We stayed at the Monaco this past weekend. We have stayed at Kimpton Hotels before and have always liked them. This experience was no different. The hotel is in an excellent location downtown. On Saturday, we were able to walk to a variety of destinations in the downtown area with no problem including the Farmers Market, Saturday market, VooDoo Donuts,... More

I often stay at the Hotel Monaco when I'm in Portland for business, or pleasure. The reason? The on-site service is as good as it comes. This most recent stay reminded me of just how special it is. From the very moment we pulled into the downstairs garage, we felt like we were 'home.' It had been a while, but... More

In a lovely spot in downtown Portland this sweet gem was perfect for a weekend without the kids and the fabulous staff looked out for us from start to finish. (My husband left a suit in the closet of our room and they promptly mailed it to us the next day.) All the doggie decor made me wish we had... More

Entire stay lovely. Staff welcoming and helpful. Tea in the morning by the fireplace with the paper was perfect. Vibrant location. Great comfortable beds, pleasant space. Will be returning!

Starting with their e-mail confirmation, and ending with a check-out that felt like leaving old friends, this hotel staff was perfect in every way. They suggested ways they could help plan things prior to our arrival, even did nice little extras, such as extra coffee packets & yoga kits in our room. We travel a LOT, and I have to... More

Our trip was for pleasure (to attend a wedding) and I booked the Monaco due to: a) TripAdvisor ratings; & b) a very good price booked through my company's travel agency. This would otherwise be way out of my price range. Booking was easy. I requested a crib in the room for our young child to which they said no... More

I live outside of town and wanted to celebrate my birthday with family who live in Portland. I didn't want to leave my dogs at home overnight so looked for a place that allowed dogs. I loved this place. It was elegant and so dog friendly. We partied in the restaurant downstairs and the dogs were very well behaved. The... More

Thanks for your great review. Just a quick point of clarification. We do ask that dogs not be left alone in a guest room as some of our friends have a tendency to bark if unattended. We do offer pet sitting at the reception desk for $10 per hour 100% of which goes the the Reception Clerk taking care of... More

I just spent several days at one of the best hotels. From the very beginning until the end it was perfect. Beautiful lobby, wonderful people working there. They attend to your every need. Wine in the evening, coffee and tea in the a.m.. Dog friendly and there were several of them. The rooms are decorated in very different ways. Beautiful... More

We had an excellent stay at the Monaco June last year, in one of the finest cities in US. It was my 3rd trip to PDX and my GF's first. (excellent enough for me to want to write this review after coming across my notes from that trip) We had a cozy upper-story room with a view of the streets... More
