Great location, great room

We stayed in the Mediterranean suite with window nooks. Both my wife and I loved the window nooks. Great places to watch the city, great views, and great for curling up with a book. Location was great with easy quick access to metro. We also found close (and cheaper) parking nearby. We would come back here.

Hotel Monaco.......great location and swank place!

This is a great option if you want to be right in the middle of everything and also have the bonus of a bar on the first floor that not only has great bartenders and specialty house drinks but a GREAT micro brew selection on tap of local Chicago brews! Cant beat this place.

24 hours in Chicago

My husband and I spent 24 hours in Chicago to attend a show and we had the best time ever! At Hotel Monaco we felt like queen and king; staff is super nice and attentive to any minimum detail. It was not our first time at hotel Monaco and it won't be our last!

Winter Market

Enjoyed the German Winter market . Easy walking to restaurants (Billy Goat tavern and House of Blues), Michigan avenue for shopping and Macy's. We enjoyed the wine tasting sponsored by the hotel in their lobby early evening, great way to start the nightlife activities.

Nice restaurant/bar next door. Rooms are good sized and if you are looking for something a little different, the Monaco does a credible job.

Nice hotel, great location

We were in Chicago for a quick weekend, and the Monaco was a great choice. It's in a perfect location -- in the middle of everything -- but feels like a quiet oasis. A very comfortable hotel.
