Hotel Monaco is a very nice hotel, in a great part of Portland. Within walking distance to most of the interesting sites.

We spent a weekend in a seventh-floor King Corner room, and for the most part we loved it. Positives: Location is excellent: easy to reach from the highway, close to downtown attractions, a few blocks from a huge food cart pod, and a few more from the Pearl District. Design is fun and fabulous, a bright, bold mix of patterns...

The Hotel Monaco has become my go-to hotel in Portland. As a Kimpton Inner Circle member, I've been upgraded to mini-suite rooms during each stay. They are great rooms, with a front room so I'm not sitting on my bed the entire stay, but not so big that I lose clothes when I pack up. The full lobby is a...
