Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland

Portland, Oregon

The hotel

Proudly promising all of Portland’s biggest attractions, bikes, brews, and books, Kimpton Hotel Monaco’s downtown spot makes experiencing them easy. Complimentary bikes are just the beginning; there’s a free 24-hour gym, complimentary hot drinks in the lounge each morning, and wine hour in the cosy lobby each night, often featuring piano or jazz swing bands or showcasing local chocolatiers or wineries. High ceilings and picture windows are reminders of its department store heritage, while touches like bird-sprinkled wallpaper adds a whimsical twist. The happy hour’s equally playful; so good it actually lasts three hours, it features small plates, microbrews, and cocktails. And, after you stroll back from Pioneer Square, the waterfront, or the block-long Powell’s bookstore, the hotel’s Red Star Tavern’s ready with innovative American dishes.

Wow!!! Kimpton hotels never disappoint, but this one is really special. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the elegant but funky decor is on point throughout the hotel. The staff is friendly, fun and accommodating. Our stay was definitely a 5-star experience.

The staff was incredible! The room was very funky but cool. Amazing bath products in the bathrooms and the on site restaurant was great! Even though they had a doorman that opens the door every time you walk in, it does not come across as stuffy-upscale. It feels very "chill"

The staff was super courteous and welcome. I am a fan of the Kimpton's social hours and general vibe and it worked really well in Portland. Would happily come back for another business trip or for fun.

Kimpton hotels are a recent find of mine and they quickly became my favorite. I like their policies. I like the spirit they embody. I like the decor. I like their quirkiness. There's a lot to love about them. Hotel Monaco has a lot of that, too. But I just didn't love my experience there. Things started out alright. I checked in later in the evening (about 10pm) so the there wasn't any buzz. But the front desk staff were friendly, fun, and helpful. Things were off to a good start. The rooms are funky and comfortable. I enjoyed what they had to offer, though there was a bit of street noise. But...things were just uncannily off. From staff not knowing things about the hotel property to issues with housekeeping, the hotel just didn't wow. Was my stay ruined? No. Would I give it a second chance? Probably. Things were fine and I enjoyed my stay but it just wasn't up to snuff. Read less

I book a lot of training events at this hotel and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is very easy to get to. It's also a dog friendly hotel. I'm a dog person myself so I totally didn't mind. But if you're not into dogs (which I don't understand) or are allergic.. might not be the best place for you.
