Luxury Hotel Santa Monica Proper Opens
Sun-drenched Santa Monica welcomes a new addition to its luxe hotel offerings. This summer the Luxury Hotel Santa Monica Proper opens its doors. Located on Seventh Street between Wilshire Boulevard and Arizona Avenue, the Kelly Wearstler-designed hotel fuses a circa-1928, Spanish colonial revival building with new construction. The result is a sprawling 271-room lifestyle hotel just a short walk from the ocean’s edge. Above all, it’s close enough to home for So Cal-ers so that there’s no need to travel too far for a getaway.
Luxury Details in Design
Wearstler is known for juxtaposing eclectic mixes of color, texture, shape and architectural details. As a result, she went all out with her attention to specifics at the newest property. Her husband Brad Korzen, who co-founded the Proper Hotel chain with Brian De Lowe, developed the property. Rooms book up quickly as word gets out that luxury hotel Santa Monica Proper opens its doors for business. Seems like guests looking for a high-end lifestyle stay will be pleased. Likewise, there’s a low-key beach vibe in the lobby lounge. It’s filled with seating vignettes surrounded by giant potted palms, whimsical accessories and natural tones and textures. Certainly, guests sit and enjoy a drink, read a book or pull out computers for an inspired office space.
Luxury Guest Rooms and Common Spaces
First of all, well-appointed guest rooms boast full size Aesop bath products and custom Parachute bathrobes. Also, the double-paned windows ensure no street noise inhibits restful sleep. Another point, TVs mounted on wooden easels are fully tech-ready with Apple TV. Likewise, wandering the property, it is clear that a focus of Santa Monica Proper is on the particulars. Beach-inspired accents throughout, light drenched and open air hallways all make you forget that Wilshire Boulevard is right below. The 360 degree views from the rooftop pool, restaurant, bar and lounge jive with the relaxed yet ultra-luxe ambience. “We are disrupting traditional luxury with one-of-a-kind hotels offering a looser kind of luxury with world-class experience and product,” explains Angela Lockyer, Area Director of Sales and Marketing, of Proper Hotel’s philosophy and motto that everyone deserves a life well lived.
Hotel Eating and Drinking
Even more, that experience continues to unroll with restaurant Onda. This, the first ever partnership of L.A. native Jessica Koslow of Sqirl fame and Gabriela Cámara of Contramar in Mexico City. The Ayurvedic Surya Spa is moving from its current Brentwood location to Santa Monica Proper in November. It offers a full spa menu, including its 21-day detox program. Other amenities include a 3,700-square-foot ballroom, beach butler service for transport and full beach set up and Marriott Bonvoy loyalty points. So whether you are looking to get away for the day, the night or the weekend, this space provides a truly Proper respite, right in the middle of it all.
