We LOVED this hotel. My main concern when staying in hotels is cleanliness and I have to say that this hotel room was spotless. While the room was on the smaller side, it is a boutique hotel and the small size was not at all a problem for us. The window seats are AMAZING. We found ourselves sitting and looking... More

I stayed at the Kimpton Monaco in Chicago while attending a conference. It was a wonderful respite from the busy-ness of the conference. More than that, Matthew (front desk supervisor) and every single staff person made me feel welcomed and well cared for. I was greeted each time I entered and departed the premises, encouraged to attend the afternoon wine... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Chicago Hotel Monaco! It was even better than our first stay if that is possible. The people working there are a joy to deal with. Very helpful with all concerns or questions. The hotel is in a perfect location for shopping, sight seeing, restaurants and great walks.... More

A Kimpton Hotel, known for its service. The Hotel is at amazing location and stones throw from Chicago River and Cloud Gate. The Hotel staff was helpful but the rooms were pretty small. I have one complaint however regarding the Breakfast: It included just a Toast, an apple and a cup of tea. Since the Breakfast was included in the... More

My family visited Chicago (April 2014) for the weekend. We had a wonderful experience at the Hotel Monaco. The hotel is well located to walk everywhere we wanted to go (Institute of Art, American Girl store, etc.) The desk staff whet out of their way to make us (including my children) feel welcome. They were able to arrange a room... More

I loved the unique decor, friendly staff, convenient location, and the reasonable price. Our room was spacious, beds were comfortable and my son loved the huge, cushioned window seat with a partial view of the river. The complimentary wine hour offered each day, as well as coffee in the lobby each morning, upped the "fun quotient" of our stay. Would... More

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco last week for a very short business trip; 1 night. I found the location to be conveniently located and the staff I encountered to be friendly and accomodating. My father lives in Milwaukee, but was unable to drive down, so he took the train. In looking for directions to the Union Station, Frances at... More

Hotel Monaco is an absolute jewel located conveniently to restaurants, Michigan Ave, and transportation on Wabash near Wacker Dr. I held a meeting for a small executive group with people from all parts of the US and we were very satisfied with the service and accommodations. Since the meeting was informal, I decided to rent a suite and hold the... More

Great hotel, center of everything, very cozy and clean, friendly staff and loved the wine happy hour! My only complaint would be the "very runned down" restaurant. The chairs are old and disgusting and the food was horrible. They should really put some money into updating the restaurant because sometimes people don't want to leave the hotel to eat!
