I was happy with my stay at the Monaco. The decor in the hotel is exceptional and the rooms are also well appointed. They have a wine hour every evening from 5-6 but I missed it on all 3 days that I was there. If I have one complaint, it would be that they never brought a coffee maker up to my room after I requested for one on day 2 of my stay. The location is good but the area seems to be crowded with homeless people. Staff was pleasant and courteous.
