My husband booked a suite here for our one-year wedding anniversary. We live just outside the city, but a stay here made it seem so much more indulgent. It's a great location, and we took the El in, which is a short walk away. We were able to check into our suite, even though we were a couple hours early.... More

My girlfriend and I planned a trip to Chicago and she selected this hotel. I was beyond surprised to discover such an amazing gem of a hotel. As expected for a nicer hotel there was a doorman greeting everyone and helping with luggage. We entered in to a seemingly small lobby, until we saw the seating area with extremely high... More

I feel like you just cannot go wrong with a Kimpton Hotel. Chicago's Monaco is no exception. From the moment you enter the lobby you experience top notch exceptional service from everyone from the doorman to the front desk and housekeeping staff. My room was immaculate, large, quiet and extremely comfortable. Kimpton focuses on the small details and it shows,... More

I am a huge fan of Kimpton hotels, and this one has its own unique flair and flavor. Like all Kimptons, the staff goes out of their way to see the guest experience is extraordinary. I reserved a room facing the River. In the room there was a great window seat where we spent hours looking out at the city... More

I stayed here last month for a small conference. The room was very nice and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating. They had a wine reception in the evening about 5:00. It was about 2 blocks from Michigan Avenue. We were around several great restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel mid-week in August. The location was perfect for us, as we we were able to walk most places we wanted to go or take a short cab ride. The room was clean and seemed fairly recently updated and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was absolutely beautiful! It's a small boutique hotel where everyone makes you feel at home. The location was perfect (5 minute walk from bars/restaurants. Their complimentary wine hour from 5-6pm is such a great perk!
