My husband and I honeymooned in Chicago ten years ago and stayed at the Hotel Monaco and LOVED it. Perfect location, great service, fun and luxurious. We became instant Kimpton members and stay in one whenever we've had the chance. My husband had a surprise ten year trip planned that got axed because I was diagnosed with cancer. We were heartbroken in so many ways. He promised me our trip was merely postponed, not cancelled. It turned out he had a work event in Chicago in September and we coordinated a two-night stay at our honeymoon hotel. I even got permission from my doctors to take a week off from chemo so I could go. The staff made our time there nothing short of magic. We could not and cannot thank them enough for the incomparable service and care they gave us. We are forever grateful for the memories--with many more we hope to come. They went above and beyond and it brought us both to tears. That is something you just can't buy and so etching I've never had from any other hotel. Hotel Monaco is top notch.
