Proper Hospitality cofounders Brian De Lowe and Brad Korzen announce the debut of their new brand venture, Hotel June. Set to open in spring 2020, the hotel is inspired by the soul and spirit of California, named to reflect new beginnings and a summer sensibility, year-round. The inaugural property on the Westside of Los Angeles is the first of several planned locations across the U.S. and abroad. Hotel June, which marks a new chapter for Proper, caters to travelers who have a passion for design, dining and community, all at an accessible price point. De Lowe and Korzen created Hotel June as the “every visit” hotel—a place for frequent casual stays for both corporate and leisure travelers and a go-to neighborhood hangout for locals.
Hotel June displays a modern and approachable design with coastal influences across the portfolio, with elements characteristic to each market celebrated. The debut property seamlessly blends contemporary coastal California inflections with classic mid-century architecture, paying homage to the iconic nearby beaches and original building from LA architect Welton Beckett. Venice-based design agency Studio Collective brings the relaxed and bright spirit of the West Coast to life with light natural woods, native fabrics, handmade tiles and local art.
