I booked this hotel due to the proximity to a work conference I was attending. I stayed a few days to play, since I live on the east coast and had not experienced all that Oregon had to offer before. The staff were knowledgable about the area and gave great recommendations. The wine reception held each night allowed a single...

We had read all the great reviews about Hotel Monaco prior to our arrival and we had very high expectations. From check in to check out the Hotel Monaco employees hit all the marks which was a relief to us. Rather than repeat all the other reviewers comments all we can say is that it is all true. From the...

Stayed 3 days, and never remember having such wonderful and helpful staff. Joseph is amazing in his knowledge of the city and recommendations for things to do in the city. Matt at the door is professional and mature and makes you feel like he knows you personally. Garrett who retrieved our car on numerous occasions was extremely professional and courteous....

I stayed at the Monaco whilst travelling with my wife on our honeymoon. We stayed in some pretty special places on our travels : this was not one of them. Firstly, on a positive note, the hotel is very well placed in the heart of Downtown Portland : a vibrant part of the city. We were dealt with efficiently on...

Thanks so much for your review on Trip Advisor. I am very sorry that this was not a good visit. I apologize for the forced room move due to the inoperable air conditioning. That would have been a great time to upgrade you from a queen bedded room to a suite. Our hotel has 20% queen bedded rooms and 80%...

We stayed here with our 10 and 7 year old and got a hypo-allergenic room which was very big and spacious including a lounge areas (with couches) separate from the bedroom and bathroom.

The staff were all very nice, knowledgeable and efficient, except the car valet who never seemed to answer the phone when we needed our car bought up.

Although there are cheaper hotels in Portland, we found the Hotel Monaco to be worth a bit of a splurge. The location (within a short walk of a Trimet stop, a food cart pod, and dozens of restaurants) is extremely convenient. The staff was genuinely nice and very helpful, accommodating our requests for a late checkout and to have our...

We spent two days at the Portland Hotel Monaco. As other reviewers have noted it is an modern eclectic hotel, making it fun to find the "bird leg" lamp or the hidden ice bucket in the tv cabinet. We stayed in a large suite which afforded us plenty of room for family visitors. The hotel gives easy access to all...
