We stayed at the Monaco for New Year's Eve and the night of the 1st. We had a corner room on the 7th floor, which was wonderful. High ceilings, spacious, great linens, clean, and a GREAT bathroom. It was my birthday, and they sent a bottle of wine for us to celebrate with, "just because...". That level of service/attention to detail is special, and just not seen at many other hotel chains.
That being said, the restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. We had a larger party for breakfast(7). Our server was the bartender and she was prompt. However, our food took exceptionally long to arrive. And some meals were delivered 15 minutes after the first plate was delivered. Some of the meals were no longer hot. Puzzling, because the restaurant was not that busy. Lots of open tables. Complaints were met with 20% off our bill.
The gym has been moved due to remodeling. Not as nice or spacious as it used to be. Perhaps it will be moved back once the remodel is completed.
