Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Monaco Chicago is a 4-star hotel in The Loop in the heart of Chicago. The hotel is very central -- a couple of blocks from the Chicago River and the Magnificent Mile, Chicago's main shopping avenue.

It is a short stroll to Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago, "one of the greatest art museums in the world" (Rough Guides). Willis Tower, the second-tallest building in the US, is 20 minutes' walk from the hotel. Visitors can take the elevator to the Skydeck on the 103rd floor for excellent city views. Museum Campus, home to the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium, is 20 minutes away by public transport.

The hotel's South Water Kitchen restaurant serves classic Midwestern fare and cocktails. As part of the Kimpton group, the hotel provides a host of free extras, including morning tea and coffee in the lobby, a nightly wine hour (5-6pm) and PUBLIC bikes to borrow.

Rooms at the Monaco all have bay windows, yoga mats and animal-print bathrobes. King Deluxe Rooms are a generous 332 square feet, and Queen Rooms are even larger 380 square feet. River View rooms overlook the Chicago River.

Travelzoo tip: Visit the Christkindlmarket (18 November-24 December, 2016), which follows the tradition of the Nuremberg's Christmas market and has stalls selling wooden handicrafts, glühwein and German cookies.

From the press:

  • "Talk about prime location. With rooms overlooking the Chicago River, Hotel Monaco is convenient to the Loop, the Museum Campus, and nightlife and restaurants of River North and the Magnificent Mile" -- Frommer's

  • "Guest rooms reflect the hotel's global-chic aesthetic, with steamer-trunk nightstands and Moroccan lamps" -- Fodor's

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!
