We just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Monaco in downtown Denver, CO. Just delightful. Comfortable and sophisticated interior design. Friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic attached restaurant Panzano, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel is centrally located and a short taxi or Uber ride from most everything. We especially liked the large, cozy "living room" in the... More

Spent several days at the Monaco. Pleasant hotel for either a business or leisure trip. Eclectic room decor consistent with other Kimpton properties. Very well located in central Denver near the 16th street mall. Outstanding restaurant in the hotel.

I was recently in Denver for business and stayed at this hotel. I love Kimptons, but this experience was not the best. The hotel itself is beautiful, centrally located, and my room was very comfortable. However, I had a few annoyances that left me leaving a less than excellent rating: 1) When I arrived at the hotel, I was early... More

This is the second Monaco hotel I've been to; the other in DC. This was no disappointment. The hotel room is spacious with tall ceilings and interestingly designed. It has a mixed Mandarin - Western Cowboy feel notably in the lobby. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Additionally, the attached restaurant (Panzano) is pricey, but we ate one dinner... More

The bed was comfortable and the service was great. The room we stayed in was pleasant. We enjoyed the evening wine complements from the hotel at the free happy hour. The dining experience in hotel is up to standard. When comparing apples to Oranges it has its own unique value. We were close to the shopping malls on 16th. The... More

This was a great stay! The location is perfect, we were able to walk almost anywhere we wanted to - Coors Field (Rockies) Pepsi Center (Avs/Nuggets) and plenty of restaurants. The staff at the hotel was friendly and efficient.

Very friendly service, especially if you have pets and/or children, which aren't always treated the best in hotels! Loved the glass of wine and Wii games set up in the main lounge from 4-6pm every day and my children loved the fact that they brought a pet fish up to the room for them - and I loved the yoga...

A big snow storm was coming in, and we had tickets for Celtic Thunder, so we booked the Monaco. This is a great hotel in downtown Denver, an easy walk to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and with its own great Italian restaurant. Plus, they have a wine tasting hour every night at 5:00 in their friendly lobby... More

This property DEFINITELY caters to the business traveler who is either on foot or has company money to spend on parking/valet. Upon check in, you will be asked if you want a key to the mini bar. Say yes if you want access to the fridge. This is in a historical building so the rooms are on the small side,... More
