Double Queen with River View, was an excellent location. Room was unique (window seats were a nice touch). Beds were comfortable and very clean. Wine Hour and Breakfast were a very nice touch and wish we took greater advantage of. Kimpton Monaco is just a few minutes walk to many of the most traversed locales (Kinzie/Michigan) and great if interested... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Monaco with our two kids, ages 6 and 8. The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting the city. It is close to the loop/business district but also just steps from Michigan Ave, Millennum Park, and River North. The hotel is very nice but also kid friendly. Our kids got a cute gift... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the feeling of classic luxury upon entering the hotel and our room. A chaise lounge in the corner, robes in the bathroom, and a great view of the river made for a very pleasant stay. The staff are friendly and attentive. A free wine bar is offered in the evening. The hotel is close to... More

We spent one wonderful night here with our two children (ages 7 & 9). Our room was not ready at arrival time, so we waited in the lobby for a bit, maybe 15 minutes. A staff member then apologized and offered to upgrade us to a suite -- quite a treat for us! The room was excellent. However, best part... More

This hotel is located in the heart of where you want to be. Easy to walk everywhere and some good views. Super helpful staff and the wine happy hour is welcome. Rooms are decorated in Art Deco style. Lost one star for the bathrooms which while large enough was outdated.

The hotel, although not extraordinary in any way was very acceptable in every way. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The room was furnished in an above-average way. It was great for a night, very happy with our selection. The rate was reasonable for the accommodation and service provided.

Great boutique hotel in the heart of Downtown Chicago. We had a late night check-in and was initially given a room on the 2nd floor. My husband didn't want to be so close to the street so we asked the staff if there were any other rooms available at a higher floor. Since it was a busy weekend, there were... More

This is one of the most comfortable and beautiful hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The rooms are stunning and the views are incredible; especially at night when the city is all lit up. From the customer service, to the tasty room service, to the incredible welcome... I could ask for more. This hotel is a... 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.
