We just stayed three nights in this fantastic hotel! We loved the friendliness of the staff, especially Matt who was the door man and our "personal travel guide". Each morning he greeted us with a big smile and patiently helped us plan our day. He went out of his way to share his favorite restaurants and sights with us. He...

Traveling with our teens and splurged for a week's stay here. Great location in the core of Portland's very walkable downtown and nearby Pearl District where we wandered day and night exploring wide variety of places offering commodious comestibles, freaky garb and purveyors of artisanal pretensions. Helpful staff abound. Happy hour daily which includes nice wines and local beers (!),...

A week earlier we had stayed in the Seattle Hotel Monaco (sister of the Portland Monaco) and were appalled by its hideous decor. The same decorator must have tried his or her skills creating a hodgepodge of mismatched colors, furniture and design in the public spaces and rooms. It was a shame to ruin an otherwise fine boutique hotel with...

Thanks so much for your recent review on Trip Advisor. I am in certain agreement that the Hotel Monaco Seattle and the Hotel Monaco in Portland are on the cutting edge in design. The hotels actually were done by different designers, but the point is that the Monaco Hotels which are part of the Kimpton Hotel and Restaurant company want...

This is by no means the least expensive hotel in Portland, but in terms of atmosphere and location it can't be beat. You are in easy walking distance of everything- five blocks from Powells Books, three from Pioneer Square, the same block as the Nike store and a number of cute boutiques. The attached restaurant is fabulous. There are free...

I meant to write this review immediately, but it's been over a month so I hope I remember everything! First of all, the hotel and room was quirky - in a good way. Noise from outside was minimal.

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco in July of 2013 with a couple of girlfriend/cousins. This place is decorated with hodgepodge. Like glue and newspaper. Nothing matches. I mean nothing. And I loved it. It was quirky and fantastic. That is part of its charm. And it is perfect for Portland. (Bathroom wallpaper was super interesting: it was a series...

The hotel was impeccable, with beautiful decor, but too be honest it was a little OTT for us, with wallpaper and prints and designer furniture everywhere! The atmosphere was perhaps a little on the cold side, not as welcoming as we had expected, a bit stuffy, and not especially friendly to children. We also found the extras like the mini...

This was our first experience at a Kimpton hotel. Overall, it was a great experience, in spite of a couple of oversights. We stayed here with our two children.
