I always stay at this hotel when I travel to Chicago. It's location is superb, very close to the trains, buses, water taxis or just plain walking. The shopping is very close and restaurants and Rush street are just within it's doors. The staff is amazing, attentive and the hotel is clean and quiet. Love the views, wine reception is... More

We always stay at a Kimpton Hotel when we can because of our dog and cat. They treat us and them like royalty. The Monaco has a very good location and lovely rooms. Going to two other Kimptons in Miami at the end of the summer. Can't wait!

We arrived late at night due to a substantial delay in our train from San Francisco, but was still greeted by a friendly receptionist who completed check-in procedures quickly and effectively. We had paid extra for a riverside view and was given a room on the 12th floor. We really didn't know what to expect from the advertised seating areas... More

My fiance and I spent a week in Chicago for his birthday, and after reading a number of reviews on Tripadvisor, we selected Hotel Monaco. From the very first moment we arrived, we were catered to. The man at the door, Antonio, was friendly and courteous and KNOWLEDGEABLE. He understood our frayed nerves after six hours of holiday/rush hour driving.... More

We stayed here after the Navy Pier July 4th fireworks and enjoyed our experience. We had a river view room near the top of the hotel that included 2 window box seating areas. The window boxes are a fun place to sit and view the activity below. Service was attentive and the staff was helpful. Location just one block off... More

Very rarely do you stay at a place and your room looks like the pictures on the hotel site. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in and the room was the exact replica of the website. Clean, friendly staff, great food. Try the PB&J for breakfast!

Positive reviews on just about everything but the final bill and treatment at the front desk with trying to resolve the issue. A room service charge appeared on my statement, which was not mine (I did not order room service, nor was I in the room when it was charged). I brought it to the attention of the front desk... More
