    Mediocre

    I found this hotel to be very overpriced for what it is. The staff is friendly and courteous but the hotel itself was underwhelming and just so expensive. We would not return.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Beautiful but pricey and lacking wow factor

    Beautiful hotel but the value isn’t quite there. The staff was super nice and friendly but the price for what you get isn’t much. The pool was reservation only and even though we arrived three hours before check in the pool was already reserved for the weekend. The steamer in the room was broken and when we requested a second that one also did not work. The switches that control the lights and curtains have a mind of their own. The room was pretty small even though it was the third largest room. We asked if we could upgrade to a room with a view but none of the rooms really have views unless you’re north or west facing on the top floors and there’s only 6 floors. We did get upgraded to a room with a big outdoor patio but there were no furnishings or decor outside except two chairs, no plants or anything so that was odd compared to the rest of the room and hotel that were very nicely decorated. I would have been completely happy with this hotel if it were priced about half of what they were charging. I did a bit of research ahead of time and there are other hotels nearby that don’t have the striking new design but would have had ocean views and larger room for less money. The best part of the stay was the staff and interior design, everything else was nice but less than exceptional, which I expected for the price.

    Fun pool, stylish (small) rooms

    The good: The Proper is a stylish, chic hotel in Santa Monica. The room decor is great and the toiletries are top of the line! The upstairs pool is a really great vibe and the food offered poolside is delicious. Huge oversized bathrooms in the room are nice! Ability to text front desk is a nice touch. The bad: we paid for a suite and got a pretty small room with a 1.5 person sofa crammed between the bed and the wall, with no real loving around space. The room was also located right next to the elevator (extremely loud), blackout curtains aren’t big enough to block out light, and the windows looks into other rooms so little privacy. The food from upstairs, when ordered as in-room dining, is a totally different experience compared to eating at restaurant (undersized, overpriced). Pool hostess was not pleasant, and pool reservations are required on weekends (with limited time slots, so don’t plan on lounging all day).

    My wife and I recently stayed at the proper for two nights. Beautiful hotel, amazing staff, and great rooftop pool. Shoutout to the valet for always pulling out the car quickly - never had to wait. I would definitely stay again.
