location convenient Michigan Ave, Millennium Park

Pros: well located for what I need /want to do when in Chicago for meetings that are in offices right around the corner
Cons: adequate but could upgrade room desk electric outlets for charging
Convenient to where I need to be for business with the signature Kimpton "yoga mat in the closet, adequate work out area, 5-6pm glass of wine, and morning coffee/tea included." Proximity to good business lunch meeting options. Good value

Water leaking from shower

We were put in a handicap room- no need for that. The shower was a walking in but water would flood the floor resulting in a huge mess. Had to use our towels to sop up the water to prevent from falling in the “pond”. Rude bartender one evening, but everyone else was very friendly and helpful.

What a great experience!

It was my first trip ever to Chicago and this was such a nice hotel, and very friendly staff. Very conveniently placed too. Room even came stocked full with goodies. Even though we brought our own. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

I would stay here again.

Location: We biked the lake front, took an architecture cruise, went to dinner and saw the bean.
The room was luxurious with high ceilings. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and street noise was not an issue at all. The staff were friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Only thing that happened was an elevator was out of service at the end of our stay which did not cause too much disruption to our stay.

Average hotel

I am usually pleasantly surprised with our hotels. Unfortunately, my family was disappointed with Monaco Chicago. Room wasn't completely clean when we checked in; beds/pillows were uncomfortable; the few towels that were provided were threadbare; the bath was in need of a renovation - the handle was broken and the fixtures were old and cheap; the stock of refreshments(hot water for tea, ice water) offered in the lobby was never maintained; they advertised cocktail hour with wines from around the world, but they offered Sutter Home wine. One of these issues would have been tolerable, but not all together. The staff wasn't really interested in satisfying its customers. We wish we had listened to friends who advised staying at the Fairmont, rather than reading Trip Advisor reviews.
