In town to run the marathon. We stayed at Kimpton property (Hotel Serrano) in San Francisco...loved it so decided to stay here for our Chicago sojourn. Great location in the heart of the city. Walking distance to everything. Took the blue line in from O'Hare ($2). We asked for and received high floor (12) and had a comfortable west facing... More

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for the Chicago Marathon and found it to be convenient, comfortable, and very accommodating. Our first room was on the 2nd floor and fine, though a little too close to the street noise. So, on the second night, they happily moved us to the 12th floor, which had a great big room with little... More

We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at the Hotel Monaco in Chicago. It was a wonderful experience on every level, thanks to the superior service and attention that we received from the hotel staff and Mitchell Ray, the event manager. We cannot say enough about the hotel and Mitchell's amazing service. Every detail was checked carefully and the wedding was... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We got a good rate through hotwire. As it was my first time using hotwire I was unsure what sort of room we would get. I needn't have worried as we were given a really nice room. We got to the hotel early and our room wasn't ready.... More

We were thrilled with the Hotel with kudos to the staff. It is the best value and it is close to the Oriental Theatre.

We wanted a nice place to stay the night after dinner, theater, and my daughter's 21st birthday. This place certainly fit the bill. It was convenient to everything including the SouthShore Railroad station. The staff were all friendly. Their was a small wine reception in the lobby in the evening and Starbucks coffee in the morning. Ryan, the concierge, ordered... More

I choose this hotel for our 7 night stay in Chicago after reading the many great reviews about it on Trip Advisor. The hotel certainly lived up to all of the reviews and my expectations. I had asked for a quiet room on a high floor and this is what we were allocated, I had also requested a goldfish for... More

Great boutique hotel, I am not sure how many rooms there are, but considerably less than some of those vast hotels in the centre of Chicago. I would stay again but read below so as not to get caught out. The location is fantastic being just a couple of hundred yards from the "magnificent mile" (main shopping street of the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Monaco for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time. The room and hotel overall was very cute. I loved the striped walls in the bedroom and the big sun like mirror. I enjoyed our pet goldfish too! The staff was very friendly. We were able to get tickets through the concierge for... More

Based on Trip Advisor ratings, we chose to stay here on a recent trip to Chicago. Our room was awesome with plenty of space, clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful and eager to please. The location was also very convenient only two blocks from the Red Line station for our ride to and from Wrigley Field. We highly... More
