Fabulous 8.6 From 1,931 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Stylish suite, good location. Very pleased.
Very nicely remodelled hotel. Had a gorgeous, spacious room with stylish decor. Bathroom was enormous and in excellent condition. Everything looked new. The view was uninspiring, but really, who cares? Location was pretty much perfect, just a few mins from Union Square. For reference, anywhere in or around Union Square will have homeless people, but it wasn’t particularly bad here. The parking garage is literally next door and $39 per night. Drive straight in rather than valet park to avoid a ~$55/night charge.
Feraz, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
The hotel is very clean and ideally placed for Union Square. For food, we recommend the Cheesecake Factory on the top floor of Macy’s. You can easily get to Fisherman’s Wharf in one direction, or Oracle Park in the other direction with no hassle. The cable car also passes nearby. The only downside, as mentioned in other reviews, is the number of homeless people in the vicinity. On one occasion a homeless person wandered Into the lobby of the hotel, and you could tell from the doorman’s reaction that it was a common occurrence. Homelessness is an issue in all cities, but in SF they seem in a much worse mental and physical condition, and walk the streets in a zombified state. In the nearby Tenderloin district, which we viewed from a bus tour, the homeless situation was significantly worse, and something that San Francisco needs to address far better.

Great hotel near Union Square
Hotel Spero is a great hotel, my room was clean and modern. It's very close to Union Square but be careful not to go into the Tenderloin area as it's just a block or so away (do NOT turn right when you leave the hotel). My room was very comfortable, only small issue was that I found the walls to be a little thin, so I'd advise to bring earplugs or have a white noise app on your phone to hand so that you can sleep through the night. I don't really recommend the hotel's restaurant, it's a very noisy sports bar which doesn't fit in with the rest of the hotel.

SF break
One bedroom suite was big enough to give us room to chill out in when not out and about. Bathroom layout needs revisiting, tiny sink area with no room for products and door opened across it. Change the sink and the towel rack location and make it a double sink. Shower head had a small leak from the connection pipe when you changed jet type. Smart TVs in living room and bedroom, yet they are locked down to some archaic hotel system. Allow people to hook up their devices so they can watch Netflix etc. It's San Francisco, height of tech... Great location for Union Square and easily accessible. Would definitely stay again if they sorted the few minor issues out.

Great hotel
Great hotel, very comfortable. The area can be a little dicey with all the homeless but it’s in a good location to get buses, trains and cable cars.

Very good 8.0
Overall a pleasent stay, rooms were clean and a good location. Had issues with the air con fan which took 2 reminders and 2 days to fix and ongoing issues with the magnetic keys. Can’t recommend Jasper’s for breakfast. It lacks friendliness and atmosphere.

Cute Boutique Hotel
Loved the decor in this hotel. Rooms are small but make good use of space. More of a walk to tourist attractions like Fisherman’s Warf than I realized (almost 2 miles to walk) but doable. Visited during COVID and hotel was clean and appropriate safety measures were in place.
