Santa Monica Proper Hotel
We like to say that Proper hotels were sparked by a feeling — a yearning to create spaces where travelers could genuinely connect; to both relax and get inspired. We think similarly about the holidays. The magic of this season is a feeling. A time for coming together, sparking joy, reflecting on memories, and looking forward to what’s to come. This year more than ever, we’re reflecting with gratitude for our Proper family — and welcome you to find festivity with a getaway or staycation with our special holiday rates. Book a spacious room for your family, and make our beautiful, outdoor-friendly cities this year’s holiday home base. Anything less wouldn’t be Proper.
