I always try to stay in a Kimpton Hotel when I travel because of their unique surroundings and attention to guest detail. This was my first stay at the Hotel Monaco and it lived up to my expectations. It sits in the perfect locaion for walking to the Michigan Ave Shops and Restaurants and also to the downtown stores and...

Hotel was nice and very clean with friendly staff. Free wine receptions and Internet a bonus. Great downtown location. Be sure to check out the restaurant directly across the street. If you stay on this hotel ask for a street view on the front if available. Our room faced a building under renos with much ongoing construction work so kept...

I stayed at the Monaco for one night (first time there or a Kimpton hotel in general) and was so impressed that I would recommend it to anyone in heartbeat and stay there again. I had a river view room which was awesome because it overlooked the river and Trump Tower was right in front. The nook in the window...

I was very excited to stay at the hotel after reading reviews. Sadly I was really disappointed with the room and hotel. The decor was modern but uncomfortable. The bathroom was in need of updating. The room service was yucky (ordered a grilled cheese that came on whole grain bread halfway cooked). If you are an avid traveler and have...

Hotel Monaco was phenomenal. This was our first stay at the Monaco and a Kimpton Hotel. We were very impressed!!

Unfortunately my first room was on level 5, looking out on an internal block, with very noisy machinery - air conditioners? - below.
