We had a great girl's weekend at this hotel!! The window seat overlooking the river was amazing...at night it was so beautiful. The room was nice and there was a great wine hour each evening. Location was good, walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. And we got a goldfish in our room to keep us company!! A great... More

I usually stay at Kimpton hotels for business but this timeless a birthday get away for my 13 year old. When we checked in I quietly asked for any free upgrade they could give us for her. We then went off to explore. When we returned to check in they had upgraded us to a corner suite on the 12th... More

This is a fun little boutique style hotel plunked right in the best part of downtown. Wine reception from 5:00-6:00 is fun but the window seats on the river view side are out of this world! Service has been oustanding. I highly recommended staying here.

The Hotel Monaco is a nice downtown hotel that is close to the metro and bus lines and our room had a terrific river view. The plus side is location, view, cleanliness and decor. The negative side is the fact that our next door neighbor had a very yappy dog and the fact that our room keys needed to be... More

The room is cute; they have fun bath robes, cute decor. I have stayed here twice and one room had a huge bathroom with glass doors. Second room had a shower curtain and small vanity, but it has a chaise. My room service came quickly. There was a picket going on out front of disgruntled workers on the day I... More

Stayed here with a girlfriend for a fun weekend shopping trip. I cannot say enough great things about it! Every employee we interacted with was friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, right next to the river and the magnificent mile is just steps away. Our room had the most beautiful decor I've seen in a hotel. The beds were... More

I never write reviews but felt that this experience and hotel deserved a shout out. Recently organized a weekend in Chicago for my boyfriends birthday. I mentioned this on the phone when asking about an early check in and when we arrived, we found out they had put aside a wonderful room on their top floor for us and allowed... More

The hotel itself was lovely! Although they didn't have my reservation that I had made from Hotels.com back in January of 2015. This doesn't seem to be a fault of Hotel Monaco, rather from Hotels.com. However, the staff at the Hotel Monaco was able to get me and my friend into a room that night (they were sold out of... More

Had a wonderful stay here last week. From the booking to our final good bye, everything was seamless and perfect. My mother booked and forgot to mention she had AAA. We called back (sometimes you expect to be pushed to a different room or be told that there is no discount for memberships) and they said no problem and promptly... 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.
