This laid-back luxury hotel embodies 1920s sophistication – echoing its facades’ history, with a contemporary So-Cal vibe. Dramatic features include the only rooftop pool deck in Santa Monica, the first Surya Ayurvedic Hotel Spa and indulgent dining options celebrating local and sustainable produce.

Situated along Wilshire Boulevard, near Downtown, there is an array of bars, restaurants, shops and the iconic, twice-weekly, farmers' market within walking distance. Santa Monica’s coastal footpath is under a mile away and Santa Monica Pier is a mile away. It’s just over half a mile from Santa Monica Station, where you can catch the Expo line from Los Angeles Airport, 12 and a half miles away.

Santa Monica Proper Hotel takes its inspiration from the natural world, and this extends through to the Interiors designed by Kelly Wearstler. Guest rooms combine natural wood and textures to reflect the local coastline. They feature modern conveniences including fabric-steamers, HDTV with AppleTV, a Proper App to customize your in-room experience, including room-service and housekeeping, and Vifa Bluetooth speakers.

With an emphasis on Eastern inspired wellness, the hotel’s Surya Spa presided over by internationally renowned Ayurvedic guru Martha Soffer, offers custom-designed programmes supporting physical, mental and spiritual health. From the one hour revitalisation treatment to the 3-28 day Panchakarma transformations, you will be nurtured, healed, and supported.

The 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness centre offers a personalised service too, offering everything from strength training, weight and cardio equipment to group fitness classes. Join the free yoga session on the Olea Terrace or Calabra Rooftop for daily or weekly classes (depending on the season). You don’t need to pack all your training kit either, when you use the Fly Club – a premium workout gear-rental experience that delivers the latest Nike footwear and apparel to the concierge in advance of your arrival.
