This is by no means the least expensive hotel in Portland, but in terms of atmosphere and location it can't be beat. You are in easy walking distance of everything- five blocks from
Powells Books, three from Pioneer Square, the same block as the Nike store and a number of cute boutiques. The attached restaurant is fabulous. There are free bikes, which we took advantage of, and the fitness room is first rate. The staff booked restaurants for us and helped us a number of ways. We had a double queen suite, which was not particularly spacious, for a suite, but quiet and comfortable. I was traveling with kids, and they gave each of them a stuffed animal and brought a goldfish to our room for our stay! Basically the main reason to stay at a Kimpton is that you get a level of service and amenities which is almost comparable to the Four Seasons.
What set this hotel apart from other Kimptons I've stayed at was the wine reception from 4-6. At other Kimptons there might be a house red and a house white, and a few snacks. At the Portland Monaco they had an assortment of local wines, and Perrier, and a microbrew, and a guy playing a marimba (looks like a giant xylophone) AND paints and canvases for kids to paint with! There was a huge and happy crowd enjoying the music, and basically it was one of the best scenes we encountered in Portland. Right in our own hotel. Fantastic. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
