What a refreshingly interesting hotel! Very close to Union Square, Monaco is very conveniently situated with pretty quirky décor. Staff very welcoming and efficient and always prepared to help. Bedrooms, whilst not large by US standards were well appointed, very clean and colourfully decorated.
Breakfast was available in the 'Parisian' next door bar (never quite sure whether it was part of the hotel). Only downside, was the comparatively early closing of the bar on the nights that we stayed.
The only negative was a post-check out charge that appeared on my credit card - however this was immediately corrected when challenged.
The 5.00 - 6.00 pm free wine tasting was a very civilized and welcoming bonus.
