I hesitate to write this review as I prefer to keep some of my favorites to myself. However this is my senior contributor contribution... so here goes. I am in Chicago a lot, 12-14 times a year. The Monaco is a few short blocks to the loop and Miracle Mile/Michigan Ave so the location is superb.
This is a boutique hotel and the front desk staff has always been friendly to me, no attitude here at all. Rooms are big by Chicago standards and the rooms are clean. Note the carpets in the room are clean. Housekeeping is "on the ball here" The decor is bizarre. Lots of conflicting colors in the room. Just don't wake up with a hangover and you'll be fine. Speaking of hangovers, you are next door (it connects) to the Southwater Kitchen. Do yourself a favor and get a seat at the bar and order the Cuban sandwich. It is made in front of you in their gas fired over behind the bar and it is made with pork belly. Wow, what great smells and you'll not go wrong with any other food items here, great restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Overall this is a great hotel for couples and for business travel. No complaints and I will be back
