Dear Big Mako!
Thanks for the nice notes, and hope that you will come back and see us soon - lets raise a glass or two at wine hour!
At check-in my fiancee and I were commenting on the goldfish program and how you could get one sent to your room. Unfortunately none were available and didn't really want one anyways but the front desk called us later just to double check if we wanted a goldfish and if we did, they could make it happen. We declined but the offer showed that Kimpton and it's employees at Hotel Monaco Seattle actually care about their guests and pay attention to their needs. (Even if you mention something in passing!)
Lastly, I love the fact that they allow pets, it's make the hotel less sterile and more like home. And you couldn't even guess they allow pets because it is SO clean and new smelling! Such a great property and hotel group in general. We can't wait to come back.
Thank you for being so awesome : )
Thanks for this, I believe that is a specialty of Kimpton hotels, you are not just another room number you actually the a chance to connect with the staff and the hotel. I am sorry that we were out of goldfish - we have about 100 of them, but they are very popular with families and travelers however they do tell stories of their adventures when we put them back in the big tank.
Come back from Alaska soon and make it a perfect stay with dinner in Sazerac, - the roast chicken will change your life!
Best hotel in the best location! My first trip to Seattle was made perfect because of this exceptional hotel. While it may be part of a hotel chain, it offers attentive, personalized service. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The wine hour is a perfect way to wind down at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. The location is convenient to public transportation, Pike Place Market, museums, shopping, and restaurants.
Thanks so much! you pretty much hit all the high notes! We are do have a great location and the rooms which we recently remodeled are great but those folks behind the desk with a genuine smile and williness to do which make your stay! We have 3 great Kimptons in Seattle and all three are the perfect way to end a day - the Alexis on 1st, the Monaco - Sazerac and then the wonderful Vintage Park with Tulio and the besk smoked salmon ravioli that you will dream of for a long long time.
Made reservations here and spent two nights at this upscale hotel. Excellent location on Front Street walkable to Fish Market, many fine restaurants and stores and the monorail. The staff was friendly and courteous rooms were large and very well appointed with upscale sound system the TV reception was poor.
Beds and furniture were comfortable and attractive. All in all a good value for the money. Will not disappoint!
hey Dr. Z! thanks for the great notes. The TV reception must have been an issue for the time you were with us as it isnt the norm. The location is perfect, just far enough away from the maddening crowd at Westlake but close enough that you can walk to pretty much everything, Seattle is a great walking place and eating never stops! our brilliant concierge Dan can set you up for everything from dinner to a late night hot spot. just let us know.
Great helpful staff and nice property! I live in Seattle so don't often get to stay in town, but had some work done on the house so used the Monaco recently. Very impressed! Like all Kimptons, super helpful desk staff and great on property restaurant (Sazerac). This is a well run property and for tourists, very convenient to all of Seattle's downtown sights.
A perfect staycation! we have a huge number of guests who are in the hotel when those hardwoods or painting of the house means you need to get out of the home! What an odd but great way to explore your own city. Those super helpful desk people are some of the craziest and happiest folks we can find. I appreciate you mentioning them.
I usually stay at the Sheraton when I am in Seattle but they weren't "in policy" for my company so I stayed at the Monaco for my most recent trip. My group and I didn't check in until 11pm yet there were still two people working at the front desk so no one had to wait very long. I love the $10 room snack/mini bar credit and free wifi when you're a Kimpton Rewards member. I had forgotten my iPhone 5 and Kindle charger and the staff very early in the morning was able to charge both for me while I went on a run.
We are only about 3 blocks from the Sheraton but about 300 years away from how we run our hotels. Kimpton believes that you should have a little more fun in life and we work hard to focus on making you so much more than just a room number "room 2703 checking out' sounds a little like prison. I pick staff not for their ability to fit into a slot on paper, but pick them if they like to have people over to their house for dinner or have a hobby where they hang with great likeminded folk and it shows! Delighted that you recognize that all our Kimptons have the same emotion attached to the name - the world needs a little more Kimpton!
