If the walls of the Monte Cristo could talk, what stories they could tell, for this remarkable building has been a part of San Francisco since 1875. Located in the exclusive and popular Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, offering guests classic European style, comfort & privacy, Monte Cristo is perhaps the oldest original hospitality structure in San Francisco. Built as a bordello and saloon, it served as a speakeasy in the 1920s. When the great fire swept the city after the 1906 earthquake, homes were put to the torch on Van Ness Avenue to create a firebreak, and the Saloon not only survived, it served as a refuge for the newly post-quake homeless. Today, Monte Cristo serves as one of the top boutique hotels San Francisco.
