Nice, boutiquey hotel

We had a very pleasant stay. The staff was attentive, and the hotel was modern and comfortable. And the location, right downtown, was great.

Quality Stay

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.

a pretty good experience

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.

One night stay

We checked in to this hotel after sailing across Lake Michigan. We were upgraded from a king bed room to a small suite. Everything was great, the value (for us) was great and it was easy to find. The free coffee was a bonus. Everyone was really nice, the place was very clean. Totally worth the $195.

If you're dining within 6 blocks or so and it's during rush hour, walk, cab will take forever navigating traffic and the crowds.

Very Pet Friendly

This is a great downtown hotel for people traveling with pets. The staff were really accommodating with our dog. We were able to take our dog in and out for walks without problem. We were able to leave our dog in the room when crated. They even provided dog bed and water and food bowls.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk your dog at the Riverwalk north of Wabash & Wacker. You can get there by walking north on Wabash until you see the stairs before crossing the river. Head East towards the lake. There are grass areas by the river.

Great Location, Room and Staff

This hotel was a great experience. The location is great being near the loop, river, and mag mile. There is always someone on staff to hail a cab, they have free wine from 5-6 each day, and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Monaco Hotel

We had a business function downtown and needed to stay the night. I looked at the Monaco Hotel online and it looked very interesting. We arrived at the hotel a bit later than we had anticipated and the wine hour had just ended but the people at the front desk offered to get us a glass to take up to our room. That was very nice but the room was really nice. Decorated beautifully and the layout was also very comfortable. Sometimes, rooms in hotels in down town Chicago have to conform to meet the way the building is laid out. That doesn't always make the room accessible as far as the bathroom to sleeping area is concerned. It appeared the hotel designers took that into consideration by adding a large mirror to one wall so that women can apply makeup and the man can shower without stumbling over each other battling for the restroom. Overall, I was quite please with the hotel experience at the Monaco. The staff were exceptionally accommodating and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who has business in the North Loop area as it is easily accessible as a midpoint between the theater district, Museums, Millennium Park to the South & East and the shopping district, Navy Pier to the North and East. set very close to the Chicago River which is charming anytime of year.
