We have stayed at the Monaco several times and this time it was to celebrate my husbands birthday. This chain of hotels never disappoints when it is a special occasion and they treat you well. We booked a larger suite that we have booked before and it was lovely, clean and comfortable. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.... More

The location is great--very little help offered getting our bags out of car--and struggled to open door with 3 bellmen looking on. Weird. Then a bit of mix-up at check-in--tried to give us a lesser room than we booked--good thing I had my confirmation info--then no directions to elevator......room was very nice and large and quiet. We had a drink... More

My room was comfortably furnished and the bathroom was functional. The ceilings are high, so the room felt more spacious. The building is well-constructed and I didn't hear any noise from above, below or sides. My only criticism is that the honor minibar is rather small and there is no space for storing anything additional you need to keep cool.

Thank you for staying at Hotel Monaco during your recent trip to Salt Lake City. Thank you especially for the nice comments about our guestrooms. Our guestrooms all have beverage coolers stocked with non-alcoholic mini bars (because we are in Utah). We would be more than happy to place a larger mini-fridge for food storage in your guestroom next time... More

The Kimpton hotels have their trademark Karma loyalty plan, but I am a particularly loyal to the Monaco subset. The Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake City shares features that promote that loyalty including the very comfortable social lobby, the wine reception, the Monaco signature eclectic decor, and terrific staff. The hotel's restaurant, Bambara, was both convenient and excellent for dining... More

Stayed here for a two-day set of meetings in downtown SLC in February. Hotel is super convenient to the TRAX train to the airport, and walking distance to many good local restaurants and bars.

My favorite qualities of this hotel are: location- walking distance to most downtown venues, including the convention center, restaurants, tourist attractions, etc; quiet - while being downtown, the noise level is very low, and sound within the hotel is limited to some hallway noise; food and beverage - excellent quality and very knowledgable bar staff. My room on the 7th... More

First time to Salt Lake City (SLC) and happy that I chose this hotel which has been retrofitted from an old historic bank. The hotel lobby is handsome and I could spend hours chilling out in the comfortable sofas and chairs! It's retro and modern chic with a real fireplace. Look out for the lofty intricately painted ceiling. What I... More

I stayed here in the past and had such a negative experience I felt compelled to write about it, but when a hotel turns it around I will be the first to let others know that. Exceptional service. Didn't have to request anything and all my favorites there upon arrival! I called management to thank them the moment I arrived!

First time staying at a Kimpton branded hotel and I was pleasantly surprised. Very stylish hotel that is about a 1/2 block from the Salt Palace Convention Center. If you are attending a conference, this hotel is easily in walking distance. The staff was extremely friendly and their room service was excellent. The Ham & Cheese Panini was fantastic! Room...
