Nice Hotel
Hotel Spero was beautiful. Very clean facility and in a prime location. I enjoyed the comfort that the staff and amenities brought me. The connected restaurant, Jaspers was also pretty good.

Covid stay!
I appreciate a clean room! Move the TV attach to wall caddy corner so that both windows provide a view and not have one blocked. Easy solution!

Boho Chic and Comfy!
We had an excellent experience at Hotel Spero. We came into town to see The Cursed Child at The Curran Theater. The location of the hotel was perfect for us. It is within walking distance of Union Square and was only one block from the theater. We were able to come back to our hotel room and rest in between parts of the play, which was nice. It appears the hotel itself has been recently renovated and the decor in the room was Boho chic-- very cute and comfortable. We received a reusable water bottle upon check-in, which was very useful during our stay. We also appreciated the free coffee and tea service in the lobby each morning. I will definitely stay at Hotel Spero during my next trip to San Francisco!

Hotel Spero, Uber and Walking Recommended
The room is smaller than the picture depicted, but the city view is worth it just for a few extra dollars (especially being in San Francisco given these type of prices). The management was nice and welcoming, the hotel room was quiet, but the bed was a bit hard. The shower doesn't make a rattling noise and we didn't have to wait a while for the elevators. We enjoyed the fact that the hotel was at the corner of the street and we parked in the parking structure next to it WITHOUT in and out privileges. We ubered to everywhere we went and we'd highly recommend it. Ubering was cheap in San Francisco which saved us from the Valet Parking and having to drive somewhere and pay a parking fee at the destination. We also enjoyed how close everything was. Union Square, Chinatown, Powell Street was just a few blocks from the hotel. Be cautious about the homeless people in downtown because there are a lot. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Spero. It has a more old type of architecture with a modern look that felt welcoming. We were able to sightsee within walking distance from Union Square to Pier 39, Uber to the Golden Gate Bridge for good prices, go bar hopping on Powell Street, and enjoy the scenery of San Francisco.

From entering the lobby to check out, this hotel stay was one of the best!. The reception desk staff was warm and greeted us very nicely! Our room was very well appointed. The pillows were fabulous. We had an issue with the heater/thermostat, and were immediately moved to another room. The restaurant downstairs, was very good and convenient. The food is good, staff is friendly and reasonably priced.Easy walk from Powell Bart station. Will definitely stay here again and would recommend it!

Great personal touch
Hotel Spero was excellent and I am already planning my next stay. I was attending a conference at a large hotel chain’s location across the street and Hotel Spero was refreshing to come back too instead of the boring spaces across the street
