Hotel AbRi - both vibrant and warm - is at the center of all the fun of San Francisco. You can disappear into the tall orange leather chairs around the fireplace, or knock out those emails at the business center – it’s just off to the side of the lobby, but close enough that you won’t feel lonely. And when you're ready to venture out, the folks at the front desk are personable and fun and know the city’s best kept secrets.
The bed covers, couches and carpets sport adventurous, modern patterns – a nice counterpoint to the classic dark wood doors and smoky glass in the bathrooms, and the moss green and light brown walls.
Here on business? The AbRi’s meeting room is as chic and warm as the rest of the building, with oversized frosted doors, a generous conference table, and room to walk around. There’s even a tiny lounge area off to one side for a private talk or a little down time.
Mod style, convivial mood
Stop by the lobby late afternoons for a "Daily Rush Hour shot": weekdays it’s juice and an energy boost (guava juice and yohimba bark powder on Wednesdays, Ginseng and Lemonade on Thursdays). On weekends, you can add a shot of Svedka vokda. It’s all on the house.
And if you left your laptop charger at home, the AbRi's Tech Menu offers tech items on loan or for purchase.
Lunch, dinner, weekend brunch and room service are all available from Puccini & Pinetti – easygoing Italian food, and a fun, very popular happy hour. Hotel AbRi also delivers breakfast in bed for those who just can't be bothered to leave the comforts of their wonderful room.
Union Square offers everything from lobster pot pies at über-plush Michael Mina to Irish piano bars.
Guest passes for the nearby Active Sports Club (indoor heated pool, massage rooms, strength training and Pilates studio) are available.
The AbRi is on Ellis Street – just removed from the sometimes over-the-top bustle of Market Street and Union Square, but an easy stroll to both. Famous San Francisco eateries like Ame and Michael Mina are within walking distance, and everything from sushi to Irish Pub fare (and fun) can be found in and around Union Square. If you want to check out Fisherman's Wharf - or just lean out of a cable car and make like Judy Garland - the Powell Street Cable Car is one block away.
