Great Hotel

I love it when a hotel actually lives up to the pictures and descriptions on their website. This is a really nice, little hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. The Hotel Monaco was probably the highlight of our trip. Everyone from the valets, to the desk staff, to the room service staff were lovely and really seemed to enjoy their jobs (other than one person who answered the front desk phone, when I called to ask for an additional towel. She said she would "be happy to do that," but, her tone said otherwise. I want to end on a positive note, however, and say that we would definitely stay at Hotel Monaco, again, if we are ever back in Seattle. P.S. The food from room service was delicious, and arrived piping hot.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Thanks to one of the Valets (sorry, I don't remember his name,) we enjoyed a REALLY good sushi lunch at Nijo. It is worth the walk up and down those crazy Seattle hills.

Nice, but not that nice.

Service was good. Tub however didn't drain well. Breakfast was a tad high on price for what you received.

Nicest hotel I've stayed at

The monaco was beautiful, huge king size bed, robes, valet, bell hops and a complimentary wine hour. Walking distance to pike place market and capital grill steakhouse down the street has a great steak. Just don't go to Sullivan's as the service is terrible, manager is clueless and the steak was brutal. Anyway, the Monaco was top notch and i'll definitely be back.

GREAT LOCATION/HELPFUL STAFF

We were given an upgrade when we arrived which meant 2 queen beds & a more spacious room. Lovely!! The room was ready early so we dropped our bags & were off to see the city. The desk personnel were helpful with info & securing a taxi when we needed it. The lobby was comfortable & there was no problem "hanging out" after check out. I would definitely recommend this hotel & I would stay there again. A perfect walk from the King St. Train station.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Seattle's core is a short walk on 4th St. Easy to access monorail, streetcar to South Lake Union, busses, Belltown, Pike St. Market & Seattle Art Museum.

amenities lacking, staff mediocre

It's a beautiful hotel in downtown - great location to site-seeing. Some staff were great and helpful - others not so much. Great that they have coffee in the morning and drink hour at night. Why couldn't you have coffee available ALL DAY? One morning they ran out of coffee by 9am. It's Seattle, coffee capital of the world. Also, 4 star hotel but you charge me $5 for every 15 mins of computer use in your business center? lame.

Home away from home

The Monaco staff make you feel like an honored guest. The concierge is fantastic, outstanding location and dozens of "special touches" like morning coffee and afternoon wine!
