This was our second time staying at Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Chicago and it has yet to disappoint! The staff is always so professional and friendly. Although we didn’t travel with a pet, I was very impressed with how dog-friendly they were. They even had a water and treat bowl out in the lobby for all of their four-legged guests.

This was our second time staying at Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Chicago and it has yet to disappoint! The staff is always so professional and friendly. Although we didn’t travel with a pet, I was very impressed with how dog-friendly they were. They even had a water and treat bowl out in the lobby for all of their four-legged guests. We stayed in a king deluxe room with the river view (totally worth the extra money). My FAVORITE part about this hotel is the little nook you get in your window in your room. Since we had a river view room, I was able to lounge in that nook and just watch the city (great way to end the night). Other than our awesome nook, the room was clean and very modern. I also utilized their fitness center, which has weights, ellipticals, treadmills, and a PELOTON! So many options for any workout style (except maybe power lifting). The only recommendation I have for those that truly care about the view they have from their room, is to book directly on Kimpton’s website. The first time we stayed, I booked a room on a travel site and even paid a little extra to have a view. Only to come to find out our room was facing a brick wall and the hotel wasn’t even able to see I requested a view. They ended up switching our room to one with a much better view, but they recommended booking directly on their site and specifically requesting a view. I did that this time and we had a fantastic view! Read less

We came for my daughters 21st birthday and received an upgrade with a great view and window seat. Nothing beats the window seat! This is the only hotel we will be staying at from now on!!!!! Great location to everything! Thank you! Read less

Were in Chicago for three days. The location is in the theater district and within walking distance of the Art Institute can't be beat. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and steered us to some excellent places to eat and to enjoy live music and drinks.

Location in the Loop was excellent--close by just about everything, including the train lines. I'll definitely be back to stay here again. Read less
