The Hotel Monaco makes you feel like you are staying at a world class hotel without world class prices. The location is wonderful with all the charm of Old Town right outside your hotel door.

Dear smnlefty, While I'm happy you didn't reach strike three, I'd like to apologize for what was clearly an off night. It's our goal to ensure that every guest preference is followed up on.

I knew there was a Kimpton hotel in the area so I called and in less than 5 minutes got a reservation for that evening at the Monaco. They also connected me to a cab company that actually answered the phone (I... More

Welove the Kimpton chain and always choose to stay in a Kimpton when we can. the design is always modern and the interiour decorater adds all the right touches. The wine reception is always grat, always good wines at the kimpton and nice to meet other guests and their dogs. The rooms are large amd beds very comfortable.
