What a great place to stay in Chicago! A first time visitor I could not have found a better place to stay and when I return the Hotel Monaco will be my first choice.. From the doorman, to registration, to directions around the city...everyone was amazing. The free happy hour was an additional unexpected bonus. My room was a river...

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.

Kimpton hotels are always great, but this hotel is excellent for service, price, and accommodations. So central in the Downtown Chicago Loop with a short walking distance to Millennium Park and the Art Institute. Room was exceptionally nice with best pillows ever experienced in a hotel.

Loving Kimpton hotels and this one did not disappoint our room was quiet and had decent amount of space. Everything works as expected. The staff were just terrific. All the services were on point. We love the wine hour which takes place daily in a beautiful space close to the lobby. The location is perfect. It's close enough to walk...

This place is amazing. Ron helped us out at the front desk and was so upbeat and helpful. All jokes! Very high ceilings in the room made for a great experience! A great gym and also a great restaurant all in house.

I had a great stay here. First off, the location is fantastic-- it's right along the Chicago river, so access to the Miracle Mile above, and the parks below is really, really easy and walkable. The orange line is about 1.5 blocks away, and it seemed that all other rail lines were within a comfortable walking distance. I stayed in...

I enjoy trying out new hotels, and it's a gamble, but I trust the Kimpton name. As soon as the bellman opened the door for me and I walked into the lobby, I fell in love. Classic meets modern, but with a retro twist. You almost don't know where the line is drawn because it all blends together so perfectly....

Excellent staff, great location- convenient to public transit, River North and the Loop. Wine reception. Window seats, animal print robes. What more will one say? Opt for a River view room if you can.

The boutique hotel was beautiful, I loved the decor from the lobby, to the hallway, to our river view room. My favorite was the window seat! Phylicia McLeod was very pleasant and provided us assistance each day of our stay from check-in, directions, to check-out. The doormen were so kind and helpful.
