“Good but not great. Comfortable beds but sparsely furnished.”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

The staff was warm and welcoming. Free coffee until 9 Am in the lobby and the room was of decent size but offered three small drawers in which to unpack - so most of our clothes stayed in the suitcase. There was no counter space on the desk so the in room coffee pot and utensils were on the bathroom counter, making for a very crowded sink area . There was one towel rack and that was inside the shower area so the used towels would get wet. The selection of TV channels was limited. All that said, it still was confortable and fairly classy and pretty good for the price.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. As a hotel that strives to be the best your feedback is very important to us. I am sorry to hear that your room did not have adequate storage for your belongings I will be sure to talk with our general manager about this to see if there is something we can do to avoid this problem in the future. We certainly hope that you will return the next time you are in town. Be sure to call us directly if you are and we will make arrangements for an extra set of drawers for you.

Warmest Regards,

Tessa Keleher

This is my second time at the hotel and this was as wonderful as the first. I am a member of the Kimpton InTouch program and it is one of the few hotels where I felt it made a difference without having to stay multiple times throughout the year.

I enjoyed the "Raid the mini-bar" reward, bringing a garden magazine to my door and having all of my favorite newspapers.
The wine and beer reception was great and the room was as well. I enjoyed being able to separate the bedroom from the living room.

The location can not be beat and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I will return.
Multiple discounts can be obtained through Travel Portland or the hotel web site.

What a great hotel! Cool rooms (we stayed in a roomy king suite - got a great deal online through their website), nice wine reception, very friendly & helpful staff, excellent location. The Red Star restaurant is very good, too.

Room Tip: We loved the king suite - very roomy and it is quiet up on the 10th floor.

Rooms are small but super cute and kitschy. The hotel staff is fantastic...friendly and always helpful. The hotel itself is centrally located in the middle of downtown with fantastic shopping and restaurants within walking distance or a quick bus/train ride away. My only complaint is the noisy neighbors I had...walls are a bit thin but overall enjoyed my stay!

We stayed at this hotel recently. The staff at this hotel are all very friendly, professional and informative.

Quirky........... we had the pleasure of meeting Timmy the hotel's dog, he is lovely! and we had a cute gold fish in our room to keep us company.

It was my husband's birthday while we stayed here........... lots of staff wished him a happy birthday, made a card for him and the champayne that was delivered to our room . All very nice touches.

We have stayed in many Kimpton Hotels........... all excellent, The Monaco staff definatley excel. THANK YOU.

If you are planning a trip to Portland Oregon, stay at this hotel, the staff are great, the rooms are lovely and its situated in a great location.
