Such a Great Stay!12/16/2019

I chose Hotel Spero because it was close to the location I needed, and within my price range, and was so happy to be there. The room was clean and so very comfortable. All the staff were kind, helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!

Excellent Stay12/11/2019

The Hotel Spero is in a nice location downtown. Staff was so fantastic, attentive and friendly. The rooms were clean-very quite and beds were comfortable and we were able to sleep better than usual for a hotel stay. Overall we were satisfied with our one night stay and would recommend to others.

Great Stay12/09/2019

We stayed at Hotel Spero for three nights and it was lovely! The room was spacious, very clean, very quiet, the bed was comfortable, it smelled fresh inside the room and in the hallways. Convenient location close to Union Square, Powel Station, Chinatown, some reviewers labeled the area seedy - well, homeless people are to be found everywhere in Downtown.. Highly recommended

Great Stay at a Boutique Hotel 11/13/2019

Wife and I had a great stay. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you could want in a hotel suite. The bathroom itself was incredibly spacious and had a shower like no other. View was astonishing. I would definitely stay here again.
