This was one of the hotels my wife and I stayed in during our honeymoon. We stayed here for 5 nights and used it as a base while we traveled around to places like the Columbia River Gorge and the Oregon coastline.
We spent the first couple of days just exploring the Portland area, and the Hotel Monaco has a great central location. It's within walking distance to fantastic restaurants, Voodoo Doughnuts, shopping and movies.
The front desk staff was very helpful, offering a very thorough city map upon check-in as well as some recommendations for local attractions.
The hotel itself is very unique, with lots of stylistic decor that would set itself apart from a more mega chain-type hotel.
Our room was excellent. We had a nice large king bed with a very comfortable mattress, a flat screen TV, and a nice view looking towards Mt. Hood on the top floor. The room also had a nice sitting area separated from the main bedroom with french doors,with a couch, another TV, a fridge, and of course a wide array of honor bar selections.
The hotel was very quiet, we never heard any noise from beside or below us, which was great for resting after a long day exploring Oregon.
Parking is a bit pricey but that's to be expected in downtown.
We ordered room service one night from the Red Star Tavern which is right next to the hotel, and it was very good. I would encourage people to get out and eat outside of the hotel since there are an array of fantastic restaurants all within walking distance. However since we were there for 5 nights, we didn't feel like walking around every single night.
All in all, the Hotel Monaco in Portland was excellent, and I give it a 5/5!
