So, I've said this before - but we were looking for dog friendly places due to our yellow lab. This turned out to be why the Monaco in Chicago saved our trip. We booked the Monaco Chicago through USAA Travel - which - WORD OF WARNING - CONFIRM EVERY RESERVATION YOU MAKE THROUGH USAA WITH THE HOTEL. We show up,... More

I stayed here with my four teenagers in July, and it was fantastic. The location was great-- just blocks from the L, and a short walk to Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Architectural Boat Tour, Art Museum and more. The staff was funny, friendly and helpful. I miss the morning coffee which was just perfect, and the hosted wine reception each... More

Returned 7/27 from 5 nights at Monaco. Awesome location--1 block N & 1 block E from the State/Lake Orange stop on the CTA. These are small blocks, not like NYC. 1 block from S Michigan Ave. & Wacker. Our King River view room was on the 9th floor exactly as requested. The window seat, although high off the floor, was... More

Overall, for the price, this is a very good hotel. The location is extremely central to shopping and sights. Service was excellent. The room design in my room was a bit funny - the bathroom door swung open into the main hallway in a way that made it awkward if you didn't keep the door all the way open or... More

The hotel Monaco Chicago is centrally located very close to the river in Chicago. This is a great location that makes it easy to get to everything in Chicago. I had a great experience. The room was clean, roomy, comfortable, and had a great view. The wi-fi was fast and free. Best of all, they provide free loaner bikes (and... More

This place I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Located just a block from the Magnificent Mile and a short walk from the Blue line from Ohare airport, the location is amazing. The hotel offers a wine reception each night and complimentary bike loaners. The rooms are charming, with double window seats...complete with pillows and a gorgeous view... More

Room 1012 is a nice sized room, with a single window – it has a wide window seat, but at 5 foot 2inches, I needed to stand on a chair to be able to get on to it! The view is of the Church of Christ, the river and Trump Tower, and it was lovely to sit there as evening... More

I won't talk about design (and let's be clear, I don't like it). 24 hour room service is only meaningful if there are options other than a hamburger. Breakfast should be an option prior to 7:30, the functionally earliest one can have oatmeal at this hotel. It is perhaps possible that they are trying to save you from yourself, because... More

We've stayed at many places near Chicago's Magnificent Mile. We will only stay at the Monaco on our future visits. Over the weekend we stayed at the Monaco for our 4th time and see no reason to look further for our future visits. Very friendly staff, great location, and beautiful/clean rooms. Some reviews have been critical of the furnishings. We... More

When I walked into my suite yesterday I was positively floored with the cosmetic beauty, the vintage charm, the romantic pillows perched on the windowsills for comfy reading and city watching and the size of my huge garden tub for two. I was celebrating my birthday weekend here in Chicago and it was absolutely heavenly being able to admire the... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
