Chicago was our first stop on our American holiday and we couldn't have stayed in a better hotel. We arrived quite tired after a long flight. The doorman and reception desk were friendly and helpful. The room wasn't particularly large but was well planned with sufficient storage, amenities, USB plugs and most importantly a good sized bathroom. The location is central which means you can walk to many of the sights, take the L further afield or short taxi rides which weren't expensive. Walking distance to Andy's Jazz Café and around the corner from the Witt - hotel with a lounge on the 23rd floor - not the highest view point in Chicago - but a pleasant place to have a drink. The restaurant at the hotel had decent food and good choice of seafood and getting breakfast was easy. They complimentary wine and nibbles between 5 and 6 each day which is nice after a days sightseeing before heading out again. Service throughout was always with a smile. Would definitely stay there again when next in Chicago. Read less

My husband and I booked this hotel for a last minute weekend trip to Chicago. We knew relatively little about the hotel when we booked it but we liked the location and price. We were blown away by our experience! The staff were so incredibly polite and accommodating and the rooms were just beautiful. We had a lot of things planned in the short time we were there and it was so relaxing to come back to our room at the end of each night to unwind. I especially appreciated the pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash - there was more than enough to take care of my thick hair for the weekend! We would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to the city. Read less

Accompanied my wife who was on a business trip to Chicago. We have stayed here before and always is a pleasure. Their complimentary wine hour is a bit hit with the guests. The person pouring the wine is always generous with his pours. Some light finger foods are also served.

Spent three nights at the Kimpton Monaco over Labor Day weekend. From check in to check out, service was superb. Antonio and the other members of the valet team were consistent, friendly, and considerate. Interactions with the front desk team were also very pleasant and they were able to help with every request I had. The servers and bartender at the hotel restaurant, Fisk and Co., had the same warm and service oriented attitude. Absolutely loved the riverview room I had. From the furnishings to the bathroom, it was thoughtfully furnished and a delight to come back to every day after a long day out. The Frette bathrobe and bedding also hit the spot; the Frette linens are one of the details that I love about the Kimpton brand. The location can't be beat if you want to be in the center of it all in Chicago. It's situated a quick walk to the subway, walking distance to major attractions like the Bean, Mag Mile, the Riverfront. The beautiful and comfortable room coupled with the fantastic service across the board made for a lovely stay. I'd happily stay here on my next visit. Read less

Another great stay at the Monaco last week. This hotel, and Kimpton in general, are always well worthwhile! I'd like to try the Grey or Palomar, but usually stay here because of the location. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, decor that is NOT cookie cutter, fun social hour with wine in the late afternoon. Will return!
