Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located where the Mag Mile meets the Chicago River, the CAA 4-Diamond Hotel Monaco offers “a mix of Art Deco elegance and bright, quirky boutique flair” that makes it “one of the city’s best boutiques” (

Rooms at the Monaco all feature bay windows and luxury bath amenities, along with fun touches like animal-print bathrobes. King Deluxe rooms and Queen rooms have high ceilings that lend to the spacious feeling. Suites offer extra living space and spa bathrooms featuring tubs “so big they just might qualify as wave pools” (Frommer's).

While there’s no on-site pool, kids will love the welcome gift they receive on arrival and hula hoops in the fitness rooms, as well as a goldfish that can be delivered to the room to keep the family company. (Parents will love that babysitting can be arranged as well.)

Guests are privy to all the fun perks that come along with a Kimpton stay: nightly wine hour, complimentary coffee and tea each morning in the lobby, a yoga mat in every room and pet-friendly rooms with no extra fees for man’s best friend. (The concierge can even arrange a professional dog walker during your stay for an extra fee.) Kimpton Karma Rewards members also get free Wi-Fi and a $10 credit to the minibar.

The Monaco is perfectly located to launch a shopping trip on the Mag Mile or a cultural exploration of Chicago. The Art Institute and Millennium Park are a short stroll away, while the Museum Campus, home to the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium, are a quick cab ride south. The shops of Michigan Avenue are just across the river, and the entire city beckons from multiple bus and L train options nearby.

The 8th floor was being remodeled, and of course they put us on the 8th floor. We were woken up early by wallpaper being installed in the hallway.

The location is perfect being close to Michigan Ave, River North, Millennium Park and the Loop. The hotel has an exceptional staff that is both friendly and helpful. The room size is nice and the bed and bedding was comfortable. I would recommend the Monaco Chicago to anyone looking for a great experience in Chicago.

Being pet friendly on a couple floors makes the Monaco Chicago the perfect place for responsible pet owners. It was a real treat to be able to travel with my dogs. The lobby is beautifully appointed and the happy hour is a great perk.

It was a wonderful surprise to see the Hot Cocoa Bar when we arrived. Snow was falling, temps were crisp and it was a great treat to take to the room while we unpacked. Thanks!
