Great river views

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 29, 2005

Had a great time at the Monaco. We've stayed at the SF version and it was pretty much the same story. Good friendly service, quirky staff and decor, and a goldfish to keep us company when we were in the room.
We were so close to so many good restaurants that we never to around to trying the hotel's place, but we had heard good things about it.
The only problem we had was that the bed was very uncomfortable and gave me a sore neck...waaaaaa!

Unique Quality: Great views of the river from our room and we were able to walk almost every where we went.

Directions: On (in?) the loop right next to the "magnificent mile", on the Chicago river.

Hotel Monaco is great place to...

by written on September 12, 2002

Hotel Monaco is great place to stay. The rooms are interesting, you will know what we mean when you stay there. The staff is great!

Unique Quality: The concierge will help in any way they can. We are from Oklahoma and they called everywhere looking for a t.v. that would broadcast the OU basketball game during March Madness. It was great.

European Luxury Close to The Loop

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2002

The Hotel Monaco offers a unique mix of sophistication and fun. It is not a cookie-cutter type of hotel. The rooms are decorated in bright colors- purples and yellows. it is more like the experience you get staying in a European hotel. I have spent some quality time in the lobby and it is quite cozy- love the fireplace!

They offer unique services such as when they turn down your room for the night, don't be surprised to find a few Tootsie Rolls or Smarties on your pillow, or even a lucky lottery ticket.

One of the pluses/minuses is the location. The hotel is located on Wabash near the river and Wacker Drive. It is not as bustling as being on Michigan Avenue and is on a part of the Mag Mile that has fewer people and dining choices during the evening hours.

Unique Quality: Small, pet friendly boutique hotel. If you're feeling lonely, the staff will provide you with a complimentary pet goldfish to keep you company during your stay.

The restaurant at the hotel is the South Water Cafe. It has wonderful breakfasts and scrumpious dinners.

Directions: Just across the river from the Mag Mile and the Loop business district. It is on the Northeast side of the loop so it is only a few blocks from the Theatre district.
