My wife and I spent one night at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago and had a nice experience. The reason we chose this hotel was because of the location, and it fit in our budget. The room was discounted online from $409 to $170ish. The hotel is located on the edge of the Chicago River and within the financial district.... More

I've stayed at the Monaco a number of times while attending training classes at my company. I've ALWAYS been pleased. The staff is excellent. Engaged, helpful, friendly - I can't say enough about them. They alone are a reason to return. The rooms are fun and a bit funky - what I expect from a Kimpton property. And they are... More

We checked in this morning with a large group. Much to our surprise, our rooms were ready in the late morning and all of our key packets were assembled and handed out upon our arrival. Winner! I got a corner room which was nice and large. Room was clean and very functional. My bed was rather comfortable. Bathroom was good.... More

The hotel is in a great location for walking to downtown attractions. The staff were very accommodating. Forgot our cell phone charger and they were able to provide us with one. Free coffee in the morning in the lobby. We had a room facing the water. Loved the window box seat for watching life go by. The only thing negative... More

I stayed here 2 nights in July with my boyfriend. The bed was super comfy, loved the window seat. Very clean and nice decor. The staff was all very friendly and called us by name. They had iced and hot coffee in the lobby in the morning, which made up for the lack of coffee maker in the room. The... More

It was a nice hotel. With no major fuss and that is what we were looking for. We were doing a trip just us and it turned out fine. Any issue was easily fixed. It was great location for us. As that we wanted to be able to get to millennium park doing yoga or riding bikes along the lake... More

Terrific staff, great location and lovely room. Really enjoyed staying there and the price was extremely reasonable. It was extremely cold, but the outdoor staff person was very accomodating getting us a taxi and helping with directions.

Hi Peter W, I am really glad our staff, location and room made for a great experience during your stay. I too just experienced the Chicago cold after moving from Cali, so I totally understand where you are coming from. It is a little fun to bundle up though. Come back when we have some warmer weather, the festivals in... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

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.
