A record number of Condé Nast Traveler readers weighed in and declared The Marker Hotel and Hotel Spero as the #1 and #2 Hotels in San Francisco for 2020!  This is the second consecutive year that Hotel Spero has been honored as a top 5 hotel in San Francisco.  We are truly thankful for the support of the readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said Benjamin Malmquist, Area Managing Director. 

“The boutique hotels offer cleanliness, service levels, meeting facilities, and on-site restaurants that are best in class.  Hotel Spero completed a full top to bottom renovation in 2018 and chose to focus hospitality services on mindfulness, philanthropy, and sustainability.  And with the desirable address in the Theatre District of San Francisco, just steps from Union Square, The Marker Hotel offers the perfect location to experience all that the City by the Bay offers.
