Luxury near Home

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The window nook. Ombience Decor The Staff Location
Location: walking distance to all hot locations; bars, restaurants, city scenes
My husband and I had a wonderful mini-moon (short honeymoon) at the Hotel Monaco. It was everything we could have imagined and more. We loved the lounging nook that overlooked the river and enjoyed breakfast in bed there. The staff was available for everything and anything. They were so friendly and fast. We look forward to going there everytime we stay over in the city. The location was walking distance to all of the places we wanted to go.

Wonderful Experience

Posted Aug 25, 2014
I've stayed in the Chicago Monaco before, and it doesn't disappoint. This time I brought my daughter along with me, and she was very impressed. The Decor is elegant, the staff welcoming, and the price is right. I'll go back soon!

Fabulous hotel. Fabulous staff.

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: Staff. Beds. Bedding. Cleanliness. Rate. Location.
Cons: Nothing. They have it right already.
Location: Very centrally located. Magnificent mile is very close. The river is almost at the doorstep. Close to millennium park, the El, and the subway.
This is our second time staying at a Kimpton hotel. We stayed at one of their hotels in Boston and absolutely loved it. That is why we chose a Kimpton this time. The Hotel Monaco was fabulous. The rooms were very clean with great beds, great bedding and towels. The trademark bathrobes are a riot. The evening free wine bar is always a treat as is the constantly filled jugs of cold cucumber or lemon water. A very nice touch after a hot day in the sun. But what really makes the hotel special was their staff. Not only were they very professional and knowledgable but they were really genuine in their kindness. They always put in an extra effort to assist whenever they could. Whenever we travel through the states again we will always check to see if their is a Kimpton hotel in the area where we can stay. Thank you hotel Monaco.

Nice hotel in great location

Posted Aug 20, 2014
I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Monaco. The location is great as it is just off Michigan Avenue almost at the start of the magnificent mile where South Michigan Avenue becomes North Michigan Avenue so it is close to both all the attractions in grant park at not that far from the museum campus but also close to the attractions on and around the magnificent mile and not that far from Lincoln park. There is CTA station on pretty much every line within a short walk. The staff were friendly and the wine tasting hour between 5 and 6 pm is a nice bonus if you are in the hotel at the time.

Perfectly located boutique hotel

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: It was small and intimate but had all the appropriate amenities
Cons: A little painting in the halls
Our stay in Hotel Monaco (4 days) was very enjoyable. The staff was exceptionally helpful. We had loads of questions for the concierge and staff at the desk. all, from the gentleman managing the door, the concierge, the staff at the desk to those maintaining the rooms, were as patient as could be in listening and answering appropriately and also being helpful with extra info to our queries. There is wine served at 5 p.m. for all and it is quite a nice reception. One of the three rooms for our group was very large, the others were average. All rooms were quite clean were designed artistically. We felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was wonderful!! Very clean, helpful staff and accommodating ; I want to send a shout out to the doorman Michael who gave us great advice for things to see and do. It was our first time in Chicago and it won’t be our last. I look forward to staying at Hotel Monaco next time.

The view

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: The mini bed/ couch set next to the window
Cons: You should include a complementary buffet for breakfast to the guests.
Location: It's dead-center to downtown. You're near all the great landmarks and fun place in Chicago
The view from the window on the city is awesome. Especially the the mini bed that is set against the window, it gives a great view.
