    Hotel Spero

    San Francisco, CA
    0.9 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class

    Situated 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.

Guest rooms cater to business and leisure travelers alike with high-speed internet access (for a fee), LCD TVs, iPod docking stations and minibars. Recent guests said that the decor is nothing to write home about, but that the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows were breathtaking – request a room on a higher floor to truly take advantage of the scenery. Meanwhile, the contemporary American cuisine served at the hotel's Michelin-star rated restaurant garners praise as well. If you're only looking for a drink, the hotel's on-site Bar 888 keeps the grappa (its specialty) flowing.What's more, if you're a member of the IHG rewards program, you can earn or redeem points for staying here.

    The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    This trendy hotel enjoys a central location that guests love, merely two blocks west of Union Square. This property certainly has the "wow" factor: The Clift's decor is best described as a mish-mash of styles, with vastly differing furnishings and artwork contrasting so heavily that it works. But guests have mixed feelings – like any work of art, you either love it or you hate it. Some travelers describe the Clift as tasteful and hip, while others feel that it's too swanky for its own good and that the high room rates are a direct result. The guest rooms are much more demure, dressed in purple and cream hues and outfitted with, flat-screen TVs, honor bars and Bose sound systems. (The hotel also provides in-room spa treatments and 24-hour room service.) Should guests prefer to embrace the hotel's sense of style, consider doing so with a drink in hand at the Redwood Room.

    Located near Union Square in downtown San Francisco, The Marker oozes with style.

Visitors are also fond of the complimentary morning coffee and evening wine receptions hosted in the lobby. And those with four legged friends needn't leave them at home. The hotel not only has designated pet-friendly rooms but leaves water bowls scattered throughout the property in case your pup gets thirsty.

    "Lovely" is the word travelers often use when describing The Warwick San Francisco, and after taking a peek inside this boutique hotel a few blocks from Union Square, it's easy to see why. Each room features a repurposed antique headboard, an antique armoire and photos of San Francisco dating back to the turn of the century. Accommodations are also outfitted with more contemporary amenities like minifridges and flat-screen Samsung TVs. Plus, some even feature a window bench –perfect for observing the bustling scene below. Reviewers mentioned that the Warwick's location puts you within easy reach of some of the city's best eateries, but if you want to stay close to the hotel, you'll also find a restaurant and bar on the property. The BOTA restaurant serves Spanish-style tapas, while The European bar features (surprise!) mostly European spirits blended into inventive cocktails. While recent travelers were generally pleased with the quaint and charming hotel, especially the staff, they did have one gripe: the valet parking fee. The cost is $52 a night, with unlimited in-and-out privileges.
