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” ( 

Every room and suite was renovated in early 2019 -- with the River View rooms still featuring the bay windows that are the Monaco's signature -- adding new tufted headboards, 55" flat-screen TVs with streaming capabilities, Bluetooth-compatible alarm clocks and updated Wi-Fi (free for IHG Rewards Club members). Bathrooms feature marble accents and rainfall showerheads.

Guests are privy to all the fun perks that come along with a Kimpton stay: a nightly wine hour plus a new nightcap service curated by the hotel's Fisk & Co. restaurant. There's also complimentary coffee and tea each morning in the lobby, a yoga mat in every room and pet-friendly rooms with no extra fees (the concierge can even arrange a professional dog walker for an extra fee). 

Fisk & Co. serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, but the focus is on Belgian-bistro-inspired cuisine, specifically four kinds of mussels and frites plus a wide variety of beers (and don't miss the $1 oysters during happy hour on Monday-Friday). The Monaco isn't quite a riverfront hotel -- you're about half a block away -- but some rooms do have river views. It's also a great location for exploring the Mag Mile, the Loop and Millennium Park, as you're right in the middle of all three.

Hotel is great but my travelzoo discount was not applied. I'm still waiting for charges to be reversed. I caught the error and pointed it out to front desk. They were nice and said they would correct it. Hopefully my credit card is still showing full price of room plus $100 deposit fee. Also, we were asked if we drank a hotel water from the basket. I said no. Front desk was nice and said they'd reverse the charge. I feel confident they will correct all billing errors. But until I see the correction post on my credit card I would tell others to be careful about booking them through Teavelzoo. Front desk said it's a new program for them. I just dont think they have glitches worked out yet. Once they do, it will be nice.
