Headed to Seattle for a quick anniversary weekend. Kimpton's just never disappoint. The comfort, staff and amenities are an incredible value for the central location. Brynn at the front desk, amazing customer service. Room a few minutes late in preparation was met by a few complimentary drinks in Sazarac, the perfect remedy. It all took are of itself, location and... More

The Hotel Monaco is located perfectly in downtown Seattle. Not only is it close to the convention center and the tourist destinations (Pike Place Market), but it is also around the corner to most of the buses that run through downtown Seattle, and the light rail. Within twenty minutes you can be in most of the City and there is... More

The most surprising thing about the Monaco was how small the hotel was in terms of the common areas. However, it was nicely appointed. The best part of the hotel, though, is the staff. We had an issue with our room and was upgraded to a suite, which was awesome. I also had an important piece of mail to send... More

We stayed at Hotel Monaco last weekend with our two kids (11 and 14) and loved every minute of our stay. The hotel itself is beautiful and the location is just perfect--walking distance to the market, to dining, and the Seattle Art Museum. We loved that it was literally just steps away from the things we wanted to see and... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at Hotel Monaco while we were visiting Seattle for a college visit. The hotel decor reminded me of several hotels in South Beach Miami. Very stylish and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. We dined at the restaurant in the hotel one evening and it was top notch! When we return we'll be... More

This property is beautiful inside. The staff is second to none. When checking in last month, there was a problem with my credit card (totally my fault), but Kylie at the front desk handled it professionally and graciously apologized over and over for the delay getting checked in (again, it was all my fault). After a short delay we were... More

My husand and I were in Seattle for a weekend away and really enjoyed our stay at the Monaco. The staff were friendly and helpful and the decor of the hotel is cool/funky and very comfortable. It's an excellent location for walking to shopping and restaurants and we walked to the Mariners game at Safeco field. Complimentary happy hour is... More

Thanks Carrie, delighted you had a great weekend away, sure bring the kids next time, we are a great spot for a family get away or any excuse to hang in downtown Seatlle. Being perfectly located close to the market, the monorail or Pioneer Square there are a million fun ways to keep the kids smiling. If that doesnt work... More

Enjoyed the hotel room space and decor. Front desk and bell staff very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was good food and good value. Hotel location is excellent with easy access to the cities light rail system. Only issue was waiting for room upon arrival which was late afternoon on Friday. It may have been... More

Hello Gerry, thanks for the nice note, and thanks for that reminder, you can easily get around this city on the light rail, and there is a station just down the street from us. The value for guest is there, as a trip from the airport is only 3 bucks! We work pretty hard to get those rooms ready on... More

Hey Tennessee, Thank you so much for the information on all the good things we have going here. you pretty much hit on all the high notes except for Sazerac! a meal there is worth the trip, so come back give the catfish and gumbo a try.

We took a weekend trip to Seattle and had stayed at a Klimpton hotel in San Francisco that we loved so we decided to go with the Monaco. By becoming a member online we received substantial savings. We liked the eclectic decor in our room and throughout the hotel. The staff was friendly, welcoming, and knowlegeable about the area. The... More
