This was one of a number if stays at the Monaco. Wonderfully consistent although a couple of niggles. After a long haul flight I was kept waiting 10-15 mins at checkin, then I got charged almost double the amount for one night. They said they would sort it and call me but never did. Greatcoat ion and the comfiest beds however. Would be even better if they sorted out the tv stations :-)

I loved staying at this hotel! The decor is simply funky but wonderful! The staff was extremely helpful. Hotel Monaco treats guests to a wonderful free (donation to a local charity!) happy hour. They are also very pet friendly. The valet helped with directions and questions. A great place to stay!

The typical funky decor that Klimpton/Monaco is known for. The staff is friendly and helpful.
The location is excellent and the rooms are clean. Be sure to ask for a quiet room at reservation time, this is a busy city and as such, expect noise.
I liked this Monaco a little better than our Seattle Monaco.

Stayed here with a friend on a business trip 2 years in a row. Both times it was rainy and cold in Portland but the hotel is so beautiful and with such warm, friendly employees that even the weather seemed like a treat. If this hotel were in Seattle, I might want to sell my house and move in! The rooms are gorgeous. The entire hotel reminded me of Europe with very hight ceilings and ornate millwork. The food is fantastic! I recommend room service for breakfast. The few pets I saw looked quite happy too. The price is amazingly reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask what the view is outside of your windows. I was fine with any of them.

Green Features: The hotel is very clean and fresh smelling. The sheets are only washed every night if you want them to be.

They have a warm friendly staff , great location, nice rooms, great lobby ...they really go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is enjoyable. They have great extras such as water and fruit available all day, coffee and a huge selection of papers in the morning, and evening wine and beer all in the lobby and all complimentary! The friendly service really stood out....everyone was warm and helpful...very unusual for a city hotel.

This hotel truly deserves five stars for its lively ambiance and stylish setting. On the last night of our vacation we had tickets to Feast Portland and opted to stay here for convenience—but we ended up loving the hotel on its own merits. Upon checking in (a bit early, thank you), we immediately embraced our quiet room on the 9th floor with its cushy king bed and plenty of amenities (though the minibar prices were rather steep). The decor is refreshingly cheeky; sort of like Jonathan Adler-gone-wild with retro-70s wackiness. Bold colors, broad strokes, clashing patterns, etc. It may not be for everyone, but we loved it. However, the best part was the delightful happy hour. When was the last time you stayed in a hotel with miniature golf, wii, and an art-painting station in the lobby? Can you say, like, NEVER? We had so much fun here and offer major thumbs-up to Kimpton for creating such an extraordinary place for travelers to relax, unwind, and have a total blast.

Room Tip: Our 9th-floor room was super dark and quiet. We didn't hear a peep.
