I always appreciate Kimpton's excellent value and customer service and Hotel Monaco was no exception. The room was large by downtown SFO standards and the décor added to the roomy feel. Housekeeping was not as thorough as I would have liked but overall the rooms and public areas are very well kept and do not look worn. A very nice... More

I stayed in this hotel from 4/9-4/11 2014, and was upgraded as I checked-in (great start!). I received an amazing room - the best I ever had, with 2 big rooms - a living room and a sleeping room. The living room was very spacious, with a big window - looking at the street. I had one issue in the... More

Our daughters wedding - she booked a block of rooms at the Monaco. In the end it could not have been better! Daniel was at the reception - he could not have been better, I was so impressed I commended him to the floor manager. Everyone we had contact with could not have been more pleasant. Great Spa in the... More

I like kimpton properties. The free wifi, the free wine at happy hour and the nice restaurant on property are cool. Had a good breakfast at the restaurant. Service was good. I like how every kimpton hotel has a unique story / theme. The room was trendy, well decorated and comfortable. The location of the hotel is good. There are... More

I stayed at Hotel Monaco the weekend of my 30th birthday. I signed up to become a Kimpton member to get the free wifi and received all kinds of perks with our stay! First, we got a room upgrade because it was my birthday. I requested a room with a great view and we were on the highest floor with... More

Stayed at the Monaco on our first trip to San Francisco August 2012. It's in an old building right downtown that's been beautifully renovated. Room was great as are the amenities and service. Staff was fantastic and gave us pointers on getting around town, including Honey Honey a nearby eatery great for breakfast. On site restaurant is superb and the... More

Nice located, not in downtown but nearby. Excellent service and cosy rooms. Valet parking and very pleasant lobby with fire place. What's more? Sure, very charming bar with a plenty of drinks and fancy staff. Enjoy!

A very good mid priced hotel convenient for most of San Francisco and just a couple of blocks walk from Union Square. Free coffee in the morning and a free wine hour in the late afternoon were welcome attractions. My room was comfortable and they gave me a kettle to make tea,. Staff were helpful and friendly, I would stay... More

I stayed here as a single female for four nights on business. As always Kimpton service shined from the moment I checked in to the moment I headed out to catch Bart to the airport. The room was not huge but well organized. The towels and robes were a little warm and it was disappointing that they no longer used... More
