First time we have stayed here but for sure we will be back.
As usual we put our trust in Tripadvisor and we came up trumps with The Monaco. As soon as our taxi dropped us off we knew we had made the right decision. The staff were the most welcoming we have experienced in a major city for a long time.
We booked a deluxe room and we were given 716 on the top floor, not much of a view but incredibly quite. Very convenient for everything ,just a couple of blocks from Union Square.
The concierge on duty for most of our stay was very helpful and suggested a great little restaurant Kim Than which is a 5 minute walk up Geary St.
Some very nice touches like the complimentary wine and cheese hour .
The Grand Cafe on site restaurant is great fun and a wonderful decor .
The hotel is also pet friendly.
This will be our base for any future visits to San Francisco!
