The hotel is centrally located making it easy to walk around, catch "Hop on-Hop off" bus and the boat tour. Also close easy walk along the river trail. I would recommend this hotel for cleanness, service and location. Read less

I only stayed at the Monaco for a night, but would definitely stay here again. The king room I stayed in, which I think is one of their base rooms, was gorgeous, modern, and clean.

I only stayed at the Monaco for a night, but would definitely stay here again. The king room I stayed in, which I think is one of their base rooms, was gorgeous, modern, and clean. The furnishings were some of the most beautiful I have seen in a hotel. It was a decent size room, but the window was super small. Not sure if all the base rooms are like that, but it wasn’t a deal breaker for us, especially for one night. Also, try and get a higher floor. We were on 4, and could hear a lot going on down on the street below. This place is walkable to everything, would definitely stay here again. Read less

We used credit card points to book this hotel over Labor Day weekend and chose a Suite style 2 room layout. Wow, were we pleased. The room was on a corner, with awesome views of the Chicago river and city hustle and bustle.

We used credit card points to book this hotel over Labor Day weekend and chose a Suite style 2 room layout. Wow, were we pleased. The room was on a corner, with awesome views of the Chicago river and city hustle and bustle. The rooms window ledges were so wide and long that my 6' 4" son and 5' 9" daughter both napped or just stretched out to read during day and evening time in the room. Dad got pats on back from kids and wife that I reserved the "best room ever." That never happens, cause I tend to go more budget.....but splurging on this room was worth it. I also enjoyed the free cruiser bike rental and rode miles up and down the lakeshore drive bike paths. Fun! Read less
