Media Inquiry

Social Media Influencers

Thank you for your interest in collaborating with Hotel Spero. Please complete the form below to provide us with the information needed to consider your proposal.

Due to a high volume of inquiries, we only accept proposals via this format and recommend including as much relevant information as possible so we can efficiently and accurately gauge whether your proposal aligns with our strategic initiatives. Proposals for collaboration must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date of the visit/activation. Proposals presented with less lead time cannot be accommodated. Collaborations are always based on trade, depend on hotel availability and require clear, agreed upon deliverables from both parties.

Journalist Inquiry

We regularly work with journalists on assignment or visiting to research future story ideas. Based on availability, we can provide media rate or hosted accommodations.

To consider hosting queries, we need to learn about you and the story you are working on so, we invite you to fill out the form below. It is helpful if you include as much relevant information possible, particularly with regard to your story angle, what you would like to experience at the hotel and how the hotel is likely to fit into coverage you generate.

We know assignments can pop up unexpectedly but would appreciate if queries are submitted at least 72 hours prior to the date of your stay. We may not be able to accommodate visits with less lead time – and, since the hotel often fills up fast, we are more likely to accommodate requests with more advance notice.
