This artsy downtown Portland outpost of the Kimpton-operated Monaco boutique-hotel brand offers eclectic textiles and patterns, bright spaces and bold colors, quirky amenities like complimentary companion goldfish for your room, and the overall sense that staying here is a lot of fun. In these roomy accommodations (the majority of them suites), birds in flight paper the ivory-colored guest-room walls, auburn hexagons carpet the floor, and multicolored tartan decorates the headboard. A staff dog serves as greeter on the weekends, and guest pets receive treat baskets, beds, and water bowls. Human guests receive a discount at Dosha Spa on the first floor, and there's a complimentary wine reception every evening in the lobby. Service is top-notch, delivering yoga mats and forgotten travel items on request.

We stayed here over Christmas, checking in Christmas Day. It was a lovely stay and close to shopping and the art museum. They are very welcoming to well-behaved dogs and there was a bed, a water bowl and even a new toy set up in our suite for our dog. That made it fun for all of us. The room was lovely and we really enjoyed the afternoon wine reception.

I visited Portland for a half marathon downtown and chose the Hotel Monaco for location but would visit again just for the wonderful service! Everyone was so great and the hotel is perfectly situated for downtown Portland which is a great downtown by the way. The room and amenites were lovely and the morning coffee was greatly appreciated. I did not have the opportunity to partake but they have a complimentary wine and cheese hour as well.
