“Wonderful wonderful”
Reviewed August 17, 2010

I stayed here for two nights in July. It is a very nice hotel, located within walking distance to the water Pikes Place Market, Pioneer Square and some shopping centers. Its a nicely appointed, beautiful boutique hotel.

Staff was great; service was excellent.

Free wireless if you are a Kimpton member. They also gave me $10 free from the minibar for being a member!

Wine hour was a nice way to relax at the end of the day.

I turned down the complimentary pet goldfish. Unfortunately I missed the fortune teller and massage.

Pros: Location, great staff, beautiful hotel, wonderful service

Cons: can't think of any aside from not being able to get a late checkout

Summary: Loved this hotel. I'd definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

We stayed in Hotel Monaco as part of our 10-day long road trip through the American Northwest. We were given a nice room on the 11th floor with a view of the city. The room had everything we needed and had a character - the feature that I like about Kimpton hotels so much. The staff was nice and friendly and the location can't be beat - right in the heart of the city with easy access to everything.

My son and I just stayed a week at the Hotel Monaco in Seattle. The location was great; we were able to walk to WNBA, MLS, and MLB games. There were a couple issues with the service. We are members of the InTouch club and are supposed to get newspapers delivered to the room each day. We only got papers two of the five days. I asked the front desk after the fourth day, and they said "well, there are other guests, and sometimes we run out, but there's a whole bunch of papers over there against the wall". Then, I didn't get the paper the next day either. My young son was supposed to get a welcome gift as part of the InTouch club, but he received nothing. I asked about this the next morning, and they said there's a box where kids can go chose something (we got a deck of cards). Also, for the morning tea/coffee service in the lobby, the black tea ran out very early each day as did the lemonade/tea in the afternoon. It seems there's just a half hearted effort for these "perks". They should either support the service or not. Other than these things, the hotel was fine. The room was nice; the food in the restaurant was great. We loved our pet fish (Fred).

As usual, my stay the the Kimpton hotel, this time Hotel Monaco in Seattle, was excellent. The staff is great, friendly, very helpful, and the hotel itself is luxurious and comfortable. Especially enjoy the free wine tasting each afternoon, and comfortable beds. I recommend any Kimpton, and the Hotel Monaco was a treat!

Absolutely the best service, location, and rooms!
We went for a quick getaway for our 16 year anniversary. The surprise bottle of champagne and wine tasting were just a few of the amazing features of this hotel! It seemed very family and pet friendly as well. I work for an airline and we have stayed in many different types of hotels (price ranges) in our 16 years together, and this is our favorite so far! I would recommend this to everyone.....really!

I highly recommend the Hotel Monaco. The location is beyond amazing being so close to everything you would want to get to in Seattle. The staff was great but by far the best part was the food and restaurant service. My wife and I highly recommend the hotel if you want a nice place to stay. It is expensive but every dollar is worth it.

We live near Seattle, but stayed at Hotel Monaco to enjoy the Seafair Parade without the hastle of traffic. Before we arrived I received a very helpful e-mail from the hotel explaining the street closures for the parade and other activities in the area to enjoy. We arrive early and weren't able to check in yet but enjoyed complimentary Ice Tea, lemonade and popcorn in the beautiful lobby and people watched. Close to shopping, Pioneer Square Staff and Pike Place Market. Staff were very nice and helpful. The room was good sized with 2 comfortable queen beds. and a nice area to read. Extremely clean and nice linens on the bed. We brought our dog and the hotel goes the extra mile for your pets. I wondered why they asked how to spell her name when we checked in. They brought up a duel food and water bowel with her name on it, a bottle of water and a bag of doggie treats. The hotel will bring you a goldfish to keep you company inyour room!!! They have complimentary wine reception in the everning from 5-6. We had dinner in the hotel and family members enjoyed the halibut, pizza and burgers. Wait staff wa excellent. They had a nice area reserved for hotel guests to watch the parade so it was very relaxing. Slept soundly and ordered room service for breakfast. Food was very good, but not very hot::(:(.
Check out was easy and accurate. We loved everything about our stay, except for the $29 parking!!
