To honor our storied history in San Francisco, the renovation of Hotel Spero incorporated the original design components for inspiration. Guests will relax in modern comfort, while noticing the detailed design elements that call back to the original Spanish Colonial style building, which first housed the Hotel Californian in 1923. As the name of the property has changed over the years, the beautiful, light-infused spaces have retained the spirit and elegance of their original design, earning the Hotel Spero a coveted spot on the National Register of Historic Places in San Francisco. Hotel Spero blends unique San Francisco style with historical Spanish Colonial design. The lobby’s historic elements have been preserved and incorporated into the updated design, including hand painted ceiling beams, original marble floors, and decorative grillage. Our 236 rooms offer large windows with natural light, and are filled with soothing colors and patterns to reflect our positive message.

I stayed at The Hotel Spero with my girlfriend over New Years Eve-- The staff Daisy and Rodolfo were excellent and so accommodating--with the current climate-- they ensured we had a great room and brought tables and chairs to our suite so we could eat inside comfortably-- Beautiful rooms and antiquity restored and preserved in their lobby which I believe dates back to the 1920s when it was The Hotel California--- My thanks to the staff-- We will be back!

Hotel Spero is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at in San Francisco. I absolutely loved it. I stayed for 3 nights in December. It's a gorgeous hotel, in the perfect location just a short walk from union square, and the staff are so nice. Most importantly, I really appreciated how clean and safe it was to abide by covid-19 regulations. I felt very safe while they had sanitizing stations, you had to social distance inside the hotel, and you had to wear a mask in the public areas. They had holiday decorations all over the lobby which was so pretty! My room was so nice, spacious, and the bathroom lighting was AMAZING which is so rare to have in a hotel. I stayed in the Serenity Suite which also has a beautiful view of the city and it was very quiet. There is also a very convenient parking garage right next door if you plan to bring your car with you, although it's not apart of the hotel, it might as well could have been. It made it so easy to come and go as we pleased! I 100% recommend this hotel to anyone who plans to travel to San Francisco! It made my trip to San Francisco a wonderful trip. It will not disappoint.
