Our Story

Our Story

A STORIED PAST. A SUNNY FUTURE.

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.

Spero Hotel OurStory Inspiration

Inspiration

Hotel Spero was named in honor of the philanthropic spirit of our former owner Lizzie Glide. Spero means “hope” in Latin, and hope is at the core of how we spread positive change through guest experience, philanthropy, sustainability and mindfulness. Like Lizzie, we do our part to spread hope through positive change.

Design Concept

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.
