I had a wonderful experience at the Hotel Monaco!! I worked with Cody Umbach to reserve a block of rooms for my co-workers and I for a 3 day business trip. Cody was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with! The staff at Hotel Monaco was very polite and did whatever they could to make your stay more enjoyable.... More

If impeccable service is what you crave, look no further than the Hotel Monaco! We were greeted like VIPs for our recent anniversary weekend and the concierge Sheila was incomparable. The room was beautiful and well appointed, including a magnificently styled headboard and marble counters in the bath. Great use of space in furniture placement as well. Generous closets &... More

A lovely boutique-style hotel that's a short walk to the train station. A great location just west of Michigan Ave. Convenient for shopping and dining. First class helpful staff! They got us a reservation at an excellent Italian restaurant for that evening! Wonderful extras like wine/bites, coffee each morning and mid-afternoon. Although we live in Cincinnati now, we grew up... More

We love the Hotel Monaco in Chicago. All of the staff are so wonderful and make us feel like old friends. We had a great room with a sitting area and view with window seats. THis is the only place we stay in CHicago and will continue to be so.

Lovely weekend get away with the husband. Stayed at the Monaco in a room on the 8th floor with a phenomenal view of the city and Trump Tower. Divine window seat in the room to boot. A great bet for Chicago.

This hotel has my favorite location in Chicago. It's close to the Magnificent Mile, but misses a lot of the street noise. The river views are great and it's worth upgrading to a river view room. Rooms that face Wabash may get some noise from the El, although those trains don't run all night.. The rooms are good sized, reasonably... More

My husband and I don't stay anywhere else in SLC if we can help it. The Hotel Monaco has nothing but the best service, chic yet comfy accommodations, and the perfect location. I recommend it for romance or business - you can't go wrong. The restaurant and wine hour are too good to be true.

I must preface by saying I have not stayed at this hotel, but booked it for a trip in December because I have stayed at Hotel Monacos previously and really enjoy them. Had some confusion when someone else in our party booked another hotel as a surprise and was forced to call Hotel Monaco less than 24 hrs before to... More

bschmitt8 - Well it's not often that we get a lovely review from someone who didn't even get the chance to stay, but we're so happy that you felt our genuine Kimpton care even when you weren't able to join us. We're also happy that the experience led you to the Monaco Philly, and we hope that we'll get to... More

When you walk in the front desk treats you well. You pass the bikes you can borrow to go go around town. The rooms are sizeable - plenty of room to spread out. If you do the Kharma program, you get to "raid the mini bar" which is fun and wifi is free with your email address only. Great amenities... More
