The lobby works are a bit of a pain, Kimpton lobbies are often nice! Aside from that our experience was good. Our initial room had a connecting door and a nightmare neighbour, eventually we had to request to move, and we were kindly moved to a suite which was perfectly quiet. The staff couldn't have been more helpful throughout. Great experience.

Hotel Monaco is one of our favorite places to visit! We make an annual trip to Chicago during the holiday season and have been staying there for many years. For us it's like coming home and seeing old friends. It is currently going through some growing pains...lobby renovation, relocation of amenities, etc. However, all of this is listed on their website. The service and hospitality are both still there. Take some time to enjoy the window seats...my favorite place to hang out. And, say hello to our good friend, Antonio. He is Chicago's Best!
