What a gem of a hotel, really our home away from home. Convenient to all of Seattle and staffed with the most extraordinary and caring staff. After traveling across the country, we were warmly welcomed and quickly presented with out room. The rooms are very welcoming and very well maintained. The restaurant is a treat with great staff and wonderful... More

Hotel Monaco was excellent. When I checked in, the front desk staff was incredibly friendly and sweet. The girl (I didn't catch her name, but she had wavy brown hair and glasses) was super nice and offered to upgrade me to the presidential suite for free because I am a kimpton karma rewards member! The suite was amazing, it was... More

We came due to the great reviews, but we didn't have that experience. The rooms have very little storage, the desk isn't good to work at, the bathrooms are tiny and I really wish I would have gone someplace else. The beds were made so poorly, we had to remake them before we could sleep in them. This hotel gives... More

Very convenient downtown location. Excellent decoration of rooms. Always the free wine and cockatils between 5 and 6 PM as with any other Kimpton hotels. Very helpful front desk staff who will give you expert advice on Seattle and its neighbordhoods. Child and especially dog-friendly.

Thanks Thierry, you were a long way from home! Appreciate you noting the helpful front desk folks, they are all cross trained as concierges and have great knowledge of the city and happenings. Never hesitate. All Kimptons are dog friendly and kid friendly, but the Monaco has some special touches. Come back soon. Tom. More

We had an awesome stay! It looks ok on the outside, but inside it feels trendy yet cozy. It is conveniently in downtown Seattle. The hotel has a great discount for AAA members where you get a discounted hotel rate and also a discounted valet parking rate. There's no self parking option, but it worked out fine. There is a...

Really cool, we do try but also try to be a solid and stable spot for anyone. The outside of the building - yep not terribly exciting, it was one of those lovely mid 60s structures which confused function over form. The building was originally a telephone switching station and well when they build it - just didn't seem too... More

Ours was not your usual business trip or vacation at the Hotel Monaco. We are members of an out-of-state company that had a two-week arbitration in Seattle. After visiting four hotels in the area, we selected the Hotel Monaco to be our home base. We took over the entire 11th floor for three weeks and had all furniture removed from... More

The hotel is very well appointed, the rooms spacious, and the staff are warm and welcoming. Stayed one night at each end of cruise - both times were upgraded to king rooms (had 2 rooms booked) . Surprisingly the rooms are available at 9am when we arrived back from cruise which was great - I have never had a room... More

Thanks UK, what a great adventure for you to come all that way and do the Alaska experience. Still one of my favorite trips of all time. It is a treat to arrive early and get the keys to your room. If the room is ready, you will get those keys. we try darn hard to get the rooms ready... More

The ambience was great and staff very friendly and helpful. I still don't know what the cost was though, as the credit card details are in limbo somewhere. (I really don't like that at all.) The room was okay, but cost extortionate--$400+ for a king room--not a suite. Not enough outlets in the bath--had to move the coffee tray and... More

Hello Patricia. Thanks for the nice note - yep as TripAdvisor reported Seattle is the most expensive city in the country to travel to this summer. The rates are high for all hotels, not just the lovely hotel you stayed at. Always check kimptonhotels.com to see what the best deals are, different times different prices. Just like the airlines.

From the moment we arrived and we were greeted by the valet, the entire family felt welcome. The front door staff (valet, bellman, etc.) are incredibly friendly, funny and helpful. The room was pleasant (we had no view, which was fine with us) and mini bar was well-stocked. Room service was the only part of our stay that wasn't 100... More

Thanks Katy. Glad you connected with so many of the staff members, I am sorry that there was some room service issue - wonder what that was. The hotel is in the center of the city and as such views are a little tough, but we make up for it with a lot of creative décor. We do offer the... More
