We just spent a long weekend (Friday - Tuesday) in this fantastic hotel. I made a note in our online reservation indicating that our kids were looking forward to another stay at the Hotel Monaco...and here's a tip, Kimpton definitely reads and responds to those reservation notes! When we arrived in our room, we were all delighted to arrive to...

I stayed at the Monaco for three nights while in Portland for a business meeting and I couldn't have been happier! My King Suite room was both functional and elegant. The bedroom was separated from the large sitting room by a set of huge sliding doors making it quite comfortable to have a small group in the room while keeping...

My wife and I spent a Saturday night at the Hotel Monaco on a checkout-Portland-outing. We very much enjoyed our stay. The entire staff from the doorman to the parking attendants to the desk clerks were all outstanding. Our Queen bed room was well acquainted and tastefully decorated. The windows do not open, but that proved to be a blessing....

I'm not the kind of person that writes reviews, but this was BY FAR the best hotel experience we've had as a family (Mom, dad and 4 kiddos) .Last year we went to Disneyland, and we stayed at the (overpriced) Disneyland hotel (Yes, we want to live the Disney experience at its best). Ok, now my kids prefer to go...

This may have been the best or at least in the top few hotel experiences we've had. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, right in the middle of downtown, so we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. The attached restaurant was quality and just wonderful....

My family and Boston Terrier stayed at Hotel Monaco for our final days in Portland. We lived in Portland for 11 years so this was a wonderful way to end our experience.

Hands down, this is one of the best hotels in Portland. The hotel presents itself with a chic vibe, but retains a level of service that is warm and inviting. You can literally feel romance when you walk into the lobby. Each of the rooms are uniquely decorated, so even after multiple stays, I've still not been in a room...

The hotel has really wonderful whimsical decor and ambience -- the lobby has a beautiful grand piano, red walls, an alabaster white fireplace...my room had a lamp with duck feet as a stand!

I loved the pictures online but the actual hotel is even more beautiful. I felt like I was staying in a Jonathan Adler store - which is very much my style. The service was wonderful and especially great since I was sick and they made me feel at home. I would most definitely return again when I come to Portland....
