We stayed two nights at the Monaco in January--our first time but probably not our last. It was perfect for a couple's quick getaway. I got a great rate to begin with, but upon arrival we were upgraded to a riverview room (something i probably could have requested but did not realize) and given a $10 card to use for items in the mini bar, a very nice touch. (I had joined the free Kimpton rewards program online--not sure if the little gift was because of that or if they were giving these to all guests at the hotel.) Our room was nicely decorated and pretty roomy, for a boutique hotel. The staff seemed very willing to help with any questions. We enjoyed the wine hour in the lobby one of the evenings, although it was a bit drafty for those who had to sit closer to the doors (there is a fireplace on the far wall--seats on the couch and chairs there get quickly taken). The lobby also offers coffee and tea from 6 to 9am. (A poster in the elevator says that hot cider and cocoa is offered from 2 to 4pm, but i saw no evidence of this.0 We especially loved the location of the hotel--we could walk to the Goodman theater and to shopping, as well as many restaurants.
We often take our three children to Chicago--the Hotel Monaco is not the kind of place for families with young kids. But next time we head to the city by ourselves, we will definitely keep the Monaco in mind.
