Immediately upon walking in the people at the front desk were friendly and accommodating. Their tone of voice suggests that they were looking forward to YOUR arrival.
Of course, like all Hotel Monacos, there is a funky flair to the lobby and rooms. The little features, like zebra or leopard bath robes have made it a distinctive Kimpton mark. This Kimpton unfortunately does not have a hot tub or sauna, which I could really have appreciated, but I also understand the need to maximize space in down town Seattle.
The free wine hour is always a fun way to get a free drink and meet new people from all over. But there is also the bonus of some fun easy entertainment, a magician one night, a guitarist another.
This particular Hotel Monaco also had town bikes to take out. I did not take advantage of this since the location of this hotel is so perfect for everything in downtown Seattle..... well maybe I could have taken them to the Space Needle or Chihuly Museum, but that was a good walk too.
Overall: I would definitely stay here again.
