Where to Stay in San Francisco - Proper Hotel

Where to Stay in San Francisco - Proper Hotel

Where to Stay in San Francisco - Proper Hotel, California, USA - by Madeline Lu

Proper Hotel offers everything you expect as an unforgettable stay in San Francisco, and more!

1. Location: Set in one of the most iconic historic flatiron buildings in SF's Mid Market neighborhood, Proper Hotel has one of the best locations for a hotel as your base to experience the city. It takes less than 30 minutes to arrive the hotel either by train or car from major airports in San Francisco. Then you are walking distance to the Union Square, where you can hop on the iconic cable car to explore the steep streets of the city. 

2. Architecture and Interior: Designed by the one and only interior Goddess Kelly Wearstler, Proper Hotel has taken Instagram by storm.  The lobby, or lounge more like, is filled with beautifully curated artwork and furniture. The guest rooms offer an eclectic vintage-meets-chic vibe, with playful touches such as mixing floral with patterned wallpapers and vintage yet cool furniture.  Plush California-made mattresses from Aireloom and silky-soft bed linens from Italian textile manufacturer Bellino keep things extra cozy. Bathroom counters are stocked with botanical bath amenities from Aesop, the Melbourne-based skincare lab, and each room is outfitted with sleek wireless speakers by the design-minded Nordic brand, Vifa. The hotel also offers complimentary use of its retro-inspired Shinola bikes, handmade in Detroit. Our kids particularly loved the Bunk Rooms (two bunks only), which connected to our king bed, giving us, the parents, the perfect amount of privacy., 

3. Amazing Restaurant Villon and Roof Bar Charamille's: you really don't have to travel far (just take the elevator and go downstairs) to check out one of the best SF restaurants of 2018 - Villon (see my review here). And then in the evening, all you need to do it take the lift upstairs to reach the hottest roof bar in the city - Charmaineโ€™s (see my review here). As a guest of the hotel, you will skip the long waiting line outside and be escorted by the staff to get into the bar via an internal lift. Then simply enjoy the beautifully crafted cocktails with amazing 360-degree night city view complimented with cozy fire pits. 

4. Friendly and Thoughtful Services: all the staff we had interaction with, from the bellmen, receptionists, restaurant servers, bartenders, housekeepers, everyone was friendly and professional. They made our stay truly comfortable and welcomed.  The hotel also offers a "Proper App" allows guests to order room service, buy tickets to a nearby show, hail a cab, or schedule an in-room massage, all from the comfort of their smartphones. A true Silicon Valley style, no?

All in all, we absolutely loved our stay at Proper Hotel and cannot wait to go back. Definitely, a place to recommend to our family and friends, too!
