The Hotel Monaco Chicago lives up to many people's expectations of a Kimpton hotel, boasting bright, funky decor and an excellent location. Looking out over the Chicago River from its seat in the northeast corner of the Loop, this hotel stuns travelers with the Victorian-esque furnishings and bold patterns found throughout the hotel, including in the guest rooms. Accommodations also come with flat-screen televisions, honor bars and yoga mats, while kid- and pet-friendly amenities are available upon request. According to previous guests, fans of the Hotel Monaco style will enjoy a stay in the Chicago version, particularly because of the hotel's excellent customer service. IHG Rewards Club members will be able to get additional perks, like free Wi-Fi access, and can earn and redeem night credits here. But this property has a few unique characteristics worth noting. First, there are in-room spa treatments, and let's not forget the flavorful Midwestern cuisine served at Fisk & Co., which travelers enjoy.

Critic Reviews

Other Awards

  • Frommer's Exceptional
  • AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards



In 2013, the property's multi-year renovation revealed a new look to the lobby (check out the high-gloss red alligator fabric on the registration desk). Rooms reflect the hotel's global-chic aesthetic, with steamer-trunk nightstands and Moroccan lamps. Another nice touch are each room's bay windows.
