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.

I arrived for dinner at the hotel's restaurant in a rare San Francisco downpour. I was soaked to the bone in my black skinny jeans and suddenly dreading my much-anticipated evening at Hamilton.

I arrived for dinner at the hotel's restaurant in a rare San Francisco downpour. I was soaked to the bone in my black skinny jeans and suddenly dreading my much-anticipated evening at Hamilton. I went to the front desk to see if there was anywhere nearby I could buy a pair of dry pants. And what happened next is beyond description. Diane went so above and beyond to make everything right for me - I couldn't believe it. She took care of me like a friend. My girlfriends and I enjoyed a delicious dinner and I left for the theater with my skinny jeans cozy and dry. Thank you Diane for being my knight in shining armor! Read less

From the time we pulled up to our checkout the service was nothing short of amazing. The atmosphere, staff, service and decor all exceptional. Highly recommend this hotel. I recommend to Uber as well if you don’t drive

This is such a stylish hotel with thoughtful decor, well-appointed rooms and friendly staff. The rooms are small but the beds are comfortable! My only real complaint with the hotel is its location. While its convenient to some good shopping, the homeless situation around and near the hotel is unpleasant and there is the constant smell of marijuana. We walked from the hotel to breakfast one morning and took an Uber back to the hotel rather than walk through what felt like, at best, an uncomfortable situation, but frankly slightly dangerous. We had a great time with our teen kids on this trip...San Francisco is so fun. If you are staying at this hotel, plan on using Uber/Lyft to get where you want to go. Read less

I booked the Proper for a short getaway to visit with friends. It was the closest 4/5 star hotel from where I needed to be. There’s so many things to do within walking distance from the hotel, that I regretted not staying longer to explore.

I booked the Proper for a short getaway to visit with friends. It was the closest 4/5 star hotel from where I needed to be. There’s so many things to do within walking distance from the hotel, that I regretted not staying longer to explore. The hotel and the amenities are nicely decorated and clean, with so many interesting patterns and textures. The staff was one of the friendliest I’ve experienced within the U.S. I’d definitely stay again next time I’m in the Bay Area. Read less

I stayed in the bunk room, it was just me so the room was perfect for one night. The size of the room reminded me of being in a college dorm but super stylish! The bed was so cozy and had a tv on the wall. There are tons of fluffy pillows and blankets it’s like a dark sleeping cocoon. There is plenty of room for two people with just weekend plans.… Read more
I stayed in the bunk room, it was just me so the room was perfect for one night. The size of the room reminded me of being in a college dorm but super stylish! The bed was so cozy and had a tv on the wall. There are tons of fluffy pillows and blankets it’s like a dark sleeping cocoon. There is plenty of room for two people with just weekend plans. If you plan to spend time in the room the bunk room might not be the best choice. The bathroom is small-a toilet and large standup shower. The design is just perfect and once you start pumping the Aesop products you’re taken away! The technology in the room was also fun. I quickly received toothpaste and reserved a bike with the touch of a button. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I checked out the bar on rooftop-didn’t stay for a drink but it was hoppin! Nice nighttime city views up there! I had breakfast in the morning which I enjoyed. The lobby decor is out of a magazine. I borrowed the courtesy bike and rode all over the city! There isn’t much traffic on Sunday so riding was a breeze. I’m so glad I stayed here and look forward to my next visit. It was a Proper hotel! Loved it! Thanks to all the staff for making my visit lovely! Read less
