This hotel is amazing! You can walk all over and come back to this fabulous place and relax! The staff was wonderful! I had to get my car a number of times and the valet staff were so nice about it and just left it close for me. Had ordered room service and they were quick and the food was...

Hello Sherry, thanks very much for the kind words. Completely agree that our Valet team are the best; we hear it all the time and could not be prouder of their hard work. Great answer as well on the issue of 'quaint'; we're a very eclectic boutique hotel with great service, or at least that's our goal! Robert General Manager...

I wish I had more time to spend here! The hotel was beautiful - both my room and the lobby. Live music during the wine hour was a nice treat but the best part was the friendliness of the staff, who recognized me throughout my stay. A special thanks to room service for getting my breakfast so quickly when I...

Had an absolutely wonderful stay at this hotel. Not only was it beautiful, comfortable and in the perfect location for exploring downtown Portland, but when my husband left an embarrassing number of personal items behind, the hotel shipped everything to us with no charge for doing so. Special thanks to Mary Odom for being so kind and helpful. The staff...

It was difficult to decide which Kimpton to choose so I hope I can help those undecided travelers like I was. Pro's: Hotel is only a block from light rail (only $2.50 per person from airport) Block from awesome food truck lunch area 2 blocks from VooDoo Donuts 2 blocks from Enterprise and Hertz (local) to avoid $44 parking.

We had a great stay at the Hotel Monaco in Portland. The design of the hotel is really contemporary and it's super clean. They have a wonderful social hour, which includes drinks, appetizers, and live music. The staff was attentive and friendly. We even requested a "companion" goldfish be brought to our room. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Whether traveling to Portland on my own or with my family, I stay at Hotel Monaco whenever I can get a room here. What I love: the staff is always welcoming and helpful; the rooms and public spaces are wonderfully characterful; and the evening happy hour is always a highlight.
