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.

My friends and I planned a dinner and show in the city. We chose to stay at hotel Monaco. We could not have been more pleased. When we arrived they had a complementary wine hour in the lobby. While enjoying some wine, I noticed the hotel offered a bicycle if needed and dog bowls for your pet to grab a drink. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. We were able to stay in a beautiful room with a view of the river. We were a few blocks away from the theater with great restaurants near by for dinner. After the show we headed back to the hotel for a drink at the hotel bar. The bar tenderer was very personable and great to talk with. We had a great night. The Monaco staff and ambience makes this hotel a place I would love to visit again soon! Read less

This hotel enjoys a great location and it is nearby the Magnificent Mile and the Millennium Park. The reception staff is great and super helpful! They made me feel welcome and assisted me with my hotel needs. I would definitely recommend this quaint and classy hotel. I just hope they get me into higher floor next time around!
