I've stayed at a number of the top hotels while traveling to Portland for business, but none of them really felt worth returning to. My recent stay at the Hotel Monaco changed that. Comfortable but modern, charming and inventive, excellent service, perfect location, coffee in the morning, wine and beer tasting every evening, not much more that one can ask... More

cute and quirky hotel in great location in portland. walking distance to most. service was above and beyond, the wake up call was actually a personal one, not a recorded message. and who doesn't love the dog, "director of pet services"? lol. room was very clean, good size, and very comfortable.

From the front desk to the unique rooms this hotel never disappoints us. Do not miss the free happy hour in the lobby every evening. My lower score for value was due to the price. We'd love to stay here more often...but it is just too expensive.

A truly elegant yet relaxing and homey atmosphere. The staff strikes a perfect balance between professionalism and friendliness. Morning coffee and paper in the "parlor" is a must.
