We have been staying at Kimpton properties for many years now and have had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Monaco in Portland a couple of times previous.
As with the previous visits, the service was fantastic. While there were a few minor glitches, it was the way that they were handled that sets the Hotel Monaco apart from other hotels.
In addition, the programs that are offered to engage guests are well thought out. There is a wine hour in the lobby every evening and they also have a large jenga game to keep you entertained. There is an area for the kids to paint and do some artwork with the parents enjoy that wine hour and I also believe there is an ice cream hour or 2 in the afternoon.
I would highly recommend this hotel to others, and will certainly continue to stay at the Monaco when I am in Portland again.
