San Francisco has a new lifestyle luxury hotel set right in the thick of Mid-Market and just steps away from the Civic Centre/UN Plaza BART Station.
Surrounded by the city’s prime theatres, museums, and entertainment venues, San Francisco Proper, features a sophisticated-cool mix of 131 original rooms layered in Kelly Wearstler’s one-of-a-kind mix of arts and materials.
Kelly Wearstler has combined modern, residential comforts of downtown living with old-school French and Italian sensibility, leaving guests with an impression that every detail was carefully handpicked ages ago.
Guests can expect to find French and European pre-modernism and Cubism; found vintage furniture; pieces in the manner of masters like Gio Ponti, Adolf Loos, Pierre Chareau, and Jean Royère; local artworks by emerging talents; and furniture and lighting from Bay Area dealers.
One-bedroom suites on every floor, at the apex above La Bande, offer a spectacular vantage “point” inside and out, from handpicked vintage pieces and down the city’s main artery of Market Street to the Ferry Building.
Connected to the pulse of the neighbourhood are three restaurants off the lobby—Villon, La Bande, as well as a 14-seat private dining room named Gilda’s, tucked away on the same floor.
The 3,400-square-foot rooftop terrace boasts indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, firepits, and stunning views of the city skyline.
With a focus on service, the hotel puts the power of the personal request at the guest’s convenience via the Proper App.
In a city that offers much more than a ferry to Alcatraz, San Francisco Proper can be found at the unusual crossroad where elite tech companies inhabit once-blighted landmarks and starred Michelin chefs have opened fast-food restaurants.
