We have stayed at the Hotel Monaco on a couple of different occasions and had great stays. The hotel itself is in a great location and the rooms are fun. This past visit had us coming into city for a class our daughter was participating in which meant we brought two teenaged daughters with us. The hotel check in was... More

Thanks for this MJPower, we are delighted that you had so many positive things to say about the property. The location of the hotel is one of the great positives for our guests, we are just far enough from the Market and shopping but oh, so close! The challenge when you ask for an early arrival is that we need... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for our first anniversary and we were very impressed with the quality at the price. Many other hotels were $100 more a night but we felt this one was fantastic. It is a great location to get to many of the downtown attractions. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. The... More

Thanks Bryan, yikes that chest of drawers cost me a 'dot'! This hotel like so many hotels in the Kimpton collection has been re created from an old building, as such we have a million different room types and sizes. When the designer put it together, some rooms have chests, some don't. I actually thought all rooms had a chest... More

Hotel experience was top notch, good service, good room, friendly, all that. Parking, with pre-pay, was reasonable at $34/night. Room was deeply discounted for February, and a bargain. Restaurant is a *DISASTER* and must be avoided at all costs.

Thanks Zachary, Great that you enjoyed the hotel so much. Wow - that is a pretty tough stance on the restaurant, hope you took the time to share your thoughts on the meal with the Manager vs. just noting your issue here. I actually eat there frequently and have always had a brilliant meal, the cuisine of Northwest fare combined... More

I would give this a 3.5 if that were a choice. Kimpton hotels usually earn a 5 from me, but this one had enough flaws that I will not likely stay at this specific hotel again unless future reviews indicate these things have been fixed. First, the good: hotel room was lovely, staff are all incredibly helpful and positive, good... More

Hello JoKnits. Thanks for all this and I know that my brilliant Hotel Manager Travis, connected with you already on the other survey you filled out with the same comments.

We've stayed a few times and have always had great service from their whole staff. I always have to leave early the next morning (5:00-ish) and they always have my car waiting by the time I get down from my room with a smile.

We reserved the Premium Monte Carlo Suite. The room itself was BEAUTIFUL! The staff was very friendly and helpful at check in. Also, they have a wine hour in the evening, who doesn't love that?

Thanks Kate - appreciate that you found us so beautiful. It is a pretty good looking hotel from the inside.

I have stayed at the Monaco twice now and each time has been wonderful. My mom and I treated ourselves to in-room massages during our stay on Christmas Eve. The masseuse was amazing, and the room was clean, beautiful and a perfect size for our massages. We also enjoyed dinner at Sazerac, and received great service all around from the... More

Another great Kimpton in Seattle. The Alexis is my favorite but we stayed at The Monaco and loved it. The team they have is friendly, the restaurant is fantastic and a great find in the heart of Downtown Seattle! We will be back, thank you Team Monaco!
