Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Abri

127 Ellis St., San Francisco, California 94102, USA See on Map

Near Union Square shops, theaters, and restaurants, this stylish hotel (formerly the Monticello Inn) offers small but well appointed rooms, and free morning coffee and newspapers in lobby.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Early 2018, the hotel will renovate the restaurant, giving it a new look, but not taking away the favorite dishes.


Guest rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and comfy bedding. Rooms boast a modern aesthetic, with bright colors and big windows.


Spacious bathrooms feature L'Occitane bath products, tiled walls and spacious sink areas.


The lobby has a modern feel, with a recessed fireplace and warm wood and stainless-steel accents, along with a wall of floating iPads for guests' use.


Free gym facilities are available a block away at Abri's sister hotel, Villa Florence.


Puccini & Pinetti, an Italian restaurant next to the hotel, provides a lively bar scene and solid pasta and pizza dishes. They serve weekend brunch, lunch and dinner.


Grab a glass of wine or an aperitif at Puccini & Pinetti.


Getting Around

The hotel offers valet parking at a steep price. Save cash and take public transportation around town. Muni buses and trains, BART trains and the cable car all stop within a couple blocks, Walkers can easily explore downtown and beyond.


The outstanding Kin Khao (1-minute walk) might be the city's best Thai cuisine, with spicy housemade curries populating the menu. Enjoy an epic Sunday brunch at Farmerbrown (3-minute walk) where chicken and waffles, greens and hard cocktails pair well with the live musicians.


Hang out with cabaret singers at Feinstein's at the Nikko (1-minute walk). Enjoy a hard whiskey cocktail at Dirty Habit's industrial bar (5-minute walk).


Comfortable, with a kind staff, this centrally located property makes a dependable place to rest after a day of exploring the city.
