A note from Santa Monica Proper Hotel
Updated 12/22/20 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.


#1 of 38 hotels in Santa Monica
Santa Monica Proper introduces a looser kind of luxury to Santa Monica. Here, within walking distance to the beach, each of the 271 rooms, suites and spaces successfully optimize the city’s abundant ocean breezes and natural light, while the interior design finds inspiration in the organic tones and textures of the local coastline. Santa Monica Proper beckons guests with the only rooftop pool deck on the Westside, complete with Balearic restaurant, bar, and cabanas, where guests are front-row for sunsets over the Pacific; meanwhile, the landmark restaurant, Onda (opening September), marks an iconic collaboration between James Beard award-winning chefs Jessica Koslow and Gabriela Camara. With an emphasis on Eastern inspired wellness, the hotel’s Surya Spa (opening this winter), offers custom-designed Ayurvedic programs supporting physical, mental and spiritual health. Anything less just wouldn't be Proper.

Very few hotels can nail so much so well all at once -- The Proper in Santa Monica does that. The design is incredible, the staff is beyond friendly, the food is fantastic, and the over ambiance makes you feel like you are somewhere truly special.

This is a beautiful boho coastal chic hotel in a glorious location. Young and lively Clientèle that are great for people watching. :) When we arrived, rooftop restaurant was booked and none of the other restaurants yet opened, so we walked down the street for sushi. The day prior, early check in was requested, but the hotel could not accommodate. However, they were able to have our room ready at 3. Our room 608 has a partial view to the ocean, but the majority faced a wall and an outside walking area. The ambient noise in this room is loud due to location underneath rooftop restaurant. The noise was not bothersome until late at night, when cleaning crew came jn. Lots of scraping from moving furniture kept us up. The room itself, a King Deluxe, was beautifully appointed with Aesop’s products, marble bathroom, electric drapes and very cool design overall. We did not use the hotel amenities as our stay was 1 night, but loved that we could walk everywhere. Beach and restaurants close. We did request with valet, upon arriving, that our electric vehicle be charged. This was mot done, with no explanation on why. The hotel’s public spaces are very chic in a casual beach way and it was a lovely stay. I would go back and upgrade to a better room.

Honestly this was the best hotel we could have possibly stayed at while visiting LA. Perfectly located, the hotel is so beautiful: rooms, rooftop, lobby... absolutely gorgeous. Rooms are quiet, very well furnished, and the staff is really great. Everyone was very nice, but Tasha at the front desk was beyond exceptional, she is the best! Gave us great recommendations, assisted me with an issue I had, always had a smile on and was willing to help. Bottom line: don’t think twice: stay at this hotel it’s the best !

🚨 cute spot alert! 🚨 @calabra.santamonica located within the @santamonicaproper hotel is one of the cutest spots I’ve been to in a while. The places is STUNNING!! Perfect place to hang out with friends, have brunch and catch some sun in the outdoors. The food was high quality and on the healthy side, yet still delicious. Highly recommend as a Sunday Sunday spot.
