Nice modern and clean hotel with sleek design. Rooms are a nice size with cool modern bathrooms and clean efficient gym. The check in staff were not much help. Kind of rude actually and I'm from Chicago so it's not that. They did not bother to tell us about the evening wine reception. We were surprised to see a lobby...

We wanted a hotel that wasn't too far from the PrivateBank Theater, since the main event of our weekend trip was seeing Hamilton. We have stayed at Kimpton properties before with great experiences, so I wanted to try the Hotel Monaco since it was a very reasonable price. I did not pay for a river view room, and that is...

The staff was friendly and the doormen were exceptional. The room was decent size and clean. The hot cocoa hour was delicious, but needed stirs to mix the chocolates. In room 1010 the bathroom had the following problems; the tile around the tub spout had been replaced around and it looked horrible, like a 10 year old had repaired it....

I love this hotel w the big window seats & awesome views. Great location, and a free wine hour can't be beat. Friendly welcoming staff too. But wow, the free hot chocolate in the afternoon was undrinkable this visit, and when I asked for a blanket I think they must have thought it was for a dog at this pet...

We stayed here for the Ireland V All Blacks rugby game in November. The hotel was conveniently located right across the road from The Emerald Loop, a fun spot. Our room was smallish but completely met our needs. Nice comfortable bed, and lovely toiletries. The location was perfect - poised in between The Loop and the Magnificent Mile. Front desk...

An outstanding hotel with an excellent staff who are committed to customer care and comfort. We enjoyed the wine and cider hour from 5-6 P.M. Unfortunately are room was not ready as we checked in early. The staff kept our bags securely as we asked for advice on nearby restaurant/coffee shops to visit. We are ready to go hit the...

Giving it two stars because it's obviously very pretty, clean, and the bed is nice and comfy, but what good is all that when the construction crew starts hammering away in the room next to you at 7 - I repeat - 7am?? I think it was awful of them to have given me that room, especially since I checked...

LOVED this hotel for our Girl's weekend! Short walk to Macy's (old Marshall Fields), gorgeous decor, lots of good restaurants near by. Cocktail hour was nice: appetizers, wine, and mulled cider with spirits for the blustery day. The hot cocoa bar in the afternoon was very welcome as well. Our room had window seats overlooking the river and Trump Tower...

Stayed here for 5 nights on business. Was an excellent hotel, well situated near the river and restaurants and bars. Cool window seats in the rooms, comfy beds, good bathrooms. Would definitely stay again if in town.

As always the Kimpton hotels do not fail. I took my sisters to the Kimpton Monaco for a girls weekend away. They have never been and I wanted to share how awesome the hospitality is at every Kimpton.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
