Very convenient location to the trains, River Walk, and lots more. Our room was spacious and quiet. The bathroom was large but lacked sufficient shelf space for personal items. The front desk staff were very pleasant. We had breakfast at the restaurant and it was great. My only complaint was about the wifi. After signing up for the rewards program...

This is the fourth time I've stayed at this hotel since 2010 and have to say that it is one of my favorites. My friend and I came to town for four nights for the purpose of concert going, such as the Chicago Symphony. What I like about the place is the warm, cozy decor. Please don't mess with this!...

Based on visit late October, apologies for tardy posting, m working through a backlog. Great location, interesting Art Deco décor, great service, reasonable price for location and quality, Strong recommendation. Rooms are comfortable, and well appointed. Not overly large but that's not uncommon in older US cities. One point to note is that not all the river view rooms have...

Frictionless checkin, nice room and very centrally located. Rooms were quiet, not huge but comfortable. Across from a 7-11 so if you need anything it's easy to get. Gym is OK, not huge but was OK for a short stay.

First time staying at the Kimpton, great service from the staff and very impressed with the attention to details such as umbrella, yoga mat in the room. The hotel provides free drink daily at 5pm, although we weren't able to partake. Liked the fact that there were full size shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the shower, much more environmentally...

When planning a wedding downtown Chicago, 4 rooms were needed for the out of town wedding guests, and the bride. It was managed beautifully by the Hotel Monaco. The rooms were clean, stylish and well stocked with towels, robes, iron, ironing board and safe as well as an incredibly well stocked mini bar. The beds were comfortable too! The window...

I just stayed at the Hotel Monaco for 2+ weeks, and I couldn't be happier with my stay (the only thing that made me unhappy was having to check out). I chose the Hotel Monaco because I needed a place to stay with my dog (no breed restrictions, hooray!), and it ended up being just perfect for us. Mabel the...

Really like this hotel. Not the best kept Kimpton hotel we stayed at, but a good option in Chicago and good rates. Decor kitschy, as usual for the chain, but the rooms could have been in slightly better condition.

Hi robotmuppet, Thanks for the review but we can't help but want to be THE BEST hotel you've stayed at. We have just updated our suite bathrooms which turned out amazing and our next goal is to work on the remainder of the property hopefully in the not too distant future.

One of our favorite hotels in Chicago! Friendly stuff, dogs friendly, nice decoration, clean, perfect location, comfortable king bed, we've been to Chicago many of times before, this was our first stay in Monaco but definitely not the last one.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
