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.

We felt so welcomed walking through the doors by Scott and he provided a top notch customer experience for us. Not only was the room he selected just what we were looking for but he also had a great recommendation for dinner that hit the spot! And we cannot forget about Alisha who was very pleasant at checkout time! Because of their amazing hospitality we will definitely return! Read less

The hotel location and rooms are extravagent to say the least but it was lacking in the responsive department. Not all our needs were attended to and the front desk attendant was a little rude. The manager made up for it by apologizing for that and upgraded us to a rooftop suite room free of charge :))

Just moved to Portland and stayed for 9 days before escrow closed. Terrific room (upgraded to the Grand Suite), and excellent service. Marianne and her front office staff were very hospitable and professional. Will stay again when the opportunity permits

I stayed at the Monaco with several girlfriends for a 40th birthday trip, and the hotel was absolutely perfect. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and instantly made me feel at home. The lobby was so cozy and inviting, and we loved sitting by the fire after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms were extremely quiet, which, as a light sleeper I really appreciated. Our favorite thing about the hotel was the welcome sign for pets -- what a fun touch! Read less
