We have never been dissappoinntd with any of the Kimpton Hotels we have stayed at. The Monaco in Portland Oregon is no exception. From the tine we arrived until the time we checked out we were made o feel like we were truly welcome. The checkin procedure took only a few moments and we were upgraded to a larger room.... More

After spending over $400 for a regular room, I found a $12 charge for wifi and no coffee maker in the room unacceptable. I went to get coffee in the lobby and had at least a 15 minutes wait while they replenished. Really think they could come up with a process where guest wouldn't t need to wait. Lots of... More

Dear onthegotx, We find no coffee and high priced WiFi unacceptable too! That's why we offer free coffee makers available upon request. Simply ask our front desk and we'll run one up to your room. Why don't we have them in our rooms? Because our philosophy is to have our guests gather in our Living Room over morning coffee so... More

Spent a long-weekend at the Hotel Monaco Portland. Staff was great - very helpful and accommodating. Rooms are quite funky - might not be for everyone. Although we were on the hypoallergenic floor (by chance, not requested) the room felt a bit musty. Fun decor however the sitting area in our suite was a bit awkward - oddly placed coffee... More

Our suite was very comfortable and the staff made us - and our dog, Bodie - feel very welcome. We were delighted one afternoon when we had left him with the staff and upon our return he popped his head up from behind the front desk to greet us! And to our surprise, the general manager greeted Bodie by name... More

This was my second stay at the Hotel Monaco in Portland. I loved it just as much as the first time. The location is really excellent to walk around and explore Portland. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The staff is really top notch. The only thing I can complain about (and it is minor) is the slower wifi. Otherwise,... More

I was in Portland for the Project Pabst music festival and was surprised to find a great rate at this hotel as compared to other hotels in the area.

The rooms are nice, the staff even better, but the highlight of this hotel is the lobby lounge. It's a great place for the whole family to meet and hang out. Tip: join Kimpton Karma rewards before going to the hotel. I believe it gets you complimentary internet and a minibar credit. Kimpton Hotels are the best for pets!!
