“Not sure who loved it more - me or my dog”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

So pleasantly surprised with the Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake City! The location was perfect - right in the heart of downtown SLC, close to restaurants, Squatters Brewery, Temple Square and the capitol. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was beautifully appointed, complete with a comfy bed, water/food bowls, and treats for our dog. Not only does the Hotel Monaco allow dogs, they welcome them with open arms.

After talking to the assistant manager during the complimentary wine/hors d'oeuvres welcome, we received a message saying they would be providing breakfast for us at no charge. To top it off, we returned to our room after dinner to find a bottle of champagne on ice, chocolate truffles, and a sweet note mentioning a few of the details we had shared with the assistant manager about our road trip. They were definitely paying attention.

We are looking forward to another opportunity to stay at the Hotel Monaco in downtown Salt Lake City!

This is the only place to stay in Salt Lake City. Great location downtown, you can walk to all the sights and now they have opened a fabulous shopping center with a Nordstrom. Great outdoor spaces thru out the city. The staff at the Monaco is wonderful, very helpful and well informed about the area. Wine in the lobby in the evenings and they have a well stocked candy counter for that quick treat on your way upstairs. Rooms are well maintained and very quiet. Try it once and you'll quickly add it to your list of favorites.

We stayed here in April and it is a perfect central location. The stay was perfect and the beds were soooooooooooo comfortable. We loved our pet fish for the night, and the candy bowl. I never expected to see so many homeless people, but when they asked for money they were usually polite. Going out alone was a little unnerving as they were everywhere close to the hotel, I felt badly for them, but also know that with two children, pulling out your wallet for a stranger is not the safest thing...."Elizabeth Smart kidnapping".

This was my second time staying at the Hotel Monaco. I am absolutely in love with everything about this hotel. The decor is beautiful, the rooms are spotless, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Bambara restaurant is good, but pricy. I prefer their room service menu to the actual menu. My favorite touches of the hotel include the pet fish they deliver to your room during your stay, the leopard print robes, the yoga mat and in room yoga programs, and the happy hour/massages they offer each evening. The front desk scheduled a taxi for me to get back to the airport and provided me with a later checkout. They also had toothpaste brought up when I forgot mine. They are very reasonably priced too. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Within walking distance to the convention center, restaurants, and City Creek Mall. Thank you Hotel Monaco! It was a great stay and I am sorry to be leaving!

Room Tip: I was in 1012. Roomy and had a pretty view of the city.

While a bit on the pricey side with the room rates and only Valet parking, they go out of their way to make sure you get your value for the money spent. From the wine tasting in the afternoon, to the citrus water and coffee and tea that are always available, to the friendly people at the counter and in the Valet, they go out of their way to make sure you are happy.

The rooms are attractive and comfortable and most everything downtown is within walking distance.

The Restaurant is rated highly and the menu is varied. Everything served in A la carte so it is not a cheap place to eat, but they do a good job on the food and you won't go away hungry.

Overall they do a good job. I would stay there again when I am in town.

Room Tip: After booking your stay, they will e-mail you an offer to upgrade your room at a discount if the roo...

Really different and quaint rooms.
Happy hour with wine for all guests.
Gift at check in for frequent stay guests.
Good service that could be exceptional.
Restaurant Bambara is good but really overpriced even for a drink. If they revisited this they would get a lot of business travelers that would dine or drink here than find another place in the cold.
The next door bar - steps away - Red Door I think is a nice place.

We had a 1 bedroom suite which was large and roomy. The bed is very comfortable, but it appears that everything in the room is for sale: water $8, socks$15, minibar is good but pricey. No coffee maker (guess they will bring you one). The shower is dated and the hot water in the shower was fickle at best with low pressure.

Two orders of room service = 2 mistakes, red wine instead of white and forgotten breakfast meal! I know I sound picky but I travel a lot and for the price it didn't live up to expectations. Friendly people though.
