Downtown LA Proper - Properly Good Hotel In A 1926 Renaissance Revival-Style Landmark BuildingDowntown LA  
Proper Hotel

Proper Hotels is a rapidly expanding chain that turns landmark buildings into luxury boutique hotels. Their newest addition sits at the edge of LA's fashion district, in the heart of downtown.

The beautiful 13-story Renaissance Revival-style building was built in 1926 and was designed by architects Alexander Curlett and Claud Beelman.

The building on Broadway street was formerly home to a private club in the 1920s, then to Cabrillo Hotel and later Case Hotel, and before Proper took over, YWCA ran their program for 39 years here.
