This past Friday, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Monaco in Portland, Oregon. While we are Portland residents, we had planned on escaping the kiddos for an evening in order to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I had stayed at the Monaco in the past and knew how wonderful it was. We made our reservations and expected to have a lovely visit.
Holy cow! "Lovely" does not begin to describe our stay! Each and every staff member was kind, courteous, and gracious. The valets were welcoming, the front desk staff were gracious, and the accommodations--WOW! As a Kimpton In Touch member, I knew we would be treated to special perks, but this visit blew me away! We were ushered to the top floor to the largest suite I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. When making my reservation, I had mentioned that we would be staying at the Monaco for our anniversary. I had no idea that the hotel staff would have champagne chilling in an ice bucket, a box of chocolates waiting for us and have flower petals decorating our bed! It was simply incredible. The bed was, by far, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. (I'm convinced we need the exact same bed for our home--I slept so well)! It was fantastically over sized and the bedding was heavenly. We LOVED the wine/social hour and enjoyed the great selection of Oregon beers and wines. I thoroughly enjoyed my glass of the delicious sangria made by the Red Star Tavern, while listening to the phenomenal piano player, and meeting other couples staying at the hotel. And because of the perfect location of the hotel, we were able to go for a great run along the riverfront in the morning, and still make it back in plenty of time for breakfast and have time to lounge in our beautiful suite overlooking downtown, before checking out at noon. We ordered room service for breakfast and we loved it all--every morsel. Make sure to order a pot of coffee--it was delicious! Seriously, if you are looking for a place to stay in Portland, there is no better hotel. You will love every minute of your time at the Hotel Monaco.
