I stayed here in September for a business trip and was attending a conference at the nearby Hyatt Grand Regency. Hotel Monaco is not just a place to stay, but it's an experience and one of the best I've had in Chicago. Here are some highlights: -Spacious, modern, and comfortable rooms. Mine had a great window bench seat with a... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Some of the highlights: --large, attractive room with non cookie-cutter decor --staff who go out of the way to be friendly and helpful --comfy beds --clean rooms --perfect location --nice restaurant --great shower water pressure! There were a few minor downsides, among them the not very charming view of the parking garage across the... More

We visited 'the Windy City' a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a great hotel and our room was excellent. A very good size with a seating area and a window seat looking over the street to the river. The furniture was modern and the bed very comfortable. The staff were very helpful (especially the doorman... More

We stayed here for the weekend and had the most amazing service. Everyone had a smile on their face and was nothing but friendly! The room was clean, comfortable, and fairly quiet. The morning coffee hour is terrific. We did not make it to the wine hour but that is a nice extra. It was great of the concierge to... More

The Monaco in Chicago lived up to the high expectations I have come to have for Kimpton properties. Our room with 2 queen beds was spacious enough. The staff was attentive and prompt when we needed anything. We also very much enjoyed the evening wine reception in the lobby. On our last day we had a big group brunch at... More

Big hotels are not my favorites but this smallish spot is near everything, right on the Chicago River. It's close to so much but not over the top expensive. I'd return in a minute if I didn't have family in the area who usually put us up. Service was superb with friendly staff up and down the line.

Read reviews on TripAdvisor for Hotel Monaco while planning a weekend trip to Chicago. Loved the idea of the fish bowl and wine hour, so I booked a room. I was not dissapointed! The rooms are so cozy and clean. Most comfortable bed. Staff was so genuinely friendly!! Wine hour in their comfy lobby was a great way to relax... More

Just returned from a week in Chicago. The first half of the week was for work and in a "work" hotel. The second half was personal and we spent it at the Monaco. While the first hotel was fine - everything was okay there was nothing of actual note to make you remember the hotel. Then we moved to the... More

What a special place! Old world charm meets new world amenities. In looking for an upscaled, downtown Chicago hotel and wanted something convenient to all the major shops, eateries and the lake, I found it all here. My room wasn't available at check-in, so I changed in the hotel restroom, left my luggage with the valet and went for a... More

I love the Kimpton hotels and this one did not disappoint. Quirky boutique style, comfortable bed, and excellent service. I would definitely return. The location was ideal. There is a wide range of restaurants and activities within walking distance. 7
