cool bathroom with Aesop toiletries. Very solid. Secondly the customer service was OUTSTANDING. Every staff member we interacted with was awesome, but Big shoutout to Alba at the front desk. When we checked in our keys weren’t working... so we back downstairs to get that fixed... and we asked about switching locations because the original room had some noisy neighbors. She not only helped us find a new room, she made sure it was in a quiet area so we could get good rest. Alba came through again for dinner! We had mistakenly booked the patio for dinner when we were hoping to go up to the rooftop bar, Charmaine’s. Opentable said it was boooed for the night, but Alba managed to get us in at a prime 8pm time slot! Saved the whole night! Lastly, speaking of Charmaine’s... SO GOOD! A definite must do. Because of COVID, it was outdoor only but they had these huge fire pits that served as heaters too so we were perfectly comfortable. Our server, Sydney, was great... gave great recommendations and even helped get my wife a special cocktail off the menu. Drinks were A+... food was great... atmosphere was very cool. One thing in full disclosure, the location of the hotel is not amazing. Everything around it is pretty urban... so if you are coming into the city to walk around and sight see... I would stay elsewhere. But if you are coming in to chill inside your hotel, go up to a cool rooftop bar to eat and drink... then Proper is your spot! Read less
