I recently spent 4 nights at the Hotel Monaco in downtown Portland. The staff was excellent and the room was comfortable and well maintained. If you like hotels with Character, this hotel will interest you. The large lobby area has comfortable furniture and hosts a wine and cheap beer social in the evening. The rooms are well appointed and the...

A really convenient downtown location and spacious suites have made this Portland hotel a favorite of mine for both business and pleasure trips. I’ve been coming here for years, even before Kimpton purchased the property. Must say that Kimpton has made a good hotel a great one. They have assembled the most welcoming, competent staff that one is likely to...

We stayed for one night on our way to Palm Springs and were very impressed with Hotel Monaco. The staff were friendly and welcoming, from the valet parking our car to the smiling doorman. Upon check in ( Ben was also warm and welcoming) we were upgraded to a king suite. The suite itself was fab. Really creative interior design!...

The location is perfectly central for all of the dining and bar-hopping we ended up doing. We didn't have exact destinations planned when we arrived and between recommendations of staff and reviews from tripadvisor and yelp we filled our 3 day weekend full! Wine hour was a great way to get the evening started. We could walk almost everywhere we...

Stayed at the Hotel Monaco from January 22nd - 26th. Even before I arrived, the Hotel went out of their way to make sure that my stay was going to be a comfortable one. Arriving from sunny, warm Miami to chilly Portland, I was just a little bit cold. No problem. The Hotel Monaco provided hand warmers and some extra...

A friend and I drove to Portland from Vancouver Canada for a two night get away.

First I picked this hotel based on trip advisor's recommendation. Hiow could I go wrong. I didn't. Using the AAA card got me free parking, joining their free of charge rewards program got free wifi and $10.00. Off the mini-bar. We were also upgraded to a king suite on the top floor which was decorated by someone on drugs, but...
