Historic hotel, beautiful architecture and spa like room. Carpet older looking but this is definitely more than as n a regular four star hotel. Everything was working in the room. It was clean and had minimal amenities and you could access or request other things at the front desk. Great morning beverage station in the lobby area. Friendly and helpful valet/front of building staff. Shower has one glass panel but gives a spa like feel.

Hotel's Favorite
Hotel- Kimpton Monaco Baltimore Date- June 2021 (4 nights) Overall: 5/5. Excellent. We always enjoy staying at this property, so much so that we extended our stay another two nights. This is getting more and more common some Kimpton properties! Once food and beverage service return to the usual service level, there will be little room left for improvement. Rewards Club Recognition- 5/5. Excellent. Upon arrival, we were thanked for our loyalty, and our room was upgraded. Both 600 Welcome amenity points and a $15 Food & Beverage credit were provided (‘Raid-the-Bodega’). We were also given an “Inner Circle VIP Amenity,” which included 2 bottles of water, a can of Sprite, a can of Coke, two chocolate and caramel candy bars, a bag of pistachios, and a bag of cashews! Wow! Some properties really impress us! The social password was good for a $30 additional F&B credit, once we ‘chose a ball’ from the treasure chest. In addition, we were also offered a 4pm late checkout for departure day. Loyalty has its rewards at this property, for sure. Staff- 5/5. Excellent. The bellman on duty, who went by ‘Captain,’ was welcoming and quick to help us load our bags and get them up to and into our room. At reception, Tamika checked us into the property, and although there was a line, she was quick to acknowledge each guest as they arrived and queued up. She gave each guest the attention they needed, while keeping the line moving relatively quickly. She thoroughly explained some of the modifications to the property at this point in the pandemic, and she provided a summary sheet, along with a menu for the restaurant (and some local food and beverage options). Later we chatted with Rebecca and Nina. They were so much fun to talk to, we could have chatted with them for hours! The night auditor, Erika, was engaging and eager to please during early morning coffee service. This staff made us feel sincerely welcome and valued at the property. Property Appearance & Maintenance- 5/5. Excellent. Exterior- The valet area was free of debris and the historical building was in reasonably good shape. We did notice safety netting over some of the stone details; probably a wise choice with pedestrians walking below. Interior- The lower level has some beautiful marble stairs that lead up to the lobby level. (Yes, there is an elevator too!) The lobby was well designed, and all furnishings and carpets were aesthetically pleasing and in good repair. The carpets in the hallways showed only the slightest bit of wear, and few to no scuffs could be found on the walls. Select window ledges show evidence of water damage. Accommodations- 5/5. Excellent. We were assigned a corner “Luxury Spa Suite” on the 8th floor, which faced southeast. It was roomy and offered a marble bathroom with plenty of space, along with a two-person jacuzzi tub (which was remarkably clean). The separate bedroom and living room offered the ability for one of us to work in one room, while the other relaxed in the other. The carpet had only the fewest small stains and a snag near the door to the bedroom; otherwise, it was in good shape. Furnishings were all in reasonably fine shape. The bed was comfortable, and the pillows were fluffy. We did initially have difficulty with the air conditioning in the living area, but once we informed the front desk, Fink/Derek, the head of maintenance was right on task! This room type is excellent and well worth paying a premium. Housekeeping- 5/5. Excellent. Our room was quite clean. The bathroom was spotless and the bathroom hair-free. The grout was clean, and the glass doors were spotless. The carpet was vacuumed, and even our ‘inspector cat’ (yes, a feline) found nothing unusual hiding underneath the furniture. Our interactions with the housekeeping staff were limited, but we were smiled at and received friendly greetings as we passed by in the hallways. One oddity was that the bar soap and body lotion were not from the usual Atelier Bloom product line; the bar soap was Dial brand, and the body lotion was ‘Basic Elements.’ Pool/Gym- 4/5. Very good. The fitness center is available 24/7, which was wonderful, since it’s so rare at hotels these days. There is no pool at this historic property. Breakfast/Meal Options- 3/5. Average. The restaurant is open only limited days, for limited hours, and offers a limited menu (see pic). That disappointed us since we used to love this restaurant and the ‘crispy fried oyster mushrooms’ they once offered. We tried a burger, some calamari, and the fruit with cream dessert our first night and then, the crispy chicken cutlet our second night; they all met expectations. The crispy chicken was especially tasty. No breakfast options are available. Umbrellas are available so even in rain guests can venture out to find morning food. The hotel does provide a listing of nearby restaurants to help guests stave off hunger. The bodega at the front desk is available in lieu of minibar access. The signature Kimpton social/wine hour is offered from 5p until 6p daily, and complementary coffee service is available in the morning at the front desk. Laundry- not evaluated. No laundry bag or pricing sheet was present in the room. An iron and ironing board was present in the room. Computer/Printer/WiFi- 5/5. Excellent. WiFi was strong throughout the hotel, and streaming was smooth and uninterrupted. Other- Pandemic Operations: This property does a remarkable job adhering to the continuing BALTIMORE INDOOR MASK REQUIREMENT and the mask requirement Kimpton advertises on its “Approach to Clean” website. All hotel staff, and nearly all guests, wore masks—and they wore them correctly (over both the nose and mouth). Signage was everywhere to remind you, and guests who were without masks were repeatedly and pro-actively offered them. A couple of guests were annoyed; most others seemed relieved, particularly the elderly and those with children. What a difficult balancing act this masking thing has become! Sanitizing stations and social distancing markers were present all throughout the hotel. We respected the effort the staff put into ensuring that even the most insecure guests felt safe & secure during their stay.

Loved this place. The lobby is unbelievably beautiful. Check in is one level above, can access either from the beautiful marble staircase or elevator. As inner circle members we were upgraded to a suite which was perfect. Corner room, doors which closed between the living area and bedroom, typical comfy Kimpton bed, bathroom with both shower and jacuzzi tub. My only complaint about the hotel is the area which is pretty gritty, not Kimpton's fault. Fully 50% of the restaurants in the area are closed, but the ones that remain are fine. Staff was friendly

We booked an impromptu trip to Baltimore as a birthday weekend getaway for our two small children who have birthdays in early August. The plan was to hit up the National Aquarium and do a silly night at the nearby Medieval Times for the kids. The priority for our hotel search was #1, walking distance to the aquarium, #2, a suite so we could put the kids to bed in their own room around their 8pm bedtime and still have space for my wife and I to enjoy/relax and #3, a place that looked nice. We booked the Kimpton Hotel Monaco because it satisfied both of these and I've had very good experiences with Kimptons in the past. The Good: I reached out to the hotel in advance of our arrival and they could not have been more welcoming / accommodating. The location: Very walkable if you want to do things around the inner harbor. The hotel building itself, the outside facade and the lobby, are beautiful. It really is a wonderful building. The Rest: It's hard to even write this because I'd never want anything to reflect poorly on the staff who did what they could to make our stay a success. But to be blunt, our room and hallways are in disrepair, and in desperate need of both routine maintenance and serious renovation. We had a corner suite which we were told was the nicest available room. The furniture was in shabby condition, we had large and obvious cracks in the sink, large sections of grout missing from tile, cigarette burns and holes in worn and torn carpeting, and surfaces we could tell have not been cleaned in a long time. This was a surprise since we have stayed in Kimpton hotels in other cities before and they have always been very nice. Before we arrived we made sure to ask for bedding for the pullout sofa in the suite so the kids could sleep there. There were sheets and blankets but no pillows. So upon our return to the room on our first night we had to wait the better part of an hour for someone to deliver pillows. Apparently there was only one person to help with service issues like this for the entire hotel at 9pm. That's a lot for one person! Which also makes me think the hotel might be going through some staffing/bandwidth issues. It might be pandemic related but who knows. The other thing that was a little odd was that we left our room at 9:30am the first morning and did not return until 4:30pm. One would think that would provide an ample window for housekeeping but upon our return nothing had been done. We didn't have plans to go out again with two exhausted kids so we let it go. The hotel looks like it once was something special in its glory days, but something needs to happen to get it back here. I'd call it a 3 star property with very friendly and accommodating staff, but perhaps stretched too thin to provide 4-5 star service.
