I arrived at the Hotel Monaco quite jetlagged after a flight from Australia. Even though I arrived at midday, my room was ready and the check in process quick & corteous. My Suite faced onto Geary Street (2nd floor) but I found the room lovely and quiet and easily fell into a jetlagged sleep for the afternoon !
The room I stayed in was lovely - a separate lounge with TV, a huge plasma in the bedroom. Overall very clean and the furnishings unique, giving real character to the room, so it didn't feel like one of 1000 as the big chains can. The bed was divine - very comfotable and the bathroom beautifully appointed. I immediately felt very comfortable.
Strolling into downtown area was just an easy two block walk to Union Square past lots of lovely galleries & shops. The friendly Res staff gave me a map & suggested a walking tour.
Room service that night was great.
No complaints at all from me - the hotel was everything I expected and more - I'd definately recommend it.
