Relaxed vibes of design mecca – San Francisco

Just like the city, modern and unique, the San Francisco Proper Hotel, a member of Design Hotels, has often been named the hippest hotel in town. Hotel’s superb interior by the designer Kelly Wearstler is considered one of the best in the world.

Housed in a landmarked, Beaux-Arts era, flatiron building, San Francisco Proper adds unexpected luxury and exuberance to the heart of Mid-Market, just minutes from Union Square and SoMa. Discover celebrated culinary destinations, sprawling green spaces, and independent boutiques nearby, and end the evening with a cocktail at Charmaine’s rooftop bar with sweeping views of the city.
