The Monaco Portland is a great place to stay. The staff members are friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable, the decor attractive, and the evening happy hour a large friendly party. Add to that the stylish decor and the convenient location and it is apparent why this hotel consistently ranks so highly.

I think maybe I just don't "get it"--I also am not interested in a hotel being anything but a comfortable and quiet place to sleep. This place is visually overwhelming. The wallpaper in our queen-queen suite is a Hitchcockian (is that a word?) mess (just think of "The Birds" which transforms in low light into the stuff of nightmares. There... More

Spent 1 night in Feb w/ my wife and dog. I literally cannot think of anything they could have done better. The staff was prompt, polite and helpful with each interaction. Room service was nice and had an accurate estimate for when the food would arrive. Overall, just a wondering experience.

Requested a particular location in the hotel on a particular corner away from the elevators, which the front desk was kind enough to accommodate, since we wouldn't have stayed there otherwise. However, on our arrival there, management had given our room to another guest, after we'd cancelled another hotel reservation. When we complained to the mgr, she alleged the hotel... More

Convenient location for business and pleasure. Really nice restaurant and bar right next door. Has an almost European hotel feel. Service was good and lots of friendly dogs lounging about made it fun.

My husband and I traveled to Portland on business recently, and decided to test the "pet-friendly" policy by bringing our two dogs along for a road trip. We received excellend information from the hotel prior to our arrival regarding services & expectations for our pets. They even offer a pet-sitting service! The pet-friendly promise was supported by all the staff... More

We visited again for our Son's basketball tournament over President's and Valentines Day week-end. The lobby is festive and fun with tea and coffee in the morning, as well as a wine hour in the evening. Great Location to walk along the waterfront a few blocks away and the Red Star Tavern is a great place for a meal. We... More

We spent our Valentine's Day weekend over in downtown Portland, and chose the Hotel Monaco based on its charm, social hour, and proximity to good eats in downtown. Indeed, it did not disappoint. The wine/social hour was a ton of fun where we got to interact with other guests, almost everywhere we wanted to go was walking distance, and we... More

Busy weekend at this perfectly located hotel. Check-in was a few minutes late but they comp'd parking to more than make up for it. Comfortable and quiet room. Bathtub a bit dirty after a rushed cleaning (hairs) but not that bad after a wipe down. Nice staff, easy parking service. Nice comps, wine, coffee and hot chocolate. Slept really well... More
