Wow! Just Wow! What a view, what a place!

My wife and son and I stayed at the Kimpton Monaco for four nights in a small suite overlooking the river. What an incredible view! The rooms are the usual funky Kimpton gorgeous with outstanding service. We usually buy our own drinks at a local store in order not to spend a fortune on vending or the wet bar. Our maid noticed and after our second night left a bottle of our favorite soda and note thanking us for staying! The staff is very friendly and helpful and the beds are ""oh, so comfortable."" Our son loved the river views and actually ended up sleeping in one of the large window boxes overlooking the city. The hotel is just across the street from the river and one block from the El loop and the red train station. The Chicago theater is just a block away too! It is just the perfect place to stay in this magnificent city!

Architecture writers have described this location as Chicago's finest corner...with views of the River, the Wrigley Building, Marina City, the River skyline and on and on. The window seats are incredible for watching, napping or sleeping overnight. Be aware that people who work in the office building across Wabash Avenue (about 70 feet away) can and do observe the goings-on in the rooms -- and that some hotel guests do oblige them with ... let's just say ... ""shows.""

Great boutique hotel.

Hotel Monaco is a great place to stay in Chicago. Great location 1 block from Michigan Ave right off Wacker and a short walk to tons of restaurants, bars and sights. Rooms decorated is a bright and exciting color scheme making it different from your usual hotel.

Romantic Weekend

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Hotel Monaco. The service was execellent and on time for room service meals. The view of the Chicago River from the corner suite was great, especially when they turned in green for St. Patrick's Day.

Good Hotel Service needs Improvement

My girlfriends and me stayed in the Mediterranean suite for our 4th anniversary. The good things were: The hotel location and the room decor were perfect. Windows were you can sit and enjoy the city. The bed is excellent and the jacuzzai is huge. The negatives were: Our room was on the 3rd floor with offices across the street, so anyone looking out there window can see directly into your hotel room. By that I mean they can see your bed in the room and into your bathroom if you leave the door or curtains open. I asked for the much heard about goldfish that never arrived. As we were checking out I noticed the bellboy load our bags into someone elses car. Fortunately I was able to catch the mistake and let him know in time. He offered me no apology and said, ""Arent you with the Grace party?""

I have stayed in hotels all over the world, and this is probably the worst service that I've ever experienced. The staff was unaccomodating and the hotel did not provide the services that it claimed it would. I decided to try the Monaco because it seemed interesting, was close to the theater, and had what seemed to be a good rate. What a huge mistake. The front desk staff was condescending and not even remotely helpful. The room was NOT clean, the gold fish we had requested came HOURS after we told them we would be arriving, they never bothered to come turn down the beds, and the late check-out ""priviledges"" which were GUARENTEED when I booked the room suddenly became ""upon request"" - boy the extra 30 minutes they gave me sure were helpful. Dont' waste your time or your money here. At best, it's nothing special.

I flew into Chicago with my girl friend for valentines day 2003, and Hotel Monaco was recomended to me, so I tried it out. I asked for a high room with a river view, I got a solid brick walled building 40' away, terrible. This hotel was average, not bad, just average.

Star treatment for everyone!

My friend and I stayed at the Monaco during a weekend shopping trip last spring. The charming rooms and wonderful location convinced us to return for another weekend this summer. Although there were a few snotty staff members, most of them were kind and treated us like celebrities. We even had ""room service"" sent to the lobby at 2 am. Warning: the beds are so comfortable that you may not want to get out of them...EVER! This is an A+ hotel.

Romance in the heart of Chicago

Without a doubt, one of the finest hotels for incurable romantics is the Hotel Monaco. The Lobby is exquisitely decorated in opulence and style. There is a cozy living room fireplace in the Lounge area that features wine tasting daily from 5-6pm. The rooms are just incredible. My room had a soft pad that you could use as a window seat. This place is absolutely fantastic and I would recommend this place to everyone.
