Kimpton never seems to disappoint and this location is no exception. Absolutely perfect location in the heart of the city. Head down the block to Hubbard street and El Hefe taqueria for some great atmosphere and drinks. Eat in the restaurant attached to the hotel and don't miss the pancakes for breakfast. Best I have ever had.

A terrific location! So close to State Street shopping and to the theaters. The room was spacious and the bed so comfortable. The staff was friendly and the lobby was festive. It was perfect for our holiday girls weekend.

Lovely hotel. Front desk so accommodating . The rooms are pretty especially facing the street. Beautiful window seats and very comfy beds. Loved the bar . The housekeeping is a little lacking but not terrible . I would def stay again.

I stayed here over the recent Thanksgiving holiday. The location was very convenient. This is a well-maintained property, with fantastic customer service from all the staff that we encountered. The common areas are clean, quiet, and elegant. The room was similarly clean and elegant. I would stay here again, though the regular prices are a bit steep. (We got a... More

Just returned from a 5 night break at the Hotel Monaco and what a fantastic hotel it is! Rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated with all the amenities you need! The location of the hotel is extremely central for both downtown Chicago and the magnificent mile, with shops, restaurants, cafes and areas of interest on your doorstep. What makes... More

I loved this hotel! I felt like a queen staying here! It felt very posh and very relaxing. I loved the decor and extremely spacious rooms and high ceilings. The staff were delightful! The view from my room was a brick wall but I didn't mind too much since I was here for business. I would most definitely stay here... More

honestly, the only thing holding me back from a 5 star review is I'm a pool girl. Other than that, this place is 5 star quality. Service, décor, ambiance, location...all superior. Our room, 403, had a lousy view but we really didn't care as we are Chicago suburbanites and were more interested in access and comfort. Staff is crazy pleasant.... More

Anne D - Thanks for taking the time to give us a great review! We're sorry you didn't have a pool to enjoy during your stay (old buildings are a gem, but a little hard to modify like that!), but we're happy that we hit 5 stars in all the other areas. We'd love to see you the next time... More

The Hotel Monaco is centrally located near the theater district, near Michigan Avenue shopping, and not far from the Art Institute. The Mediterranean Suite that we chose in the Chicago Wabash Street location are extremely comfortable and very well decorated. We had previously stayed at a Kimpton property in San Francisco across from Fisherman's Wharf called the Argonaut located at... More

This is the 2nd Kimpton Hotel I have stayed at and will certainly stay here or look for another Kimpton Hotel in the future.
