Smackdab in the center of downtown Chicago on the River, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago combines a desirable Loop location with a fun design, warm hospitality, and Kimpton touches like complimentary nightly wine hour. From your newly renovated guestroom or suite, take in the city lights and river views from your window seat (tip: the perfect backdrop for photos), then head downstairs to our new Belgian bistro-inspired mussel & beer bar, Fisk & Co, featuring a mouthwatering menu of mussels, oysters, steak frites, and burgers.

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.

I arrived at the Hotel Monaco fairly early this week and was happy that I was able to check in. I was hoping for a nice upgrade but due to the St. Patrick's Day weekend, I was given a small upgrade to a riverview king. The view of the river is OK, but it's to the side so

Very nice property in an excellent location. The renovation appears to have gone quite well. Lobby area is a bit small — but elegant. The elevators are swift and never had to wait. Service was impeccable. My only complaint would be the 58 dollar per night parking fee. It’s

We are thinking of staying here next week. Are there casual restaurants in the area?
This hotel is in a very central location with lots of choices for dining. I am not sure what type of food "casual" is but unless you are going to an upscale, expensive restaurant, you can dress in casual attire at just about any restaurant in Chicago.

We received the window seat without upgrading. But we are Kimpton members which is a free sign up and they have us a $10 coupon. So that may be why we received the reading nook. It was fun to sit and read there one afternoon.

It's a short walk to the train, about a block. We took the train to Wrigley Field.
