Spent a birthday weekend at Hotel Monaco. Ogled this hotel from Wabash, imagining looking out the big window seats. They didn't disappoint. Overlooking Trump Tower, Chicago River and Wacker Drive. Could have just parked ourselves there the whole weekend.
Staff was prompt, presented birthday wishes to my wife, and great sense of humor recognizing that it was National Middle Name Day (at least their sign said it was..... : ) ).
Beautiful décor, comfortable bed. Enjoyed evening wine in front of the fireplace in the Living Room.
As part of our profile, commented that we enjoyed camping. Based on that, we received S'Mores as a bedtime snack......Graham crackers, chocolate ganache, and whipped marshmellow. Yum!
I've looked into other specialty hotels. I'm sure they are very nice. We had a great experience at Monaco and the stay was a fantastic value.
We will go to Hotel Monaco again, 'just because', as well as check out the other Kimpton hotels in Chicago. We'll also look for sister hotels in other cities that our travels take us to.
I can't recommend this hotel enough.
