I stayed here for two nights in October on business. Great room at a great price. The staff was very helpful. Excellent wine reception every evening with free massages as well. Highly recommended. Great location as well in downtown Denver.

Room Tip: High floor corner room is the best.

Our experience with the Monaco was a little disappointing. We had a holiday party and booked 30+ rooms. For the money we spent and the promises made left us very disappointed. The bathrooms in the event area were messy and out of tissue. I had guests going up to their rooms to avoid using them. For the event itself, there was another party next door and people from that party mingled over to our bar and appetizers. The cocktail area was too small for our group and was very warm and uncomfortable. The tables were set up with 9 place settings. All our guests came in couples so I had to have them change the set up so our guests could all sit with their spouses. Some of the dinners were not served until after 8:30. The food was so disappointing. Most guests left at 10:00 when the bar ran out of beer. I just didn't feel like we got "the Kimpton experience".

This is one of my favorite hotels in Denver. I have stayed here a few times and each time I leave I always wonder why I would even think about staying any other place when I'm in Denver.
The staff is amazing, the pet policy encourages a fun atmosphere. I don't always bring my pet, but I still enjoy the Monaco. When I bring my dog it's even more fun. They have a welcoming policy for pets, which removes the stigma I sometimes feel when traveling with our Yorkiepoo.
If you haven't stayed here you should. If you like animals and a friendly place with outstanding service, this is the place to stay in Denver. It's downtown, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and lots of fun things to do.
On one visit I had a business meeting and the Monaco staff found us a great dogsitter who came to the hotel. My meeting went late and the sitter had to leave, when we returned my dog was at the front desk having a great time waiting for our return.
The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with amazing beds and linens. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The workout facility is great and open at all hours and has great equipment. I worked out late and there was plenty of cold bottled water, towels, earphones, apples and of course it was very clean as this whole property always is.
This last stay I asked about an upgrade when we checked in and was upgraded to a very comfortable suite. It was the last day of a two week driving vacation and we were beat. The staff seems to always pick up on the mood of the guests. We went to our room and very shortly a bottle of wine was delivered to our room compliments of our bellman.
After having a few nights of mediocre hotels, this was the perfect place for the last night of our vacation. Our dog loves the Monaco as much as we do!

Room Tip: If you need anything ask, the staff is always very helpful. I love having a goldfish in my room. If...

I stayed at the Denver Monaco this past week and I gotta say it.. it was my favorite hotel I've ever stayed in. The decor is awesome. The restaurant, Panzano, is insanely delicious- the service was phenomenal and we were treated like royalty. The hotel staff were great. Friendly and helpful and always smiling. Great recommendations from Parker, Dane, and both Laurens! Thank you all! I already miss having my morning coffee by the fireplace in the lobby. What a beautiful trip. I can't wait to go back!!

The pets are welcome policy makes a friendly clientele. The staff is kind, helpful, and gracious. We arrived without a pet, and were offered a goldfish to cheer the room. Love it! The decor was unusual and pleasing, a place with a difference (besides the dogs!) Happy Hour was attended by canine and human guests, and again, the dogs made conversation with strangers easy. Breakfast the next morning was delicious with good service. Comfortable bed, nice linens, dog dishes and pad on floor...all made for a relaxing and good stay.
