We got a great deal on this top rated hotel. It must have been off-peak season to visit Portland (hence the constant rain). We were late getting to Hotel Monaco but were greeted kindly by the front desk staff. She understood how tired we were and when it was going to take just another minute to check us into the system, she apologized and had us sit in their impressive lobby. We got the king sized room which was amazing. It was bigger than most apartments and the price was a steal. It was tastefully decorated and unlike other hotels, it was laid out in a very functional and liveable way. The room was quiet too, you couldn't hear any street noise and we never heard anyone at all in the halls. And since we were in Portland, they put up wallpaper and "put a bird on it". The bathroom was great, bed comfortable, and helpful magazines to inform us about where to go. They even had free New York Times on Sunday which was a great surprise for me, I'm used to the USA Today in hotels. Also every night there was a happy hour in the lobby with drinks, piano playing, and conversation. They have every supply you need if you forget anything.
Everyone was nice and the hotel was classy but definitely not pretentious. My wife and I are now going to seek out other Kimpton hotels when we travel.
