Overview

Centrally located in Union Square
Standard rooms are small
Situated within walking distance of Union Square and Chinatown in San Francisco, Hotel Spero boasts an ideal location 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 at times. Others said that the 236 guest rooms and suites were on the smaller side – standard rooms start at 210 square feet – but all come with flat-panel TVs, minifridges, bathrobes and free Wi-Fi access. There are also a 24-hour fitness center and 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space. While many past visitors appreciated the complimentary coffee served in the Italian-inspired lobby, others warned to watch for hidden fees.
