First time stay at a Kimpton Hotel. I was impressed! The staff was great! Hotel room was immaculate. The restaurant was awesome. The valet parking made it easy--finding parking downtown is difficult, plus they bring your car quickly when you need it. I suggest you eat a meal at the restaurant!

Having been a member of the Kimpton Rewards program for the last few years, I always look for a Kimpton property to stay at when traveling. Hotel Monaco did not disappoint. Friendly staff, clean room and within walking distance to Pike Place Market and the LightRail. I planned this trip as a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday and we... More

Stayed here for 1 night on a stop over in Seattle, Booked based on TripAdvisor reviews and it really is as good as the reviews suggest. Friendly helpful staff from the second you arrive. Really comfy beds, good air conditioning, large bathrooms. I can't remember the name of the hotel restaurant, but it's good too. The location is great, just... More

Well let me help you with this, the name of the restaurant is Sazerac, and yep it is a darn good choice for everyone looking for a fun alternative to the norm. Where else but a Kimpton hotel will you find Northwest Cuisine mixed with Southern fare! Come for Oysters, Salmon and Gumbo. The hotel is in the middle of... More

We stayed here for just a night, but it was a great experience. 1) The staff was very friendly and helpful - especially the bell boys and valets. We forgot something of our baby in the car and he ran downstairs to get it from the car while we waited 2) Great location - we walked to the Seattle Waterfront... More

Thanks so much for the bullet point notes. There is one more reason to park with us, the ability to get stuff out of your car! Parking in the center of the city is expensive. Parking with us isn't a bargain, but the convenience is worth the trouble as well as the comfort level of not worrying about what might... More

Very nice, comfortable hotel. It's in a great location for walking to the many attractions in Seattle and is also well situated for people doing business in downtown Seattle. The front desk and valet staff are very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable. We had two queen beds and they were great to sleep on. There was plenty of... More

Thanks Yelm. Those QQ rooms are great for a family, when I am here with my 2 kids we find we have lots of room and fewer fights, which seems to be a serious positive to a family vacation. The group out front valets and front desk are a lot of fun but also very focused on having you leave... More

Stayed here after checking out of sister hotel Vintage Hotel because their wifi wasn't working, despite paying for the faster option and after the front desk wasn't very helpful.

We recently booked the Monaco for a two night stay in Seattle. They honored the Pacific NW deal for those in Idaho (as well as OR and BC), and the rate included parking and 2 cocktails in Sazerac. We were traveling with our 3 small boys, ages 11 and under, so we booked the Monte Carlo suite. This was perfect... More

thanks Cda, if you go to Kimptonhotels.com you will always find the best rates and all sorts of fun packages. Great advice. The Monte Carlo rooms are terrific value for a family especially as they provide you not only with a sofa bed, but also with 2 TVs thus you can be spared from watching Sponge Bob with your family....

Great stay with family of 5. Spacious, well appointed room. Service was excellent. Loved the coffee in the morning & wine hour. Location was convenient, we were able to walk to Safeco Field, Pike Place Market. Light rail just around the corner. My new favorite hotel!

Your new favorite hotel! It is one of mine as well! Thanks for the note, - sure wine hour every night between 5 and 6 is a great chance to sample some local wine, meet with the handsome General Manager (me) and meet some of the other guests! The Light rail down the street doesn't get enough attention, it is... More

What a beautiful hotel! We enjoyed every moment of our 2-night stay. We arrived several hours before check-in so left our bags with the bellman. After a walk to the market for lunch, we returned to check in and found a spacious and comfortable room with upscale features. My wife and I enjoyed the complimentary wine and entertainment in the...

Thanks Dr. Berna, appreciate the notes, it is a beautiful hotel, the idea behind the design is it to be very different from all the beige hotels in the city, and yes - we have achieved that goal!

Nice location, walking distance to pretty much anywhere in downtown. Room is a decent size. No coffeemaker or fridge, but everything else is there. Coffee is available in the lobby in the morning. Good restaurant. I liked the fact that you get $5 credit if you don't want your room cleaned. Pillows were a little too high for me, and... More
