I've strayed from the Monaco in the past because it costs a bit more, it is often booked when you need it, etc., and I will do so no longer. The staff is polite and efficient, the rooms are comfortable in a way that matters (the mattresses here are exactly what you want and the hvac system doesn't make you... More

Spent several days in Portland early January and chose this for its convenient downtown location...Prepaid online for a standard room with queen bed. Upon check in immediately UPGRADED to a Jr. Suite on top floor!!! Fun decor, friendly staff, and so convenient for taking public transit. Also within walking distance to top restaurants. Next visit when the roses are blooming... More

I stayed here while in town and had the best service, the best room! The rooms are adorable! They are decorated so whimsical! If you are traveling alone they will give you a gold fish for your room to keep you company.. They have a free vino and snacks every night at happy hour as well. I really love this... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend during my first trip to Portland. It's a fun, slightly quirky hotel right in the heart of downtown. The staff is friendly and went out of their way to offer up suggestions on where to visit, eat etc. The room housed an eclectic collection of furniture and designs which I found both curious and fun....

I've stayed at the Hotel Monaco Portland twice now, and both times have been completely wonderful! The rooms are beautiful & both sexy and comfortable. Everyone on staff that we interacted with - front desk, doorman, valet, bellhop, room service - were all friendly & polished, very responsive to everything we needed. The lobby is lovely. I'm already looking forward... More

This is the third Kimpton Hotel I have stayed at, and I don't think I will ever stay anywhere else if I have the choice. In all three Kimptons I have stayed at, the locations have been fabulous--right in the center of the city in the really nice part--Chicago, and two different Kimptons in Downtown Portland Oregon. I have heard... More

Needed a central hotel for a weekend stay in Portland and chose Hotel Monaco because my niece loves the place (they happily take pets). I was impressed by the front desk staff--friendly, warm, not too inquisitive but just right. I enjoyed the Portlandia-style decor, too. Lots of kitschy furnishings and crazy lamps. But most important, everything was clean and the... More

This hotel is everything I have come to expect from Kimpton: the service is marvellous (they we happy to post a article of clothing that I left behind); the rooms are spacious and well designed (in that bonkers, over-the-top Kimpton way); the location is perfect. No complaints at all. I didn't travel with either my dog or my child on... More

I stayed for just one night but would have happy stayed longer. The hotel has been very nicely renovated and the staff are great. Keep in mind that this is an old property. Don't come with expectations that you will be staying in a brand new building. This is a hotel that feels like it dates back to the 20s.... More
