I stayed two nights at this property with my boyfriend as part of a road trip from northern California to Seattle at the beginning of July, 2013. We used this unique hotel as a base for exploring Portland and for a day of sightseeing and hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, to Mount Hood and back. The hotel is EXCELLENT,...

When we walked into our room (a King Suite), our daughter was stunned into silence. Finally she said, "none of this should go together but it does." The decor is outstanding. Rugs, chairs, walls, all are unique but nicely tied together. The big picture window, soft beds, and animal print robes gave our hotel room the feel of absolute luxury....

Thank you for staying at Hotel Monaco Portland and for writing such a lovely review. I know the teen stamp of approval can be hard to come by, but I think she hit the nail on the head with her comment. I had my doubts when we saw some of the design boards myself, but it sure came out beautiful....

I stayed here a year ago and gave it an enthusiastic review. I finally was able to return and am happy to say that it's as good as ever. Some hotels just get it, and this one does. The location is good, right by the Pearl district and Pioneer square, and public transportation is steps away if you need it....

My wife and I stayed at the Monaco for our wedding night and had an excellent experience. The check-in was quick, service was very friendly, and the room was great. The overall style of the hotel was different from anything else we stayed in before, which was part of the allure of the Monaco. Everything about the experience was as...

The Monaco is amongst the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Demure by nature, it has the little 'somethings' that are special. Companion goldfish, free Happy Hour with local wine and beer and afternoon snacks, the common living room area, and other services not seen elsewhere really make this property stand out. The entire staff - from the doorman...

I stayed at the Monaco Kimpton on my own for 3 nights to explore Portland. The building is very funky and the room was great - bird wallpaper! (very Portlandia....).

Stayed here with a girlfriend on a girls vacation. It was the perfect location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was great and the beds were very comfortable. The valet parking was easy and convenient. So much to do within walking distance of this location.

We are very satisfied repeat guests of the Monaco. We strayed once, but came back to the fold on our last trip to Portland. The staff is excellent: friendly, empowered, knowledgeable without being cloying or creepily attentive. The rooms are always in top condition, quiet and supremely comfortable. The location is excellent for exploring Portland by foot, trolley or car....
