Amazing service that started at the car valet in the basement. Very professional and friendly. Front desk help was even better. We were a bit early for our check in...and without even asking they just upgraded us to a better room so we could check in. The decor is amazing. Fun yet classy. We ordered room service and it was...

Hotel Monaco was very nice, rooms were decorated very funky and the staff was always very pleasant and helpful. The wine hour was fantastic, they had fairly large selection of both beer and wine, there were always activities for the kids, and the live piano was lovely. The only drawback is the location. While it definitely gets high marks for...

My husband and I were delighted with our stay at this beautiful and charmingly decorated hotel (lobby and our room color combinations with nature influence were luxurious and uplifting; unlike other generically decorated hotels this one appears to have top designer influence). Staff (check in and doorman) were also genuinely friendly and helpful. Without hesitation I look forward to staying...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Monaco for three nights to celebrate a birthday. Having previously stayed at another Kimpton Hotel, we had high hopes - and the Hotel Monaco exceeded our expectations!

When we walked into our room (a King Suite), our daughter was stunned into silence. Finally she said, "none of this should go together but it does." The decor is outstanding. Rugs, chairs, walls, all are unique but nicely tied together. The big picture window, soft beds, and animal print robes gave our hotel room the feel of absolute luxury....
