So I’m an old guy who is used to non-boutique hotel fare. Yet, you will likely find the décor of the Hotel Monaco a bit eclectic, interesting or sometimes, downright strange – but I liked it. The live instrumentals/vocals each evening were a great touch as is the complimentary beverages around happy hour time. The meeting facilities were adequate as...

Dear Jim B, From one old guy to another, thanks for staying with us! Glad you enjoyed yourself, even with our unique decor. We do try to be different! Also appreciate the feedback about the workability of our guest rooms. Since we enjoy much larger room sizes than your standard fare we're always happy to see what we can do...

We reserved a king suite which has a sitting area and a TV separate from the bedroom which has its own TV. The two areas can be separated with sliding doors so you have private areas depending on TV shows and sleeping habits. The downstairs lobby has happy hour from 5 to 6 and is a good place for us...

We have been fortunate to stay here many times and always look forward to returning. We have never been disappointed. Of course the best part is the very friendly staff members who provide excellent service. The hotel is stylish, particularly the lobby. Everything was very clean. Our room was large and comfortable. The music and wine hour in the lobby...

One of three Kimpton properties in Portland, we booked the Monaco based on a friend's recommendation. We were upgraded to a king mini-suite on arrival - thank you!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a few nights last week and we were truly disappointed. The hotel is extremely expensive and we are not sure we paid for. The room was fine, not how I should be describing a room that was so costly. The furniture was uncomfortable and the bathroom was exactly what you would...

Hello Tarastrad, Apologies we missed the mark, we're as disappointed as you are in your challenging stay. We work very hard to give a true sense of value in a stay at our hotel. Beyond the complimentary coffees, teas, bikes and digital library, we offer the best daily social hour in the entire city, bar none. But we're always focused...

Great hotel; nice room. Spent two nights here; was in Portland for the Gordon Sumner (also known as "Sting") concert. They upgraded me to a suite. Friendly staff. Appeared to have decent conference facilities. I generally am not the type to stay at "nice" or "fancy" hotels, but as I enter my mid-30s, am starting, albeit slowly, upgrading (in my...
