Great Hotel But With A Few Issues

Would recommend Tue, Nov 3, 2015
The hotel was excellent the room was clean, the staff was friendly and polite and it was in an excellent location. However there were a few issues that I had with the hotel. The first was that the room had a musty odor to it, for a four-and-a-half star hotel this is unacceptable, however it should be noted that you do get used to the smell and it doesn't stick to you or your clothes. Second the ironing board and the iron did not work properly and the cloth on the ironing board was soaked in water and I was very disappointed by it considering the hotel's reputation and standards. Overall however it is an excellent hotel with great service!

So Close!

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
For amount of money I spent, the jacuzzi should have been working prior to us checking in......The maintenance guy had to come in to fix it right in the middle of the night! VERY intrusive. The pillows in the windows were MUSTY! For that price, that is totally UN-acceptable!! This was a special night and I'm sure that Trump Tower wouldn't anything musty and I'm sure everything would be in working order.

Beautiful Hotel, Great Location, Highly Recommend

Would recommend Tue, Jul 21, 2015
The Hotel Monaco is a fantastic hotel in a great location. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. The lobby is modern and functional with great decor and style. My king room was huge and very spacious with high ceilings and nice furniture. The hotel gym is good enough for cardio and some light weight lifting if desired. The restaurant attached, South Water Kitchen, is exceptional and the meals I had there were excellent. I love Kimpton Hotels and this one lives up the standards I've appreciated in other cities. I highly recommend booking this hotel for your business or personal stays. I will look forward to my next trip to Chicago and my stay at the Monaco again.

Great Place for Chicago Stay

Would recommend Mon, Dec 1, 2014
Wonderful location/stay. Staff was friendly, restaurant was nice, room was spacious and well appointed. There was some confusion with housekeeping which meant the room didn't get cleaned for two of our days, but that was probably due as much to our schedule as anything else. Highly recommend.

Quality Stay

Would recommend Sun, Nov 23, 2014
Great room decorated nicely. Staff was pleasant and remembered you everytime you entered the hotel. Location is closer to the loop than the main michigan ave shopping district, but some rooms have a river view because of that. Only problem I encountered was in the business center when my room/account was not recognized when trying to log into the computers.

Dining

Gejas Cafe is worh the drive to Lincoln Park, best dining experience aside from maybe Alinea.

The Kimptons are uniformally wonderful. Staff are real and engaging - When they say they'll be "up in one minute", it's the truth. The room was peacefully laid out with a super comfortable bed.

a pretty good experience

Would recommend Wed, Oct 15, 2014
We have stayed at Kimpton properties before and enjoy their quirky, boutique atmospheres. This one was not particularly interesting in terms of decore. It is in a convenient location on N. Wabash St., not far from museums of Grant Park and the Magnificent Mile on the other side of the river, but it is on a rather dark, almost-side street, without much to see. Now the good news is that this street is therefore relatively quiet. We were placed in a second floor room facing that street and were quite pleased at how quiet it was at night. The room was comfortable enough and the staff was very friendly. There is a tiny fitness center on the second floor. Breakfast and other meals are in the restaurant next door, which was quite expensive, but there are a lot of alternative choices within a block or so, including a 7-11 right across the street.
