Unique Hotel in Chicago

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pros: The uniqueness of the rooms gave the stay a fun aspect, as well as the robes in the bathrooms!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Within walking distance of Michigan Avenue. It was super close to the river and we had a great walk to the lakefront.
We were warmly greeted by the bellman who was very friendly and helped us to our rooms. The rooms were unique and "fun" with bright cushions and pillows in the windowsills. There were high ceilings which was awesome. Also, complimentary coffee and newspapers in the lobby in the morning were nice, as well as the wine happy hour in the evening!

Convenient location for government business.

Posted Feb 9, 2017
Pros: See above.
Cons: Coffee pot in the room.
Location: Good restaurants; great variety of architecture in the area; river front accommodations are attractive, easy access to museums & lakefront.
The location is very convenient for me for work and parking. Good restaurants are nearby. Staff are very accommodating and check-in is a breeze. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the design of the rooms is relaxing. I always enjoy my stay at Monaco and other Kimpton locations.

Great location and wonderful staff!

Posted Feb 9, 2017
We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Monaco. The location is fabulous, within walking distance of Mag Mile, State Street and the theater district. We upgraded to a river view room and it was 100% worth it. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

All the staff were very inviting and friendly. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. I was traveling for work and had a meeting in the morning. They held my bags so I could check out of my room, and when I returned they brought around my car and loaded up my bags for me. I know a lot of hotels do things like this, but it was the friendly staff that made the whole experience that much better.

Pros: Friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of premises, comfort of the room, nice restaurant. Excellent value!
Location: Ideal Loop location, short walk to Millennium Park, Art Institute, or if you want to go north of the river, short walk to Michigan Ave shops.
I live in the suburbs and came downtown to spend a weekend with an out of town friend. The location of this hotel was perfect for all the things we wanted to do. The staff was extremely helpful, the property is very well kept and decor is lovely. Not too big but very nice, cozy lobby. I would definitely stay there again.

great place to stay

Posted Jan 13, 2017
Great place to stay. Restaurant/bar is a good place to hang if it is 10 below and you don't want to venture outside.

We really appreciated how dog friendly they were. We will be staying at Kimptons with our puppy whenever possible.

Great location downtown

Posted Jan 3, 2017
Excellent stay from start to finish. The staff are amazingly friendly and go out of their way to help. Comfortable, clean, and the little touches make it feel just like home. The kids LOVED the bay windows, where they could sit and enjoy the views while relaxing and reading in the room.

Nice hotel, but noisy

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Beginning at 5 am we could hear the L making its turn a block away. Every few minutes we would hear it. Not as bad as being right across from it, but still very noisy. Advice - ask for a room facing away from the L.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We don't often have noise issues with the L, but every so often in the cold it's extra squeaky! We're sorry you had to hear that in the morning, and will gladly get you a room away on your next visit!

What matters

Posted Dec 22, 2016
So this hotel may not look impressive from either the outside or on the inside, but it delivers in all the important ways.
