Lovely hotel07/17/2018

We had a wonderful stay at the Spero and I’d love to stay there again. They were friendly and eager to make our stay the best experience. We took our little dog and they welcome her with open arms. It’s a relaxed and friendly environment. It’s also convenient to be able to walk down to Jasper’s restaurant and have breakfast.

From the time we arrived, the staff at Hotel Spero was most helpful and friendly - providing guidance about maneuvering the transportation system. The lobby was beautiful and welcoming with newspapers, coffee and water provided. We loved Jasper's and had breakfast there every morning - and a late supper there as well.

I love the decor, location, and most of all the exceptional staff. When I visit San Francisco I always try to stay here for at least part of my trip. It’s so easy to relax in the lobby, enjoying the coffee that is provided and do a little people watching.

Nice Hotel In Good Location10/22/2017

The hotel is conveniently close to Union Square, Chinatown, restaurants, and shops. The check-out time is at noon instead of 11:00am, and they even let us check-out late and keep our luggage in the hotel for a few hours before our flight.
