from Hotel Spero
Check-In: 3:00pm Check-Out: 12:00pm
Hotel Spero is the perfect starting point for your San Francisco adventure. Our city is a thriving center of history and tradition since its maritime trade and the gold rush. If you’re a visitor, you’ll appreciate how San Francisco has evolved, preserving its past while remaining at the forefront of modern culture.

Union Square, once used as support for the Union Army during the Civil War, gave it a namesake to honor. Spend a day there shopping, just steps away from our sophisticated hotel. During your stay, walk around the Theater District, built in the 1920’s amongst theaters whose roots started in vaudeville shows. These preserved theaters continue in their entertainment legacies today. Your visit to San Francisco wouldn’t be complete without mention of vibrant China Town, where a stroll down Ross Alley shows off fortune cookies being produced by the hundreds.

Endless settings are San Francisco quintessentials, none more so than the city’s bay. Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf and Embarcadero bring you to the countless attractions at the water’s edge. Our monumental Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, “the rock”, where none have escaped, are experiences which make San Francisco one of America’s most fascinating cities.

Whatever brings you to San Francisco, Serrano welcomes you to the city’s most attended neighborhood and a preferred destination in California. Our distinct hotel is an ideal location near shopping, theaters, museums, and tourist destinations, the setting matched by our fine amenities and recognized Spero hospitality. Guests can rest in Spero's long-standing reputation for outstanding service and atmosphere. Our knowledgeable concierge staff is available to assist you with reservations to nearby events, directions and acquiring tickets for our packaged stays.

Stay at Hotel Spero, where you’ll discover something new on every corner in San Francisco!

"One of the most beautiful places to stay in the city!"

My husband, daughter, and I spent two nights in San Francisco and this was our first time staying at Hotel Spero. The location was great, making it easy to sightsee around the city. The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Valet was also pretty quick to retrieve our car, which is not something I have experienced before in San Francisco. We will definitely be staying here again!

"Lovely and convenient"

I had a nice stay here. The hotel is located in a convenient place for transport links, or if you're up for walking places that's also doable - just wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for the steep hills of San Francisco! The rooms were really nice - spacious and comfortable beds. The air con units are fairly loud to keep on all night and it's also loud with the windows open given the hotels location in the centre and lots of horns beeping, but that can't really be helped. The lifts were quick too which is needed for a tall hotel. The connected restaurant (Jasper's) is also really nice, we had dinner there one night and received good service, good atmosphere and reasonable prices. The reason for not giving 5 stars is mainly down to the front desk. The staff are really nice but just a little slow for a fairly busy hotel. There was only ever one person on and we never sensed any efficiency/speed. Our room wasn't ready even though we were there after check in time, their systems weren't working so they copied our credit card which didn't fill us with confidence, especially as the lady didn't say it with much reassurance/confidence, and we didn't get our welcome pack. Small touches that wouldn't stop us from recommending or staying here again.

Great place to stay, except for the amount of intimidating Homeless people in the vicinity. The Hotel is lovely and clean, with friendly helpful staff, and particularly good value for money. It is in a really central location, but unfortunately that comes with intimidating homeless people in the neighborhood.
