Where the Well Read Rest Their Head

Travelers looking for a good read on the road can now enjoy the convenience of the Monticello Inn's uniquely-designed Book Honor Bar. By partnering with San Francisco's Union Square Borders Books & Music flagship store, the Monticello Inn has created an in-room honor bar featuring a variety of books available for guests to purchase.

Monticello Inn unveiled its Book Honor Bar program in the hotel's 20 renovated Jefferson Suites in January 2001. The Book Honor Bar menu features 10 paperback books chosen from the New York Times, Oprah Book Club or Borders Books & Music bestseller lists.

Guests choosing to purchase a book from the honor bar will be billed upon checkout. Twenty-five percent of each book purchased in the Book Honor Bar will be donated to the San Francisco Public Library through the Friends & Foundation of the Library.
