Hotel June: Proper Hotels’ sister hotel to open this Spring.
Scheduled to open spring 2020, Hotel June is the first full-service, creative-leaning hotel to open between Santa Monica and LAX in more than a decade. The chic hotel will cater to travellers who seek design, dining, and community at an accessible price point.
Located in the former Custom Hotel near LAX International Airport Hotel June’s location on the Westside means a short, 5-minute drive to city’s iconic coastline or into the heart of Silicon Beach, with the highly anticipated SoFi Stadium only 10 minutes away.
Hotel June’s Design
Occupying a 250-room mid-century building, the modern coastal aesthetic of Hotel June frames an immersive cultural experience thanks to collaborations with local creatives, artists, and artisans. Originally designed by legendary L.A. architect Welton Becket, the classic lines of HotelJune’s exterior complement restrained interiors defined by the use of warm natural oak, earthy finishes, and custom furnishings. Local design agency Studio Collective was tasked with crafting the bright, modern interiors which are grounded in the creative, freewheeling soul of coastal California—befitting the hotel’s hyper-local ethos. Embodying a cool, stripped-back aesthetic, the spacious rooms, many of which with sweeping ocean or city views, are outfitted in a curated collection of furniture and select artwork sourced from local craftsmen and artists, reflecting the Westside’s progressive creative spirit.
Hotel June’s Food
Embracing the city’s colourful and thriving foodie scene, Hotel June has teamed up with local hospitality impresario Steve Livigni of Happy To Serve You Hospitality Group (Scopa Italian Roots, DAMA, Old Lightning) to co-conceive the food and beverage concepts. Reflecting Hotel June’s favourite stops on a road trip from Northern Baja to Santa Barbara, the dining sensibilities here draw heavily on inspiration from California’s diversity, agriculture, brewing, winemaking, and distilling. Hotel June’s culinary programs aim to be single-use plastic-free, in alignment with the team’s continued efforts toward sustainability.
Framed by lush greenery, the exterior ground-level pool deck epitomizes laidback L.A. living. An intimate pool is surrounded by stylish teak loungers, while a shaded terrace is perfectly appointed for whiling away languid summer days with small plates and long drinks. The lobby, with its living room and all-day restaurant, is the beating heart of the hotel; a warm, engaging space that encourages purposeful engagement and collaboration between guests and locals alike. The conversation continues through a progressive program of workshops, performance, talks, tastings and live music, created in partnership with the Westside’s creative community.
Led by the visionaries behind The Kor Group, the company currently manages Proper branded hotels in San Francisco, Santa Monica, and Austin, Avalon branded hotels in Beverly Hills and Palm Springs, as well as the Hotel June on the Westside of Los Angeles.
