OK add me to the chorus. What a great place. Was lucky enough to snag one of the 'grand suites' for the family (2 kids) at a great rate (tip: Kimpton has great rates for AAA members).
The hotel is Cosmopolitan yet funky, classy but lively. The lobby, usually something you pass through to get to your room, was a GREAT place to hang out (especially given that our kids love dogs, and there were plenty of them there).
The room was more like an apartment, with high ceilings, two bathrooms, and enough separation between the room and the hotel hallway that you feel like you're in an apartment, not a hotel.
The only negative i can think of was that the pullout sofa was kind of hard to open, but really, if you gotta reach that far to complain, you know you've found something good.
In sum, we found that the Monaco is the perfect place to stay in Portland (I previously stayed at The Nines on business, and while it's luxe, it just doesn't jibe with the vibe of this particular city). I highly recommend it.
