“Hotel Monaco - fabulous!”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

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

This isn't a cheap hotel,

Room Tip: We only saw our 6th floor room, so no opinion on this

The Monaco is a lovely hotel in a nice neighborhood of downtown Portland. Walkable to any and everything, including the Pearl District. Complimentary ice cream in the afternoon and wine in the early evening. A nice gym and an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful staff. Excellent, comfortable beds, large rooms. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are lovely. Try to get a higher floor, downtown is always noisy

Loved this hotel. Service was impeccable, evening wine tasting great. Coffee in the morning, with a great selection of newspapers, was appreciated. Room was so wonderful and different -- eclectic decorating by someone with a good eye. Fun!

And when I discovered that what I had THOUGHT I had booked for two nights through an outside booking agency, turned out to only be for one -- the manager was so helpful, kind, and managed to get us our same room so we didn't have to move -- for a slightly better price even.

This stay was 50-something me and my 80-something mom, so "friends" is closest to the description of the group. But it was perfect for US. The location was ideal. The beds were super-comfy. And the service, as I said, was above and beyond. Pricier than my usual hotel -- worth the extra $$ for this particular visit. Thank you! Oh -- and Matt, the doorman for most of our stay, was AWESOME. He always managed to direct us to the perfect spot for our breakfast, lunch, dinner. He listened to what WE wanted (like a Starbucks) and managed to find us something as quick and efficient, but with a local flavor. Loved JavaMan for breakfast (2x). Mothers was worth the extra block - great lunch, which he steered us to, rather than letting us revisit Pazzo - which was also wonderful. But he kept us adventuring. Thanks, Matt!

I was very happy with our stay at Hotel Monaco. We were kicking off our honeymoon, and we were welcomed with champagne on ice and rose petals on the bed! The decor was very fun and vibrant, and the staff was very accommodating and friendly. We rode complimentary bikes around town to numerous breweries, restaurants, and a blues festival during our stay. The location is perfect for enjoying downtown Portland. We loved it!

Funtastic long weekend get-a-way at the Hotel Monaco. Great room, the hotel arranged a driver for a wine tasting trip, friendly wine and cheese in lobby in the afternoon to share travel tips and dogs. We loved the dog friendly place. furtastic/funtastic.

I read all the reviews and looked at all the photos so I knew what to expect. The decor is quirky and fun, the staff is very friendly, the location is perfect, the room was really big, the shower had good pressure, the restaurant had an excellent breakfast, the wine hour was a big plus (even though my husband was always napping at that time) and all the dogs were well behaved. We stayed on a floor that did not allow pets and you would never know they were there. We had a great time eating our way through Portland and if we ever go back, this is where we will stay for sure!

I've been there last summer with my girlfriend and both of us appreciated the place, its location and the staff. They've been really friendly and helpful with good suggestions both for visiting and eating the city of Portland.
