Renovated in 2018, Hotel Spero combines the rich historical aspects of the original hotel design with unique elements that are true to the soul and spirit of San Francisco. Savor innovative American cuisine at Jasper’s, prepare a presentation at Jarvis’ Corner co-working space, or pamper your pet in our 236 spacious guest rooms and suites - all just two blocks away from world-famous Union Square.
Hotel Spero was named in honor of the philanthropic spirit of our former owner Lizzie Glide. Spero means “hope” in Latin, and hope is at the core of how we spread positive change through guest experience, philanthropy, sustainability and mindfulness. Like Lizzie, we do our part to spread hope through positive change.
