Hotel Monaco Chicago Review

A renovated lobby featuring pops of color and texture (check out the high-gloss red alligator fabric on the registration desk), as well as redesigned meeting rooms named for international destinations such as Tokyo and Paris inspire wanderlust here; guest rooms reflect the hotel's global chic aesthetic, with steamer-trunk nightstands and Moroccan lamps. Other nice touches: each room's bay windows and the pet goldfish provided on request. Complimentary high-end coffee is available 6–9 am, and all guests are offered free wine each night from 5 to 6.

    Great weekend stay

    We got a two-queen corner room on Hotwire for Labor Day weekend, and very much enjoyed our stay. The room was large, with a chaise lounge and desk along with the two beds. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location is fantastic (about a two-minute walk to the el at State/Lake, and walking distance to anything in the Loop, Millennium Park and the Art Institute, as well as River North and the Magnificent Mile). The daily wine hour doesn't hurt either!

    Hotel Monaco Review

    The Monaco was wonderful and met all of our needs! Great location, friendly staff that goes above and beyond, cool and funky decoration, cleanliness, and more! We loved our stay there and would definitely recommend it to others. The best part: the river view from the window seats in the room!

    Monaco Chicago has great location, fun style and nice service, poor soundproofing

    Selected this Kimpton hotel b/c of it's central loop location and Kimpton special rate under $100/night.

    Entered the hotel and received a friendly and smiling welcome. Received a free spring gift - a plush goldfish. Able to get early check-in about 30 minutes before standard 3p check-in.

    The 9th floor room was away from elevator and had foam pillows (both as requested). The room was spotless and the warm color palette was inviting. I absolutely loved the padded window seats and cozied up there both nights of my stay - with the bolster pillow, the beautiful and soft throw, a book, and my camera.

    I had wished the room had an in-room coffee maker. Although the hotel provided a free coffee and tea service from 6a-9a, I didn't want to have to get dressed just to get a cup of coffee from the lobby.

    The walls and door to the room may as well have been made of cardboard, as hallway voices were as clear as if the door was open. And I awoke at 230a the first night and early the second morning to folks in an adjacent room gettin' busy... loudly. Folks can do whatever they wish in their rooms, I just don't want to hear them clearly. Turning on the tv and radio helped to mask their sounds...

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
