I booked the Hotel Monaco because I like staying in the Kimpton hotels...mainly the Palomar in Dallas. However, I would say that I wish I had stayed somewhere else. After spending a long day out and visiting with family, we came back to a dirty room. We had an in-town guest join us and they came up to our room...
