Fodor's Expert Review San Francisco Proper Hotel

1100 Market St., San Francisco, California, 94102, USA Fodor's Choice

Inside the magnificent, flatiron-shape Beaux-Arts building—given a modern refresh in the mid-2010s—is one of the city's most spectacular places to stay, a sharp, upscale, ultra-hip boutique hotel; in contrast, outside is one of the roughest intersections for streetlife in San Francisco. The Proper rates high both for the eye-catching redesign by Kelly Wearstler (she also designed the guest room blankets and kimonos) and for amenities like SF's premier rooftop bar (Charmaine's) and Bellino fine Italian linens, towels, and down comforters.
