I have to say that I was a little worried about staying here because it is pet friendly and I am allergic to dogs and cats. From the moment I walked in I felt completely comfortable and was put on a pet free floor which worked great for me. I did see a few dogs but not long enough to...

Dear diasmiles4u, I'm allergic to dogs too, so I'm very sympathetic about your plight. But even with all the time I spend in the building, our wonderful Housekeeper team does such a great job that you'd not even notice how pet friendly we are. Good feedback as well about your check-in experience; it's not a normal thing we'd mention at...

First time in Portland- so glad I chose to stay here. This hotel is wonderful; the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and I'm slightly obsessed with the room decor. It's been a great, homey intro to Portland and I can't wait to come back. I had dinner at the restaurant (definitely not a "pub" as on may assume based...

Dear Christine C, Then you need to come back! Glad you enjoyed yourself and very happy you had the opportunity to dine in Red Star. Our culinary team are some extraordinarily talented individuals and we're lucky to have them. Get back soon and say hello to Chef Stacy, Chef Dolan and the entire crew.

The service was absolutely amazing from start to finish. I was supposed to celebrate my anniversary with my husband, but due to work commitments he was unable to come. So my sister in law filled in for him and the Kimpton family made us fill at home. They genuinely demonstrated true hospitality!! Definitely returning back. The decor of the rooms...

We stayed at this hotel via Pack Up + Go (a company that plans surprise getaways; we did not know where we were staying until that morning). I was impressed. I can't say I would have ever selected a Kimpton (I'm a Marriott person) but this trip is going to make me think twice. First, upon arrival, the front desk...

This property is fun and eclectic. The staff are top notch and the rooms are first class. Centrally located downtown, everything is within walking distance or an Uber away. The complimentary happy hour is a nice perk. I would definitely stay here again.

I am a huge Kimpton fan and know that no matter where we visit, if we choose a Kimpton property, we will get a certain level of high-quality service, a unique boutique property, and have a great experience. Unfortunately, this was the first time our trip fell short at a Kimpton. We booked our trip as a last minute visit....

That essentially sums it up. The suite was nice and spacious, and nicely appointed. On the other hand, the Red Star Tavern (the hotel restaurant) was lacking both in tasty food and in service. The hotel was great, though be prepared to pay. Parking is $42 per day and a morning pot of coffee brought up to the room is...

I am giving this Monaco the highest rating in spite of a housekeeping gaffe. With all the technology available, hotel housekeeping is surprisingly disorganized and befuddled. I have noticed a proliferation of housekeeping glitches, at hotels around the world, rivaling the worst of technology. I now always make sure to let front desk personnel know I am leaving my room...
