Kimpton Monaco is small and cosy interesting hotel on the river. You are in a minute from Michigan av. or State street and Union station is not far away. I enjoyed in spacious room inspite of not nice wiev. The bed was perfect.
Staff is excellent from bell boy to the concierge. I hope I'll be back soon.

Great staff here and the potential for excellence, however my first night was way below par. We hired a suite (not inexpensive) but in spite of assurances that the sofa-bed would be made up in readiness from my return from supper, we had to chase and chase to get this implemented. Have to say the quality of the sofa-bed was more budget hotel/motel than up-market boutique.
Shame, because, it's in a great location with great staff.

This hotel is in the middle of everything and small enough to remember my name every time I walked in the door. I was in Chi town for a military graduation and my birthday, and the concierge and doorman were amazing. The room was beautiful and clean, and the complimentary HH each night made it feel like home! I absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the theater district or for Macys (formerly historic Marshall Fields) shopping.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a window seat facing the river.

Our family just returned from a wonderful stay at Hotel Monaco. Charles the concierge was very helpful with our early check-in. The suite was beautiful, with great river views from the four cool window benches. Our daughters loved them. Loved the corner suite. The staff was fantastic with our kids. Thanks so much for sending the birthday surprise for Lily. She was delighted. The in room fish was a big hit with both of our daughters. My husband and I enjoyed the restaurant - a nice surprise.

Room Tip: Suite was very special. 14th floor location provided great views.

My wife and I stayed here a couple weeks ago to celebrate our anniversary and the hotel did not disappoint. A truly fantastic (and affordable) boutique hotel in the heart of Chicago. Easy access to train, chicago river boats, running/walking paths, and restaurants. This hotel is a great choice for business or pleasure. Kimpton is now our hotel chain of choice!

For our trip to chicago, we were looking for something in downtown chicago which was affordable and nice. Monaco fits the bill perfectly ! Right in the center of the city, close to the riverwalk and most Chicago attractions are within a short walk or a short cab ride.. The only star I removed was for the fact that we got a room with restricted view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view
