Hotel Monaco Review

Thanks to a massive $5.2-million renovation completed in 2012, the once slightly dated 189-room hotel has sprung back to life with a modern-meets-global look. Designed by Andrea Dawson (of the Drake Hotel in San Francisco and the Alexis Hotel in Seattle), the lobby is outfitted with mid-century-inspired sofas, Regency-style table lamps, artwork by local Seattle artists, and a mosaic-tiled fireplace. Rooms are done in a palette of soft reds and gunmetal grays, with beds topped with Frette linens, floor-to-ceiling drapes have a Turkish motif, and floor lamps recall telescopes. The hotel hasn't lost any of its Kimpton character in the process, though: there are still goldfish offered at check-in for homesick nights, a nightly wine reception for meeting other guests, and complimentary bike use.
