Hotel June is set to open in Los Angeles during Springtime, marking the next chapter in the narrative of Proper Hotels.
Co-founders Brian De Lowe and Brad Korzen have created a more approachable, value-focused embodiment of the Proper vision with this new hotel. Hotel June marks the debut of a brand that will cater to travellers who seek design, dining and community at an accessible price point.
Hotel June’s location on the Westside places it a stone’s throw from the city’s coastline or the heart of Silicon Beach. Occupying a 250-room mid-century building, the modern coastal aesthetic of Hotel June creates a backdrop for an immersive cultural experience thanks to collaborations with local creatives, artists and artisans.
Originally designed by L.A. architect Welton Becket, the classic lines of Hotel June’s exterior complement the restrained interiors which are defined by the use of warm natural oak, earthy finishes, and custom furnishings. Local design agency Studio Collective has created bright, contemporary interiors with a stripped-back aesthetic. Spacious rooms, many of which with ocean or city views, are decorated with a curated collection of furniture and select artwork sourced from local craftsmen and artists, reflecting the West coast’s creative spirit.
For the F&B concepts, Hotel June teamed with local hospitality impresario Steve Livigni of Happy To Serve You, drawing inspiration from California’s diversity, agriculture, brewing, winemaking and distilling. In alignment with the team’s continued efforts towards sustainability, the hotel’s culinary programs aim to be free of single-use plastics.
Framed by greenery, the exterior ground-level pool deck is decorated with teak loungers and a shaded terrace serves small plates and long drinks. The hotel lobby, with its living room and all-day restaurant, is a warm, engaging space that hosts a program of workshops, performances, talks, tastings and live music.
