We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for four nights on a pleasure trip to Chicago. The hotel is really in a great location because it is within walking distance of many of the sites in Chicago. Even though it was freezing cold in Chicago, we were able to comfortably walk to many of the good shopping areas and to restaurants. We walked easily to Millennium Park and to the Art Institute. We also walked comfortably to the Architecture Foundation to participate in tours.
The personnel at the front desk of the Monaco were quite helpful in giving us directions and also in helping us figure out routes for the public transportation system which is also easily accessible from the hotel. They were always pleasant and very accommodating. We asked to change rooms one day so that we could have a larger window and they willingly met our request.
The deluxe river view rooms are a little small but the view from the window (particularly the rooms with larger windows) is quite nice particularly at night when the river area is lit up. The beds were comfortable and generally everything that we needed was available. We did not particularly care to go downstairs to get coffee in the morning and they did not hesitate to get us a coffee maker for our room. They also have a wine hour for guests each day which is a very nice treat. Overall it was a pleasure to stay here.
