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.

The room was so small and outdated. The hotel is surrounded by homeless people and there is no parking garage. The room did not seen thoroughly cleaned. The mini fridge needed to be wiped down and the bathroom door knobs and light switches did too. The staff was nice, but for the price and location it’s not worth it.

My husband and I were traveling with the Anderson's during our stay at Hotel Spero. Our only dissatisfaction was the $68 charge I discovered on my credit card after we checked out. I called the hotel to inquire about the charge and was told it was an amenity fee for the wifi and $10 certificate for the restaurant they gave us. I even asked about any charges upon check out and was told only the 2 night stay. I would appreciate this charge taken off of my credit card.

If you are looking for a classic hotel with elegance cuteness and style this is the hotel. I really appreciated the customer service I received it was exceptional. The lobby and rooms are very well decorated. The hand sanitizing station and filtered water available for guests was a big plus!!
