I can't say enough good things about this hotel. This family trip included a life threatening hospital stay, an elderly family member that doesn't get around well, a car crash... and so you get the idea. However the staff at the Monaco went out of their way to look after and entertain an elderly member of my family while I dealt with emergencies. They were helpful, friendly and accommodating to everyone and the door man even left a get well card in our room. The rooms are beautifully appointed, comfortable and they offer coffee and wine in the lobby every morning and evening. The restaurant has great food and a good chocolate martini. I will visit Portland again, I will have a better trip next time and I will without a doubt be staying at the Monaco.
