From check-in to check-out, this hotel exceeded all my expectations. The boutique hotel is classy and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The bar and restaurant were lovely and the breakfast delicious. Complimentary croissant and coffee and juice come with the room. Each evening there is a wine and snack get- together for guests. Each morning there are urns... More

Stayed 2 nights in Seattle at the Monaco. Very nice rooms, great service, outstanding location. Only drawback was the 40.00 parking charge per day, but then again we didn't have to drive anywhere. After noon wine time was nice with the live music.

Always a treat to stay in a hotel and greeted with a sincere smile and acknowledgment by each and every employee, from the valet to the front desk,and housekeepers. I arrived earlier than check in , the room wasn't ready, they took my phone number and called promptly when it was available. The room was appointed with very comfortable bed... More

Thanks Mazama, appreciate the great notes on the hotel and the wonderful comments on Sazerac, there are a great number of vegetarian options on the menu, we can also do a Gluten free menu, as well Chef Jason McClure would be able to whip up vegan or diabetic menus as well. We will always check guests in when their room... More

Joined the Kimpton Karma Rewards program and got an amazing deal on a last minute one night stay at Hotel Monaco. We got to Seattle far earlier than we expected (around 11:30 am) and dropped by the hotel to see if we could leave our bags there. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel not only let us check in... More

Thanks Diana! you seem to have hit on so many of the special touches we offer. We will always check you in if the room is ready, there isnt some secret code where we actually make people wait for their room until 3 pm. If that room is ready you got it! Hopefully your goldfish was happy with you, he... More

We arrived about 7pm, having come in on the ferry from Victoria. No bell men outside - luckily our kind taxi driver put our luggage on a luggage cart. However, a bell man did arrive as he was done and pushed the cart inside. Upon check-in we were offered a coupon to the attached restaurant (Sazerac) - the experience eating... More

Oh Judy, Judy, Judy... lets clean this up a bit for you. Of course we always hope that there will be a bellman outside to help you with your bags, and 99% of the time there is a smiling handsome guy there most willing to assist. If not, just wait a minute or two and they will be there. The... More

I spent a couple hours looking for the perfect unique boutique hotel for a weekend with my teen daughter in Seattle, and I found it in the Monaco. The substitute pet sold me - (if you miss your own while away from home, they will place a goldfish in your room)! Somehow this was thrilling. I have become picky about... More

Thanks Sharimck, I love Kelowna, very great town! So glad our fish program could make you smile, that is the purpose of the little guys, they live in a giant tank downstairs where they hang with about 100 of their friends and from time to time we put them to work by sending them upstairs to make someone's day.

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco Seattle for business. I was only in town for one night but as I checked into my room I realized that I will have to go back for fun. My experience with the front desk staff was personable and swift, the valet was funny and sweet and my room was delightful! Thank you everyone... More

Wendy, come back soon and visit with us for a week, we would love to have you! The hotel is perfectly located to allow you to explore all the sights in the city, we are an easy walk to the Market, the Monorail or Pioneer Square, restaurants galore and even the waterfront is just down the street. We try to... More

Stayed here for work for three nights. Had a king premier room which was not huge but enough for me. The room was on the 11th floor in the corner and was very quiet in terms of outside noise. The walls must be very thin because there were times I could hear noise from adjoining rooms. The room set up... More

Thanks Florida, This hotel like so many Kimpton's have been made out of an old office building. Thus you get all sorts of interesting twists and turns in the rooms, such as the little staircase in your room. Not sure what was happening with the Plantation shades in the room, guests tend to be a tad hard on them but... More

By chance I happened to stay at the Monaco Seattle and the service started from moment my taxi pulled up and I was welcomed by the Bellman (Colin)- the staff here is definitely sincere about treating their guests right..

Hey DC, appreciate your comments on the staff, they work very hard to make all this happen for you, the staff from Colin on down are chosen for their attitudes and ability to smile for 8 hours straight! Actually we have quite a bit of fun in the hotel, and that helps. The Wine Hour is a standard at all... More

As this was the first trip to Seattle for us, we chose a Kimpton property because we have visited Kimptons in other cities and have always been happy. This property was one of the best! The hotel is convenient to downtown activies and sites, lots of great restautants. The desk personnel and the valet/door people were so totally helpful and... More

Thanks Barbara, you must have really liked the hotel as your review is posted twice! Glad you could have the opportunity to spend such a great amount of time with us, most folks want to stay for 5 nights after they have spent one. The King Suite is great for a long stay, or for a family stay, the extra... More
