1.98 miles awaySan Francisco, CA0.9 miles to city center4.0-star Hotel Class4.0-star Hotel ClassSituated within walking distance of Union Square and Chinatown in San Francisco, Hotel Spero is ideally located for both business and leisure travelers. Originally opened as the Hotel Californian in 1923, the hotel changed hands several times, operating at one point as the city's only temperance hotel (or one that does not serve alcohol) from 1935 to 1978. Today, the historic hotel once again serves libations at its on-site restaurant and bar, Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen. Recent guests had high praise for the eatery's "excellent" food, but some mentioned that the service was a bit slow. Others said that the 236 guest rooms were on the smaller side – standard rooms start at 240 square feet – but all come with flat-panel TVs, stocked minibars, iHome docking stations, Frette linens and double, queen-sized or king-sized beds, depending on the room. There's also a 24-hour fitness center and 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space. While many visitors appreciated the complimentary coffee served in the Italian-styled lobby, others warned to watch for hidden fees, especially the additional nightly "urban fee," which covers the lobby's coffee service, as well as Wi-Fi access and weekday town car transfers to the Financial District.
