The next time you’re dropping by Los Angeles, make sure to take in the sights and the food. When you’re staying for a few days, you might want to try something a little different. Instead of looking at some the more usual dives, we suggest that you check out the Santa Monica Proper hotel. This establishment offers an intriguing blend of classic and modern design. Moreover, you have the pleasure of choosing from three dining facilities and so much more.

You’re looking at a Spanish Colonial Revival building designed by Arthur E. Harvey back in 1928. Don’t let the vintage fool you because it will feature contemporary tweaks none other than Kelly Wearstler, a hotel industry darling of design. The hotel will welcome guests with its 271 lavish rooms and suites. Most of these accommodations boast terraces where you can relax and enjoy the marvelous view of the City of Angels.

When hunger strikes prepare to feast on sumptuous culinary delights courtesy from Onda, its signature restaurant. For those who just want to sip a few drinks and lounge about, the Palma bar is where the action is. Then if you’re after a panoramic view of the city alongside a cool dip in the pool, head on and visit Calabra, it’s rooftop restaurant and bar. For those of you seeking the ultimate form of relaxation, Surya Spa is a 3,000 square-foot modern Ayurvedic treatment facility that will cater to our needs. Finally, when the wind and waves beckon, you can rent a surfboard from the in-house shop of Santa Monica Proper hotel.
