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!

"Great location and now new look!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 18, 2019 NEW
Spero (old Serrano) now has a revamped look but still has a great location! The rooms are very nice and you can barely hear the city noise when you go to bed. I did like the “complimentary amenities” until I found out I was getting charged nightly rates for them (including WiFi which I didn't need) tea and coffee stations and the bottle! It would have been better if they had explained these charges up front. Provide options to opt out of these things or select “a la cart” amenities to vary these costs. It was a good value for San Francisco comparable prices but I didn't like these extra charges one bit.

Clean rooms and friendly service... Liked how the windows could be opened to let fresh air into the room... USB chargers at both bedside lights was a nice feature... Discovered there was a fridge, which made keeping our doggy bag from dinner fresh for the next day's lunch...

Good location, mere blocks from the Powell St. bart station and Union Square. Nice room, tastefully decorated, good mattress, big shower. Location is great to do every part of the city by walking or taxi.

The staff was excellent and took very good care of us during our stay. Our room had a very relaxing feel and the decor was lovely. The service at Jasper's was great and the staff remembered us after one visit. I would recommend Spero and Jasper's to anyone.
