I can't imagine ever having a complaint with the Monaco. Every time I stay here, no matter what city, it's always close to perfect. I stayed in a Mediterranean suite. I would suggest looking at the hotel website to see the different room options. I chose this room for the size, 675 square feet and I like corner rooms. However, if their "premier guest room" would have been available, I would have chose it: It is 850 square feet. No separate living space and not in the corner...but probably less expensive. Again, it's all about personal preference.
Also I would note the lack of dining/bar/lounge options (within close proximity). I traveled in winter, and it was freezing. Walking a couple blocks when it's 20 degrees outside is not fun. I ate at their restaurant, and it was good. Great happy hour specials! But I would have preferred more restaurant options on the block.
As far as traffic noise, I heard none. I think this hotel has only 7 floors, and I was on the 6th. Traffic was nonexistent anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much. (I stayed on a Friday night.) Catching a cab is easy. The bellhop does that for you, and you can stay inside the lobby if it's cold outside.
At check in, my room was not ready. It actually wasn't ready until about 3:00. I realize check in time at most hotels isn't until about 3:00, but I have never had to wait if I arrive early. I imagine this was because of the room I booked. Probably not too many? Another reason to always keep in mind your room choice and your time of arrival.
The room itself was great...but cold. The windows were old and ceilings were very high, giving the hotel a lot of charm, but at the same time making it difficult to keep warm. I just cranked the heater up as high as it would go, and it was fine after awhile.
Staff was great. No problems at all. Other guests were friendly as well.
I guess this might sound like a negative review, but really it's not. I just like to point out the things I would like to know about a hotel, instead of too personal of an opinion.
I would definitely stay here again, and I would certainly recommend this hotel to a friend.
