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.

Chose this hotel bc it is part of the Amex hotel group...you get extra points staying here and it looked nice as our first stop on a big trip. Anyhow, let’s talk pros: COVID is taken seriously, room is large, beautiful appointments, they have included lots of the original detailing, roof top restaurant is really great, staff very nice and helpful. Great overall. Con is a biggie: there is a serious homeless and drug addict issue just outside their door. When we pulled up to valet, we were told security would walk us to our car if we needed it at night. Then the entrance door was unlocked and our temp taken. I am not sure if that is a COVID protocol to keep the door locked or if it is to keep the street folks outside? I have travelled all over the world, including Amsterdam where drugs are legal. I have never seen such a homeless and drug addict problem. We did not feel safe walking from the hotel with our young son because of the vagrant issue. I am not sure why others are not mentioning this? We literally did not see but two other people the one time we did walk to Chinatown that were not high, suffering from a serious mental health issue or begging. I was shocked. You have to dodge tents and druggies to walk on the sidewalk once you get a block from Proper. And to be fair, this is NOT the hotel’s issue and is just unfortunate for them. Travelers do not want to have to worry about getting robbed or harassed and I am sure the hotel does not want to have to deal with this issue either. Where is all the California money to help these people get off the streets AND police the drug addicts? California is the 4th richest state in the union and yet this is the worst I have seen. Shameful. Be prepared to take Uber and skip the walking. Read less

We had the option to opt out of housekeeping to minimize exposure risk. The decor was wonderful and each of the staff were helpful and prompt. The rooftop restaurant is amazing and I highly recommend making a reservation before you go to the hotel as it often sells out. They also provide the room service so we got to sample some of the appetizers on our first night before heading there on our 2nd for the full dinner. Highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant.

This hotel is in the worst area. Just checking in, I saw people shooting up heroin in front of the hotel. Walking back from parking is an experience if you are into dodging crazy people and human feces. Service is terrible at the hotel.

This hotel is a great option if you want to get away but not go anywhere because of covid. They have great restaurants, and their rooms and technology is convenient, making it a relaxing stay. Their room service was fast and efficient. They have a talented kitchen staff. Great eats. :)
