Free wine when we walked in to check in! Loved that. Happy hour wine and treats. Cool deco in lobby and rooms. Very comfortable beds and great service. Expensive valet/parking. Location is great, close to the river.

Within walking distance of the Goodman and Chicago Theatre's among others, and depending on the weather a walk or an easy Uber/Lyft/cab trip to Chicago Shakespeare Theatre/Navy Pier, the Auditorium Theatre, the Art Institute, the Magnificent Mile, The Chicago Symphony, etc. We live near Chicago...

What a wonderful discovery! The Hotel Monaco has a friendly, professional staff; clean, comfortable, inviting rooms; and absolutely terrific location.
