“Host Hotel for Wedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

My wife and I chose this hotel as our host hotel for our wedding weekend and we weren't disappointed; it was a great choice. All of the guests had a great time and felt very welcomed by the staff. Beautiful lobby with extremely nice, clean, and comfortable rooms. Very accessable to the desireable Inner Harbor area of downtown Baltimore. The B&O American Brasserie is the bar / restaurant on site. Upscale, classy bar which easily accomodated our large group of party-goers for a get-together after the rehearsal dinner. As with any hotel in the city, parking was not cheap but that is my only complaint. Great and accomodating staff and a wonderful experience. You know a hotel is good when you're standing outside and a tour bus pulls up and out come the members of Journey who just happened to be staying at this hotel the same weekend our wedding was taking place. Would highly recommend from anything from for a couples get-away weekend to being a host hotel for a wedding. Extremely satisfied.

Visited this hotel for the third time for 2 days. We traveled to Baltimore to see 2 orioles games back to back. Been nothing but impressed before, and that was the case again this time. We arrived around 1:30, and our room wasn't ready, but check in is listed at 3. We were hoping to get in early after a 3 hour drive. So 3 rolled around and our room still wasn't ready. The lady at the desk said they had granted the previous guest a late check out, this bothered me, and I had some questions about this for Channel at the front desk. I could tell that she was uncomfortable about this as well. So, this is where it the review could have gotten negative, but the situation was handled like this. She comped us lunch in the hotel restaurant, which was great, and then gave upgraded us to a King Suite. This completely made up for any feelings I had about a delayed check in. The suite was gorgeous, the bathroom was really impressive. We were in and out a lot over 2 days. The front door staff was great, holding the door, helping w bags, and getting us a ride. The Monaco sets the standard for us. We have now become "hotel snobs" the others just aren't good enough.

First, it's a Kimpton Hotel which means creative, clean and classy. Housed in the former B&O Railroad corporate headquarters, which is classic old architecture style on the outside. Fab and fun and eclectic on the inside and also the room (ours was). Great location, three short blocks to the Inner Harbor area. Professional, friendly staff. Wine hour is between 4-6P in the cozy lobby-sitting area where British-sounding modern pop music is piped in. All very nice for watching other hotel guests while sipping free wine! Room was very clean, artsy-colorfully decorated (not your usual bland beige and gray) and large bathroom with walk in shower. Super quiet room. The hotel restaurant (B&O American Cafe) offers creative, delicious food and a fun bar area, too. Anything, everything, the staff is there to get what you need. Loved our stay!

As with all Kimptons I have stayed at, this hotel is simply amazing. The building has been there for ages, but Kimpton has done an amazing job remodeling the inside. The entrance into the bottom floor is a bit awkward, but the lobby and hotel room are top notch. I love all the attention to detail and the business friendly touches such as the USB chargers and extra power ports by the bed.

Even though our Baltimore family lives in the Northwest suburbs, staying downtown in this nicely renovated hotel was a real treat. it was convenient for everything we did around the Inner harbor and at Fell's Point and everywhere else we went during the weekend. The high ceilings , nicely redone bathrooms, and spacious rooms enhanced the experience. They also did a lot of little things that made the stay nicer. For example, larger print on the bottles of shampoo and conditioner, plenty of light, real blackout shades whihc kept the morning sun out until we wanted it. the staff could not have been nicer, particularly the parking valets and doormen. We used our car a lot and they were uniformly helpful and efficient. I['m sorry that we didn't get to try the restaurant or the B &O Bar, but maybe next time. I have always liked the B & O Railroad Museum, having traveled on the B & O as a kid. Maybe i missed any train decorations, but that would have been nice to see in the hotel. I'm sure that we'll come back to the Hotel Monaco. We have stayed in a number of other hotels in Baltimore for business or pleasure. This one compares favorably and was a pleasant surprise.

Located in the former headquarters of the legendary B&O Railway, this historic building is now home to a hip, urban hotel near the Inner Harbor. The hotel staff are friendly and make an extra effort to make one feel welcome.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Monaco last night and we can not stop raving about our time! We stayed in a King Premiere Spa room. When we first walked in we were amazed at how large it felt not being a suite! The high ceilings and huge windows were amazing. The bed was comfy and inviting and the room overall just had a clean and sophisticated feel. The bathroom was beautiful as well. I was surprised to see a list of other compliemtary things they could provide if you forgot anything at home! I usually am not a fan of hotel blow dryers but was happy to find a higher powered one under the sink! The spa shower and tub were AMAZING and perfect for our romantic getaway. We were even treated to a compliemtary bottle of champagne! We had booked the aquarium package which got us untimed tickets to the aquarium so we had no wait in line! Thanks for a great night Hotel Monaco!

The only thing I was disappointed with was that we didn't have a fish waiting for us in our room when we had booked the aquarium package. I noticed a paper in our room that said "by request" so we asked in the lobby at 9pm and they were all out for the evening. Of all things that could have gone wrong, it was minor however we were disappointed because we are kids at heart and have no pets at home so we were excited to have one for the night!
