“Perfect location and beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

My stay in Seattle was made more memorable by staying at such a great hotel. From all the friendly staff, to the spacious rooms, to the very good restaurant on-site, and the central location in the city the Hotel Monaco Seattle made my trip even better. The hotel is only a block away from the light rail, so getting to the hotel from the airport was a breeze. Since the hotel is centrally located it was also very easy to walk to Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Safeco Field and the numerous ferries. Also the stay was bought to another level with a free happy hour each night which included free wine, beer, sangria and appetizers. I hope everyone else gets to enjoy an experience like mine not only in Seattle, but also at the Hotel Monaco Seattle.

I also received a free bottle of wine by checking in on Yelp which may not seem like a big deal, but the staff was so friendly when I showed them I checked in and they sent the wine right up to the room. I know sometimes when you get something for free anywhere a staff member may give you a dirty look or pretend they don't know about a special. But not at the Hotel Monaco Seattle, they instantly knew about the free bottle of wine for checking in and was very happy to send it to our room.

The entire stay was excellent. From check in to check out the staff was nice, quick and helpful. Love wine hour, coffee in the morning and fruit infused water all day. Rooms were spacious and the location was perfect, walking distance to everything!

Room Tip: King Deluxe was perfect for two people for a long weekend.

Stayed here for a business trip

Room was on the 11th floor.

Decor was a little different but the room was very roomy and comfortable

Staff was great and very willing to help with directions or suggestions.

Arrived late and was able to get thin crust pizza in their resturant. Was very good

Overall great stay and I would stay there again.

Spent the weekend here and really enjoyed the ambience and location. Staff was friendly and shared a dining coupon at check in for Sazerac next door. They have a wine hour in the lobby that was quite nice and well attended allowing us to chat up the other guests. All in all a fun place to call home for a day or two.

This was a truly fantastic experience. The property was wonderful and rooms were well appointed, comfortable, and clean but it was the staff that made our stay spectacular. Everyone from the bellhop to the concierge went out of their way to make our stay special. The front desk staff were incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and caring. They remembered our name, asked how things were once we went, and just made us feel at home. I'm leaving out some that made our stay spectacular but Ethan, Kevin, Peter, & Dan were incredibly warm and kind individuals. We will miss the Monaco and look forward to returning soon!

Room Tip: The premiere floors (10 & 11) were nice!

Our small group was treated like royalty throughout our weekend by the wonderful staff. Coffee and newspaper downstairs each morning, cheery hellos from all, spacious and very clean rooms, wonderful beds. Maybe next time I'll take my wife!

The perfect seattle weekend...loved the hotel decor, super cool staff and overall funky vibe that The Monaco Seattle oozes!! This hotel is like the "cool soccer mom car" in the hotel world...leave the mini can behind and join the fun. Can't think of a single complaint about this hotel from our first experience with the vallet to check out.
