I booked this hotel for the start of a bachelorette week in Willamette. I had never been to Portland before other than a brief stopover so this was truly my first look around. First off, great location -- incredibly walkable to the entire downtown. Next, the rooms were perfect - not crazy plush but the exact feel you are hoping...

Hello tcohen, Congratulations on your celebration, thanks so much for joining us! Always fun to celebrate a special event. And I'm glad our friends with VooDoo made it even more special; they are the local legend. Have a great spring and please get back for the honeymoon! Robert General Manager Kimpton Monaco Portland

Can't say enough good things about the hotel and staff. I will now always look to stay with this hotel company. They have it right from the decor to the beds. The location is great and they have a great happy hour with live music and local beer and wine. By the way all complimentary. I hope they keep up...

We recently visited Seattle and since we have been there before, decided to take the train down to Portland for a quick, less-than-48-hours trip. We booked the Kimpton Monaco Hotel based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, the manager's responses to comments, and the overall unique quality the hotel offers. Unfortunately, our train had to turn back due to...

We had a great stay, staff was very accommodating. We had a family event and were able to get two suites together at short notice. With two babies, a dog, and great grandmother, all the great help was appreciated. They also recommended and made reservations at two excellent restaurants that were perfect for us---Mama Mia's and The Original. We highly...

Hi there Patwgray, many thanks for your visit. Glad to see you made it out to check out the neighborhood; Portland's got a pretty high bar when it comes to great food, we're not the only game in town! Hope you can see us again soon. Robert General Manager Kimpton Monaco Portland

Slow check-in, slowest internet connection in America, slow restaurant service ( you want pepper on that? Well, go find it for yourself!) The room is lovely, but I don't have all day to wait for basic services. I come from laid-back Southern California, but oh boy, I'm not this laid back. Pick things up folks! Especially your internet service!

They have an amazing lobby area that people actually hang out in with lots of seating, boardgames, coffee, etc. The hotel lets you get food from the restaurant and drinks from the bar and eat/drink here - WITH YOUR DOG!

We stayed at this hotel for a short one night stay in February. Everything was very good. I enjoyed the beautiful lobby area including the service and piano music in the early evening. Wish we had more time to assess things and try the restaurant.

Everything was warm and friendly at this hotel. It's decorated in a welcoming, eccentric, cool way. Room was large, quiet and comfortable! The staff knows the area very well and we're able to answer questions that we had. My only complaint is the water pressure in the shower needs to be improved big time. This should be higher ranked for...
