Wonderful location. We were able to catch the Blue Line train nearby right into O'Hare. The hotel is very clean and quiet. I enjoyed the complimentary morning coffee and evening wine tasting. The staff was great. When I returned home, I realized that I had left an item of clothing in the room. To my surprise, when I called about...

Teach7477, Isn't our location so great- it makes getting anywhere so easy, from the airports to the shopping to awesome Chicago restaurants. It's wonderful to hear that housekeeping was able to take care of your left behind items. We look forward to your next visit. Cheers, Marco Scherer General Manager

This was the perfect hotel for our girls' weekend in Chicago! The staff was friendly and helpful. Ryan, the concierge, went above and beyond with suggestions for restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing, as well as reservations when necessary. Our rooms were spotless, and we enjoyed a view of the Chicago River. We appreciated the evening wine hour as a time to...

Fabulous location, hip and friendly staff, mangers wine hour every night, good breakfast restaurant, goldfish in room...what more could you want. minutes from miracle mile and river north; steps from the red line. Restaurants, shows, blues- all in walking distance. Great weekend rates.Rooms are Euro-small but very romantic with nice meditation nooks in window. Suites are the bomb.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Monaco while on a business trip. The experience was pretty much what I expected it to be. The room was very nice, the bed was very comfortable, the staff was attentive.

My other half wanted to save money on our Chicago trip, but I love Kimpton Hotels and the Monaco in Seattle is great. We splurged and are so glad we did!

A high school BFF and I stayed here one night over Memorial Day weekend, & we had such a glorious, memorable time. It was perfect, and the Monaco was a main reason for such an enjoyable stay in the city!

Monacos offer funky yet functional design and good service at a reasonable price and this hotel was no exception. It is in an excellent location to Magnificent Mile and the Loop and was extremely quiet for such a busy area.

Staying at a Monaco hotel generally means you will be treated well. You can lower your defenses because there is no need to have them up. The staff at this particular Monaco needs a lot of remedial training. I did complain and the complaint was taken seriously and I do believe they will improve. The kitchen cannot even be counted...

I liked that this hotel took dogs without charging anything. Apparently all of the Kimpton's do this. I had a decent price from a Sinque Away.

We got a great rate over the recent Memorial weekend. Opted to book this hotel due to the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed.
