Housed inside Albert Pissis' landmark flatiron building, which stands at the intersection of three bustling San Francisco streets—Market, McAllister, and Jones—the hotel is a picture of nostalgia-toned Beaux-Arts architecture complete with a rooftop terrace and sweeping views of the cityscape. The 1904-designed building originally stood just two stories high and experienced a number of fires, leading to subsequent renovations over the years, with the most recent modernization taking place just before San Francisco Proper Hotel’s opening.

Interior Design

New spirit for an old soul

Kelly Wearstler’s design feels fresh but also as if it could belong to another age entirely. A highlight in the guestrooms are Wearstler-designed wall coverings inspired by vintage European graphics from a variety of countries. “Placing four patterns together in a single room was a way to modernize these classic papers and give depth and dimension to each guest room,” she says.
