The Hotel Monaco does it right. Friendly and helpful staff make you feel right at home. Lots of fun going on from restaurant specials, tarot card readers, wine hour, morning coffees etc... Great vibe and the rooms are clean and interesting. Mine had birds all over it and eclectic style. Will definitely stay here again. Other Kimpton properties can learn... More

We did not stay here because of the price but I wanted to see what we were missing. It is in the heart of downtown with lots of cars, pedestrians, tall buildings, and construction going on. The front entry way was not a good first impression (a set of doors into another set of doors, dirty, smelly). The staff were... More

Our family of four adults stayed for two nights here. We booked based on fabulous TripAdvisor recommendations, and we couldn't have been happier. Highlights: Location. My goal was to park our car and walk/take public transport everywhere, and this hotel was perfect for that. About a minute from the light rail, which takes you all over, and seconds away from...

We chose the Hotel Monaco for our first Portland visit and did we ever make a great decision! It is just one of those hotels that get it all right. The location is perfect and easily accessible from the airport via the Tri-Met Red Line. Traffic getting into Portland can be a real bear, so always opt for the Tri-Met!... More

The decor is quite quirky, certainly not your generic hotel. The location is very central, free ice cream, wine, friendly staff. Great place. We walked everywhere from here. Also, they had champagne for us and a discount on the downstairs bar.

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for our last night in Portland. This hotel was the best we stayed at in the whole region. The staff was the most friendly and service oriented. We were greeted with friendly smiles and our room was just gorgeous; impeccable and beautiful decorated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Also, we stayed... More

Absolutely love the decor, not a "hotel" feeling. When I called before my trip to ask about a DVD player in the room, they offered to have one put in my room and IT WAS THERE when I checked in! They really do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable... yoga mat, cold drinks, ice cream! But the best... More

We had been in the area after wine tasting in Newberg and Dundee for a couple days. Stopped in downtown PDX on the way home. Decided to stop at the Monaco to see if they had a room. First, they honored a last minute deal that Kimpton had online. Next, very dog friendly place, two paws up from Molly and... More

The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and to make sure that we had everything we needed including tips about the food trucks, what not to miss while in the city, etc. We had stayed here on a previous visit and were glad to be back. This is an excellent choice for staying in downtown... More

The most beautiful hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Trendy and bright throughout the entire building. We were upgraded to a king suite upon check in which was luxurious and pretty amazing. I gave it only four stars due to the parking situation. You must either valet for a HEFTY fee, or park your car several... More
