Hubby had a business trip to Portland and his company made reservations at Hotel Monaco Portland. There are so many good things to say, I'll just list them
Pet friendly, kid friendly
Free afternoon ice cream, lemonade and art for the family 2-4 p.m.
Free wine, beer, live piano in the wonderful lobby
Free lobby coffee, tea, newspapers
Free gym, and on demand (TV yoga) I used this, great! Occasional Yoga classes at the hotel, ask!
Yoga mats (free) and bicycles ($5) for guests
Lovely room - 2 queens, suite
Fun decor in the rooms - good eye for whimsy
Wonderful staff throughout the hotel
free wifi, at least for Kimpton Reward Club members
Plenty of electrical outlets, multiple power strips just where you needed them
We made great use of our suite, having room service breakfast every day before leaving for our 5 day conference at the Portland Conference Center, just a free metro ride over the Willamette River.
The decor of the hotel was quirky and fun, whimsical but totally comfortable. Time in the hotel was a refuge, but the entire downtown just out the front door beckoned us outside during our free time. the concierege directed us to one great restaurant just 2 blocks away - Little Bird, and we found others on our owm: Urban Farmer next door, the hotel's Red Star Tavern & Roast House. I had lunch at Luc Lac Vietnamese Kitchen several days too. over a thousand restaurants in Portland, something for every tast and budget.
Just as I am typing this review, I see a $20 per day coupon for the adjoining Red Star Tavern through TripAdvisor. So check here first for some discounts!!
If you select this fabulous hotel you will have a great time
