This was my first time staying at a Kimpton - we chose Kimpton for the fact that they are LGBT-friendly. I was on crutches and stayed in the handicap-accessible room - in terms of rating it for that criteria, it was not a good room. It may check the boxes for being ADA-compliant, but if you're actually in a wheelchair,... More

My parents, son and myself came and spent 4 days in Chicago for my son and sisters birthday! This hotel was PERFECT. From the minute we walked in to the hotel to the moment we hopped in our Uber to go to the airport, we had the best stay. We were warmly greeted each time we came in the hotel.... More

I loved this hotel so much, I only have good things to say. You can never ever go wrong staying at any Kempton hotel, but this one especially. The hotel had a perfect location, right smack in the middle of the downtown. Everything was easily accessible by foot... mag mile, theatres, navy pier, museums. Nothing was more than a 10... More

Hotel Monaco is situated at the corner of Wabash and Wacker making it convenient to tons of shopping and eating options. Check in was quick and painless. Opt for the Kimpton Karma membership and get a $10 credit towards the mini bar. We splurged on a River View Mediterranean Spa Suite. Wow. Beautiful view looking west down the Chicago River... More

We recently stay here over a long weekend (3 nights) and were treated very well from the time we arrived. We were able to check in early so we dropped off our bags and hit the town. The staff are all friendly and helpful. You expect it front he front desk but I find it refreshing when everyone is professional... More

We splurged on the AV Serenity Suite for a week in July to celebrate my husband's birthday. IT WAS DIVINE! The one bedroom suite is beautifully decorated and quite large. The window nooks made it especially nice (those are available in all or most rooms, I believe). We had three nooks - two large enough for two to read books... More

Spent one night at the Kimpton Monaco Chicago and had to review because the staff was WONDERFUL. I had a very speedy, less than 24 hour stay between and it felt like I had been there for days with how the staff treated me. They were so kind, so helpful, and always asked if I needed anything at all. The... More

I can't say enough great things about this hotel! Our time there was fantastic and can't wait to go back! The room is excellent, happy hour is even better - but it's the staff that really make this place. Everyone works so hard to ensure that everything about your stay is perfect. Highly recommend this hotel!

My husband and I stayed the weekend at the Monaco and were expecting a bit more. There were some positives, so I will start with those.

Great establishment... pet friendly. This was a business visit, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was pricy but if you're staying here you probably are not worried about that... the rooms are also on the higher end. The location pits you smack in walking distance or short cab ride to all attractions and airport... You will not be... 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.
