Needs some love

Our bathroom light was out which made using it with others in the room pretty tricky and uncomfortable. As well there was a large 'white' stain on the couch in the room which mean it was never used for fear of what the 'white' stain could be from or what created it. In the morning the entire hall smelled like vomit and was pretty upsetting. The location of the hotel was great, but given the bathroom light and 'white' stain issues, it makes it hard to give our experience a great rating. I've stayed at many Kimpton hotels and have always had a great experience. But this was not one of those times.

Perfect one day birthday trip

Hotel Monaco was the perfect diversion getaway (from the kids;) From the eclectic wall and furniture art, to the funky smoothie blender bike in the lobby, to the helpful staff who encouraged us to borrow the hotel bikes to ride to breakfast. We were sorry to be limited to a one night stay...definitely will be back.

Great getaway at chic hotel made for a good business trip

I stayed at the Monaco Portland because the hotel hosting the legal conference that I was attending was sold out. I am so glad that I did! Like its Kimpton counterparts, the Monaco is a chic and fun hotel that pays attention to the small details. Everything from service to the really cool room design is impeccable. The hotel is conveniently located within downtown Portland, so you can walk to everything from shopping to the food carts. The hotel restaurant, the Red Star Tavern, is quite good. This was my first trip to Portland, and I'm looking forward to visiting again. I will definitely choose to stay at the Monaco again.
