We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel! The location was very central to the museums, shopping and restaurants. The employees were AMAZING, particularly Sheila and Rich! They were so nice and helpful. The wine in the evening was great. Price was fair for that area. Keep up the good work! There is no pool, by the way. Super clean... More

Absolutely perfect from the minute we pulled up. Antonio the door man introduced himself immediately, super polite and attentive immediately. David at the desk was spot on. Room was large, beautiful, clean, all amenities in their place and the large bed was fantastic. Every encounter over 4 days was above and beyond any other hotel experience. We had no problem...

Cute hotel! Clean & great location. Walking distance to the main sites. The staff was very accommodating. Our first room looked at a parking garage and the lady at the front desk changed our room without hassle for one with a view of the river- Ask for a river view room. The bench in the window is worth the upgrade!

I was normally a Marriott person until we tried a Monaco in Denver. That stay was outstanding so we tried the one in Chicago. We were not disappointed. The service was outstanding. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and spacious with tall ceilings. It looked like new. It also has a great location for... More

Normally, we stay at Hilton properties when we travel, but this time we decided to think out of the box and try this hotel....and wow were we glad we did! All the staff from the front desk to the custodial staff were well groomed and friendly....the hotel itself is decorated in a modern, eclectic style that I found very enjoyable... More

We recently visited and were celebrating a special occasion. I contacted the concierge at Hotel Monaco and between Sheila, Ericka, and Nicole, these 3 ladies worked so hard to arrange to have a cake and bottle of champagne delivered to our room. The timing was a little hairy because of when we checked in and the fact that I was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Monaco recently for 8 days and found it an excellent location to investigate many of Chicago's attractions. When we arrived they put us on the second floor, so the next day my wife talked to the front desk and we moved to the 9th floor with a great view of the river and... More

Fabulous service started the minute I set foot on the sidewalk in front of the hotel. The doorman was ridiculously cheerful and a pleasure to see, especially since I'd just received rather lack-luster service at another Chicago hotel, which I left to come to the Monaco. Mile-wide smiles continued from the front desk staff. Check-in was super fast, and I... More

My wife and I stayed at this Chicago hotel early in April 2015. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of hotels. Check-in and check-out were easy; the room was terrific: clean, spacious, well maintained; the hotel is well located to reach nearby attractions, shops and restaurants; and we loved the complimentary Wifi and happy hour. But... More

Great location, extremely welcoming staff, great amenities in room, and they'll loan you a goldfish for your stay. This is a fun chain, from the free wine and light appetizers served each night, to the loaner bicycle, to the fun animal print robes in the room, to the unique decor. The room had everything - choices for seating, a lighted... 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.
