"Great place to stay in downtown."
The hotel is in a good location, within easy walking distance to all the places you want to shop. The decor is GREAT and everything was clean. And even though I don't travel with animals, it was clearly a pet friendly hotel. :) I wish there was a more substantial breakfast in the morning, but that won't stop us from staying there again. I would recommend […] this as a good place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Monaco Portland, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks so much for your recent review on Expedia. I was happy that you enjoyed your stay and plan on returning. I did note your comment about the hotel being pet friendly. While it is true we are pet friendly we do offer hypo-allergenic rooms that a pet has never stayed in. These rooms use synthetic bedding (no down or feathers). We use special vacuum cleaners equipped with Heppa filters that significantly reduce or eliminate dust, dander and airborne particulate. We use these same filters in the heating and air conditioning units. We have special hypo-allergenic soaps, shampoos, and lotions available on request. We have a special gluten free items available thru our In Room Dining menu, and we offer gluten free items in our private bar. We have 75 rooms (three floors) that are hypo allergenic and pet free. On your next visit if you want a room that a pet has never stayed just request pet free or hypo-allergenic. Thanks Craig Craig Thompson General Manager
As the other reviewers wrote, This is a very nice hotel because of the staff. Nothing more to add... great experience overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice stay. Overall a great experience. But, for us, a little expensive especially for the amount of time we were actually in our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed at the Hotel Monaco because my sister was in hospice and this hotel was centrally located. The Front Desk staff found out why I was there and sent the most thoughtful amenity and was constantly asking after my well being. When we had a service for my sister, the hotel was very kind and sent flowers. The staff was extremely attentive and very […] kind. Whenever I needed anything, (directions to an extra box) I was always met with a smile and a resolution to my query. Everyone I met from wait staff to housekeeping to valet were very always very nice and accommodating. This is a boutique hotel and the room was beautiful; in fact the whole hotel was really pretty. I could not have picked a better hotel if I had wanted to and would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone stay at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay for couples getaway."
Great place to stay for a couple night out. It was clean, the staff was helpful and friendly. They had a nice cocktail party with beers and wines from the area. The pillows were mediocre but otherwise everything was real nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the first we have ever been to Portland and we could have not chosen a better place to stay! From the beginning the staff at the Monaco made you feel welcome. And though we arrived early, 10am, our room was ready for us. The amenities made staying at the Monaco worthwhile; coffee and hot chocolate in the morning and wine/beer tasting in the […] afternoon was great. The maid service was impeccable and efficient. The room itself, although smaller than others in the hotel was quite nice in its decor and spaciousness. Great for a couple on a getaway. The location was fantastic also. We took advantage of public transportation even from the airport. We walked to almost everywhere we wanted making renting a car a mute point. Awesome way to see Portland!

"Best boutique hotel West of the river."
Great little boutique hotel. I like the room and the decor. However, the best part is the service. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. Overnight parking is a bit pricey, but the valets really came through with their excellent directions and suggestions of where to dine and wine. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Portla […] nd. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfort, Style, Convenience"
A lovely, comfortable hotel with very nice people and a relaxed, fun vibe. While it was convenient and in walking distance to everything I needed, there was a stretch within the block that was not the most pleasant for walking solo--lots of street people/panhandling.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful room, great service. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Won't be disappointed staying at the Monaco."
Very quality hotel and service. Rooms a bit small and the tiny window facing a building 20 feet away made the room a bit "dark", but not much to do about that. Don't know about other exposures. Great gym.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an outstanding experience. The staff was very kind and helpful. The room was large and well designed. The hot cider in the afternoon and wine hour in the evening was a really nice touch, as it allowed guests to mingle in the lovely "living room". I can't speak to parking, as we took amtrak down from Seattle and walked from the station. I can […] say that the hotel is very conveniently located. We walked everywhere which is my favorite way to explore a city. All in all, a fantastic experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel. Great Location. DOG FRIENDLY"
I love this hotel. As a matter of fact, I've never had an experience at a Kimpton hotel that I did not absolutely love. The hotel is in a great area in the center of everything. The room was very clean and the staff were very attentive. Gold star!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pimping at the Kimpton"
This place rocks. They provided everything we asked for and so much more! We had a fabulous stay and cannot wait to come back again. Made my first trip to Portland that much more memorable. LOVE!Genuine Expedia guest review
I had a great time. I was a little annoyed at the nickle and diming, but that's a problem with just about all hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great places in Portland"
The hotel was excellent in every way. I highly recommend it and am glad to know more about Kimpton Hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
Warm, homey atmosphere, yet casual elegance. Fabulous ambiance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Things to do"
Ask hotel valets about where to go. They were more helpful then any website or map you can view. Recomendations were amazing and would of never thought to go where they mentioned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend at the Hotel Monaco"
My family and I were in Portland for the Portland Marathon> The hotel was close to everything we wanted to do, restaurants shopping and walking. Hotel is also very dog friendly including a welcome Lilly and Lola sign in the lobby. We loved the hosted wine bar between 5:00 and 6:00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the best."
My boyfriend and I were in town for the Portland marathon. We stayed five nights at Hotel Monaco and it was impressive from the start. The hotel staff is incredibly hospitable and accomodating. I requested a high floor and recieved a room on the 10th. (The highest). We only encountered a couple of hiccups that included a mishap with room service (coffee […] ordered wasnt actually brewed) and our ice bucket was rusted. These were fixed immediately. Their complimentary wine/beer hour in the lobby is fantastic. It isnt just wine and beer, they have face painting, video games, an art easel and some delicious type of snack ALL COMPLIMENTARY. We would absolutely stay in this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing Hotel In the Center of everything!"
Hotel Monaco went above and beyond for us on our honeymoon! They truly care about their customers and have so much creativity and detail involved in every thing they do! I've never been so happy with a hotel stay before...we will be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Service at a Nice Hotel"
This is a nice hotel, but what really makes it a 5 are their people (and 13 week old Daffney the hotel pup in training)! Charlotte at the front desk welcomed us and gave us a great overview of the area and things to do. Valet was quick to help us tape up a box we needed to check. And finally once home and we realized we left a few things behind, Mary […] in housekeeping was quick to get back to us and quick to ship our items to us. We've stayed at Kimpton hotels before and have always enjoyed ourselves. The wine hour is a great way to meet other travelers. This was the best yet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff at the Hotel Monaco went out of their way to make our visit great. Will definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome and comfortable stay"
Our room was very large and accommodating. I took lots of pictures of our room because of how cool it looked and how well it was decorated. We felt lucky to have such a cool room. Most hotels are very boring, generic and unwelcoming, hotel Monaco is a beautifully colorful experience and I would love to come back and get a different room just to see […] how cool that one looks!

"Great hotel with a lot of personality"
The staff was extremely kind and helpful. They had great suggestions for places to eat and were more then helpful when I told them I had forgotten my computer charger. Best experience I have ever had!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quirky and Fun"
Hotel Monaco is a fun, quirky hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. The hotel is decorated in bright colors and a mismash of styles. The rooms are generously sized. The hotel had a breakfast drink bar in the morning and snacks in the afternoon - perfect for a quick drink/bite before heading out. Location is great for downtown access -- and is right […] by public transportation stops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place, excellent location"
We love Kimpton and have never been disappointed. Really loved this place and such a great location. No view, but great stay nonetheless!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of Perks at the Hotel Monaco"
Fun stay while sightseeing in Portland. Comfortable room, friendly people and lots of perks. "Wine hour" each day included wine, beer, or a vodka drink and a small Hors d'oeuvre. On our last day it included an array of Voodoo Doughnuts (last Thursday of the month we found out) that was definitely worth spoiling your appetite over. Also coffee in the […] AM and an ice-cream bar in the afternoon is offered in the lobby, and bikes! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best stay ever!"
Hands down the best hotel experience we've had to date. Arrived late after a long drive and we're upgraded to a suite - beautifully decorated, clean and enormous. Only spent one night but we felt like kings. We took out a couple complimentary bicycles in the morning and took a ride to VooDoo Donuts and the arial tram before checking out. Parking is […] pricey, but this hotel is amazing. We hope to visit again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel Monaco-----pretty disappointing"
I asked to stay on a higher floor in a quiet room. Instead, I was given a room on the second floor that was not quiet at all. Each morning before 5 am there was a lot of loud noise (I think trash removal or something going on with loud trucks). This made sleeping quite challenging for me. Also, the hotel did not feel well maintained or very upscale […] to me. I will not stay at this hotel during visits to Portland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Really expected more given other reviews..."
My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at the hotel, and for lack of a better phrase, the room and our experience was very OK. We stayed in a regular room with a queen bed. There was little to no space to put our things. Besides the closet, there were a total of three small drawers to store all of our things that were not meant to hang.There was only a […] small table in the room (which was covered with a variety of brochures, coffee maker, and other standard hotel items) so we struggled to find adequate space to put our things. The bathroom had the same problem. There was essentially no where to put anything. This resulted in a constant shuttling of toiletries in and out of the bathroom every time someone needed to get ready. This is addition to the fact that the bathroom had no ventilation/fan, so you had to leave the door open when showering in order to not fog up the room. Further, the bed was not very comfortable; i.e. springs jabbing into your sides. This was in addition to the terribly uncomfortable down pillows... We requested, and received, foam pillows for nights 2-4, but they were just as bad. Add in being woken up at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday by some very noisy and drunk guests, and my take away is that I will look for a different place to stay on my next trip to Portland. The icing on the cake was a person at the front desk who was quite snippy when we asked about a place to grab some quick food before we left for a hike and stated we wanted something local, not Starbucks.

"Great location, great service"
My husband and I thought that the Monaco was fantastic. We were able to check in early, no problem. The service was great, the staff was friendly. They loaned us a couple of bikes free of charge. The room was clean and quiet (which was a big plus after our last stay). We also got a really great deal on the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel with elegant and unique décor. The evening wine tasting was a very fun addition!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good option for a stay near Seattle airport."
Efficient and freindly check in. Comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Go for it if you do not mind staying in a 'no brand' hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2 Stars at Best"
This hotel was not anywhere near a 4 star hotel. The hotel was old and shabby. It smelled old. Like a flophouse converted to a luxury hotel. They just forgot to add the luxury. I was very disappointed and will NEVER stay at a Kimpton hotel again for fear that they under deliver on their promise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable - loved the lobby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to stay"
During the check in process there seemed to be a mix up with Hotels.com. They didn't have our reservation but that was no problem for the wonderful front desk staff! Our room was upgraded to a premiere suite, free cocktail coupons and free parking. If that wasn't enough they sent up to our room champagne and chocolates for our 25th anniversary. We were […] treated like royalty, an experience we won't soon forget. So many restaurants within walking distance. Close to the riverfront and the weekend market too. Can't say enough about Hotel Monaco. The most elegant hotel we've stayed in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I loved this hotel, and the staff members were all very helpful! The concierge was able to find me some awesome tours that got me to places that I didn't think I could go to in a short visit to Portland. I would absolutely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Service, pet sitting available"
The staff is wonderful. From the Valet, Bell Man, Front Desk. these people are fabulous. Cleaning staff came through and cleaned the carpet in the pet friendly room which made a huge difference with my dogs reaction to the room.The hotel is located right near everything, shopping, great restaurants, easy walks. The front staff will pet sit your animal. […] Great, no worries about putting my pet in the car, no worries about barking. He had a great time. Almost a shame to leave. I was upgraded to a room with a hide a bed couch but truthfully the arms were so low on it and the back pillows so large it was strictly for show. The only negatives again was the carpet, which was addressed immediately. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean and comfortable place to stay; however, the room was weirdly decorated and over priced for what it was. Valet parking was way over priced!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Free bike use, great happy hour"
Excellent staff. Helpful in every way. Great location. We parked the car and walked everywhere or took great public transport a minute away. Kids used hotel bikes to explore the city. Happy hour was fun and relaxing. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
