It was my first time staying at a Kimpton hotel, and definitely will not be my last! From the genuine welcoming greeting at the hotel lobby, throughout out our stay to checkout- the team at the Hotel Monaco went above and beyond our expectations! My travel partner and I were exhausted from a long drive to Seattle from Northern California, and frankly, I was a little apprehensive at first bringing my 65 (+or- a few lbs) :) golden retriever into a downtown boutique hotel. The website for the hotel, had a pet registration, and extended services to my best friend (which put me at ease about our check in) and the reservation desk was more than happy to accommodate. The room was immaculate, quiet, nicely appointed, and everything was in it's place- Obviously the housekeeping staff pay great attention to detail as (I did inspect as I welcomed my first impression.) No more than ten minutes later, doggy bowls and a plush doggy lounge were brought to the room for Kylie... Nice touch!
I just wanted to sit in the huge tub and melt down for a while, but had to get a bite to eat so after I made sure Kylie was comfortable,I changed out of my driving comfies, and went down to the restaurant Sazarac. The menu had just about something for everyone, service was friendly, and the price-points were surprisingly reasonable for a hotel restaurant of this caliber. All in all, l have to say The Hotel Monaco was a pleasant surprise- You can even ask Aquanetta my temporary pet goldfish!
