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!
