Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located where the Mag Mile meets the Chicago River, the AAA 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 clock in at a generous 332 square feet, and Queen Rooms are 380 square feet, while high ceilings add 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 pool on site, 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.

Enjoyed Most: Cool vibe. Day bed in the window was neat to hang out with the river and watch the world go by
Other Comments: Solid service, comfy bed, quality toiletries. Room service was unnecessarily grandiose - it was trying too hard to be farm to table but came across a bit pompous on the menu and ended up being a bit limited for me.
