My husband and I stayed the Hotel Monaco in Chicago recently, and we had a very lovely time. Nick at the front desk went above and beyond to welcome us during check-in. The Kimptons have an evening wine hour, which is one of the things we enjoy. This night there was a very good guitarist playing and singing requests from his audience. A really nice touch. They also served spiced wine, though we stuck with the always pleasant red option. The lobby has a good amount of seating to sit and listen to the music while enjoying a glass of wine. We had dinner at the restaurant in the the hotel, South Water Market, and enjoyed it completely. Service was very attentive but not irritating, and the food was creative but not too fussy. I would like a better chocolate dessert option, but I guess some people are not chocolate freaks, as I am. Our room was spacious, had all the amenities we could need, and very quiet. This hotel is on the corner of Wabash and Randolph (might be Lake) so it a block west of Michigan Avenue, and easy walking distance to Symphony Hall, Millennium Paark (skating in winter, concerts in summer), the Art Institue, and all the wonderful shops on North Michigan Avenue. We always like Kimpton properties and The Hotel Monaco is no exception.
