This hotel is located walking distance from Michigan Avenue; so a great location. It's quite charming. The suites have a really neat window "seat" but they are actually full size beds that have a memory foam in them that make them extremely comfortable. My 21 year old son, 6'1" actually took a nap in the window several occasions because it...

KCGirl70- Those window seats are perfect aren't they? 21 year old sons, kids and adults alike all enjoy perching up with their favorite novel and watching the city come alive in the morning or become quiet at night. It's a favorite feature of our upgraded room types for our guests. Thanks for mentioning the the bathrooms- we are working on...

We hosted a 3-day workshop at Hotel Monaco and had a stellar experience throughout. Service was just wonderful from sales through to the catering staff on the floor with us.

First off i will say the hotel itself was very nice, clean and centrally located. Now for the bad. I booked my trip to the hotel monaco for a small group so we needed 2 rooms. Upon check in the hotel did not have 2 rooms available. The desk clerk promptly got the manager since she could only find one...

This was our second stay at Hotel Monaco and it didn't disappoint. The staff continues to excel in customer service. They always acknowledge their guests and are attentive to any needs.

This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
