Visited this past week for 3 nights and absolutely enjoyed it. Was here last winter and was not quite as enthused. I am chalking that up to the room we received each time, or possibly the hotel is in a constantly improving mode. (paint/touch ups etc.) Stayed in room 911 which was a corner mini suite with 4 window seats... More

I spent 4 nights at the Monaco in room 815, a very spacious room offering a view of Chicago's impressive skyline and 2 "meditation nooks." One (pictured) is as big as a double bed. If my children had been traveling with me, they most certainly would have played in the nooks and probably slept in them. Room 815 also has... More

Simply put, this hotel is fine. It's in a good location - close to transit, Millennium Park, restaurants, etc. The amenities are decent, and the room is clean and a good size. My only complaints with the room are that the bed was very uncomfortable, sagging terribly in the middle, and the shower made an awful squealing sound. The restaurant... More

A very convenient part of town located in the Loop District. Walking distance to Michigan Ave and the Art Institute of Chicago. Great restaurants to select from. This is another great Kimpton property.
