Santa Monica Proper Hotel eyes June 17 opening

The Santa Monica Proper Hotel is scheduled to open on June 17 in Santa Monica, Calif. Located at 700 Wilshire Blvd., the property will fuse a circa-1928, Arthur E. Harvey-designed Spanish Colonial Revival building with new construction to create a new 271-room hotel.

Designed by interior designer Kelly Wearstler, the building has Spanish architecture and Moorish details throughout. Local artists and designers add a touch of Santa Monica elements. The new building is monolithic in nature with a natural, organic palette and furnishings that evoke the beach with décor reminiscent of what one would find along the shore.

The property will also have three restaurant/bar destinations, including a first-ever collaboration between chefs Jessica Koslow (Sqirl) and Gabriela Camara (Contramar); fitness center with yoga terrace; and a rooftop pool, deck and restaurant/bar. The property will also have the Surya Spa from Ayurvedic guru Martha Soffer.
