Boasting a central location on Taylor Street near Union Square, the Spero Hotel, (formerly, the Serrano Hotel) offers a prime resting spot before exploring all that San Francisco has to offer. The city it at its fingertips being within two miles of PIER 39, Fisherman's Wharf and the Embarcadero. Chinatown and North Beach are within walking distance. 

Kick back after a day of adventuring at the on-property gastropub, Jasper's Corner Tap and Kitchen. The restaurant features 15+ beers on tap and casual American fare. The gym is open 24 hours for workout enthusiasts. Rooms are on the smaller side, yet cozy, and feature some city views. Frette linens and robes top off the experience at the property.

The hotel is pet-friendly and offers food, water bowls, treats and pick-up bags for your dog in the room during the stay.

From the press:
  • "Located at the intersection of tourist action and local hangouts, the beautifully appointed Serrano boasts amenities and luxury not usually available at a boutique urban Hotel (as in, a 24-hour fitness center with dry sauna)" -- Frommer's

It was a decent hotel, in a good location.

I do not see the point on charging an extra fee for coffee and newspapers. Doing that just cheapens the experience.
