My wife and I, along with our two kids came to stay at the Hotel Monaco in downtown Chicago recently. The hotel is perfectly situation along the Chicago River, an easy walk to the Navy Pier, and so many other downtown attractions. The room was spectacular with the little sitting windows. Our kids would wake up each morning and hang out in those nooks! The customer service, from the people at the front desk, to the General Manager Adam Gurgiolo were superior. We could not have asked for nicer people to interact with at this hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Chicago if they are looking for outstanding customer service, a luxury property and views to die for!! Read less

Booked 3 nights, because I needed a break from my work. We weren’t sure what to expect due to the pandemic. We were greeted by Gretchen, who couldn’t have been any nicer.

Booked 3 nights, because I needed a break from my work. We weren’t sure what to expect due to the pandemic. We were greeted by Gretchen, who couldn’t have been any nicer. Maybe the nicest person on planet earth. She gave us a run down of the hotel and what to expect in the city. Our room was very very clean! As a hotel Rooms Director, trust me I can find things that’s wrong in a hotel room. The place was beyond spotless!!! Back to Gretchen, while my husband park the car down the street we chatted and she greeted/acknowledge every guests that come and go through the front door. Fast forward to the next few days. We would come and go 5 times a day through the lobby and majority of times we said hello first and when we didn’t we got no acknowledgement. It is true, your employees can really make or break a place. We are thankful our first impression of this Kimpton started with Gretchen! She’s a true gem. Keep her forever and pay her more. She deserves it! Fisk & Co. was just open for breakfast and the two staff during breakfast was amazing as well. They gave us great restaurant recommendations for our drive back to Columbus. Read less

Alexandra was a queen: check in top notch. She was understanding of my personal struggles upon check in. She gave me the top floor, complimentary toiletry gifts, and the comfort and hospitality was top notch. This hotel should be 5 stars just for her service. I will certainly return in the near future. Thank you all for making this a memorable… Read more

I was a little nervous about traveling during the pandemic, but Gretchen Mitz made it all worthwhile. Not only was she warm, friendly, and welcoming..but had answers to ever question asked. PLEASE......make sure she is rewarded in some form. She truly goes above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you Gretchen for making my stay....MEMORABLE.
